What better way to say “I do” than with the help of some baby dogs?  How about some rescue puppies?

Iowa bride Samantha Clark ditched the traditional flower bouquets at her wedding for live puppies.  She did it to raise awareness for the need to adopt shelter dogs.

Clark, 23, contacted AHeinz57 Pet Rescue and Transport and they were happy to get involved.  The idea worked ,as the photos have gone viral.  

The puppies used in the photos were 8-week-old Chiweenies, a small Chihuahua/Dachshund mix.  We're told that the puppies in the pictures are now up for adoption.
