(CNN) — It was the beginning to a beautiful wedding; Rob and Noelle were in the middle of their vows when suddenly the priest stopped to address a videographer behind him.

“Sir, would you please leave?”

“Where do you want me to be?”

“Anywhere other than here.”


But it didn’t end there.

“This is a solemn assembly. This is not a photography session. Please move or I will stop.”

“You want me to leave?”

“I will stop the ceremony if you do not get out of the way.”

The expressions on the couple’s faces say it all.

The photographers move and the ceremony continues.

Noelle’s brother posted the awkward moment online, and the newlyweds left on their honeymoon and woke up internet sensations — garnering over 250,000 views

CNN reached out to the priest and church for a statement regarding the video but did not get a response.
