Vintage snack: A visually impaired bride's best friend #Wedding Porn#disability#vintage weddings#wedding dogs July 5 2012 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photo courtesy of Guiding Eyes for the Blind This photo of a young couple and the bride's gorgeous German Shepard guide dog was taken in the 1960s. The dog came from Guiding Eyes for the Blind, who has been providing trained service dogs to the visually impaired for nearly 60 years. Side note: those bell sleeves on the bride are fantastic. We were alerted to this fab shot by one of our readers and contributors, Tribesmaid Snarkbat, who wrote about her experiences as an awesome cane-wielding blind bride. Check out her "Steamcane!"

Can we also please talk about how fabulous that lady in the animal print coat is? 12 agree Reply Are there flowers on the dog's harness? There are flowers! Purely adorable! 11 agree Reply One of my uncles sent me this right after the wedding. I'd been looking for blind brides to ogle for months – this picture made me SO happy! 4 agree Reply My father is blind but didn't have his dog at his wedding. I really wish he would have. Think of the adorable pictures. I have a few pics of his dogs in bow ties at various events, and they are adorable. I am planning some great pics of his current dog, Skipper, at my wedding. Skipper is a black lab, so I'm thinking about a red bow tie. 5 agree Reply 60's Offbeatniks! 3 agree Reply I love everything about this picture!
