You've Got to See This "Deerly Beloved" Wedding Photo

Wedding Photography

From Jeff Goldbum's Jurassic Park recreation and Tom Hardy as Bane in the background of one couple's portraits to Zach Braff's extra cheesy smile behind kissing newlyweds as he crossed a street in NYC, there's no shortage of amazing wedding photobombs. But we have yet to see a large group of deer — we're talking around 10 — emerge from the depth of a wooded area at the right moment to set a romantic, enchanted scene for one very lucky couple.

At the Stockton, NJ wedding of Erick and Lauren Fix this past Saturday, though, that was exactly the case. It's clear to see from the photo, above, that this is one special shot. It feels like it came straight from a movie or fairytale. And all because the couple's wedding photographer, Ian Christmann, knew just exactly how to seize the moment.

"During dinner, during sunset, this whole herd of deer came up out of the woods," Christmann told ABC News. "I convinced the bride and groom in the middle of dinner to come with me."

The groom explained that they held the wedding on a family friend's farm, which happens to host about 40 wild deer. During their reception's dinner, all of the deer emerged from the woods to celebrate with them (well, probably to eat their dinner too).

"The reason we hired Ian is because we're both artists and we wanted someone who really created artistic photos and not just documented the day," the groom Eric told ABC News from his mini-moon in Martha's Vineyard.

"We think they're great," he said of the photos, aptly titled "Deerly Beloved" by Christmann.
