In the six years that I’ve been blogging, I have noticed that more weddings are pet-friendly. So I wasn’t exactly surprised to see pet friendly wedding is listed as a top 2018 wedding trend. I feel confident that this trend will continue in the future. Thanks to Shelby Chante’ Photography for sharing this dog-friendly wedding with Ryah, the mixed breed, and Roman, the German Shepherd. As if the dogs weren’t enough in themselves, wait until you see the cake topper!
From Mindy: “Nate and I had moved in together after college, and we started talking about getting a dog. Right before we went and adopted Ryah, I said to Nate ‘are you sure you want to get a dog? This is like a 14-year commitment to me’ he said yes!
Ryah is three and a half. She is a Pitbull, Lab, and Lhasa Apso mix. She is pretty shy. We got Ryah from the local Humane Society in Springfield. After we got her, we decided it may help her to have a friend, so we adopted Roman a few months later.
Roman is three. He is a German Shepherd. Ryah really started coming out of her shell and trusting us after we got Rome.
Those dogs are a part of our little family. They both love swimming and cuddling. Rome is my little sidekick and follows me everywhere. Ryah is a little more independent but still loves attention.
We try and take them everywhere. Last summer we traveled to Colorado with them, and we have many more adventures planned. Having them in the wedding was extremely special to us!”
