These Furry Friends Made Their Love Official In The Cutest Canine Wedding Ceremony

These rescue dogs took their puppy love to new heights by tying the knot in a wedding ceremony of their own.

Kathryn Yeaton of Fairfield County, Connecticut, is a wedding photographer and the owner of Brave Hearts Photography. She is also the owner of two rescue dogs, Lucy and Teddy. After noticing how adorable her pups would look posing as a married couple, Yeaton decided to take a photo of them in cute wedding outfits to promote her business, according to

"It was only a matter of time before I realized I had a white dog and black-and-white dog, and they looked too perfect as a bride and groom," Yeaton told the outlet.

However, the attention and buzz she ended up receiving from the photos inspired her to take it a step further. She coordinated an entire wedding, complete with hors d'oeuvres, invitations, flowers and a wedding cake fit for the furry pair.

The photographer spent a few weeks planning the wedding, according to She assembled the pooches' outfits from items on Etsy, and used dog-safe ingredients including peanut butter, shredded carrots and honey for the wedding cake.

The pups love story began in 2013, the photographer told HuffPost in an email. After Teddy was adopted in October of that year from a Tennessee shelter, Lucy -- who was adopted a year earlier -- played hard to get.

"When we first brought Teddy home, Lucy wanted nothing to do with him," Yeaton told HuffPost. "He followed her around for two days before she would acknowledge him."

Since their first tepid interactions, their love has blossomed and the two spend their days chasing each other around. The photographer said that after getting "married," they have continued their fun. The pooches even went on a "honeymoon," accompanying their owners to Cape Cod. They enjoyed long walks on the beach and partook in some dog ice cream.

The canines are going on another adventure this weekend -- this time to upstate New York, where Yeaton says Teddy will practice running and jumping into the water to retrieve sticks. Lucy, concerned with maintaining her doggy-do, will watch and support her new hubby from the sidelines.
