California Dogs “Marry” In $5,000 Wedding

You may have heard of people including their pets in their weddings, but have you ever heard of dogs getting married?

That’s exactly what bride Scruffy Rubin and groom Snickers Carter did on a hot Sunday afternoon at the Palm Desert Resort Country Club in California. The wedding, costing over $5,000 included over 100 guests in attendance to celebrate the occasion.

Both the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom coordinated this lavish event, complete with was complete with a reception, wedding cake, open bar, and “priest” performing the vows, according to an article on AZCentral.com.

Rather than registering for wedding gifts, the mothers requested that donations be made to the Orphan Pet Oasis Humane Society of the Desert in North Palm Springs.

The canines were dressed to the nines in their formal attire. The bride was dressed “in a custom couture dress, leash and veil made by Jan Farber” and the groom, Snickers, “donned a doggie tuxedo designed by Spoiled Dog Design.”

What do you think about the doggy wedding? Would your pet ever get “married”?
