Photographer captures moment service dog calms bride down before vows

( - A wedding photographer captured the touching moment when a service dog dressed in a pink tutu calmed a bride just moments before she walked down the aisle.

Valerie and Andrew Parrot, who married on Jan. 9 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, were accompanied by their service dog Bella during the ceremony, Fox 25 reported. Bella helps Valerie deal with migraines and panic attacks, and even helped walk her down the aisle at the wedding.

However, before the two ventured down the aisle to meet Andrew, photographer Maddie Peschong of Mad Photo and Design photographed Bella alerting Valerie that her heart rate was elevated by snuggling into her side to calm her down.

Peschong captioned the photo “One of the cutest little wedding guests there ever was!”
