My fiance and I can’t wait to have our wedding and include Sparky and Rocco. How can you help us?
If your dog is going to be part of the wedding party, they should match the rest of your attendants! We can help by designing florals for your dogs; boutonnieres, flower decked collars, even ring pillows so they can bring those rings down the aisle.

How do you accommodate dogs and their owners?
At my shop, all pets (and children!) are welcome as long as they’re well behaved. 🙂 Not all shops allow dogs, but I do….we have a shop filled with good smells. And, one of the big hotels here, a Hilton, is dog friendly – how great is that?
Do you have a great dog/wedding story?
Loved working with the owners of a dog kennel who own six Australian shepards of their own! One of their dogs, SO well behaved, was the ring bearer. He wore a tuxedo, and I attached a ‘corsage’ with ribbon to the tuxedo, at his neck, and then I also helped the owner attach the wedding rings as well. He waited behind the scenes until the rings were needed during the ceremony and then Zack called to him, and he went bounding down the aisle to Jane and Zack, and Zack took the rings from him. He is part of their family, and he was part of the wedding party. 🙂
Tell us about YOUR dogs!
I grew up with a great mutt who we named Tiffany so she would have a pretty name. 🙂 She was a real mix of a dog, and the sweetest most friendly dog to have growing up. I currently have two cats, Humphrey and Lauren, brother and sister, 11 years old. They meet me at the door when I come home; they actually think they’d dogs.
We all do!
