This Couple Traveled 3,000 Miles to Get Married at a Cat Sanctuary
When dreaming up an ideal destination wedding, places like Hawaii, Italy and maybe Mexico come to mind. Fresno, California? Not so much. However, for Canadian couple Louise Veronneau and Dominic Husson, it was at the top of their list for one major reason: It’s the location of The Cat House on the Kings, California’s largest no-cage, no-kill cat sanctuary and adoption center.
According to a recent report by NBC News, Louise and Dominic are both huge animal lovers and were drawn to this cat haven because they don’t have anything comparable in their country. Louise tells NBC News, “We wanted to do a wedding that reflects our values, our love for animals and also we’ve asked our relatives instead of giving us gifts to send a donation to the sanctuary.”
This was actually the first ever wedding held at The Cat House on the Kings (which is home to 1,100+ animals, BTW) and was officiated by the sanctuary’s founder Lynea Lattanzio. She admits she was reluctant at first, but came around to the idea after speaking with the couple. It’s probably a great thing that she eventually changed her mind, because we’re guessing a year-long wait list is in the very near future for this unconventional venue. Cat-gratulations to the newly meow-ied couple (sorry, couldn’t help myself!).
