Cypress Grove Estate House Wedding with Rupert & Colby - Orlando, FL


Rupert & Colby are brothers & best friends! These two retrievers have a strong bond, not only with each other, but with their mom & dad, also.

Since they are such a big part of the family, it was important that they were included in this big day in their parent’s lives.

We picked the boys up from home where they showed us all their favorite toys & tricks before heading to the venue for photos before the ceremony. They greeted all the guests & walked down the aisle with the biggest smiles!


Here is what the Bride had to say about including Rupert & Colby in the wedding day!

Why did you include your dogs in your wedding?

They are like our children and we couldn't imagine such an important day of our lives not including them. 


What is the story of how your dogs became a part of the family?

I (Megan) got Colby while in college because I wanted a companion. I initially was just going to check out the litter and walked away with my deposit down on my Colbybear. Then 2 months later, I met Tommy. Colby & Tommy were not initially very big fans of each other- some jealousy from both sides, but now they're best friends!

We graduated college and moved home a year and a half later and immediately realized Colby needed a buddy! Rupert came to us all the way from Minnesota! My best friend's mom had his litter of puppies and wanted them all to go to good homes. She also happens to work for Delta. So once Rupert was ready, she flew him down to Orlando! Colby & Rupert have been inseparable ever since.


Did you incorporate your dogs into any other details on your wedding day?

They were on our favors we gave to our guests, which were koozies! Thanks to FairyTail we were able to see them at our hotel the morning of while getting ready!


All dogs are the best dogs, but tell us something that makes your dogs special?

They are the bestest and most sweetest boys! Colby is the fetch master and Rupert will bump his butt on you till you give him scratches. 


Is there anything else you’d like to share with us about your dogs?

Dad used them to propose to me!!
