Calvin and Kiwi may have stolen the show and were the reason their wedding went viral, but the Northrops know that their goldens deserve all the love from around the world.

Calvin, a therapy dog, has not only brightened the days of hospital patients but also helped Jessica through difficult times.

Jessica considers Calvin as “a once in a lifetime dog… more than a dog or a pet.” This is why one of her favorite wedding photos is the one where he wears a sign that says, “I loved her first.”

“It really captured our whole story,” she added. “He is my friend and my teammate. I tell everyone that he is a part of my soul that I didn’t know I was missing. I will forever be grateful to Calvin for saving me and for giving me the confidence to eventually find my true soulmate, Will.”

Jessica said that she wanted Calvin to carry the rings in a basket, so they practiced diligently every night.

The couple also helped Kiwi, who has social anxiety, build up her confidence in the days leading to their special day.
