Tim and Beth Alberts could not have picked a worse weekend to get married in Chicago. This weekend, thousands of Occupy Wall Street protesters hit downtown to protest the NATO summit.

On Saturday, the Alberts walked out of their church and were accidentally caught in the middle of the protestors.

A video (below) shows the bride telling her wedding party: "Let's get out of here."

Protesters began at Grant Park and marched down to the convention center at McCormick Place, reports the Daily Mail.

The Reverend Jesse Jackson, who is taking part in the protests, told the crowd: "We learned from Dr. King in Birmingham. We march in a disciplined, non-violent way. We cannot afford to have our message hijacked by acts of provocation."
