It was the happiest day of their lives. This couple was in the middle of their wedding ceremony when an uninvited guest showed up.
A stray dog crashed the couple’s wedding, wandering off from the street. No one knew what it wanted or if it was dangerous. But when people noticed it, everyone jumped on their feet and waited to see what would happen next.
Mark Lia and Ana Davenport went to the same high school years ago. When Mark first saw Ana, he was smitten but couldn’t say anything to her. He had always been the shy guy in every group.
Mark had no idea that Ana shared the same feelings. The only difference was that she had the guts to go and talk to him. That marked the beginning of a long and beautiful love story. But as with any other story, it had its sad chapters.
Both Mark and Ana had a difficult childhood. Growing up in broken homes, they both had to struggle with things high school kids shouldn’t have.
But they had learned a lesson from their past: to cherish kindness and support their close ones no matter what. At one point, the couple’s only refuge from their problems at home was their relationship. It was the first time they felt true love.
When they got closer, they began sharing their traumas and family problems with each other. They realized how similar their pasts were and how much they needed each other.
From then on, Mark and Ana’s relationship only got stronger and would become their opportunity to leave a happy and peaceful life – just like they deserved.
After they graduated high school, they both went to the university in the same town. During their student years, they promised each other they would get married after graduation.
The couple knew that nothing could make them happier than becoming a family and living in happiness until their twilight years. It wasn’t going to be easy, but they made a promise to each other, and they believed in their love. But things would take an unexpected turn sooner than anyone expected.
After their graduation, the couple began planning their wedding. They didn’t have much saved, and their families couldn’t help, but they still had enough for a romantic celebration of their love.
Mark and Ana found the perfect chapel for their wedding in their town and planned everything to the smallest detail. They settled on the guests too. They would be their closest friends and family, with one exception: a stray dog. And this was something they definitely didn’t plan for.
The day had come. The wedding Mark and Ana had dreamed of since they were teenagers was finally happening. It was a dream come true.
The bride was dressed in the most beautiful white dress, and the groom was in tears when he saw her. All their friends and family were filled with emotion, waiting for the vows. But then the minister suddenly stopped the ceremony. What was going on? Everyone wondered. A dog had just entered the church.
All the people present at the wedding ceremony were very dear to the couple. Their university friends, close family, and even some coworkers were there.
But someone else was there too. It was an uninvited guest. A stray dog had just entered the chapel and stood at the entrance. At that point, the entire crowd went wild.
The ceremony had stopped. Everyone was whispering and had turned around to the entrance to see the dog. Some people thought it was cute. Some wanted to shoe it away.
What was clear, though, was that it could pose a threat. Stray dogs can carry diseases or can even be aggressive. So it was definitely a tricky situation and clearly not something you want as part of your wedding ceremony.
The groom was restless, and the bride was worried about what was going to happen. None of them was prepared for this kind of scenario.
Mark approached the stray dog to try to figure out what it wanted. But when he got closer, the most amazing thing happened. Everyone was in awe. And the bride was in tears.
As Mark reached the dog, he petted him a little, and realizing it was not a threat, he decided to just let the animal be and continue the ceremony.
The dog had just wandered off randomly and ended up crashing the couple’s wedding. He was calm and waited patiently for the ceremony to end as if he had a surprise ready for the newlyweds.
When the ceremony came to a close, the couple officially wed, and the sweet stray dog became excited. As Mark and Ana went to exit the chapel, the pup was there to greet them.
The newlyweds were touched. But, mixed with what felt like good wishes from the random dog was another message from the heart. And that made the couple make a decision that would change their lives forever.
When the dog greeted the couple at the end was as if it asked them to take him home. That’s how Ana had felt, at least.
At that moment, Mark and Ana decided to adopt the dog, thus adding a third to the union they had just formed together. Turns out, it would be the pup’s big day, too.
After they welcomed the dog into their home, the couple named him Marlo. He was the happiest pooch ever, but there was still something the newlyweds had to do.
Mark took the dog to the vet and found out he had a difficult past. The animal had scars and signs of abuse, but despite everything he’d been through, he still believed in the goodness of people. And the credit for that probably goes to Mark and Ana’s beautiful gesture.
When the couple shared their wedding photos on social media, they quickly went viral, and it wasn’t thanks to the lovely ceremony.
People loved the story of how Marlo ended up adopted and his incredible antics. The way he crashed the couple’s wedding was both funny and heart-warming.
