Newlyweds James Lowder and Katie Young became internet superstars last month when a photo of their wedding party running from a T-Rex went viral, and they recently revealed the cute story behind the hilarious shot.

The couple told Louisiana local news station WGNO Thursday that dinosaurs have been a theme throughout their relationship: Lowder was wearing a T-Rex shirt on their first date and had a dinosaur bumper sticker on his car. They also have a dinosaur-print shower curtain and a dinosaur pillow in their home.

Young said during their photo shoot, photographer Quinn Miller suggested the wedding party pretend they were running from a dinosaur, and afterwards, he Photoshopped in the T-Rex.

"We just want to keep our relationship youthful and fun and show our personalities, and I think the photo really did that for us," Young said.
