Any other of your wedding vendor(s) you’d like to call out? They weren’t a wedding vendor per se, but we did have to send our dogs somewhere that could be trusted so we could focus on the day and our honeymoon without worrying about their well-being. Dogwoods Resort is where they went, that place is FANTASTIC! They treat the dogs well, they aren’t cooped up in any type of cage, and best of all – they come home tired and happy.
