This is going to sound like an episode of Portlandia, in a completely non-annoying way: An animal-therapy center in Brush Prairie, WA, is offering couples the chance to invite llamas to their wedding receptions.
Brides magazine reports that the faith-based nonprofit Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas has llamas and alpacas ready to dress up and party with you. Or, you know, just hang out and be adorable. All of the proceeds go to the organization's therapy and education program.
"Always decorated to complement, our llamas can easily handle all ages, and any size of crowd. More than just entertainment, we provide a unique interactive experience for your guests that most have never experienced before," according to the website. The organization serves couples in the Portland, OR, and Vancouver, WA (not to be confused with Canada's Vancouver), area.

We could seriously scroll through the @weddingllamas Instagram all day. Take a look at some of the wedding photos so far:

The wedding llamas have received tons of positive responses so far.
"The super-friendly ruminants arrived dressed as a bride and groom and posed for photos with everyone," Andrea Damewood, the food critic for the Portland Mercury newspaper, wrote in an essay about her own 2015 wedding. "It cut down on a mob at the food carts, made for really good Facebook posts, and got awkward aunts conversing with coworkers we had 10 years ago. At $300 for 1.5 hours, it beat the hell out of more 'mustache in a photo booth' wedding pics."
We'll be surprised if we don't see a wedding-llama episode when Portlandia comes back in 2018. Get on it, Fred and Carrie.
