A wedding party on horseback—led by the bride in white with a veil, and the groom in a cowboy hat—leaves a village while a crowd watches. Each of the horses is a different color, including red, gray, and different shades of brown. The people are dressed in bright, solid-colored clothes. Some wear brimmed hats. The village, consisting of a few houses and fields of green plants, palm trees, and trees with large purple and pink leaves, surrounds the wedding party on three sides. There is a clear blue sky overhead.

This oil pastel drawing has a thick black border drawn around the entire scene, with a slightly thinner brown border inside. In the center of the scene is a red building with three horizontal yellow stripes on the roof and a brown door with the word "Pepper" written in yellow above the door. There is a white fence on either side of the building. A dog drawn in beige and brown is in front of the building to the right, floating slightly above the ground. The ground and the sky in the background are both colored blue, with darker "s" shapes throughout.
