Plenty of couples ask their dogs to be their flower girls or ring-bearers during their big ceremony. After all, their adorable pudgy faces are an ideal fit for the position. However, this couple from Connecticut surely had a different quirky role for their pup as they asked him to be one of the wedding videographers!
Nick Pierce and Julia Luckett first started their love story at Skidmore College a few years back. However, they lost touch until 2011 when they found each other again in a New York “dive bar.” Since then, the duo knew that somewhere along the way, they would be saying their I do’s.
This was exactly what happened when Nick finally popped the question last 2018, and shortly after, they began planning their wedding. Since the start, the couple was already sure about some aspects of their wedding, like the venue and the general theme of the big event.
However, they seemed to get lost when it comes to designating a role for their fur baby, Zhivago. The pup had been with the couple for at least three years and eventually became an integral part of their relationship. Of course, having him in the ceremony was their utmost priority.
Fortunately, one of their couple friends suggested they strap a GoPro camera on the pooch and let him roam around during the wedding while recording the event. The couple found the idea quirky and fitting for Zhivago as the pooch is highly energetic and friendly with strangers.
They decided to test it first at home to get the appropriate settings for the camera. And on the big day, they let Zhivago run loose just before the wedding. It was safe to say that the video footage was nothing short of amazing.
The pooch did his very best of capturing every one of the guests. He happily trotted alongside Julia’s bridesmaid during the ceremony. And at the reception, he was more than willing to receive pets and treats from the family.
The couple was astounded when they found the video, and they couldn’t thank Zhivago enough for making their day more special than ever. Watch the GoPro wedding clip here.
