This couple decided to get married at Minnesota Zoo and ended up with some truly spectacular wedding photos, including getting hilariously photobombed by a Russian grizzly bear.
The images, taken by Chris and Kristy Photography, have since gone viral as people can’t get enough of the bear’s outrageous facial expressions, it looks thoroughly unimpressed with the situation unfolding in front of it! “The pictures were the photographer’s idea,” the groom explained. “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 give us his ‘blessings’.”
“There are some less than amicable zoos’ in the world that are like prisons,” he explained. “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.”
