We had planned a beautiful relaxed ceremony on the beach with the sand between our toes and our puppy by our side. Unfortunately, mother nature had other plans as we had terrible rain for the days leading up and on our wedding day …
I had planned for wet weather so we had a plan b for our wedding ceremony, and it was a lovely plan b so I was fine with that. The only thing that made tear up a little was the realisation that Stelly wouldn’t be able to be a part of our ceremony.
I had made her a cute little dog necklace for the wedding and our lovely neighbour who happens to be a photographer came over and took so photos of Mr BTR getting ready and some great pics of Stelly. So she did feel a part of our special day.
I really wanted to share a couple of the pictures with you guys. Some people thought we were a little crazy for wanting our dog to be in our wedding ceremony and I totally understand.

Before we adopted Stelly I was the same! In fact I can’t believe how much Stelly has changed me in that way. I had never had a dog for a pet and am a little scared of dogs (especially big ones) but I can really appreciate now just how much love they can give and how they really are an important part of the family.
So, did you have your dog in your wedding? Are you planning to include your dog or have you seen someone else include their dog in their wedding?
I’d love to hear your plans and stories!
