The two pups have always been considered girlfriend and boyfriend at the hospital, so staff thought it was finally time for them to tie the knot.

Donning a white wedding gown and vail, Hope married Hunter, who was wearing a tuxedo and collar. The ceremony took place in Lisa Barth Chapel in front of staff and several children patients.

Jake Jaconson performed the ceremony and started out by saying: “Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to celebrate Hope and Hunter. Before these witnesses, Hunter takes Hope to be his lawfully wedded doggie bride; they bow-vow to love each other, share their banana and peanut butter together, today, tomorrow and forever.”
