A Wedding on Horseback on the Beach for Wendy & Lori

horseback wedding on the beach

Although I wasn’t at this wedding in person, I can tell you I love absolutely everything about Lori and Wendy’s elopement. I love the intimacy of just the two of them and their son. I love their matching outfits–and the coordinating one for Jaden. And check out the sneakers. I love that they got married in jeans…on the beach…on horseback.

And I especially love the beautiful ring box they made for the occasion.

When Wendy contacted me, I knew she and Lori were a perfect fit for what we offer. They wanted simplicity, intimacy, a beautiful backdrop. “Just the three of us,” Wendy said.

The horses came later–after they saw a picture I sent them of a previous horseback wedding on the beach that we’d coordinated. Being horse lovers themselves, they thought this was the ultimate icing on the cake for the type of wedding they were seeking.

After the ceremony, Wendy and Lori (temporarily!) left the horses in the hands of their handler while they took a romantic stroll on the beach.
