favourite pup appearances from 2017

From engagement sessions to save the dates, custom wedding invitations and wedding day cameos -- there are so many ways to incorporate your furry loves into your celebration. The Laura Kelly Bride tends to be pretty obsessed with her four legged bestie, so much so that an entirely new year-in-review post was calling my name this year... 

A blog post with more wagging tails than ever before: I am so excited to bring you a collection of my favourite pup appearances from 2017! 

And there's no better place to start than my beautiful friends Brittany, Zach, and Brutus. That little tongue sticking out makes this the perfect family photo from their darling engagement session.  


Jasmine & Jasons's first date included this adorable speckled friend (you can read about that here!). Naturally we featured them as the amazing dog-parents they are during their meaningful engagement in downtown Ottawa. 


Puppies + sunsets are a good combo.  


Domino made quite the appearance at her parents' wedding at Stonefields. From a custom flower crown to an honourable mention on the cake topper...she truly was a star that day. 


The perfect wedding family photo (and one that I knew Nicole was dying for as a sneak peek!)


See little Dommy there on the laser cut cake topper? I mean... My brides think of absolutely everything. 


For Meagan and Devan, their pup made an appearance in their Fall engagement session from last year but couldn't join them on the actual day. Instead, a personalized wine label featured their names, wedding date, and a tribute to their fur baby. 


Back to Brutus for one more pic, he's just such a little baby! This condo engagement session was obviously one of my faves, and not just because that blonde is one of my closest friends in the world <3


Sometimes there are sleeping pups hanging out with me while I shoot the details. It's always nice to have company :) 


This handsome pup was SO good at posing for Mom & Dad's Lansdowne engagement sesh



Nothing compares to Sarah King and her obsession with every animal known to man. Sarah & Jordan have the BIGGEST hearts and it shined through on every part of their wedding day. If you've swooned over their wedding at Evermore than you'll know they had visitors from Bullies in Need and made a hefty donation in lieu of wedding favours. 

But their pup love didn't stop there...



The entire wedding party made friends as well: 


And they even had Shannon Kristen design a custom crest featuring some of their furry friends amongst a gorgeous floral garland. This stationery design makes me so happy!


Kelly & Peter couldn't pick just one occasion for photos with Ben... 


So he came back for the wedding day too! And with a bow tie to boot :)


Ariane and Brandon planned a "walk in the woods" type engagement session on a cloudy fall day and these little guys made for some adorable photos. 



While the bridesmaids are getting into hair and makeup, sometimes the groomsmen can be found in the lake. And of course not without one very loyal lifeguard watching over them. 


I'll end this post with a pup who held quite the title at Carly & Ryan's elegant backyard wedding: The Dog of Honor. 


Simply the best :) 


If this post didn't make you slightly happier than you were before, there's something wrong with that heart of yours. I miiiiight have to make this post a regular every year... That is, as long as my couples keep being obsessed with their puppies!
