We had another beautiful wedding for friends in our barn today. It was an evening event and though it was quite warm, it was a wonderful afternoon and evening for an outside ceremony.
The wedding was quite unique, in that the bride and her father rode to the ceremony on horseback and the flower-girl was leading another horse ahead of them. The horses were decorated in the wedding colors, and the flower-girl’s horse even had sparkly flowers throughout her mane. After the wedding, the bride and groom rode once around our pond – and a “just married” sign was pinned to the wrapping of the horse’s tail 🙂
We had offered the use of our barn and did not have to do much else – other than that Jeff had volunteered to make chicken corn soup. He and Caleb, the bride’s brother, made over 10 gallons of very delicious soup the day before. The other food was prepared by the bride’s family, including the wedding cake (which the bride had decorated herself).
The ceremony took place by the pond, the dinner afterwards was in the barn. The bridesmaids, flower girl and “mini-bride” all got dressed in our dining room. It was a lot of fun to watch the girls get ready.
Everything went off without any hitch – it was a lovely wedding and everyone seemed to have had a great time.
Hopefully we’ll have more pictures to post soon.
