What happens when two equestrians get married? The ultimate horsey dream wedding, of course, complete with decorated barn aisle, pony flower girl, and yes, that’s the bride getting ready in the feed room.
Kaley Cuoco and Karl Cook have been crossover darlings from the celebrity world (thanks to Kaley’s role as Penny in The Big Bang Theory) into the equestrian world (thanks to Karl Cook’s professional show jumping career, plus Cuoco’s active amateur competitive career). We’ve followed Cuoco’s riding adventures for years here on Horse Nation, and we always love to horseback riding get a little star-power push.
But the #KCsquared wedding (yep, that’s their official hashtag) on Saturday just might take the blue ribbon for ultimate horse-lover life experiences — Cuoco and Cook tied the knot in what appeared to be a picture-perfect ceremony with plenty of equestrian touches.
Such as, you know, the barn.
And yeah, that wasn’t just a showpiece barn all gussied up just for special occasions — there were, in fact, real live horses on scene.
Isn’t it comforting to know that all equestrians everywhere are totally okay with eating in the barn? (Tap the arrow to the right to view more photos, including the luxurious giant feather/flower horse shoe-turned-upside-down-arch.)
The quintessential pony-turned-flower-girl was a big hit:
And a quick surf of the #KCsquared hashtag reveals that plenty of equestrians were among the guest list along with friends, family and celebrities.
Of all of the star-studded moments of the day, however, our favorite one is probably this: Kaley Cuoco using the barn’s feed room for a few last-minute primping details. Once a horse girl, always a horse girl.
Kaley and Karl, we wish you all the best. You’re our favorite equestrian power couple.
