It’s not surprising that the bride and groom will be the center of attention at the wedding. Visitors, however, often overshadow the hosts and steal the show. Especially visitors who didn’t knock on your door. A stray dog came to greet the newlyweds, Brazilians Tamiris Muzini and Douglas Vieira Robert, on their wedding day, much to their delight.

This cute little animal stole the show at the wedding and won the hearts of the newlyweds. Some days after the wedding, the couple adopted a puppy who would later be named Braiá Caramelo de Jesus. Scroll below to see interesting pictures of them

Tamiris Muzini and Douglas Vieira Robert are a lovely Brazilian couple who just tied the knot

Even though their wedding day was already special, it became even more memorable when a stray dog showed up to greet them

The dog came to the church and sat right at the door while waiting for the wedding to be over.

Huandra, a wedding planner and animal rights activist, spoke with Bored Panda to further the nuptials.

The bride-to-be shared that the dog showed up and sat at the church door just as she was lining up the gentlemen. Huandra and the other groomsmen all thought it was a sweet moment. Unfortunately, it couldn’t stay in that spot if the bride and groom wanted to enter. However, they were taken aback when the dog followed the bride to the car she was in and didn’t leave her side until she departed.

No one was able to move the dog away from the entrance

Tamiris couldn’t believe the dog had followed her all the way to the chapel. Although the dog was invited inside the church with the bride, it remained outside, where it lay until the end of the ceremony.

Huandra said that after several failed attempts to get the dog out of the building, they gave in to the dog’s wish to stay and let him stay.

The bride and groom and the whole church loved having the dog there, and the dog didn’t want to let go of the couple.

Huandra observed that the dog was limping slightly due to an injured paw. He stood up to meet the bride and groom, something he had never done before. The bride then turned to me and said, “I want to adopt him; he’s fantastic.” But there was nothing I could do because I had a contract to fulfill and everybody had already left to enjoy the wedding festivities. We fell hopelessly in adoration with the puppy. 
A few videos of the dog were uploaded by Huandra to the NGO’s page. The photos rapidly went viral, prompting many to speculate that the dog was homeless. The dog obviously had no human family.

The couple kept thinking about the dog, so they decided to take him in. They named him Braiá Caramelo de Jesu s

Right after the wedding, the couple told me they couldn’t stop thinking about the dog and how much they wanted to adopt him. They had a busy day of searching for him the day after the wedding but had no luck finding him.

With this need in mind, I posted a photo of him to the NGO’s page, along with a plea for information about the dog’s whereabouts. A follower of mine sent me a message with photographs six hours later. There was a dog in a coffee shop, and I recognized him right away. Before the couple proceeded to the spot to catch it, I requested a follower named Joyce to hold it.

They took him to the vet to heal his broken paw and get some medicine

Caramelo is patiently waiting at the bride’s mother’s house for the couple to return from their honeymoon.
