When animal lovers Dominic Husson and Louise Véronneau made their wedding plans, they knew exactly how they wanted to celebrate their big day: with over 1,000 cats!

Back in 2012, Louise Véronneau visited The Cat House on the Kings, a sanctuary established by Lynea Lattanzio in Parlier, California, and it certainly left a lasting impression. The 12-acre, no-cage and no-kill sanctuary, with its rolling hills and roaming cats, was the perfect, blissful place for the couple to perform their nuptials.

From Canada, the pair met 3 years ago in Montreal, Quebec and found common ground in their love for animals, particularly cats. “We are both animal lovers. She’s a great person, and that’s why I wanted to marry her,” Husson said in a story by KSEE24 News.

“One white kitty even followed the bride as she walked from the Senior House down to the bench by the river where they were married,” Harvie Schreiber of the Cat House of the Kings, told Love Meow.

“During the ceremony, the kitties either watched, or were busily rubbing up against legs for attention – Lynea’s legs, the bride and groom’s legs, their photographer’s legs, the cameramen’s legs, staff legs, etc! They always want to be part of what’s going on. They are curious and nosy!” Schreiber recalled in the Love Meow story. “Many people have music for their wedding. In this case, it was the peaceful sound of wind in the trees, the sound of water flowing down the Kings River, and the wonderful ‘music’ of kitty purrs!”

These newlyweds certainly made their wedding day one to remember! Wouldn’t it have been awesome to be a guest at this wedding?!
