These days, people get extremely creative when it comes to their wedding day. While traditional church ceremonies are still in style, outdoor venues, destination weddings, and even more clever themes are on the rise. One extremely popular idea as of late has been incorporating the bride and groom’s beloved pet into the big day. Whether it’s part of the ceremony (dog ring bearer?), or the pets are present in the ‘save the dates’, people love to have their fur children included in the wedding planning.
Marília and Matheus Pieroni’s experience was a bit different than this, though their wedding day did include an adorable pooch. The couple from Sao Paulo, Brazil, planned on saying their “I do’s” at an outdoor venue, but unfavorable weather conditions drove the couple and their guests under a tent to stay dry.
However, the human guests weren’t the only ones who grateful to be out of the rain! A soaked stray pup decided that Marília and Matheus’s wedding venue was the perfect place for him to get dry as well.
Both the guests and the ushers tried to shoo stray dog away, worried that his wet fur and muddy paws would ruin everything. However, their efforts were all in vain, as the sweet dog continued to come back to witness the joyous occasion over and over.
“As the ceremony started, to everyone’s surprise, it was the dog who came in when the bridal chorus began to play,” said Marília.
For whatever reason, this pooch was determined to be included in Marília and Matheus’s big day. After being kicked out of the venue for a 3rd time, the dog wandered back in right as the couple was saying their vows, and plopped down on Marília’s train!
“The dog entered and laid down to sleep on my veil. It was a very pleasant surprise for me, because I love animals. I liked it very much.” she said.
Unable to resist the stray dogs affection, the couple decided to include him in the rest of their festivities for the night. However, at one point, the dog went missing, and Marília and Matheus were unable to stop thinking about him. Together, they decided that they would take the sweet dog on as their first pet together, so they made it their mission to find him again.
“We decided to adopt him because he is a street dog. It took us a long time to find him again, but yesterday, we were contacted and told his whereabouts.” Marília said.
A joyous reunion took place, and the newlyweds adopted the lovable pooch. They decided to name him Snoop, and now they're one big happy family.
“He came home, and I showered him. He played a lot, ate, drank water. He is very happy and slept super good the first night. We’re all very happy.” said Marília.
This story sounds straight out of a Disney movie, don’t you think? Talk about a fairytale ending!
