Julianne Hough and Brooks Laich’s wedding day was one of the most talked-about celebrity nuptials of 2017, and it looks like the bride’s equally-famous big brother, Derek Hough, wanted to play a role in the conversation—according to hilarious new photos shared by the groom.

On Tuesday, November 21, Laich posted an Instagram slideshow of select images from his Coeur d’Alene wedding. “When you go through your wedding photos only to discover your brother-in-law found his way into every single shot of you and your wife…….” he wrote. “#threescompany #weloveyouD #family #toofunny.”

The accompanying snapshots show Derek, who was also one of the groomsmen, photobombing the couple in nearly every stretch of the weekend. Derek surfaces in moments ranging from the couple’s rehearsal dinner set-up to the bride and groom’s grand wedding entrance by boat. The Dancing With the Stars pro also gave a toast to the couple at their welcome dinner.

In a recent interview, Derek commented on his friendship with his new brother-in-law. “I love him so much, he’s an amazing guy to have as a brother,” he told Us Weekly, while adding that his sister was “happy and incredible.”

Other groomsmen included Arrow actor Teddy Sears, who was the one to first introduce the NHL player to the Safe Haven actress. “I don’t know where I would be in life without the brotherhood and friendships of these good sirs,” Laich wrote in September alongside photos taken by Sarah Falugo. “Endless thanks to you all fellas, much love! #groomsmen.”
