Fortunately for newlyweds and Aerosmith fans Jeffrey Roseman and Shirley Ramos, Steven Tyler happened to be walking their way as they were celebrating their wedding in Washington, D.C., last weekend.
"Look who happened to walk by our wedding at 4seasons DC, this past wknd,posed for pics w/ half the guests!" Roseman wrote on Twitter alongside a photo of the Aerosmith frontman posing with the happy couple.
Roseman told ABCNews.com that Tyler was walking past their reception at the Four Seasons Hotel when the couple's photographer snagged him for the photo.
Other guests soon followed with their own cameras.
"He must have posed for 15 different pictures," said Roseman, a Manhattan commercial real estate broker. "He could not have been more gracious."
Roseman said Tyler appeared to be enjoying a rare night off, as he was due to perform in Virginia the following day. Roseman invited the former "American Idol" judge to join the festivities, but he said the singer's bodyguard steered him away.
"Trust me, he would have been there," Roseman said.
Nevertheless, the newlyweds won't soon forget their wedding day surprise.
"It was just an amazing part of an amazing event. It brought such an incredible energy. Everyone was so thrilled," Roseman said, adding, "We're huge fans."
In fact, the couple included one of Aerosmith's songs on their wedding CD. It was "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing."
