While having dogs in your wedding is an awesome idea, it isn’t always possible. That doesn’t mean they can’t still be a part of the big day, though. Sophie and Meat weren’t at the ceremony themselves, but that didn’t stop Maegan and Lou (and Swatch Studios) from including their dogs in the festivities! Sophie and Meat prove that just because you aren’t at the event, doesn’t mean you aren’t a wedding dog!
From Diana: “We loved photographing this beautiful Fall wedding in Ohio with gorgeous vintage details and two sweet pups. Maegan and Lou’s dogs, Meat and Sophie, were enjoying the excitement and attention that morning!”
From Maegan: “Meat and Sophie (Meat James and Sophie Grace if they’re being bad and need to be called by their full names). They are brother and sister and litter mates, which they just turned five in January. They are Shar Pei, American Staffordshire Terrier, Saint Bernard and Basenji mixes (yes, we did a DNA test).”
In addition to the getting ready photos, Maegan and Lou included Sophie and Meat with some fun details at the reception.
I love their cake topper!

Great ways to incorporate them when they can’t be there. Love the cake topper!
You see the wedding in Prague we were in where our dog was invited to be IN the wedding party along with their own? was awesome. I love that cake topper.
We are getting married in Aug. A Baroque Pagan Handfasting. I have 7 dogs attending – so I have a caretaker, intelligence toys, a dog treat bar and each dog gets their own water bowl. 🙂
Your wedding will be amazing! I hope you’ll let me share the photos on my site sometime.
What a beautiful way to say “I do”! I think it was a great idea to have photos taken with the dogs outside of the wedding itself. It would be hard to make sure that your pets are well taken care of when they are actually at your wedding. There is a lot going on! These are the sort of photos you cherish forever.
