SOUTH WINDSOR, Conn. – A Connecticut bride from hell wound up in a cell after flying into a rage at her reception, lobbing wedding cake at her new hubby, smashing flower vases and then trying to bite the cop who tried to cart her off, witnesses and police said.
"Everything seemed to go fine until 4 in the afternoon, when the bar was closed," recalled Helmar Wolf, co-owner of The Mill on the River (search) restaurant in South Windsor, where the posh Saturday reception was held for guests including Marines just back from Iraq.
Wolf said the sordid saga started when restaurant workers first noticed some members of the tipsy bridal party sneaking behind the closed bar to try and nab one more nip for the road.
They were warned to stop, and they did — briefly, he said.
"But after about three minutes, there was somebody else behind there grabbing a bottle of Grey Goose [a pricey vodka]," he told The Post last night.
The pickled pack was chased away again. That's when an irate bridesmaid confronted the staff and griped that they should be allowed to continue drinking, Wolf said.
She then tried to get behind the bar again — even gloatingly making an obscene gesture to the security camera above it, he said.
But what happened next "could have been on 'Jerry Springer,'" Wolf said.
Wolf said he heard screaming outside his window and looked out to see enraged bride Adrienne T. Samen, 18, of North Haven, spewing obscenities at her "very nice" new husband, a Marine cadet.
"She started taking out the wedding cake [from the car] and smashing it on the ground. She took all the vases out and threw them against the building. There was glass all over the parking lot," he said.
"Then she dove on top of the car, landing on the hood. She fell to the ground."
That was when things "got a little bit out of hand," Wolf said.
An enraged Samen furiously began walking away down the road — with her wedding dress over her head, he said.
Wolf said that's when he called the cops.
But Samen wasn't ready to go without a fight, police said.
Swearing as they cuffed her and got her into a cruiser, the feisty teen then tried to bite the arm of one officer and kicked the car's door and window, they said.
Samen was eventually charged with disorderly conduct and breach of peace.
"[The police] provided her with a bridal suite for the evening — at the town jail," Wolf quipped.
The belligerent bride was released later that night after posting $1,000 bond, cops said.
Samen was reportedly already on her honeymoon with her new hubby Monday. She is due in Manchester Superior Court (search) on Aug. 28.
