This week, I talked with Myrna Swire, a wedding planner who got into the business after planning a $50,000 Bat Mitzvah.

Here’s a bit that hit the cutting room floor:

The bride and groom each had their own dogs — the bride had a female and the groom had a male. They wanted the dogs to get married with them. She wore pink — the dog, not the bride. And he wore a tuxedo bowtie. They were living together before the wedding. Were they forced into marriage? Yes. But they got along.
