BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

A photo that has been shared nearly 4,000 times in about four days can be called viral. That is what happened with a photo taken by a photographer in Louisiana.

The day before Katie Young and James Lowder were to be married, the photographer Quinn Miller decided to have a dinosaur attack the wedding party. A T-Rex running the wedding party out of the reception is do-able.... right?

The bride and groom were on board and with some good sports in the wedding party and some Photoshop magic, the image that Quinn Miller created will be one the new family and their friends will be able to enjoy for many years to come.

Quinn Miller is a senior at LSU, majoring in Digital Art. He posted the image to his photography Facebook page on Monday, and the shares on that page alone are nearing the 4,000 mark.

The bride, Katie Young of St. Francisville, LA, just graduated from LSU with her masters in teaching. She has accepted a teaching job in Metairie.

The groom, James Lowder of Shreveport, LA, just received his undergrad in Biology from LSU. He will go to dental school in the fall in New Orleans.

In one photo Miller shared, the groom is wearing part of the Mike the Tiger mascot costume. Miller said "It is tradition to keep it a secret while you are a mascot, but then team members wear parts of the costumes when they graduate."

The couple is now on their honeymoon.

The wedding took place in St. Francisville, LA at The Myrtles Plantation on May 26.

Miller shared more photos of the couple... without the T-Rex. Congratulations to the couple and a big Thank you to Quinn Miller for sharing the pictures and the story.
