Celebrate National Dog Day with local wedding tails

It’s appropriate that National Dog Day takes place during the dog days of summer. Today marks the hound holiday, and we’re getting in on the celebration by spotlighting some of our favorite local wedding tails. In our current issue, we feature four Utah couples and their canine companions.


Check out the “Puppy Love” article and read how each pooch helped make their owners’ nuptials special, from calming a groom’s nerves to providing some unexpected post-ceremony excitement.

Below, enjoy a closer look at the featured couples and their pups, plus extra snapshots of Utah brides, grooms, and their dogs.
