A bride in Iowa decided to carry puppies down the aisle instead of the traditional bouquet. She did this all for a very specific reason!

Most people carry flowers down the aisle, but for Samantha Clark that was not an option. This Mason City, Iowa girl had herself and all her bridesmaids carry puppies from AHeinz57 pet rescue on her big day. This proved to be a powerful choice, because there is currently a flood of demand to adopt from this shelter. What a great way to raise awareness, and help find happy homes for so many animals!
