You Can Now Hire Adorable, Well-Dressed Llamas For Your Wedding

April 27, 2017

It's official: all weddings scheduled for 2017 must be moved to Portland (Oregon) or Vancouver (British Columbia).

An animal therapy center, which is called Mtn. Peaks Therapy Llamas and Alpacas, is offering a service that allows couples to rent a llama for their wedding. Yes, this is a real thing. 

Typical. Portland. Wedding. #marriedinoregon #oregonwedding #portlandbride #CastawayPortland #brideandgroom #smokeythellama #napoleonthealpaca #huffpostido

The organization is actually a non-profit, but they say that their llamas are pros at socializing during a special event.

The llamas are named Rojo, Smokey, Diego, and Jean-Pierre. In fact, we suspect that Rojo or Jean-Pierre would be a much better guest than your creepy Uncle Ron or that weird girl from the accounting department who works with your fiancé.

So excited to share with you all photos from our Peruvian-themed bridal shoot! .

There is a charge to have llama appearance at your wedding. However, all of the proceeds go to the organization's educational and therapy programs.

@kimsmithmillerphotography does an amazing job at capturing the joy of the moment ---- #portlandbride #oregonwedding #rojoandnapoleon #CastawayPortland #brideandgroom #fancyllamas #weddingdayllama #stunning #oregonbride

Unfortunately, if you do book a llama there is a chance they may not be able to make it to your special day. The organization says that they work hard to avoid causing any unnecessary stress to the animals. So the llamas may not be able to travel to your wedding if the weather or traffic is bad. 

Only in Portland can you get these fancy animals to attend the biggest day of your life. Your guests will thank you for it. #fancyllamas #rojoandnapoleon #brideandgroom #oregonwedding #keepportlandweird #smilestation
