She should have written on the invitation "No Dogs Allowed."

Denver, Colorado police, are looking for a man accused of attacking a bride on her wedding day, and then sending his dog to attack her at the wedding ceremony.

A friend of Brittany Schult-Cortez and Jorge Cortez-Trinidad, attended their wedding reception at the home of a relative when he allegedly became angry and left because of the DJ.

The friend, Joel Nevaraz, 21, allegedly returned to the house around 12:30 a.m. with a dog, which according to Schult-Cortez, had been instructed to strike the bride.

"I tried to talk him down and walk him home," said Schult-Cortez. "He saw my husband jump the fence. He said, 'Sic your Skylo. Sic your Skylo,'" she said.

"Why would someone I consider to be my brother, do such a thing?" The 22-year-old bride asked.

Nevarez apparently has a history of mental illness.

Cortez-Trinidad, 21, told police he heard screaming and shouting outside, and when he went outside he saw his wife being dragged by her hair by the pit bull of the friend. Police said the dog is not a pit bull, and could not confirm its breed.

When Cortez-Trinidad tried to rip the dog away from his new wife, the dog apparently bit him three times in the thigh.

Nevaraz, who posted threatening messages on his Facebook page after the attack, was apparently laughing as Cortez-Schultz said he was bitten, and he struck her with brass knuckles.

While authorities continue to search for Nevaraz, Schult-Cortez remains concerned. She said that he wrote in a Facebook message that he was going to Boston, Massachusetts, to commit suicide.

Nevarez faces a felony charge of first-degree assault with a deadly weapon.
