“We are not actors or actresses so it was really hard to stay in character," Jones said. "The shoot in general was a piece of cake. We just had fun doing it."

Instead of using Dalmatians, the photos feature their family’s dogs, Mookie and Izabelle.

Jones said since it was her idea to do the “101 Dalmatians” shoot, Collier requested they have another photo shoot with a “Rocky” theme.

The couple plans to incorporate more Disney elements into their June 10 wedding, but they aren't yet sure which movies they will choose. For now, Jones is planning their wedding shower with a theme based on the Disney film "Mirror Mirror."
