Each week, we feature a couple from our latest issue.

Meagan and Andrew’s wedding was a long time in the making. Though the two met as undergraduates at Ohio State University, it wasn’t until seven years later—when they were both in veterinary school—that they began dating. But this week, the happy couple celebrated their second wedding anniversary.

Like most, Meagan and Andrew Sowders’ wedding was full of personality. For the veterinarian power-duo, many of those special touches were dedicated to their whole family, which included their two dogs. “Those dogs are a huge part of our life and mean so much to both of us,” says Meagan.

In the guests’ hotel bags, the Sowders included cookies decorated like their two Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. And, on their thumbprint-tree version of a guest book, the couple had their dogs drawn at the bottom.
