When Tim and Beth Alberts planned to get hitched on May 19, they probably didn't expect hundreds of protesters to join in on the festivities.

But that's exactly what happened when the newly wed couple exited the church on the eve of Chicago's NATO Summit, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.

Leaving no time for confetti and celebrations, occupy protesters filled downtown Chicago's streets interrupting the bride and groom's photos.

But not every couple was brave enough to tie the knot this weekend. According to Reuters, Debbie and George Sevilis planned to get married on Saturday, May 19, but rescheduled their big day a month earlier after they heard about the historic NATO summit in Chicago.

This weekend sixty heads of state, 2,500 journalists and thousands of protesters have arrived in Chicago for the two day Nato meeting beginning Sunday, explains CBS News.
