Broward wedding viral video shows the horrible side of a wedding venue owner. The wedding ended abruptly when the venue owner started forcing the guests to leave. The owner, Rodriguez Albisu, waved and pointed a gun at the unwitting guests.
According to the police report, the venue was fully booked until 11:30 p.m., but the owner told the hosts to close the venue half an hour before the appointed time.
The incident happened just after 11 p.m. on March 2, 2023 at the Cielo Farms wedding venue in Southwest Ranches.
“Imagine you just got married, my best friend’s first act as a husband is to step in front of a gun in front of his wife,” said Edward Faria, the groom’s best man.
Several guests said they felt trapped inside the property.
The viral footage showed 58-year-old Rodriguez Albisu brandishing a revolver in the middle of the reception. He was heard shouting, ‘Go away! Out!’ in the video.
Albisu was accompanied by his 31-year-old son Christian Rafart. Rafart helped his father keep his word.
According to the DJ at the wedding, Rafart approached him first and told him that all guests had to leave about 30 minutes before the contract end time.
When the guests and the hosts did not succumb to the ridiculous demands of Rafart and his father, he started beating and forcing people to assert power.
Jonathan Campo, also known as DJ Rich Homie Jon, said he was running his cousin’s wedding when the outage started.
“I’m just staring down the barrel of the gun and trying to brace myself to get shot because I don’t know what your intention is, and why am I in this situation? said DJ Homie Jon.
Rafart was arrested on charges including battery, resisting arrest and violating his probation. His father, Rodriguez Albisu, was arrested on nine counts of aggravated assault, the arrest report said.
The lawyer representing Rodriguez-Albisu said what happened before the video was made will be crucial in taking the case to court.
Attorney Kenneth Padowitz said that when the evidence in this case comes out about what happened before the tape rolled, it will show that my client is, in fact, not guilty.
