We had two beautiful horses at our reception - un-expectantly! We married in our country church, and had the reception under a huge stone pavillion on a lake at the county park. During the meal, two Mounted Rangers came by on chestnut arabians and they provided such a lovely special touch. Music by Enya was playing during that time as well... I was thrilled :)

My friend simply booked a sunset trail ride in Vegas with a dude string that had a minister and rented a wedding dress while there. They had a lovely ride and were married on horseback. The photos are very nice. However she did not have a lot of family so it was just her and her hubby. They had one reception was a month later at a Backcountry Horsemens Assc. meeting.

I didn't have my horse yet when I got married, but if I had, I definitely would have at least wanted to do an engagement photo shoot with him. He's cremello with a long mane and tail... it's like he was born to be a wedding horse

I'm getting married in June. We are running off to Vegas (Elvis will be officiating the ceremony ) so no horses at the actual wedding.

We will be having a photo session at the farm a few weeks after the wedding though. I will be wearing my dress, then husband will be wearing his tux, and we will get photos with our horses and our dogs. This way we can get the photos we want without being rushed or nervous. We will have more time so if the animals aren't cooperative we can work through it!

ETA: Also, it gives me an excuse to wear my dress again!

I'm currently working with my mare to walk next to my husbands Harley (yes motorcycle). We got married at the court house, but now we are actually planning a small ceremony/reception. The bike and horse will be waiting behind the alter and we want to "ride off in the sunset" lol (just for pictures though) My mare does amazing with the dirt bike so we are gonna try it with the Harley soon, which she is already use to, just not sure about walking next to it when it moves lol she walks side by side with the dirt bikes though. She is also already use to things flapping around on her back (The lessons kids like to dress her and themselves up and her favorite game is with the tarp, so the dress won't be an issue (Of course well be testing this with old prom dresses). I'm very excited and can't wait til August.

That's what I'm hoping :) I'm an amateur photographer (basically just a hobby) and from a photographers point of view I think it will be a fun shoot with lots of creativity :) We are mixing traditional white with biker leather lol sounds awful but its actually a pretty mix :)
