Every couple dreams of having a memorable wedding day. Friends, family, flowers, food, and fine apparel are the typical trappings. Some couples choose to put their own unique spin on their wedding day. Alexis and Steve Epsey, for example, wanted to swim with dolphins and be married in front of a dolphin tank.
Special Guest Steals the Show
The Epseys traveled to Marine Land Dolphin Adventure in St. Augustine, Fla. to swim with the dolphins and tie the knot earlier this year. Among the most cherished tangible mementos of any wedding day are wedding photos, and plenty of them. Many couples have albums full of fun snaps they envision sharing with their children, grand-children, and great-grandchildren. The Epseys have one particular wedding photo that has gone viral on the Internet – for very good reason.
As per Florida wedding tradition, the beaming bride and debonair groom posed for photos with a tropical backdrop. As they posed for their first sweet kiss as husband and wife, they had no idea that the ensuing photo would be so memorable – thanks to a fortuitous and totally spontaneous photo bomb. Many couples plan destination weddings that involve a swim with dolphins in the Bahamas. However, few end up with photos like the Epseys.
