    The background isn’t fake. I know where this is, and the rocks make them look higher up than they actually are. The bride and groom would have had to do very little walking and no climbing to get that picture.

  2. mary says:

    How lucky they were to come upon a wild velvet oak chair to enhance the natural setting.

  3. Karisha says:

    The photographer could’ve shown the ring off by them posing different instead of putting a chair up there, its a beautiful picture, but they’re going to be angry about it later when they realize how dumb this is.

  4. dave says:

    What appears to be a chair may actually be a very unusually shaped rock formation covered in red moss.

  5. kysa says:

    They met at a resturant he gave her his chair and that was what started a steamy love affair.

  6. TVannie says:

    When she married, he said it would last forever. But then she tried to reupholster him, and he just couldn’t change. Eventually she was forced to put him on EBay, and he went to the highest bidder. She was left with 4 little dents in the carpet and this picture to remember him by. I wonder who the guy is?

  7. Sidekick says:

    Hmmm…who was on the chair a few seconds ago?

  8. Missy says:

    “Yeah, this would be so much more colorful if we had a splash of red in the picture. Anyone have a glass of red wine, or a red rose?”

    “How about a chair?”

    “Um, yeah, okay, sure a chair would look perfectly natural in the mountains. Good thinking.”

  9. Alan says:

    Signing the marriage register,the pastor said “Come in,take a chair”……AND HE DID !!

  10. cat says:

    Well, obviously it’s one of the many compromises they made for their special day. He wanted an outdoorsie, mountainman theme and she wanted a sophisticated, red velvet affair!!!

  11. Jann says:

    They are the last ones left in a rousing game of musical chairs. Wonder who won?

  12. dan says:

    Or maybe they were just huge fans of Depeche Mode

  13. cheryl says:

    It would be a really pretty picture WITHOUT THE CHAIR! How weird.

    • Tiffani says:

      It reminds me of those really weird pottery barn staged photos where they have his ultra pretty bed, with quilted sheets, etc….and they have it set in an old barn. Like that’s really what would happen. Reality Check.

  14. Kristina says:

    “Because having Grandma here in spirit wasn’t enough for us.”

  15. steve z says:

    The more awkward reality of this picture is that the photographer probably sets every couple that come in to get studio portraits done in this “scene” and there are hundreds of this pic with different people

  16. Tiffani says:

    This looks like a branch off from those contest reality shows:

    Survivor: Marriage

    “One Bride. One Groom. One Overstuffed Red Velvet Chair. Three will enter the desert, only one will survive. “

  17. carol says:

    With this chair I do thee wed.

  18. carol says:

    I do thee, and thy chair, wed.

  19. Ruth says:

    Who will win this last round of Musical Chairs? The suspense is killing me!

  20. Uncuw Biww says:

    the chair is not my son…

  21. Jaime says:

    This is in Utah, and it’s not photoshopped. I bet they were taking pictures with the bride seated before this awkward picture was taken.

    • Kazz says:

      Yeah, agreed. I live in Western Colorado and this is sort of your garden variety wedding, senior portrait or family photo background in our region of the country. Well..minus the red chair.

      • CarrieM says:

        I live in Idaho, and ditto. My wedding photo was very similar, taken outdoors in a mountain setting. I chose a blue vinyl lawn chair for mine though. (kidding about the chair part, of course)

        • another spud says:

          What? you didn’t use one of those mass-produced 2-fer-$10 white Wally World chairs? That would have been a perfect accent to the Little City of Rocks…

  22. SCM says:

    “It all started with a chair.”

  23. Cee says:

    I’m wondering if they used the chair in a different shot (one of them sitting down),and just happened to use it in this shot too? (darnnit, we carried this chair up here, we’re going to use it!) ugly chair though.

  24. kell says:

    i keep expecting the M*A*S*H chopper to fly in over the hills…….all together now *Suicide is painless…it brings on many changes…….. *

  25. Lady Di says:

    If they’re on the edge of the cliff, where the heck is the photographer standing?

  26. M says:

    The natural wedding backgrounds are so lovely.

  27. Stephanie says:

    This also looks photo shopped.

  28. Harry says:

    This is way beyond awkward. This is just plain silly.

  29. Criss says:

    Photographer: “Great choice for the backdrop. Now, would you like to use one of our many props?”

  30. Carolyn says:

    Oh wait, ‘climb every mountain, ford every stream, always carry a red velvet chair, incase you have to lean’

  31. AJ says:

    Am I the only person who thinks that background looks fake? However, the dirt on his shoes makes me wonder if it is. What’s the chair supposed to symbolize anyway? My husband says it’s there to cover the stain on his pants. Ha ha. (I hope not.)

    • steve z says:

      It’s a photo done in a Portrait Studio. The background is a “drop” and the cliff is hollow resin mold

      • Dustin says:

        Ok so, yes the background is real people… I am the one in the photo. Haha its her grandmas chair, and was meant to be a funny picture…. Its all real though, and it was absolutely gorgeous out there, and I have no idea how this photo was found and uploaded. But whatever its cool….and funny.

    • Jon says:

      I thought the same thing about the stain (either on his pants or a big ink one on her dress). They could have had the ring bearer or an usher walking around the ceremony with the chair blocking the blotch from view.

  32. cincha says:

    The background looks fake–but the chair is just strange, strange, strange…

    Maybe they are religious, and the chair is for Jesus, who is invited to be one with them in the marriage.

  33. Carolyn says:

    No no, Ive been to that mountain top, funnily enough there is a red velvet chair there.

  34. Dez says:

    The background is cool… but the chair is just stupid!

  35. Heather says:

    Her dress is GORGEOUS!!!

  36. Babygirl says:

    This is nuts….and He coulda cleaned up his shoes…It is his wedding photos…UGH

  37. Jenn says:

    Maybe it’s for an imaginary family member……

  38. Richard says:

    “With this chair I bewed…”

  39. JerseyPam says:

    We don’t need a stylish marriage, we can’t afford a carriage,
    But you’ll look sweet upon the seat of a red velvet chair for two!

  40. luckybug says:

    I’d loved to have watched them drag that chair up the mountain with them.

    • Xanadu West says:

      Climbing up the mountain??? Come on, folks: fake rocks, fake background… look closely.

      • D Nice says:

        Thanks for the buzz-kill Xanadu :(…..I was just picturing myself up on top of that cascading mountain with the wind blowing through my hair…sharing that special moment with lovely couple…but not now….you ruined it for me and the newlyweds !!! I hope you can sleep tonight, knowing that you squashed all of our hopes and dreams of a happy life together…geez 🙂

      • Dustin says:

        Not fake, i promise….thats me in the picture

      • TKW says:

        I actually know them, and where the picture was taken…. it’s all real

  41. NYCMike says:

    …to love and to chair-ish, until death us do part….

  42. JANIE says:

    Be our guest, be our guest!

  43. jenny says:

    this confuses me!

  44. marilee says:

    And the red chair symbolized……? Or was it just used to climb up onto that cliff!

  45. Jenny says:

    That rock at the edge of that gorge could really use a velvety chair.

  46. Freckles says:

    They appear to be on a cliff. My guess is that is where the mother-in-law was seated, posing, before the unfortunate accident.
