My wife and I married in a Medieval Themed Style wedding back in the summer of 2002. Our only Papillon dog (at the time), Maxxie, played a major part in it. It was an outdoor wedding and afterwards the event was under a huge tent outside on a venue with about 10 acres. About 85 people showed up in costumes, but it was 32c that day and a good handful took their costume out before the dinner and party started, but fortunately we rallied them out to the road and took a great picture of them all!
Anyway, Maxxie was a big part of our wedding. He was there, “all dressed up” (wearing a tie), and was let loose the entire venue. He is a social monger and enjoyed greeting all the people and having free reigns to go where ever he pleased, although he usually stayed close to us. During the actual handfasting/wedding ceremony we did lock him up in the location’s house and once again during dinner (health regulations required we do this while we were eating), but for the most part he was on his own and just like any other guest, allowed to roam free and enjoy the festivities!
Here’s Our Video of our Maxxie at OUR Medieval Wedding
I know – you’ve probably seen it a gajillion times since 2002 when it was taken as I probably have linked this video here at PetLvr Blog a gajillion plus one times! But, it’s a cute video of all the outtakes of Maxxie done by our videographer. There are more pictures and videos over on our wedding site, http://HARTandYVONNE.com/blog/site-map
