A wedding is one of the happiest days in a couple’s life. It’s the day you tie the knot and officially start your life together as a partnership. For one bride and groom, they decided to get married at a zoo and one of the zoo’s ‘guests’ managed to become the star of the wedding album.
The couple decided to get married at Minnesota Zoo and their unusual location choice definitely paid off when you see the photos from their special day.
A Russian grizzly bear managed to steal the show of a couple who got married at a zoo
The images were taken by Chris and Kristy Photography and they’ve now gone viral thanks to the hilarious and adorable facial expressions of the bear.
In the trio of photos, the bear looks incredibly unimpressed by what he’s witnessing. But the couple loved the results. The groom said the pictures were the photographer’s idea and they couldn’t be happier (even if the bear doesn’t look it).
So we got married at the Zoo and this bear had an interesting first look reaction.
They said it was very fortunate to get a picture with one of the local denizens; the animals typically go in for mealtime when we’re allowed to wander prior to the ceremony. This Russian grizzly bear was the only one kind enough to give us his ‘blessings’.
We think after seeing these results, more people may be interested in getting married at a zoo. And who can blame them? The photos are awesome!
The groom knows that some people aren’t fond of how a lot of zoos are run. So he made sure he did a lot of research for his location choice.
There are some less than amicable zoos’ in the world that are like prisons. But I’d like to think that our chosen venue, the MN Zoo, is not among them since it’s state-owned and not a Zoo for the sake of profit. If I’m not mistaken, they also perform many functions critical to wildlife rehabilitation and preserving species approaching extinction.
People on Bored Panda loved the photos and they had some very funny comments about what the pictures reminded them of.
A lot of people started humanizing the bear, saying what they thought he looked like.
People tried thinking what must be going through the bear’s head.
And of course, many complimented the photographer’s excellent skills.
But they’re not the only couple to get some awesome zoo/animal-based wedding/proposal photos. Have a look at the results below.
