As the photos were being taken the raccoons seemed very relaxed and not the least bit nervous of the wedding couple.

The couple moved away from the path to give the racoons clearance

It doesn’t seem that the raccoons had any particular place to be as they continued to follow the bride and groom.

In fact, the whole affair was considered by all to be a “good omen”.

There are some raccoons that have received an invitation to a wedding and have accepted whole heartedly.

Being Realistic About Raccoons


In instances like this where raccoons and people can come together it still has to be remembered that raccoons are wild animals. Although it is true that many people do keep some as pets. Keeping your distance from those in the wild is always a wise thing to do. Especially if Mom has her babies with her.

They can be quite destructive, unpredictable and often like to travel in families.

Animal Wedding Crashers

Raccoons are not the only animal that has been known to infiltrate different parts of a wedding. There are several different animals that have been caught in the act. Both wild and domestic. Some prefer the photo shoots while others like the receptions.

Jethro who is one big dog was intended to be part of the wedding party. Naturally he had to be dressed for the part. Which he was in a tux. However, during the photo shoot he had enough of the get up and was intent on getting it off.

It is a wonderful experience for the bride and groom to arrive in horse and carriage….sometimes!

Obviously the horses delivering this happy couple were not so happy themselves and gave them quite a ride.

Whether cute, scary or unexpected, animals at a wedding can be a crowd pleaser.
