More Than Just Puppy Love

Dogs are not just man’s best friend; for some, they are family. And to Christine and Zach’s love story, Bailey their pooch brought them closer together and made their wedding day extra memorable.

The two met each other through a dating app. Zach’s attention was immediately caught by Christine’s charming looks and taste in music, but it was on their third date (and after a San Francisco Bay Trail stroll with the adorable Bailey) when the two officially became a couple.

After over two years of being together, Zach knew Christine is the woman for him. Months of waiting and preparations went by, making sure that the moment would be perfect. He was finally able to ask her the question at a Christmas Party in front of her friends.

The couple loves to go for walks with their pup. It was in one of their hiking trips to Havasupai when they fell in love with the red rock aesthetic. And so, the Red Springs at the Red Rock Canyon was undoubtedly the perfect place for their wedding.

The wedding was intimate and touching, with the presence of close friends and family. The couple loved their first look. The orange accents in Christine’s bouquet and Chris’ tie complemented the surroundings and deepened the joy and warmth of the event despite the windy weather.

Of course, Bailey was present and even had a special part in the ceremony. Having sweet Bailey as the ring bearer, wearing a custom “I do too” dress was among the unforgettable moments of the wedding. It was truly a celebration of love and commitment between Christine and Zach, made more special by the presence of their loved ones and their lovely little pup.

Dogs are known for their unconditional love and loyalty, and Christine and Zach being dog-lovers says a lot about how they understand and show their love. As they step into this new chapter in their lives, we know that how they feel about each other is more than just puppy love.
