A couple from Illinois visited Rocky Mountain National Park this week to get married and were startled when a moose came into view in their snowy May background.

The couple made several attempts to take pictures and say their vows, but the stubborn guest continued to meander closer and closer.

The couple said that they had never seen a moose before, and their photographer noted that the couple was terrified; she kept trying to get them to pay attention to their pictures, but they were in awe of the wildlife.

The surprise guest and late spring snowstorm led to some stunning wedding pictures for the happy couple.
