Aunt Linda was excited.

Brides Kayleigh and Kirsten Jennings had a couple of very special (albeit, uninvited) guests at their wedding over the weekend.

Kristen Stewart and her girlfriend, supermodel Stella Maxwell, crashed the Jennings' Winnipeg reception, which took place Saturday evening at Pizzeria Gusto following the brides' backyard ceremony. Stewart has been in the city filming JT Leroy, and apparently became friendly with the pizzeria's management after they helped out at an event, according to CBC News. On Saturday evening she phoned the owner, asking if she and Maxwell could drop by.

"The owner came up to me, and he said, 'Hey, is it OK if Kristen Stewart and her girlfriend Stella [Maxwell] come and have a few drinks with you guys?'" Kirsten told the trade. She replied, "'Yeah, totally! Yeah, no problem. Um, who is that?'" (Apparently, not everyone is a Twilight fan.)

Stewart and Maxwell arrived around 10:30 p.m. and congratulated the newlyweds. "We got to be formally introduced before they came in and partied with us," Kayleigh said. "We got a chance to shake her hand and shake Stella's hand. I actually wasn't as star-struck as I thought I would be."

One person who was star-struck? Kirsten's Aunt Linda. "My Aunt Linda was extremely excited," she noted.

Kirsten and Kayleigh met in 2010 while bartending in the Cayman Islands, and moved to Winnipeg to get degrees. They have plans to move to Austin soon. No word on whether Stewart plans to follow them there.
