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.

At the center of this painting, there is a group of people arranged in a trianuglar shape. The figures are all dressed in colorful clothing, some of them are holding refreshments. At the bottom of the painting are two colorful roosters fighting. The figures get smaller as they recede into the background, though there is not a realistic spacial lanscape in which they stand. The background has a light rondel emanating from behind the figures and the rest is an aqua-blue. The painting is signed (u.r.) in red paint "Franck / Robuste".
