SAUGATUCK, Mich. — A wild deer leaned into a wedding photo of a Michigan couple, making a memento of their big day all the more memorable.

The Detroit News reported that the friendly deer seemed drawn by Morgan Mackley's bouquet of flowers, walked up and began chomping on the roses.

The couple had just walked to the edge of a field with their wedding photographer during their reception last week in Holland in western Michigan.

The photographer, Laurenda Bennett, called it a "special moment" for the newly wed Morgan and her husband of just a few hours, Luke Mackley, when the deer approached.

The couple surrendered the bouquet to the deer. And when they returned later, they saw the deer had eaten all but one of the roses.
