For the past 3 years Valerie Parrot hasn't gone anywhere without her service dog Bella, and her wedding was no exception. Dressed in a darling tutu and pearls, Bella escorted Parrott down the aisle and stayed by her side throughout the ceremony, helping prevent panic attacks and anxiety.

When wedding photographer Maddie Peschong captured this touching moment between the bride and her best friend, no one had any idea the pic would go viral. "I think it's had such a positive effect because it captures such an amazing bond between a service dog and her handler," Parrott told USA Today. "Without Bella, my life wouldn't be the same, so it just made sense that she would be a part of mine and my husband's big day."
