Better luck next royal wedding, Kate and Meghan: there’s a new blushing bride in town, and her name is Izzy. Better known by her Instagram handle @IzzytheFrenchie, this frequently Dior-clad diva has recently become affianced to none other than Filmore Dean, the bad-boy heir to the Goldberg fortune. That’s right—Whoopi Goldberg’s granddog is taking a bride at last, and GARAGE has all the details.
Knowing Goldberg’s flair for fashion, this wedding will have a guest list that rivals the front row of a Louis Vuitton show. (Maybe Choupette Lagerfeld will even make an appearance, provided she can get over the age-old cat v. dog schism.)
The bride is no gold-digger. Don’t accuse Izzy the Frenchie of marrying for money—this canine celebrity hails from the Hamptons and has amassed fame and fortune all on her own, posing for Vogue and serving as a luxury brand ambassador for the Plaza Hotel since 2018
The groom is an affable bro. “Born in Florida and raised in Cali! I’m a sunshine dog, I ♥️2 play with my bro Nino... Sleep. I ♥️ 2 run...Sleep. I ♥️ meals...Sleep, ♥️my fam!Sleep!,” reads Filmore’s Instagram bio, and his profile paints an according picture of a laid-back Frenchie who loves the aforementioned sleep, as well as lusting after human food and rocking Adidas.
We have Hillary Clinton to thank for this union. Izzy’s owner, Rick Hendrix, told TMZ he met Goldberg while working on the Clinton campaign, which was at least successful in boosting the dog marriage rate.
Photographer Timothy White will capture the event. If you’re not getting a RISD-schooled shutterbug who’s snapped everyone from Brad Pitt to Julia Roberts to photograph your dog’s wedding, did it even really happen?
The wedding is coming up. The canine nuptials will take place on Saturday, the 26th of January, 2019, at “half past five o’clock in the evening,” according to the Instagrammed invitation. Does this mean we’re...invited?
The ceremony will be private. With a reception to follow at Goldberg’s New York home, natch. Mazel, dogs!
