A furry wedding crasher stole the show at a Tennessee couple’s nuptials by making its way down the aisle.

Edmondson said the photobomber made an entrance after the ceremony as she was taking intimate shots of the Brewers. The group relocated after they spotted the bear, not wanting to disturb it.
The animal was apparently displeased with being excluded from the photos and decided to take a walk down the aisle – a sight the photographer couldn’t ‘bear’ to miss.
‘Being scared didn’t cross my mind, I just wanted “the shot”,’ Edmondson told PetaPixel.
‘However, when I stood up, he made a “huffing” sound and started toward me.
‘At this point, I am beyond scared. He jacked my heart rate up to Jesus.’
Thankfully, Edmondson said, the bear decided to move along without causing any further drama.
The photographer said the shoot was easily one of her most memorable.
‘It was probably the most adventurous photo session I have done – even more than the one time I shot a family and their pet opossum,’ she quipped.
