Kelly O’Connell could never imagine her wedding day without her best friend and a companion for 15 years, her Black Lab named Charlie Bear. Unfortunately, not long before the happiest day of her life Charlie was diagnosed with brain tumor and his health started deteriorating rapidly.
On September 1st Kelly was preparing to marry the man of her dreams but at the same time she knew she may be saying the final good-bye to her dog. Photographer Jen Dziuvenis snapped the touching photo of the bride carrying Charlie Bear down the Aisle capturing the bitter sweet moment perfectly.
Charlie Bear crossed the rainbow bridge only 8 days later. May he rest in doggy heaven.
