Here adorable kittens replaced the cocktails in a wedding of Iz and Colleen Kimseylove. The couple ditched the cocktails at their wedding for the lovely kittens. Guests were having fun with the kittens while they waited for the bride and groom to take family photos. There was no hurry for the reception to start, because the kittens were there to entertain. The newly wed couple from Washington state, are cat lovers and are having two senior special needs cats. While planning their wedding they decided to make their wedding special by adding the charm of cats in it. Unfortunately, their own cats could not participate in this celebration.
The couple contacted a local shelter in Seattle to know if there could be some social kittens for Kitten Hour at their wedding. With a tight budget, they removed the cocktail hour. The couple wanted to do something different for their guests. “We love our cats very much, and wanted to bring a little of their spirit to the celebration,” Colleen told that Seattle Animal Shelter provided six friendly and social kittens for the wedding. The kittens were friendly and attractive. The couple made sure the kittens were enjoying the cuddling and not bored. Staff from the shelter accompanied the kittens to make them comfortable and happy.
“The little dudes at our wedding were selected for being especially social, there were volunteers making sure they were handled safely and not overstimulated, and they left after about an hour,” stated the couple. The couple made a donation to the shelter before the event and asked their guests to do the same thing as a wedding gift. “When else are you going to be able to summon kittens for your pleasure, and make a donation to a great organization?” Colleen said. All of these kittens were available for adoption. Kitten Hour that was well planned, was successful and the wedding ends perfectly. “Guests loved the kittens, and lots of people told us that every wedding should have a mandatory kitten hour,” Colleen said. Look at the happy faces!
The kittens from the wedding were adopted into loving homes. The couple was also attracted by the adorable faces and soft fluffy kittens, but they could not adopt anyone because their cats would not approve. They also advocate adopting adult cats because they are just as adorable and love to cuddle. “I’d encourage anyone looking to adopt a cat to look at the grown-ups first for calmer, and just and adorable companionship,” they said. What a beautiful change in wedding plan!
