It’s a lot easier to crash a wedding if you’re Shaquille O’Neal than it is if you’re Owen Wilson or Vince Vaughn. You don’t need to claim to be the CEO of a Vermont maple-syrup conglomerate, or a traveling family band, you just walk through the banquet door at the Four Seasons Hotel in Boston, and you’re immediately accepted.

On Friday, Aug. 27, that’s just what happened as Shaq wandered into the wedding ceremony of Kristen and Wes Schifone at the Four Seasons in downtown Boston, much to the delight of the newly-weds. Shaq didn’t show off his epic moves on the dance floor, nor did he spit out some serious rhymes with the band, but it was a memorable visit to say the least.
“Considering it was someone of his stature, he was a total gentleman and just acted like one of the guys,” the groom said from his Hawaiian honeymoon. “He accepted everyone’s photo request and even remembered our names the next day and asked that we come down for a photo shoot with him for the [Boston] Globe.”
Shaq: “We lost a lot of good men out there.”
Bridesmaid: “Playing for the Celtics?
Shaq: “Yes, with the Celtics you lose good men to trades and unruly fans. Look I don’t want to talk about it. I’m sorry.”
