Remember Barney Stinson from 'How I Met Your Mother'? He wanted to have a 'ring bear' instead of ring bearer for his wedding with Robin Scherbatsky. Though his plan didn't have a great ending, but this Russian couple had their own 'ring bear'.

 

The couple - Denis and Nelya - brought a 300-pound grizzly bear to their wedding to play the role of the ring bearer.  The 7-feet-tall bear named Stepan even posed with the couple for pictures.

 

Daily Mail quoted the couple as saying that though the bear was very friendly they were a little scared at the beginning, but was still happy that they could have Stepan as their special guest.

According to the report, Stepan who lost his mother was discovered by hunters when he was 3 months old. He was later adopted by a couple and is now 23-years-old.

The pictures were taken by Russian photographer Olga Barantseva.

 

Grizzly bears are unpredictable animals and are considered more aggressive compared to black bears. But according to his handlers, Stepan is very calm and friendly. He even likes to cuddle up with them on the sofa at night while watching TV.
