Their love isn't extinct.

A woman decided to surprise her now-husband by getting dressed in a T. rex costume for the photo of the first time they saw each other on their wedding day.

Their was some madness to the method. Elizabeth Gardner's maiden name is Rex, so she figured she'd go for the play on her last name right before she and Tom Gardner tied the knot last November in Bald Head, N.C.:

"I was a little worried he’d be like, ‘Come on babe. This is once in a lifetime thing and you can’t take it seriously?’ But he knows me long enough to know I can never be serious. I just took a shot in the dark in the dark and it worked out. He always tells me, ‘You do you.'"

Tom was indeed totally onboard with his new wife's stunt. “It validated for me all the planning that went into that day and started things off right and kept it lighthearted,” he said. “I knew I was marrying my partner in life."

There's no word if they honeymooned in Jurassic Park, though.
