It’s a wedding like you’ve never seen before.

Canines exchange vows for a special Valentine’s Day doggy nuptials. Suffolk County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) hosted these "puptials" with the hope of spreading love while encouraging people to adopt in pairs.

The canine bride and groom, along with their furry friends, are all dressed up in their wedding best. From doggy bowls to doggy treats, the event space is decked out for their special day. Aside from a little wedding day nerves, our blushing bride is ready to walk down the aisle.

But, this day is not just about getting these dogs hitched. It’s also about finding them a forever home.

State Senator Monica Martinez is officiating her first ever canine wedding and knows exactly what to do to tackle those wedding jitters and pull off the big day.

"I need to make sure they’ll share their milk bones with one another and make sure that they protect their family," she said.

After the couples tie the knot, dogs received prizes for the best costumes along with yummy treats.
