Couple uses puppy bouquets instead of flowers on their wedding day

For most couples about to tie the knot, flowers are an important part of the day, but one couple is putting puppies in their place.

Instead, Kathryn and Brad Ziemer used rescue puppies for their professional photos-- in place of the flowers.

They couple was married at Rush Creek Golf Club in Maple Grove.

Kathryn and Brad support Second-hand Hounds in Eden Prairie, which is an organization that rescues dogs from high kill shelters.
