Bride Ditches Traditional Wedding Photos to Help Rescue Puppies Get Adopted
Planning a wedding can be very stressful and overwhelming. However, one bride from Pennsylvania found a way to take away the stress by adding puppies to her wedding party.
Sarah Mallouk Crain and her husband Matt are big animal lovers and have three rescue dogs of their own. Crain, who works for an animal rescue organization called Pitties Love Peace, decided to swap out flower bouquets for puppies in her wedding, making for some pretty adorable photos.
“Having the puppies involved in the wedding brought so much additional joy to Matt and Sarah’s day,” photographer Caroline Logan shared with The Dodo. “Though they weren’t a part of the ceremony, they were involved in their portrait time.”
The puppies, Martha, Abigail, Dolley, Elizabeth, and Louisa, were named after some of the first ladies from the beginning of American history. The boxer-coonhound pups were just under a week old during the wedding.
“The puppies of course caused the photos to be extra natural, candid, and carefree — exactly what I strive for in my work,” Logan explained. “The wedding party was loving all the puppy snuggles.”
The groomsmen even got their chance to get in on the cuteness overload allowing for some pretty memorable pictures.
The puppies were all smiles during the wedding and proved that not every wedding needs to be traditional.
