Happy Spring! Melissa Perella Photography & Design sent in this cutie who was the best dog in his parent’s wedding. Captain is the cutest Chinese Crested pup who probably steals the show wherever he goes.
From Melissa: “Kelsey LOVES her dog, Captain. He is a long haired Chinese Crested and the first time she emailed me to inquire about her wedding date; she told me that Captain is her son. Being the animal lover that I am, I was hooked! Captain was an instrumental part of the day, hanging out with the ladies while they got ready, doing some special dog portraits, and watching his parents get hitched.”
From Kelsey: Our baby is 12 pounds of pure rotten. We have spoiled him to pieces. He is half Chinese Crested Powder Puff and half Chinese Crested hairless. So he has hair like the powder puff version of the breed, but it’s not as thick. He has a couple of little bald spots, which I think just adds to his character He will be five years old on June 29th of this year, so he had just turned 3 when my husband and I were married. Although I’m a huge advocate for rescue animals, he was not a rescue. Friends of ours (the couple that told us about him) have his sister, Dixie. Captain has enhanced our life so much, so how could I not give him an important spot in our wedding? I think my stepdad was more excited about walking Captain down the aisle than if I had asked him to walk me. My mom walked me down the aisle.
