A wedding is a once in a lifetime affair, and the couple customarily go to extremes in planning their big day. When an animal-lover couple decided to get married, they included their favorite pet, dogs, just so amazingly well into their wedding plan! 

Sarah Mallouk Crain, works for a rescue organization in central Pennsylvania called Pitties Love Peace. The newly wedded couple, Sarah and Matt, are now proud parents of three rescue dogs.  They also regularly foster dogs and help in finding permanent, loving homes for them.

Most of their guest were certain that they surely would include their precious pet love into their wedding theme. What the guest witnessed was truly unexpected and absolutely cute.


The bridesmaids walked in adorned, with puppies instead of flowers


The lovely bride in her beautifully designed wedding gown along with the lovely bridesmaids, all walked in with six tiny rescue puppies. The photographer Caroline Logan had a hay day clicking away at this exclusive opportunity.

“Having the puppies involved in the wedding brought so much additional joy to Matt and Sarah’s day,” Logan told The Dodo. “Though they weren’t a part of the ceremony, they were involved in their portrait time.”


Biggie Smalls is a 9-week-old pit bull mix pup rescued from the streets of Brooklyn, New York. He was specially chosen to be carried by the bride herself for the posing session … and boy, he  must have been proud!


“The puppies of course caused the photos to be extra natural, candid, and carefree — exactly what I strive for in my work,” Logan said. “The wedding party was loving all the puppy snuggles.”


And what about the groom and his groomsmen… they too had the pleasure of playing their respective parts with the pups


There were enough puppies around to provide all with snuggles and kisses


The young pups behaved so well throughout the ceremony, which went to show that they had received a lot of love and care in their short lives.

The little pups certainly proved to be a better choice than flowers, as besides lending beauty to the occasion, they also spread love and affection among the guests. What this couple thought of was exclusive and absolutely worth appreciation!
