ATLANTA - An Atlanta bride had a priceless reaction when her groom surprised her with puppies on their wedding day!
Ahead of their ceremony, Callie was with her eight bridesmaids taking photos when out of nowhere, nine puppies appeared. She had no clue her thoughtful groom had previously arranged the special delivery and was in complete shock.
The dogs were brought in for the bridal party to visit with before walking down the aisle. They came from Bosley's place, a local orphanage for underage puppies.
“Callie and I are huge dog lovers and have rescued three between us,” Jeff Dauler said. “I wanted a way to make some of the wedding stress go away for Callie for at least a few minutes. What better way than to snuggle with a puppy!”
I love this pic so much. The moment when @callieriggs saw the pups! (Thank you, @simplysarah_photography.) ... #Repost @simplysarah_photography: @jeffdauler , I would say "mission accomplished" to your goal of surprising @callieriggs with puppies 🐾 She was ECSTATIC! Also, the world loves you, Callie! Your reaction has gone viral... as seen on @brides , @refinery29 , and @hln this weeks!
Callie shared a video of the surprise on Instagram, and said she started to lose it toward the end. (Watch here)
“Jeff Dauler is the best,” she said. “All of these little baby nuggets are available for adoption.”
Wednesday morning, Callie told FOX 5's Katie Muse so far, five of the dogs have been adopted. If you're interested in giving one of the puppies a forever home or you'd like to learn more about Bosley's Place, click here.
The Daulers are firm believers in gratitude and gave each guest at their wedding a "Gratitude Journal" to document something each day they are grateful for. They are now selling leftover journals from their big day and donating the proceeds to Bosley's Place. To purchase one, click here.
