In a strange turn of events, a pre-wedding ceremony photoshoot saw the attendance of uninvited guests- not of the usual kind. A couple's photoshoot was photobombed by a group of raccoons, perhaps wanting to wish the couple a happy married life. On September 14, prior to the wedding ceremony in the Tulip Garden at San Francisco's Golden Gate Park, the bride and groom ZachLevenberg and Sarah Schaaf, decided to whisk off and take "first look" photographs. The photographer, Kathryn White, was all ready to capture the groom's look when he would see his wife-to-be for the first time; when the raccoons decided that they want theirs to be captured as well. A group of raccoons emerged from behind the forest and photobombed the pictures. The entire scenario looks like it came right from a fairytale book.

'Curious' lot

As soon as the raccoons came, the photographer got taken aback. She had known raccoons to be vicious creatures and thus advised the couple to leave the area instantly. As soon as the trio started walking away from the scene, the raccoons started following them. The photographer then realised that they were a curious and friendly lot. The raccoons probably came out to take a look at all the commotion being caused in the usually peaceful, human-free zone. Soon enough, they went on their way, leaving the bride and groom with the most unbelievable wedding memories. 

Dogs, cats and other pet animals are usually a part of wedding ceremonies and the internet is full of such adorable pictures. However, having a group of raccoons at the venue is one of the most unique occurrences. The couple definitely had a wild start to their married life.
