Woman Replaces Bouquets With Rescue Puppies at her Wedding

A 23-year-old Iowa woman replaced bouquets with rescue puppies for her wedding day in a bid to help the dogs find homes.

Samantha Clark came up with the idea to have the pups in her wedding after she saw another bride do the same thing on Pinterest.  She wanted to encourage people to adopt pets from rescue shelters, rather than buying them from breeders.

“I originally wanted to use my own three dogs but decided that they already have love and a home so I decided I wanted to try to help rescue dogs,” said Clark.

She contacted a local shelter, AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport, to see if they had puppies that could be included, and they did.

The eight-week-old puppies were carried down the aisle at Clark’s September 9 wedding by her bridesmaids. The bridal party also took pictures with the then 7-week-old dogs for Clark’s wedding photo shoot.

“They were a huge hit. The bridesmaids were ecstatic to hold them down the aisle. It all flowed very perfectly,” Clark said. “They were the best, well-behaved puppies I’ve dealt with.”

A book, which included pictures and biographies of other dogs at the rescue that are up for adoption, was also presented at Clark’s wedding. The rescue has reportedly received a plethora of adoption applications since then.

The puppies featured at Clark's wedding are also now up for adoption.
