Weddings are always
talked about as the most important day in one’s life, and they’re
also known for being notoriously difficult to plan. There are just so
many things to be taken into consideration. The location, the venue,
the theme of the wedding, how many people to invite, seating
arrangements (so that people get along), the music (do you get a band
or a string quartet), the catering (do you get restaurant catering
and waiters or funky food trucks), decorations, floral arrangements,
photographers and videographers – all these things take immense
amounts of planning. And don’t even get me started on the dress.
Finding “the one” can be more difficult than finding the man you
want to marry. But certain things you just can’t plan, there are
always surprises on the way and some of them are really amazing.
We bet Megan and
Luke had no idea that the florist they hired to make the wedding
bouquet will accidentally create the yummiest treat for one special
little deer. But as life’s always like that – it just throws
surprises at you. However, you’ve got to agree, as far as
unpredictable circumstances go – this one was pretty cool.
Megan and Luke were
just planning to have a normal woodland photo shoot in the field.
They went to their wedding location later in the day, after dinner,
and were hoping to get a lovely golden hour photoshoot against the
gorgeous backdrop of nature, when they encountered an uninvited but
not unwelcome adorable little wedding crasher.
The deer in question
was just grazing on some grass near a fence and noticed the couple as
soon as they came into the view. You’d think the furry guy would at
least compliment the dress Megan was wearing but he clearly forgot
all about manners and went straight for the bouquet. What an animal,
am I right?
Megan and Luke,
however, didn’t despair, they took the challenge in stride and
turned it into an opportunity. They let the deer munch on the
bouquet, moving it around, holding it up so the deer would jump,
while their photographer was snapping away as many pictures as
possible to capture this incredible moment.
In the end, the deer
won with the score of deer 1: 0 wedding bouquet. They left it to
enjoy the flowery dinner and when they came back a bit later the deer
was nowhere to be seen and all that was left from the bouquet was a
single rose. Just like on the Bachelor.
And while the evening turned out to be a little overcast and they didn’t have the pleasure of that incredible golden hour lighting – they got something much better. A unique unplanned and glorious photoshoot with a deer that many couples would pay through the nose for.
