When Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton said “I do” at the Don Strange Ranch in Texas, they did so in front of many of their loved ones. And for this country duo, that means their dogs were right there, too.
The location was selected with the couple’s pets in mind. “[Miranda] wanted a place where everybody would be comfortable, would have a great time, just feel at home and her dogs could be a part of it,” Kathy Best, Lambert’s publicist and wedding planner, tells PEOPLE.
Three of Lambert and Shelton’s dogs even participated in the ceremony. The girls – Cher the Chihuahua, Delta the Chihuahua-pug mix, and Delilah the terrier mix – got to walk down the aisle with Lambert’s eighth bridesmaid.
