Sarah Mallouk Crain works for Pitties Love Peace, a Pennsylvania non-profit created to help animals in need. Crain and her husband are both major animal lovers, so it only seemed right to incorporate shelter pets into their wedding somehow. Their answer? Save money on the flowers and have their wedding party carry puppies instead!
The extra puppy love brought “so much additional joy to Matt and Sarah’s day,” photographer Caroline Logan told Brides.
The puppies, a litter of Boxer-Coonhound sisters, are named after the original five First Ladies, and the pup carried by the bride, a nine-week-old Pitbull is loving named Biggie Smalls.
