Although the bride and groom were the most important people of the celebration, their dogs were equally important on the occasion.
And they made it clear when their two dogs were invited to their wedding. The two indeed were the main attention of the event because who doesn't like being around dogs? Right?
But moving on to the bride and groom of the wedding, they looked absolutely stunning.
Lee donned a clean white suit with fitted black pants and a white shirt. The look was complete with a black blow tie and their engagement ring, of course.
The bride of the event, Grace Dooley, wore a standard white sleeveless gown with beautiful floral lacing and a netted veil.
Their wedding reception took place where Dooley had beautiful childhood memories in the Lincoln Park Zoo.
Since her childhood, Grace knew that it would be the place of her wedding reception.
"Being in the Lincoln Park Zoo that I visited as a child, located on the water in one of my favorite areas- I always knew this was where I would have my wedding reception"
Said the bride while talking about her venue.
Well, guess Grace fulfilled two of her dreams that day. She got married to her beau on July 7, 2018.
