It’s not every day you get to have a bear show up in your wedding photos.
Allison and Tabor Baumli said their ‘I Do’s’ at the Minnesota Zoo earlier this month and were snapping some photos near the animal cages when a bear stopped smack right in the middle of the frame, adorably photobombing the shoot of the biggest day of their lives.
In the photographs, Allison and Tabor are gazing lovingly into each other’s eyes while the Minnesota bear called Kenai – watches in ‘que horror’ of what seems to him a strange display of courtship. We can’t distinguish if Kenai has some past emotional baggage and just hates looking at couples in love or if he’s sad it’s not him who’s getting married to Allison.
The couple’s photographer couldn’t pass up the moment and quickly clicked the shutter. Kristy Clarke of Chris and Kristy Photography said Kenai took one look at the bride and his jaw literally dropped. [mashshare]
The photographer adds the bear looked like he was awestruck at her beauty and when his eyes trailed towards the groom, Kenai almost looked disappointed. [mashshare]
When they prompted Allison and Tabor to seal it with a kiss, the bear just looked completely heartbroken. Just look at that sad face. We can almost feel this photo.
The couple had an interesting choice to have a zoo as their wedding venue but it turned out to be one of the best decisions they’ve made together.
We honestly wish that one day the bear finds a she-bear who can look him in the eyes in the way Allison does to Tabor.
