This photo was taken by my talented photographer friend Squirrel- of the Nyack Snap blog.
It's our favorite of the day.
I know people who are absolutely horrified by the idea of dressing up a dog. Surely this photo proves that there was no pain or loss of dignity involved, but if you are one of those friends and you are reading this, you may not want to proceed. Just a warning ;-)
I should also employ the following disclaimer: this was not my idea. It was totally planned and executed by the E. girl and her friend V. with some help from their middle school English class. It was weeks in the making.
Thankfully, the weather cooperated, and the Nyack Memorial Park gazebo was available.
Then the guests arrived....
Oso and Lucy
and Coco.I didn't get a photo of the handsome cockapoo Elgin. Despite his late arrival, he was quite a social hit.
"Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today ......what comes next???"
Cupcakes, rawhide and doggie champagne were among the reception treats.
It's been decided that the bride and groom will maintain separate residences. Why mess up a good thing with cohabitation? Also, to quell any rumors that it was a "shotgun" wedding, both the bride and groom have been "fixed." Sorry to disappoint, but no puppies will be available.
Many thanks to the wedding planners! And wishing the Bride and Groom many years of happiness together.
