Mutual Admiration Society

I was planning on posting about a cool blog I just discovered when low-and-behold they blogged about me! But let’s be clear: today’s blog is not an obligatory reciprocal act, but something I really want to share. I’ve written a bit about it before, but now I’ve discovered is an entire site dedicated to having dogs in your wedding ceremony. Vow-wow-wow. Cool name, too.

Dog lovers understand.

Dog lovers understand.

I couldn’t agree more with the entire premise of the blog and Celia Milton, the top dog at Vow-wow-wow is a wonderful celebrant. We are both graduates of the Celebrant Institute.

So for dog lovers everywhere check out Celia, Michael, Gary, and Sparky, and all their great tips, information and just plain fun stuff.

How cute is this?

I must be honest – the logistics of having your dogs in your ceremony aren’t easy. It is also difficult to find venues that will allow it. It’s helpful to have a dog-handler for the day, someone who loves your pups and can take care of them after their ceremony duties are done. Obviously there’s a lot to consider to make the day really work for your canines. But it can be done and when its done right, its amazing. If you’re a true dog lover, I know you’ve thought about this. No, you’re not crazy, this is happening more and more. The Bark, a great dog magazine, wrote a nice piece on it.

I love it!

And there are photographers who specialize in dogs as well. In fact, two of my favorite photographers, Susie Forrester, and Jane Caruso-Dahms, both do amazing work with dogs. Jane is very involved in the rescue movement and has done many fundraisers and shows raising awareness and money to help dogs. So pick a dog-friendly photographer, along with your dog-friendly officiant.

And coincidentally, at the wedding I officiated yesterday the couple brought their dog. He didn’t do anything special, they just wanted him there.

Hope you enjoy Vow-wow-wow and I’ll be back next week with more wedding adventures.
