Tom Hanks proved he’s the nicest guy in Hollywood when he responded to a Nashville couple’s wedding invitation this week!

Kristen Jerkins and Joe Dobrin went out on a limb when they were addressing their invitations for their upcoming “I do’s” and decided to send an invite to the actor along with a note asking and hoping he would at least RSVP.

According to WSMV, Hanks responded with a photo of himself holding the invite and a letter explaining that he has another commitment at the time of their wedding.

“Here is a picture taken of me while I ponder if there is some way I can make it to your wedding,” the letter read. “Dang it, but I am in rehearsals for a play here in Los Angeles starting in May. Rats. Gotta send regrets. BUT, if you are in Santa Monica or Los Angeles in June, I will invite you to come see the production (from Shakespeare) of the Flstaff [sic] stories. Let me know if you can be my guests.”

Hanks signed off with, “and, congratulations you kooky kids.”

The bride-to-be shared photos of Hanks with their invitation and his note on Facebook, writing, “Soooo, those of you that know me really well, know that Tom Hanks is near the top of the list as my favorite human in the world. So I sent him a wedding invitation and a short note with it to see if there was some way to get him to our big day… AND THIS HAPPENED! Don’t mind me, I’m currently over here LOSING IT!”

The couple are set to wed on May 5.
