A hoot and a holler are needed for this unconventional couple who substituted a niece, nephew or distant cousin for an owl ring bearer! As a surprise to his wife, YouTuber Shaun Palmer hired Bilbo the owl to fly their commitment jewelry down the aisle with the help of his master on their special day. As their friends and family watched in awe, the stunt flew off without a hitch.

While it's not unusual for a couple's dog or cat to do the esteemed honors, this Harry Potter-inspired choice feels all too fantastical.

An inspired twist on the traditional white dove scenario, this groom's thoughtful gesture is setting high standards for brides and animal and Hedwig lovers everywhere.
