    Default Guess Who Was the Star of This Wedding?

    The video shows how she got him ready for the big day.

    Which makes this a good contrast:

    Actually, the first video made me a little uncomfortable because the groom seemed like such a Third Wheel. The horse was certainly well behaved.

    Agree.

    I love how in the second video, it's clearly the clapping that sets the horse off (and yay cowboy for hanging onto that beast!), so what do the watchers do when they get horse under control again... start clapping. People, I tell you!

    OTOH, I wonder if Willow could be convinced to do something like that? If I didn't pay $$ to get my dress preserved, it would make a fun photo shoot.

    On the second video, I had the feeling that the handlers had put some time and training into getting the horse used to the dress, but they simply didn't anticipate the Audience Factor. Oops!

    I did this photo shoot after my wedding. It was a blast! I'm so glad I did it. There is no way I would do it on the day of. There is too much that could go so very wrong!

    Look again, the people behind the table moved it forward into the horse's legs, then he took off.

    I agree about the 1st video and the groom. Real good thing that horse didn't freak like the one in the 2nd video. That would have been a true "runaway bride" situation!

    I think it's nice but I think it would be nicer to have the groom on a horse too?? I feel like he was really left out and she was marrying the horse.

    I'd marry my horse over anyone I've dated so far.

    Me too. I one step ahead at least I have a he. But they don't talk back. And some how I don't mind as much picking up after them.

    It was a very sweet video, and the bride looked so sweet and happy. I love that she did her proper preparation. But I did think the minister was going to pronounce them horse and wife.
