See The Video Clips From I Do, Doggone It!

The honeymoon period may have ended for some of the dog couples who came together for a few fun moments on Saturday.

But for organizers of I Do, Doggone It!, our gratitude continues for the many who pitched in to make the event a success, from sponsors to volunteers to the many dog owners and citizens alike who squeezed into the downtown for the festive occasion.

If you've not yet seen it, the Chicago Tribune published two photos that veteran photographer Milbert Brown shot during the event. The shots are on Page 3 of Sunday's Metro section.

In addition, we encourage you to check out the interview with Guinness World Records' Danny Girton Jr. (below, in photo, counting the dog couples) on the post from Saturday.

In addition, you will find in this post links to seven other video clips from the big day:

Introduction from Downtown Oak Park's Pat Zubak-Part 1

Introduction from Downtown Oak Park's Pat Zubak-Part 2

Oak Park Village President David Pope's officiating of the Bow Vows

Danny Girton's announcement that the Guinness World Record had not been broken

An interview with Danny Girton before the ceremony

Sights and sounds of the event, about 20 minutes before the ceremony began with the Wedding March

Meet Mia, a 12-year-old teacup poodle who stole the show, and her owner Lucretia Meo of Berwyn

As soon as we have an official tally of same-sex couples out of the 87 couples overall, as well as the amount raised for the Animal Care League of Oak Park, we will post that information on this site.

As always, if you have any questions, contact Matt Baron at or 708-860-1380.

DO you know which template was used for the marriage certificates? I want to fill in the blanks but don't know which certificate template was used.
Thanks for all the video and photos.
