eddings are about celebrat-
ing with loved ones: family,
friends and, in our case, our
dog, too," said Emily Fellows, a former
Bloomfield Hills resident of New York
She and husband Brandon Gorge,
originally from Franklin, enjoyed having
Hank the dog present at their June 29
nuptials, and other engaged couples are
embracing the idea, too.
Living in Los Angeles, "where a little
off-beat is perfectly the norm:' West
Bloomfield native Amy (Brodsky)
Borman said, "It wasn't even a question
of who my 'maid of honor' would be"
when she married Frank Borman, for-
merly of Birmingham.
She chose her black Labrador dog,
Wearing a custom-made flower neck-
lace, Lola "walked perfectly down the
aisle" at the Bormans' 2007 wedding,
she said. Rabbi Jennifer (then Tisdale)
Kaluzny of West Bloomfield's Temple
Israel officiated at the Hotel Bel-Air.
Two of the bride's little nieces,
Samantha Brodsky and Emily Siegel,
held on to Lola's satin dog leash — "but
once she saw her daddy [Frank] under
the chuppah — she took off for him,"
Borman said.
"Family and friends weren't really that

Lola with the bride and groom

surprised to have my dog there, know-
ing how I felt about Lola," she continued.
"Some were certainly concerned about
how she might behave. Afterward, most-
ly everyone thought it was fantastic!"
The temperament and behavior of a
pet dog are factors for an engaged couple
to consider before allowing it to join the
wedding. Dogs that are nervous around
crowds or too energetic are certain to
subtract from everyone's enjoyment.
That's what Joyce Torby of Farmington
Hills feared when the family dog was
featured prominently in the wedding
party of former Detroiters she saw get
married in South Carolina.
"Doggy was well-behaved and cute,"
said Torby, while noting she'd been "a
little apprehensive that the dog might
jump up on me and soil my dress with
his muddy paws. I was relieved to see
that he was crated during dinner."
Howard Fridson of Huntington Woods
said Bijou, "a beautiful and well-behaved
standard poodle," was a welcome addi-
tion when his now-London-based niece
married about two years ago in New
A bridesmaid walked down the aisle
holding the freshly manicured Bijou,
who is owned by former Detroiter Marty
Fridson of New York.
"The dog was there just for the cer-
emony at a restaurant. Someone was
hired to drive her back home," Howard
Fridson said.
