Unannounced wedding guests can be a total pain, except when it's powerhouse couple Beyoncé and Jay Z, of course! While on vacation in Portofino, Italy, Blue Ivy's parents accidentally stumbled upon a quiet, seaside wedding.
In honor of Beyoncé's 33rd birthday, the couple planned to take a tour of the Divo Martino, a local church, last Saturday. Little did they know, a wedding was already underway. Queen Bey graciously stopped to congratulate the couple and posed for photos (seen above and below) with the happy bride who was rocking a flower crown.
A source tells E! News that the bride "was so happy Beyoncé stopped." (Um, who wouldn't be?!)

While the superstar duo certainly make for an incredible big-day surprise, they're not the only celebs to take on the role of wedding crasher.
Just last week, Snoop Dogg surprised newlyweds Joseph Scheller and Neesha Ghadiali at their Hard Rock Hotel, Chicago wedding.
In June, tennis pro Serena Williams — clad in a leopard print bathing suit! — joined Ruth and Sam Kormoi at their Miami Beach nuptials. "I told my friend Eddie, 'Eddie, go and see if she wouldn't mind taking a picture.' So Eddie went and asked. He said she was ecstatic and would be happy to. She was even asking, 'Let me take a picture with the bride and groom!," the groom told People.
In 2012, Taylor Swift and then-boyfriend Conor Kennedy crashed the wedding of Liam Kerr and Kyle Kennedy. Unfortunately, their appearance was not a welcome one, and the bride ultimately asked the pair to leave. In April, though, Swift surprised a fan at her bridal shower, with a KitchenAid mixer in hand, and the bride-to-be was delighted.
