I love visiting Sarah Der’s blog, she takes such lovely photos and many of her clients include their pets. I was so excited when I saw a beautiful bride and her Boston Terrier wearing a Chevron bow-tie in an overview post. You can imagine my reaction when I found out that there were four dogs in the wedding party!
From Michelle: “We have 4 dogs, 2 Boston Terriers and 2 pugs! Our oldest is a male, brindle Boston Terrier named Woodrow but we call him Woody! He is 9 yrs old. Then we have a male Pug named Stuart, he is 8 yrs old.
Molly is our female Boston terrier who is 5 yrs old and lastly we have Charlie, a male pug who we think is 6 years old. We rescued him from a rescue that I helped foster dogs through, 4 Paw Life Saver Rescue out of Greenville, NC.
Our dogs are well trained so there wasn’t much to them being in our wedding! We bought the boys bow ties and they walked down the aisle with the groomsmen.
I made Molly a pearl necklace with a flower and she walked down with my maid of honor! Since most people get married in the summer time, my advice for including dogs in the ceremony is to always have water on hand and shade on hand for the dogs if they are going to be outside!”
I couldn’t resist sharing these photos of Michelle and a horse from her bridal portraits.
