This dog-obsessed bride filled her wedding day with puppy love ― and lots of it.

At her Sept. 10 wedding in Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, Sarah Mallouk Crain, who works for the dog rescue organization Pitties Love Peace, asked her bridal party to put their bouquets down and hold rescue pups during their portrait session.

“My days are spent rescuing, training or rehabilitating dogs so it only seemed fitting that I needed to include some on our big day,” Crain told The Huffington Post.

The bride posed with a nine-week-old pit bull puppy, affectionately named Biggie Smalls, who was found on the streets of Brooklyn. The bridesmaids and groomsmen took turns cuddling with five boxer-coonhound sisters named Martha, Abigail, Dolley, Elizabeth, and Louisa after the original First Ladies of the United States.
