Other cool stuff we should know about: On the morning of our wedding, my dog ate my veil. It was quite an entertaining, albiet unexpected, element of our wedding day. It was high-drama right after it happened, then pretty hilarious a couple of hours later when we had a new veil from Nordstrom in-hand.
Veil fiasco aside, we love dogs and have a passion for animal adoption, so we named the tables at our reception after rescue dogs that have touched our lives. So, instead of naming them tables 1, 2, 3 and so on, we named them after dogs past and present that either we or our family/friends have rescued. We included a photo and a brief story about each dog at his/her table. In addition, on our wedding website, we invited guests to make donations to the Humane Society in lieu of wedding gifts from our registry.
One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: Intimate, laid-back and whimsical.
Favorite thing about the wedding: Sharing it with family and close friends
