Are Puppies Replacing The Groomsmen?


The only thing better than eternal love: puppies. Newlywed Meghan Addison Butler agrees. After seeing Pennsylvania bride Sarah Mallouk Crain and her bridal party opt for rescue dogs instead of bouquets in September, Butler had her bridesmaids do the same in North Carolina last month.

Butler contacted the Greater Charlotte SPCA to deliver eight puppies to her prewedding photo shoot with hopes that that would help the dogs find forever homes. The recently married lawyer and her husband — who together have adopted two cats and two dogs — also donated to their local SPCA in lieu of buying wedding favors.

Photographer Brittany Boland of Discover Love Studios captured the nine ladies and their puppies outside, and the outcome of the photo shoot worked as planned. The studio, which Boland runs with her husband, Clint, confirmed on its Facebook page that all of the canines have been adopted since Butler said, “I do!”
