Two of Instagram’s most famous dogs tied the knot recently in a wedding ceremony more lavish than most human’s weddings at New York City’s High Line Hotel.
Toast, a 10-year-old Cavalier King Charles, and Finn, a 7-year-old Dachshund/Chihuahua mix, fell in puppy love at a charity gala for the Humane Society of the United States. Both share similar life passions for helping rescue dogs find forever homes, which their parents say gave them plenty to bark about.
Both canine and human guests at the lavish affair were blown away by the attention to detail. “It was incredible,” said Loni Edwards, Chloe the Mini Frenchie’s mom. “I had no idea it was going to be an actual real wedding. It was beautiful.”
Many of the guests seemed to think that the event would be the start of a canine trend. “2016, mark my words, is going to have so many celebrity dog weddings. Hopefully they’ll all be for a good cause and fun,” said Toast’s mom, Katie Surino. “I think we started something here today.”
The couple were first engaged when Finn proposed to style-icon Toast last November in Central Park. A place where they love to go on walks and share bones.
While Toast floated down the aisle in a custom-made Marchesa wedding dress, Mark Drendel, president of Canine Styles, said that the company had, “designed all the collars, leashes and tuxedo” to round out the pair’s looks.
Gossip columnist Cindy Adams officiated the ceremony, and the guests included model Lindsay Ellingson, who brought her dog Carly the Cockapoo, and Real Housewife of New York Carole Radziwill with her dog Baby.
Online wedding registry Zola hosted the wedding with a portion of proceeds benefiting the National Mill Dog Rescue, a nonprofit based in Colorado that rescues, rehabilitates, and finds homes for discarded breeding dogs.
Toast’s dad is Josh Ostrovsky, also known as the Fat Jew, but she was given away by her godfather Simon Doonan, creative ambassador for Barneys. “Walking the runway as the father of the bride today, it was the greatest honor of my life,” said Doonan.
Excited to be a part of such a charitable event, LittleThing’s cameras were rolling as these two cute canines said their puptials.
