When it came time to plan their NYC wedding, Kelly Respess and Paul Kercheval knew that there was one thing that wasn’t going to be a part of their special day—a horse-drawn carriage ride. In fact, they decided to take the opportunity to educate other lovebirds about how unromantic it is to be hauled around Central Park by a tired, abused horse.
Everything from the cake to the decoration said “neigh” to horse abuse, and leaflets describing horse-drawn carriage horrors were distributed to wedding guests as well as to tourists and reporters.
When the ceremony was over, the happy couple rode off in a classic, classy convertible.
