Sheriff Invites Guests To His Wedding In Criminally Funny Way

"Their invitation nearly gave everyone a heart attack."

A sheriff invited guests to his wedding in the best way he knew how.

Rather than send out a traditional invite, the law enforcer and his bride -to-be issued their friends and family with a highly realistic spoof summons:

At first glance, the fake “Notice to Appear” bears a striking resemblance to a citation. But on closer inspection, it’s clear that it’s actually an invite to the nuptials of two people identified as Matt and Nancy on May 26.

Reddit user Exsupervillain shared two photographs of the invite online Thursday, and the images are now going viral. “My aunt is marrying a sheriff,” the Redditor wrote. “Their invitation nearly gave everyone a heart attack.”

Not much else is known about the invitation, its legitimacy or the couple named in the post. The Huffington Post has reached out for further information.

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this article stated that the nuptials were due to be held on April 14.
