Florida Couple Tries To Hold 'Dream' Wedding At Mansion Without Owner's Permission Because It's 'God's Message'

People doing bizarre things in the name of God is nothing new to modern society, but it truly never gets old.

A Florida couple invited family and friends to their weddingβ€”which they called "God's message"β€”at a mansion they called their "dream home and estate" with just one major issue.

The couple did not own the mansion, nor did they have permission to use it for their festivities.

The mansion, located in Ft. Lauderdale, measured approximately 16,300 square feet and had a bowling alley, a swimming pool with a waterfall, a jacuzzi, some tennis courts, a poolside barβ€”the works. Anybody would want to get married there.

The couple, who assumed the house was vacant and lied to guests about it being their home, were confronted on the day of the wedding by the owner, who was very confused and called emergency services.



When Wilson showed up to set up the wedding the day of, the mansion's owner, Nathan Finkel, immediately contacted police before confronting the happy couple.

Finkel told the 911 dispatcher there were people trespassing on his property.

"And they keep harassing me, calling me. They say they're having a wedding here and it's God's message. I don't know what's going on. All I want is (for) it to stop. And they're sitting at my property right at the front gate right now."





Wilson, posing as a potential buyer for the mansion which has been listed for the past two years, toured the property and incorrectly assumed the entirety of it was vacant.

When confronted by police, he immediately left, saying "I don't want to talk about it," when asked what he was thinking by a local newspaper.





While nobody likes to have the day of their dream wedding spoiled, best be sure you actually have permission to have it where you're trying to have it.

Otherwise you might be very disappointed.
