It’s more than puppy love: Beloved pets are taking bigger roles in weddings

Jennifer Hague met her future husband at a dog park where she had taken the other love of her life — a saucy miniature schnauzer named Remington.
It all started at the dog park: Jennifer Hague and her fiance Aaron Starr of Olathe met taking their dogs Abby (right) and Remington out for some fresh air. At their wedding in October, 5-year-old Remington will sport a tie and 6-year-old Abby will don a skirt and necklace.
Hague hit it off with Aaron Starr, the owner of a velvety brown vizsla with floppy ears named Abby.
The dogs liked each other. The humans fell in love. A happy foursome quickly formed. The next year, Starr surprised her one evening at the park. He handed her a dog tag engraved with “Jennifer Starr,” dropped to one knee and proposed.
So of course the dogs will walk down the aisle at the Olathe couple’s wedding in October — Abby in custom canine pearls and handmade tulle skirt, Remington in a jaunty tie.
“Everyone knows how much our dogs mean to us and are just as excited as we are to have them included,” said Hague, a social media manager and a pet photographer who owns FixYourImages Photography.
