Review: Wedding Dogs
Anyone who’s ever owned a pet knows that they quickly become a part of the family. They become so special to many people, they can’t imagine them not being a part of one of the most memorable days of their lives – their weddings. Katie Preston Toepfer and Sam Stall have collected stories and photos from the weddings of 75 people to create the delightful book, Wedding Dogs: A Celebration of Holy Muttrimony.
Each two page spread tells a little about the couple and the role their four-legged family member played in their wedding on one side and gorgeous color photos featuring the dog(s) on the other. On more than one occasion the dog served as the ring bearer, but most of the time they were there to calm nerves or to lighten the mood.
I loved looking through Wedding Dogs, reading the stories, and admiring the photographs. I’ve read it once but flipped through the photos quite a few times. This would be the perfect book to give the bride to be, or any animal lover, really – I can’t wait to share a copy with our niece who will be tying the knot next year!
