They were getting married the next day. He posed for a pic with the soon-to-wed couple that night. And then the actor showed up the next day, dressed in "basically the same outfit as the night before", according to Splash News.

The movie star posed with the bride and groom and was apparently "nice and down to earth about the whole ordeal."

The actor, who stuck out among the tuxes and tulle in a black T-shirt and jeans, didn't just pose for a pic with the newlyweds, either - he also joined the entire wedding party for a group shot.

It boasts a 7,500 sqft spa, horse riding stables offering two-hour guided trail-riding, an 18-hole championship golf course, and 9.2 miles of wilderness hiking trails.
