If you've ever dreamed of having a couple of adorable animals at your wedding, look no further than Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas. Though the Portland-based non-profit predominantly trains llamas and alpacas as service animals, it now also offers them as fun and furry wedding guests!
Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas has 4 cuddly creatures available for hire: llamas Rojo and Smokey, and alpacas Napoleon and Jean-Pierre. Brides and grooms-to-be can opt to invite any or all of the animals to their big day, where they will happily pose for photographs, interact with guests, and even dress up in bow ties, veils, and other formalwear. As each llama and alpaca is a certified therapy companion, they will be on their best behavior throughout the festivities. “Our animals are ‘pros’ when it comes to parties and special events,” the Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas website states. “Always decorated to compliment, 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, and smiles that will last forever!”
Of course, as the health and well-being of the animals are always a priority, the services offered by Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas do have their limits. The adorable invitees can only attend weddings in Portland, Oregon, or Vancouver, Washington. Additionally, to avoid any unnecessary stress on the animals, they can't travel during rush hour or partake in celebrations where there is a possibility of extreme heat or cold.
If your wedding plans satisfy these criteria (lucky you!), you can go ahead and book your lovely llama wedding here. As an added bonus, all special events' proceeds fund the non-profit's Therapy and Education Program. This means that your adorable and memorable wedding will also benefit an amazing cause! Who could ask for more on their big day?
Mtn Peaks Therapy Llamas & Alpacas, an Oregon-based non-profit, offers an amazing service: you can hire llamas and alpacas as wooly wedding guests.
In addition to being well-trained attendees, the animals are also a picture-perfect addition to traditional wedding photos.
