Horsin’ Around – Wedding

I can’t help but post just a few more images from the July 17th wedding (located near Bezanson). I really enjoyed myself and being around such warm and fun-loving people must have been part of the reason for that. Sandy & Travis live on a lovely acreage and I love that they also included horses in their ceremony. As all the guests arrived, there was a pair of draught horses hitched to a large and comfy wagon to transport people from the vehicle parking area up to the ceremony location. Once one wagon full of guests was delivered to the ceremony site, the horse drawn wagon headed back to pick up another group of people.

The bride arrived by a lovely horse drawn carriage and, after the ceremony, the bride and groom were taken back to the receiving line area in that same well appointed horse drawn carriage. The Patterson’s horses were beautifully groomed, their tails plaited with flowers coordinating with the wedding colours, and also had hearts (in the wedding colours) applied to their barrels (that’s the side of a horse). Here are a couple images of the bride and groom as they were being driven away from the ceremony site to the receiving line area.

And this one I added a vintage touch, especially because it reminds me of riding off into their new life together as husband and wife (instead of riding off into the sunset :)).

If you have followed the previous posts of this wedding, you’ll know that this couple and their friends and family are definitely a fun-loving bunch. See!


Photographs Never Forget! … keeping memories alive with custom albums and portraits. (I’m looking forward to putting the album together for this fun and loving couple!)

There couldn’t be a more perfect wedding for you to shoot Diane! Horses in the countryside! Great work as always! ๐Ÿ™‚

A fine series Diane. What a great group of people to shoot in a wedding setting!
You got some prime shots. Love the black and white one too. That jump off the ground took a wedding for everyone to get that levitated! ๐Ÿ™‚ Nice shooting!

Beautiful images again … I wish I had you as a photographer on my wedding some years ago, but I have doubts that it would be possible, you in the US and me in Europe (Belgium). But if I have someone that’s looking for a photographer, I know who I should mention.

That last photo is an absolute joy. Just imagine looking back at that image in 25 years time – magic!

Love the horses’ bottoms too.

What a magical wedding scene and setting. Can’t get much better than this!

Wonderful photos, Diane. I’d like to see your b&w as a sepia version – that would really fit with the old time feel of the horse drawn carriage. It’s just me, but why do people jump? I don’t get that. It’s a fun photo, don’t get me wrong. When my son got married he told the photographer beforehand that there will be no jumping photos and then she insisted that day that they jump. He was not happy.

You are clearly in your element here, Diane. I can see why people choose you! ๐Ÿ™‚ I especially like the dog who got in on the fun.

Lovely images Diane, I can tell you all enjoyed yourselves.

I enjoy your vintage processing of the horse and carriage going across the field. Nice!
