Wedding photographer Sandi Rufo has been to a lot of weddings, but this one stands out as one of her favorites. In addition to a gorgeous dog-friendly venue and amazing details, they included their handsome German Shepherd, Argo, for a picture perfect wedding.
From Sandi: “Kayla and John met through a mutual friend while attending a Vets Rock at Brookhaven Amphitheater in 2012. They moved in together in 2014 and adopted their fur baby German Shepherd, Argo just a month later.
Just four days before John was leaving for 18 months of training when he popped the question to Kayla. Of course, she said yes.
Aside from the 98-degree weather at this beautiful outdoor wedding, this was probably one of my all-time favorites. The Peconic Herb Farm is spectacular for a laid-back outdoor wedding. Kayla and John really did their homework on Pinterest with so many details to really make it their own style. It was a photographer’s dream wedding, (except the heat.)”
From Kayla: “My parents’ dog’s name is Roxy, she’s a 7-year-old English Black Lab. She is super mellow and enjoys the company of others. My mom decided that she too needed to be dressed up for the wedding, and a trip to Michaels later, we had made her very own pearl necklace!
My dog’s name is Argo, and he’s a 4-year-old Shiloh Shepherd. We got him in February of 2014. We had to drive 14 hours there and back to bring him into our lives. When we got engaged, I had one simple (well, probably not THAT simple) request: Argo MUST be a part of the wedding.
We were fortunate enough to get married at a venue that was happy to have Argo around, and working with Sandi Rufo, she met my request with enthusiasm. Thanks to my brother’s friend, Argo was able to be there for photos, and my dreams came true.”
