If someone’s going to crash a wedding, it’s usually an estranged family member, bitter ex, or just some random stranger looking to score free booze. One couple in Brazil, however, received an uninvited guest of a more furry, four-legged sort, and a truly heartwarming story unfolded.
Marília and Matheus Pieroni were just beginning their tented São Paulo ceremony when, instead of the bride herself, a stray dog who had wandered in from the storm outside marched down the aisle to the bridal chorus. The canine was removed as the young couple entered, but just as they prepared to read their vows, he returned – and laid down to sleep right on top of Marília’s veil. Some women may have gone into full Bridezilla mode at this point, but Marília insisted the pup be welcomed as an official guest, which he certainly was. “It was a very pleasant surprise for me, because I love animals,” Marília told The Dodo.
As the night wound down, the newlyweds searched for their surprise acquaintance, but he had crept away unnoticed. Determined to take him in as their very own, a city-wide search commenced for the stray that stole everyone’s hearts. Scroll down to find out what happened next!
