Brazilian couple Marília and Matheus didn’t plan on a torrential downpour during their wedding, and they really didn’t expect a dog to sneak into the ceremony to get out of the rain.
At first, everyone tried to shoo the dog away from the wedding venue. The caterers, the staff, and even the guests tried to convince the stray dog that he had somewhere else to be.
Master of (sleeping through) ceremonies
Once the dog was firmly shooed, the bride stepped out of the car and promenaded to the altar for her big moment. But the dog had other plans. When it came time to exchange vows, the officiant burst out laughing because the stray dog was fast asleep on Marília’s beautiful veil.
The photographer caught some great shots of Marília and Matheus reacting.
This magic moment
By the end of the night, the rain had lifted and the stray dog was nowhere to be found. The happy couple made a plan to track down the stray in the morning. He clearly was meant to be part of their family.
Will you be my grandpa?
“We decided to adopt him because he is a street dog,” Marília told The Dodo. “It took us a long time to find him again, but yesterday, we were contacted and told his whereabouts.”
A week after the wedding, the couple took the dog home, named him Snoopy, and gave him a bath and meal in his forever home.
