PRESS RELEASE FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: The JUST HAPPY HOUNDS 1st Anniversary and Double Wedding Celebration!
Birmingham, AL– Saturday, June 13, 2015 was a most memorable day for the Just Happy Hounds staff and clientele.
Three events in one were celebrated including the dog wedding ceremony of Buttercup, the daughter of Carol Marietta, is a rescue dog from the GREATER BIRMINGHAM HUMANE SOCIETY and QUEEN OF BIRMINGHAM’S DO DAH DAY PARADE 2015 who married Frankie G., the son of Tammy Bernard and rescue from Chattanooga, Tennessee. Frankie currently serves as the Greeter and Chief Security Officer at JUST HAPPY HOUNDS-MIDTOWN.
Immediately following the nuptials of Buttercup and Frankie: Bride, Sarah Mills, the General Manager of JUST HAPPY HOUNDS and Jeff Mills of Office Insights were married. Sarah and Jeff made the decision to get married at a doggie daycare because dogs were such a part of their lives and frankly, there was no other place that would allow them to have so many dogs to join in their wedding celebration.
The Bride was given away by Ravin Mooney and Kayla Baugh. Tammy Bernard with Cheetos Williams was Maid of Honor. Joel Mills and Rowdy Mills were the Best Man and Best Dog. Serving as Bridesmaids were Fran Elmore with Baker, Beth Brooks with Luna, who is a Greyhound Rescue, and Lisa Jones with Hallie Riggins. Groomsmen included Richard Franklin, Jamie Hudson and Eric Casey. Ring Bearer was C. W. Mooney with Masin Mooney and Cash Belcher. The Flower Girl was Joleigh Baugh with Cody and Scarlett Hopkins.
Following the ceremonies, over 100 wedding guests and Just Happy Hounds celebrated the two marriages and the first anniversary of Just Happy Hounds – Midtown.
“When JHH general manager Sarah Mills first brought me the idea for this event, I must admit that I was somewhat skeptical of the plan, but she convinced me to give it a go, and boy am I glad we did! Never did I think that our Just Happy Hounds facility would ever host a wedding (or two), but it did. Never did I think that the staff could transform JHH into such a beautiful wedding venue, but they did.
Never did I think that two of our training and daycare canines- Bride Buttercup, and Groom Frankie G. would conduct themselves so well throughout the ceremony, but they did. And, never did I think that we would have over 100 guests present to help us celebrate the weddings, and our Just Happy Hounds First Year Anniversary, but attend, and celebrate, they did!
Thanks to Tammy Bernard, and Whole Foods for the beautiful wedding cakes! Thanks to Chad Alexander Productions for the beautiful wedding and dance music. Thanks to Courtney and Tommy Williams, of WorkPlay for lending us those extra tables, chairs, and tents. And thanks to our client and friend, Judge Stephen C Wallace for presiding over Sarah and Jeff Mills wedding.
Thanks to all for making this event such a howling success!” Charlie Hopkins-JHH CEO
“I was overwhelmed with people who came and showered us with love. I had no idea when I came to work at Just Happy Hounds as the General Manager that I would not only make friends, but gain family with all of our clients and staff. The dogs were so well behaved and when Judge Wallace introduced Jeff and I as Mr. and Mrs., Frankie G came right over to me while Hallie Riggs, the Aussie, barked as if to say congratulations. I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding and the venue at Just Happy Hounds was wonderful!” said Bride Sarah Mills.
Sarah and Jeff are spending their honeymoon at the beach while Buttercup and Frankie G. honeymoon and spend the majority of their days together at JUST HAPPY HOUNDS.
