'Jurassic Park' shot recreated at a wedding in Toronto at which the actor was a guest
If Jeff Goldblum attended your wedding, you wouldn’t pass up the opportunity to ask for a couple of selfies, would you? Well, newlyweds Pamela and Jesse Sargent took the idea a step further: setting up a shot from Jurassic Park.

Wedding photographer Adam Biesenthal shared the photograph with The Huffington Post, which shows the bridal party, including Goldblum and his fiancée Emilie Livingston, running through a field towards the camera. The 61 year old actor came to be at the wedding in Toronto because his fiancée is a friend of the bride. Biesenthal later photoshopped an image of a roaring T. Rex into the photograph behind the party, so it looks like they’re attempting to run away from it.
Everybody likes a good sport, and luckily for the happy couple the actor obliged them in their request. After all, it’s exactly the sort of thing you’d think famous actors would be sick of being asked. But according to Biesenthal, Goldblum was “a very cool guy, who when the groom asked him to do this shot he enthusiastically agreed.”
Goldblum played mathematician Dr. Ian Malcolm in the original 1993 movie Jurassic Park and its 1997 sequel The Lost World. The making of a fourth movie, entitled Jurassic World, has been continually delayed in production and is currently mooted for a June 2015 release. It will feature man of the moment Chris Pratt in the lead role.
Meanwhile, Goldblum is preparing to tie the knot himself, having proposed to Livingston while on holiday in Hawaii last month.
