Like many, the dream of having my wedding be in the New York Times, felt just like that, a dream. And today, it happened for me. Well sort of. Instead of covering the soon to be ‘best day of my life’, it’s about the subject that keeps me up at night. Figuring out what to do and how to celebrate this amazing 14 year relationship I’ve been in and commemorate our love. In over a decade we’ve accumulated a lot of friends. Whether or not we’re now just Facebook friend or acquaintances, many of these people are a part of our love story, and as someone who is always of the ‘more the merrier’ mindset, I want every special human, that’s ever touched my/our lives to be a part of my big day.
It’s common knowledge that I am not a fan of most mangy mutts but for Toast and Finn I’ve always made an exception. Just like Daddy Karl Lagerfeld, I am an equal opportunist when it comes to marriage equality and the same goes for dog weddings. Let Toast and Finn’s nuptials be the first of their kind, raising awareness for the importance of marriage equality. Who are we to stand in the way of true love?
Today, I bore witness to Toast and Finn tying the knot and there might have been a tear or two shed… not by moi of course! Zola wedding registry hosted the dream wedding for Instagram’s most beloved dog influencers Toast (@toastmeetsworld) and Finn (@friendsoffinn) in support of National Mill Dog Rescue. Unlike a traditional wedding, the celebration of love (don’t tell anyone I uttered that phrase) provided a portion of proceeds from the gift registry and ticket sales to the National Mill Dog Rescue. Stopping puppy mills is a cause near and dear to both the bride and grooms heart and we all love when our favorite celebrity animals get behind such a worthy cause.
Officiated by Cindy Adams and walked down the aisle by her Godfather, Simon Doonan, Toast was a blushing bride surrounded by loved ones, including fellow social media canine influencers. Speaking of the guest list….
In fashion news, Toast donned Marchesa and Finn wore Darcy Miller. I’ll let it slide that the bride didn’t wear Chanel but only because her jewel encrusted veil was mesmerizing.
Vows were barked, cake was cut, it was the wedding of the year. Cheers to the happy couple! Wishing you a lifetime of puppy love.
When it comes to weddings, inevitably something goes off course. From awkward speeches to even worse indiscretions, we all have a wedding story, which is why just watching the trailer for the new comedy The Wedding Ringer has me marking my calendar for its January 16th release.
