Amanda and Patrick Leigh have a whale of a tale to share about their wedding day.

While taking photos at the Mystic Aquarium in Mystic, Conn., the couple was photobombed by Juno, an 11-year-old beluga whale, who managed to swim right in between the two just before the camera clicked.

"That was just a lucky photo," Amanda told "We paused to fix the dress and the whale happened to come over. My husband and I looked behind us and he was right there, like, 'Hello.'"

The accidental snapshot proved to be not only a delight to the animal lovers, but became their 2013 Christmas card, too.

"Everyone loves it," Amanda said. "We never in a million years thought this would be anything."
