Typically, whenever someone mentions a patriotic theme, red, white, and blue springs to mind. I was pleasantly surprised by this subtly hued and elegantly styled patriotic wedding shoot from wedding and event planner Sirpilla Soirees. Nicole put together a top team of wedding vendors, including Landrum Photography. Nicole’s Labradoodle, Larry, had a starring role. Whenever there is a dog involved, it is always a great idea to have someone responsible for the dog. Furever & Fur Always helped out with Larry for the day of the shoot.
Nicole chose The Manor at Bohemia River Overlook for the venue, and as you can see, it is spectacular. From Furever and Fur Always: “Larry was an obvious choice fur the Patriotic Shoot. That white coat went perfectly with the fun take on America’s colors–red, white & blue. He’s a natural in front of the camera and behaved like the perfect gentlemen with some help of squeaky toys and treats. His presence gave an elegance to what his mom, Nicole Sirpilla–lead designer and planner of Sirpilla Soirees, had envisioned fur this shoot. Larry fur president– don’t you think?“
From Nicole: “We went to pick up Larry, and he slept in his mama’s arms the whole ride home. Our first stop was to meet his cousin Quincy the Bernese mountain dog; they were best friends right away despite their size. Larry’s favorite toy is a ball. He also likes puppy pals, cuddles, CHEESE, ice cubes, playing lacrosse with dad, long walks with mom, and our new backyard!”
From Larry: “My best friend is twice my size. He weighs 130 pounds! I know all kinds of tricks such as: sit, shake, lay down, come, and stay! Since I was a puppy, I’ve always had a bow tie on my collar because I’m a gentleman.”

I love the colors that were chosen for this wedding. The use of pink instead of red was breathtaking to me! I like seeing people have their pets participate in weddings.

I like the house front photo of them all. That dog seems to be really photogenic and loves hanging with the camera. This is such a great motif.
What a fun picture of a beautiful wedding. The dog looks so happy, too!
Hindy Pearson says
Wow! From the dress and decor, to the location and of course the dog, these are some great images for the happy couple to enjoy for decades. You make a good point about having someone responsible for the dog during the festivities. Even the most well behaved pup needs a chaperone to keep them safe!
Cathy Brockway says
Absolutely gorgeous! So in love with the idea of including your best four-legged friends in such a special occasion.
Ruth Epstein says

Adorable photos ! Love the colour schemes .
Jana Rade says
Sweetness and happiness overload. Is it a coincidence or planning that the dress matches the dog’s fur color? 😉
