Groom Busted Before He Can Say 'I Do'

Groom Busted Before He Can Say 'I Do'

Friday, 27 April 2018 01:07 PM EDT

A judge set to wed two high school sweethearts instead called immigration to have the groom arrested.

It supposed to be a day of joy for Alexander Parker, 22, and Krisha Schmick, 23, as they prepared to tie the knot before Judge Elizabeth Beckley at the Camp Hill courthouse in Pennsylvania.

But when Parker, who was adopted from Guatemala by an Irish American family when he eight months old -- forgot his paperwork and was also in the process of renewing his green card.

That raised red flags for Beckley who called U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and had the groom taken into custody.

"We talked back in high school about getting married and finally we were going to do it. We were all dressed up and everything," Krisha told Newsweek.

Added Alexander: "[The] next thing I know a constable is coming out and telling me he needs to detain me because I.D. didn't look real. I tried to tell them it wasn't fake and that it was issued from the Guatemalan Consulate but they wouldn't believe me."

He was detained and fingerprinted. ICE agents eventually verified Alexander was legit and Beckley apologized, offering to carry the nuptial, according to Newsweek. The couple agreed, but only because Alexander's aunts had traveled to see them wed.
