(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."
Certainly the pictures the family took will be able to tell their grandchildren that "this is the man who ran for President but didn't win because he was known as the King of Flip Flopping"
Oh no people do like Romney, I can see angry Democrats spinning this one out of control.
"We just want to see Romney."
And we just want to see his tax returns for the last 10 years so which one will I die waiting for?
jew vote again robmr nice try.
President Shimon Peres and the Minister of Defense Ehud Barack were telling CNN’s Wolf Blitzer in separate interviews which aired Monday, July 30, 2012, that no other
President has had as close a tie with Israel as President Obama currently has with regards to security.
Barack: Under President Obama, he is doing in regards to help our security more than anyone I can remember in my life.
Blitzer: More than any other Presidents like, LBJ, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush?
Barack: Yes, in terms of the support for our security, the
cooperation of our intelligence, sharing of sorts in a very open way,
even when there are differences.
Peres: When I look at the record of President Obama concerning the
major issue of security, I think it’s a highly satisfactory record from
an Israeli point of view.
And Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has echoed these same remarks in past interviews on CNN.
Prove that they were chasing you to take pictures liar.
Are You Kidding Me....???? Clue me, whats the :Total joke"? I need a laugh.
Woman in California...Does it Matter??? Whaaaaaaaa!
Ten people chasing after him to get a picture.....and that's news? Actually I guess it is......I wouldn't have thought that many people in the entire country would want a picture like that.........wow.........he has a fan base of ten whole people. Impressive!
This was in New Jersey... Are they sure those were cameras in the people's hands?
Obviously they were all VERY excited to get their picture taken with the next President of the United States.
At the Harley Davidson store in Fort Myers, the Budweiser Clydesdales also drew a huge crowd, and at this point, they appear to be more presidential than Mittens.
And Mitts lies just keep on coming.
Aww now, a feel good story about Willard. Maybe now his gullible, small base of supporters will stop crying about CNNs coverage. One can only hope.
Romney has already lost. look at the polls. Like romney said, he cant win without the majority of the American women and American latino vote. again look at the polls
How DEEP underground will Robmey have to go after November 6th in order to ensure that his head is COMPLETELY covered by dirt?
Come on now, even Charles Manson had fans.
I bet the bride and groom were REAL happy that Flip interrupted their day. BTW, Flip's only comment was "I like matzo"
How much were they paid?
Did you talk to them about your new word "kibbutz" or did you remember "chutzpah" from that MN flake. You might want to try this one next time you want to pretend you know so much, karguer" and tell them you talking about yourself!
LMAO – What a staged performance!!!
Obama 2012 – The Only Trusted Way Forward!!
They obviously were rich and now famous.....like Mittens other "friends." Obama/Biden
The looneys of the state... Must be Crispie's supporters. I mean Christie's supporters.
The wedding party was likely afraid Bain Capitol would buy their employers and lay them off if they didn't suck up to Romney.
