“We really are best friends, on and off the screen. I know I can always count on Prince Michael to put a smile on my face when I’m down or be my wingman when I’m up,” Benitez shared.
So when it came time for Benitez to get married, he knew Prince Michael had to be involved, and so Prince Michael received the honour of best man. “When we looked for venues, allowing cats was the main priority,” the cat owner told PEOPLE. “When we picked a caterer, we made sure they could make salmon (Michael’s fave). And when we booked a DJ, we made sure he wouldn’t play ‘Who Let the Dogs Out’.”
“He actually did a ton throughout the day. Aside from strutting down the aisle, his biggest role was keeping the party going well into the night. As a groomsman, he kept everyone in the wedding party entertained and energetic,” Benitez said.
Prince Michael attended the event in his own custom-made suit created by a “special tailor” and took part in plenty of wedding photos.
“They all loved it!” Benitez said of his friends’ and family’s reactions to Prince Michael’s presence. “I mean, who doesn’t want their pet at their wedding?”
The trend of including your pet in your wedding might has gone viral! However, we do not recommend including your pets in the big day unless they are relaxed in new situations, so that both of you can enjoy the big day!
