There’s something about farmhouse weddings that will always give them a special place in our hearts — the rustic beauty of the venue coupled with the sweet romance of a wedding is a no-fail recipe for gorgeousness! Today’s beautifully romantic farmhouse wedding shot by Diana Lupu is no differet. Angali and Scott tied the knot in an intimate celebration among the trees, sky, and of course, a sweet red barn!
Some words about the special day from the photographer, Diana Lupu:
“Angali and Scott were married at The Farmhouse Inn, under the most perfect oak tree at sunset, with lanterns hanging from the branches. There were roosters and hens roaming the grounds and over 100 acres of fruit and vegetable trees, and perfectly manicured lawns. Their day was perfect from start to finish, with every detail so meticulously planned out and created by the beautiful Angali, herself. Not only is this couple the sweetest around, but their love was such a joy to capture. I adored them, their family, and that adorable red barn so very much.”

We’ve all seen them — the photos of adorable pups on a wedding day, cavorting down the aisle with a ring sewn to their collars or a flower crown atop their ears. There’s no denying that dogs at weddings are just too. Darn. Cute.
If you’re thinking of bringing your pup to your wedding day though, there’s a few things to keep in mind:
Does your venue (ceremony and reception) allow pets?
If you’re bringing your dog, what do you need to pack for them to get through the wedding? (Think a leash, food, treats, any medication, etc.)
How well-behaved is your pup? Is there a chance he could start barking during there ceremony, or steal the show in some other not-so-desirable way?
Who will be your default dog-sitter during the wedding ceremony and even the reception? (Your wedding day is such a whirlwind, you won’t have time to remember if Fido is hungry or needs to go out!)
How will your pet get home, if you’re doing a special getaway or spending the night elsewhere?
Once you figure out the above questions, you’ll get a clearer sense of whether or not having your fur baby at your wedding day is actually right for you. If your dog will be attending, it’s safe to say you’ll they’ll be TOTALLY excited to watch you tie the knot, just like these 35 furry friends below!
