PETS ARE FAMILY
And we seek to provide a level of care for them as if they were our own. Thank you for trusting us with your furry family member!
MEET OUR TEAM
Hi! My name is Nicole!
Hi there! I’m Nicole, Founder of WedPets. I’m so happy you’re here. I’d love to tell you a little bit about myself, my family, and how WedPets was born.
When my husband and I tied the knot in August of 2017, we wanted our German Shepherd, Greta, to be in our wedding photos. We faced some challenges, but we made it happen. I soon realized couples like us need a wedding day pet concierge service! And so, a few months later, I made it happen.
My husband, Dane, is my biggest supporter and loves dogs as much as I do. We have fostered a couple pregnant mamas and their litters and have transitioned multiple pups into their forever homes.
We had a little baby of our own, Lane, who is now 3 and has an animal-loving personality - which is balm to my heart.
WedPets is founded on the belief that pets are family, and it is my honor to help other couples who believe that too.
Hi! I'm Erin!
I am a Lead Handler for WedPets. I have been honored to be part of over 80 WedPets events and a member of the team since June 2019.
I am the mom to our little rescue mutt Peanut as well as our foster fail Casey, a Parson Terrier/Beagle mix. Plus, two rescue tortoises! Charlie, a 200-pound Sulcata tortoise, and Hermione, a Russian tortoise who I adopted in middle school. When I am not with pets I enjoy traveling with my husband Nick, gardening, practicing yoga, and reading. I am originally from Iowa but I have called St. Louis my home since 2013.
After leaving my full-time position in marketing at a local pet care facility, I started my own pet photography business, STL PET PICS. My comprehensive animal care experience is rooted in the Fear Free Method, providing me with tools to handle pups of any size or temperament. As a past wedding coordinator, I am here to help make your wedding day dreams come true as well as pamper your pup the same way you would!
I’m Andrea and am a St. Louis native and a die-hard animal lover. I’m a mom of four large-breed dogs, two cats, several chickens, and I can truly say that I’ve seen (and cleaned!) it all.
My animal care background is rooted in shelter work, so I have extensive handling experience across a multitude of behaviors and am extremely comfortable with strong pullers, reactive dogs, and dogs with fear/anxiety based challenges. My full time job is in market research, but I combined my love of dogs + nature and created my very own canine hiking service!
You’ll rarely find me out and about without a leash in hand, and I look forward to meeting you and your furry loves for your big day!
Last year, in the heat of “wedding season,” I joined our team. I’m a well-known and active pet photographer in the St. Louis pet community. She has a heart for animal welfare and advocacy. We are delighted to share more about Sherry so you can get to know her better!
I was born in the Philippines but grew up in St. Louis. I’m a dog mom to two fluff balls — Harvey Specter a spoiled rotten samoyed and Effie Trinket a chow mix and part baby bear (maybe).
When I’m not chauffeuring your WedPets pups, I am a professional dog photographer capturing all the sweet and silly moments of pawrents with their fur babies and photo assists for another awesome dog photographer in town! You may already know me as I'm the photographer behind @therealhousedogsofstlouis!
I love everything about dogs — the way they move, their unique quirkiness, their unconditional love for their humans, their playfulness, messiness, craziness and spontaneity! On wedding days, I’ll combine both my pet photography handling skills and wedding production day experiences to make sure your pet is loved and part of your special day.
Hi, I’m Lauren and I have been living the dog-filled life since I starting dogsitting for friends and family 15 years ago. Now I have three dogs of her own, Sophie the diva, Noelle the perfect one, and Primrose the life of the party. I’ve also been fostering for just under three years and have successfully fostered over 60 animals, only failing once, with my dog Primrose.
My career is in finance at Boeing but I spend my free time doing anything I can with my dogs- hiking, swimming, roller blading, photography, hanging out at Bar K. And now I’m excited to be a part of WedPets so I can spend time with your dogs too and help make your wedding day extra special!
I have loved dogs since I first laid eyes on them. Growing up, I would walk or hang out with the neighbor dogs before my parents caved and got a dog for the family. I currently have a coonhound mix named Jasper who is the sweetest man. Now I get to work with dogs everyday! I use Rover as a platform to walk and provide daycare, boarding, and house sitting.
This is how I first discovered WedPets. A client of mine informed me that a handler would be by to pick up her pup during his stay with me. Curious as to what this was all about, I did a deep dive into the company and immediately knew I had to be a part of it! The process is so simple and painless that I look forward to every meet and wedding.
Dogs have been my source of joy for as long as I can remember. I look forward to helping your special day run as smoothly as possible!
My name is Miranda and I am a WedPets Pet Handler. I have two dogs of my own – Gracie and Clark. As if they don’t keep me on my toes enough, I board dogs in my home for pet sitting and I have been fostering for Gateway Pet Guardians for over 3 years. I have fostered 80+ dogs (and counting). I also love volunteering my time at Gateway Pet Guardians doing their monthly drive-thru vaccination clinics, laundry at the shelter, walking dogs, and other online roles such as being the “Dog Matchmaker”.
I grew up in a small town just across the river in Illinois but have lived in St. Louis now for 15 years. I work full time as an accountant and in my spare time (ha!) I like to run, yes for fun,and train at the gym. When I get time to myself, you can usually find me out and about somewhere around St. Louis or at a Cardinals game. I cannot wait to meet and spend time with your fur-child and be a part of your special day!
