But he had already taken off, literally jumping a fence to get the heck out of there, and hopping in his pickup truck and driving away.
The runaway boyfriend, Nathan Jordan, told Inside Edition it's not his girlfriend's first time catching the bouquet.
"[I thought,] 'I'm taking off this time,'" he said.
Girlfriend Haley Skipworth said she didn't read too much into it.
"It was all a joke, it was just for fun, he's always doing crazy things like that," she told Inside Edition.
Jordan looks forward to marrying Skipworth one day, he clarified, just "not yet."
