A wedding is one of the most memorable events in a couple’s life, and selecting the guests is crucial. However, even meticulous planning can’t predict if a non-human guest might steal the show. Recently, at an upstate New York wedding, a llama named J dressed in a unique tuxedo stole the show and looked like a dapper groomsman.
A llama known as J recently joined a wedding in upstate New York, and its uniquely designed tuxedo made him look less like a cute animal and more like a dapper groomsman.
J is managed by Llama Adventures, a farm that brings joy to everyone through llamas. What better way to bring joy than with a cute creature dressed as a party guest? J’s costume features a pair of elegantly crossed hands and neatly ironed pants, making it look like he is standing on two feet and posing for photos, getting smooches from the bridesmaids, and chatting with fellow groomsmen, all while standing like a hybrid human-llama.

When looked at from the perfect angle, the llama’s rear becomes hidden, creating the illusion that he is calmly posing for photos…
…getting smooches from the bridesmaids…

Being part of Tara and Adam’s wedding as something closer to a best man than a curious critter was truly especial for both his handlers and the guests.
“It was the bride’s mother who contacted us about bring a llama to the wedding. It was a surprise for the bride. Apparently it is her life dream to own a llama farm.”
As his calm demeanor shows, this is not J’s first rodeo. He regularly attends birthday parties, nursing homes, school events, and other special occasions.

As the pictures show, the bride seems thrilled to share her special day with the llama, not only cheekily posing for family pictures, but even having it stand as part of the groomsmen during the ceremony.
“J takes it all in stride and enjoys the attention,” his handlers confirm. “It’s always fun to take J (and/or other llamas) to events. In most cases it’s people’s first up close and personal experience with llamas.”
