The Wigglebutt Wedding is a mere 23 days away! Dexter James Bryant will wed Zoe Elizabeth Sorensen for what promises to be one of the most entertaining fun fundraisers of the year….heck of the decade.
What started out as an idea to have a small backyard wedding to raise funds for Life's Little Paws, who incidentally rescued the bride the day she was scheduled to be euthanized, has evolved into a full-scale formal affair being covered by media, resplendent with sponsors, and ripe with celebrities in the dog world: From top canine couturier, Anthony Rubio, to Bocker the Labradoodle and 115 of our closest friends, family, and media in attendance, we are celebrating life. Zoe has gone from death's door to princess style wedding and will be whisked off her paws by her handsome, groom, Dexter.
Not only that, but on Saturday, June 29th, the day after the Wigglebutt Wedding, we'll be celebrating with famed photographer, Paul Nathan. Paul connected with me recently and asked if he could not only sponsor and attend the Wigglebutt Wedding, but take photographs in a full photo session at our host hotel !! Are you fan girlie screaming along with me right about now? It’s okay; let it loose: I sure did! Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!
Paul writes, “I am working on a follow up book to Couture Dogs of NY, and I was really hoping that it might be possible for me to attend Dexter’s wedding in order to get material for the new book. The follow up book will need to have a character of it’s own in order to have it’s own life.” Wigglebutt Wedding guests will be in this book!
Missy Johnson, our official artist, aka Dogs for the Paws aka Rembrandt for Rovers, recently gifted us with this stunning original piece:
And we aren't stopping there. Here's some of our many sponsors and we have a ton more to roll out.

Lucy Maloney is our official cake topper artist — and her creations are so divine, they merit their own blog post this week. Stay tuned.
Spoiled Pup Boutique will be outfitting the bridal party and attending the event!
The official photographer will be gracing us with her amazing visual talents. Welcome aboard to Michelle Macirella of www.luminariaphotography.com
Official tv station is News12CT and we have a full television show being devoted to the wedding!
And do you know all about our sponsors and more to follow? Yep, it's going to be a woofin' good and fundraising time. All in the name of dog.
But at our core, we are doing this to raise awareness and funds for Life's Little Paws, who gives so freely of themselves every day. In fact, an LLP adoptable dog will be present. Meet Maggie of Nancy Height, who is fostering this sweetheart.
And double bonus: We will be hosting a yearly event to fun fundraise for a rescue group. So we will announce our 2014 gala event at the Wigglebutt Wedding!
And here are a bevy of our friends who we know love dogs, cats, and everything in between. It's a blog hop and we encourage you to check them out, too!
