Dog-friendly weddings are my favorite kinds of weddings! Sawyer, the Feist Terrier mix, was the flower girl at the wedding of her favorite people, Jane and Doug. To be perfectly honest, I don’t know if Sawyer was technically the flower girl. But she’s a girl with a flower in her collar, so I think she qualifies! Thanks to Landrum Photography for sharing these images. From Jane: “Sawyer is a rescue from Lost Dog Rescue by way of a local shelter in Puerto Rico, All Sato Rescue which rescues street dogs in Puerto Rico. According to the info when I adopted her, she is Feist Terrier mix.
I adopted Sawyer on Super Bowl Sunday 2013 when she was about 18 months old. My mom adopted Sawyer’s brother shortly after I adopted Sawyer and they love having play dates.
Sawyer can be really shy, but she’s come so far since I adopted her.
Sawyer is just the sweetest soul, and for a long time, it was just Sawyer and me. When I met Doug in 2016, he was really worried that Sawyer wouldn’t warm up to him. He didn’t have anything to worry about though because she fell in love with him almost as quickly as I did. (Although Doug does ‘pretend’ to get offended because Sawyer will go right by him to greet me first if we come home together).
Seeing how great Doug was with Sawyer made me fall for him even harder, and there was no doubt that she would have to be a part of our wedding. We were worried because she can be shy, but she stole the show at the wedding and had everyone laughing so hard during the ceremony as she rolled around trying to get the one flower she let me put on her collar off.” Follow Landrum Photography on Instagram!

Love this. So awesome to include their fur baby!!
OMG I LOVE THIS!! If I ever do get married one day my Sophie girl is def going to be a part of the big day!!!
At our son wedding it was outdoors in a state park. Everyone was told to bring their dogs to attend. It was unto see all the different kinds of dogs and who they belonged too. Such a fun time.
Alli Smith says
Love all the photos! I also love weddings that include dogs. They are always so much fun.
What a sweet love story! Looks like Sawyer was a hit at the wedding even getting a good roll in the grass during the ceremony which I am sure gave everyone a good laugh. I think it is so special when a couple finds a way to include their beloved pets in their wedding ceremony.
I love seeing pictures like this because it shows how loving that family is. I would’ve totally had a dog in my wedding if I could have. Those pictures are just beautiful.
Melissa Chapman says
I love a pet friendly wedding because I like to take my guys everywhere. The photography was super and a great way to save the memories.
I love this so much! Dog friendly weddings really are the best. And seriously I don’t know if I could date someone that my fur baby didn’t love!
Thanks for stopping by! I wouldn’t be able to date someone if my dog didn’t love him either.

I just love looking at your photos. You can just see the happiness radiating off everyone. What a sweet dog too!
Your dog is the cutest!! These pics are amazing. So great when furry family members are included.
I love that they included the dog! It’s an important event and all family should be included.
My dad used to have a sweet little Feist terrier, so I have always had a soft spot for them. Sawyer is too cute!
Lisa Martin says

Such a well behaved dog … and very adorable too! Looks like everyone enjoyed the occasion!
Shelley King says
Love this story! I have never been to a wedding where the dogs were there. I have seen lots of engagement photos circulating with their animals. I think this is a really neat thing!
Great pictures! Love the ones with the water as background the most though. And that dog is just the cutest.
Kim Croisant says
Well, I never thought to include a dog or pet in a wedding. Makes sense though, because both are special. So sweet pictures too.
Cathy Mini says
Oh such a sweet dog. This is my first encounter that dog will be part of wedding ceremony and this is so much fun.
What a beautiful atmosphere! Everything is so perfect! And the photos are really great!
I love these types of photoshoots!
I won’t get married until we get a dog, so we can include him in the photos, haha.
Cathy Armato says
I love nothing more than pets being included in life’s most special events. Sawyer is so beautiful and sweet, I love that the bride and her mom both rescued street dogs from Puerto Rico – bless them for doing that! These photos are just gorgeous.
Love & Biscuits,
Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

The face Sawyer is making in the fifth picture from the top is both adorable and hilarious.
