Leo, the Rottweiler Pup's Important Role


What's a celebration without our fur babies? Mackenzie and Mike understood the importance of including their beloved canine companion, Leo, in their wedding festivities. Leo, a charming Rottweiler with a heart full of love (and a mouth full of slobber), added an extra layer of happiness and warmth to their special day.


Leo, with his adorable beady eyes, joined Mackenzie and Mike as they exchanged their vows. Dressed in an adorable bowtie, he walked down the aisle as the ring bearer, stealing everyone's hearts.


During photos, Leo became the life of the party. He hung out with the wedding party and gave everyone slobbery kisses. Mackenzie and Mike's friends and family couldn't help but shower him with affection, capturing countless photos and creating memories to cherish.
