MOSCOW — A Russian couple went a little wild with their wedding photos.

The couple brought in a 300-pound grizzly bear to pose with them on their big day, the Daily Mail reported.

According to the Daily Mail, the bear, named Stepan, weighs about 296 pounds and stands more than 7 feet tall.

He sported a black bow tie for the special occasion.

The couple, identified only as Denis and Nelya, told the Daily Mail they were “a bit scared” but called having Stepan at the wedding a “dream come true.”

The wedding photos were taken by Russian photographer Olga Barantseva.

According to the Daily Mail, Stepan lost his mother and was discovered by hunters when he was 3 months old. He was adopted by Svetlana and Yuriy Panteleenko and is now 23.

The newspaper quoted Stepan’s adoptive parents as saying he “absolutely loves people and is a really sociable bear.”

A video shows the bear cuddling with the Panteleenkos on the couch, joining them for tea and enjoying story time on Yuriy’s lap.
