I Do! Two Newfoundlands Serve as Wedding Party for NHL All Star Goalie

Recently, a professional hockey player and his wife-to-be decided to forgo the traditional bridal party and opt for something a little more…dog friendly. Instead of asking humans to stand beside them, they opted to include their best four-legged friends. The pictures are as amazing as you would imagine. We think they scored a winning goal for sure!

When Mom and Dad elope and you get to be the groomsmen 🌿

Congratulations to the Murrays

Matt Murray, the goalie for the NHL’s Pittsburgh Penguins, eloped with his fiancee Christina in late June, and the Canadian couple wed at Lake of Bays in Ontario, Canada.

There was no maid of honor or best man. Well, not in the traditional sense. Instead, the couple’s Newfoundlands, Beckham and Leo, stepped in to be the bridal party. Christina and Matt started dating in high school. And in the years that followed, they added two giant Newfoundlands to their family.

Beckham and Leo wore leafy green necklaces, and they proudly watched on while the two-time Stanley Cup champion married his bride. The pups took their job very seriously. Watch below.
