If you’ve ever planned a wedding, then you know the definition of stress. It’s one thing to find the venue and work out all of the logistics of the big day. It’s an entirely different ordeal to play referee with dueling bridesmaids and gruff groomsmen. One couple solved those problems in the best way possible.

A Bridal Party With 32 Feet

There were no humans on either side of their bridal party- just their seven dogs! It was a bridal party with a grand total of 32 feet! Sophie, Kyuubi, Serena, Skit, Sugar, Stark and Stella made their incredible debut during their parents’ wedding ceremony and the internet has fallen in love with them ever since!


Francis Cleofas and his new wife Irene run a dog training business. Francis is a highly sought dog behavior consultant known as the “Dog Coach.” Their perfectly prim and proper pooches stood by the newlyweds on the happiest day of their lives. Is there really any better way to celebrate a love story?

One of the delightful doggies even acted as their flower girl! She strutted her stuff down the aisle, complete with a flowered crown and a beautiful blush rose in her mouth.

“Stella and Serena were flower girls and Stark was the ring security. The rest walked with the groomsmen and bridesmaids,” the happy couple told Bride and Breakfast.


Some of the puppers even wore matching bow ties! No detail was spared and there was nothing these pups wouldn’t do to make the day special. The four-legged friends even got in on the couple’s pre-vow pictures!


Loving Eyes And Pawsitively Happy Tails

You know those “first look” photos where the groom’s reaction is caught when he first sees his breath-taking bride? Check out the adorable first look Irene’s furbaby had. You can just feel the love in his eyes!


There is no better way to celebrate your love and commitment than by including dogs. Their loyalty, dedication, and forgiveness are an example of the kind of love humans should have for each other every day.

“They make every day better. We never thought of going to places and meeting inspiring people if not for them,” said the couple. “They remind us that it’s the simple things in life that matter, like getting home safe after a long day. They are a reminder to live in the moment and not to judge or discriminate.”

Just one question remains. Which lucky dog caught the bouquet?
