This Couple Chose Puppies Over Bouquets For Their Wedding Photos

Do you take this pup to be your pup?

Matt Crain and Sarah Mallouk Crain, a Pennsylvania couple, had the most brilliant idea to include their shared love of dogs in their wedding.

And that was to add puppies. 😍

Sarah sits on the board of Pitties Love Peace, a rescue organization specializing in pit bulls and pit bull mixes. Six pups in the organization's care stopped by the wedding for a very adorable photo shoot.

"Animals are just a huge, huge part of our life and we wanted to find ways to incorporate them," Sarah told BuzzFeed News.

Sarah and Matt have three dogs of their own — which are like their kids, said Sarah — and also foster rescues.

The bridesmaids got to snuggle some boxer-hound mixes while Sarah held a sweet lil' pit bull for the shoot.

Matt and his groomsmen also got some puppy love before walking down the aisle.

"I think you can also see the pure joy in everyone’s faces when they’re holding a puppy. It’s not a fake joy," said Sarah. "It was just so beautiful."

"I’m normally a very calm, level-headed person but with the wedding day of course there’s some stress. There were some details that weren’t really coming together," said Sarah.

"Once we saw the puppies, every care in the world went away."

It also made the shoot a piece of cake for photographer Caroline Logan. "It was probably some of the easiest smiles I’ve ever worked with," she told BuzzFeed News.

Sarah hopes the photos show people you don't need to go to a pet store to find a new furry friend. "Don’t shop, adopt. The puppies that you see in our photos are just as good as any that you’d find in a pet store," she said.

And honestly the photos just make you wonder why anyone holds flowers for weddings when puppies are clearly so much better.
