It happened yesterday at the International Cryptozoology Museum. A newly married couple traveled great distances to journey to Portland, Maine, to take a quiet moment to renew their vows. Rob and Amy Sole of Ohio wanted to do this in front of the museum’s Bigfoot, imagining he was their special minister performing the ceremony for them again.
They gave permission for the ICM to share their “wedding picture” here:
The museum is available for wedding receptions, if you wish to plan far enough ahead. Of course, we are not interested in shotgun weddings, for obvious reasons, as we are true to the “no kill” policy. Multi-gendered, group-gendered, same-gendered, and opposite-gendered receptions are welcome, needless to say.
If you are serious about wishing to have a reception of any kind at the museum, contact director Loren Coleman, privately, by filling out the form here.
This couple’s love found Bigfoot. You can too.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
