Photo booths have become a pretty standard offering at weddings these days, as have the silly accessories and goofy photos that come from them. Typically, though, you don't see photos involving grandparents in viking hats, heart-shaped glasses and flipping off the camera. But thanks to the internet, we now have a glorious photo that features all of the above.

The photo, which is from a Nashville wedding of a couple that so far is remaining anonymous, is courtesy of Teale Photography. Buzzfeed Life tracked down the boyfriend of the sister of the groom, William Weiss, who helped get it posted on Reddit.

The unequivocal stars of this now-viral picture (viewed more than 2.5 million times at last count) -- a woman-of-a-certain-age flipping off the camera and her crown-wearing husband who is wearing a kingly crown -- were identified by Weiss as the grandparents of the groom.

"This was the first official wedding photo the bride saw," Weiss said. "She was laughing pretty freaking hard about it. It was sent it with no caption, just a dot dot dot."
