According to the photographer, Chappelle, who lives in the area, was “so nice and truly made our day.”
Brammer told Yahoo the comedian initially declined taking a photo with the couple until he started chatting with Saunders about the future groom’s military service.
“I followed in my dad’s footsteps; he’s a 26-year Air Force veteran; he retired in 2005,” said Saunders who has been in the Air Force since 2010.
Chappelle then announced he would photobomb the couple, an act that made even him laugh.
“After that we were all pretty much shocked and couldn’t believe what just happened,” Brammer said. “We reviewed the photos, and I walked over to show Dave. He laughed and said, ‘We’re gonna go viral, man.’ “
Chappelle was right.
