The bride, Sarah, works for a pair of rescue organizations and she wanted to feature the puppies in her wedding pictures to raise awareness for shelter dogs.
Her wedding photographer, Caroline Logan says, “While photographing six rambunctious puppies definitely brought an added challenge, it also caused the bridal party to be more at ease. Having something to divert attention from that uncomfortable “Oh my goodness, I’m getting my picture taken… what do I do with my hands?!” feeling to pure puppy bliss made for relaxed photos where the bridal party was able to focus on interacting with the fun-loving puppies as I documented it all unfold.”
“And of course, the bridal party loved it! From the minute the puppies came bounding around the corner exploring their new surroundings, the bridesmaids were gushing about how cute they were. It was a dream for everyone!”
Sarah’s love of dogs was incorporated into other wedding details as well, including the invitations and the cake at her bridal shower.MORE NEWS: Amtrak Forced To Reduce Service Along Northeast Corridor Due To COVID-Related Staffing Shortage
