(CNN) - Mitt Romney's motorcade got a warm welcome Wednesday from a Jewish wedding party in New Jersey.
As the presumptive GOP nominee pulled up to the site of his fund-raising event in Lakewood Township, a family posing outside for photos abandoned the bride and groom and darted for Romney's car in the parking lot, cameras in hand.

Romney's SUV pulled around a corner to a back entrance, with at least 10 members of the wedding party following the car. According to pool reports, several were halted by a wood fence, which one man tried to scale.
Intervening, Secret Service agents also stopped the chasing wedding party.
"Oh you're Secret Service," one woman said, as she was asked by an agent to move back. "We just want to see Romney."
The campaign told reporters that Romney would take a photo with the bride and groom while at the site.
Update: A pool reporter spoke with Lisa Ben-Haim, the mother of the groom, who clarified that the individuals chasing the motorcade on Wednesday were not involved in the wedding but had been standing near the wedding party outside. The mother did not know the individuals but guessed they were trying to catch a glimpse of Romney.
The candidate stopped to take photos with the group after the fund-raising event, Ben-Haim confirmed.
"He came in and really gave all of his attention to my son and my now-daughter-in-law," she said.
She added that Romney lingered with the wedding party longer than expected, as the campaign originally said he only had time for two photos.
"We ended up taking many more, and we took videos," she said. "He was very gracious. And we were all telling him we were happy that he came to our wedding because we are all very strong staunch supporters of his."
