Nearly 70 guests, a two-tiered bone-shaped cake with a pink heart and the Pastor announcing "We are gathered here to celebrate the joining of the paws of Bobbie and Gracie on this beautiful Sunday," if you are wondering that doesn't sound like a regular wedding ceremony you are right, because the 700 pound event in Michigan, was to solemnise in holy matrimony two pet pooches.

Two-year-old Bobby married Gracie, who's three, in their hometown of Clinton Township, Michigan, reports the Detroit Free Press.

Susan Laurer, 79, the owner of the groom, gave Bobby away to Gracie's owners, neighbours Frank and Cyndi Parise.

"Bobby loved Gracie at first sight. Now they play together, walk together and fight together,” she was quoted by Ananova, as saying.

Bobby wore a top hat, black tuxedo and red bowtie, while Gracie, her nails painted pink, sauntered down the aisle in a puffy white gown.

"Now I introduce to you, Mr and Mrs Bobby and Gracie Laurer." after some brief remarks, Pastor DeRose announced.
