The BreyerFest Vive la France Wedding!


It's not every day you see a wedding in the Hall of Champions at the Kentucky Horse Park, especially during BreyerFest! On July 17, the first day of BreyerFest Vive la France, BreyerFest veteran and passionate collector, Shaun Basch married her longtime beau Roger Posthumus, whom she calls her best friend. The happy couple, along with collector friends and Breyer staff gathered in the Hall of Champions for a short and sweet ceremony, followed by BreyerFest festivities. While the ceremony was anything but traditional, for Shaun and Roger it could not have been more perfect.

Roger is still new to the collector lifestyle and recently began his collection with a Breyer bull. Shaun has been collecting Breyers her whole life and has attended BreyerFest every year since 2007; this was Roger's fourth year joining her.

For Shaun, having her wedding at the Kentucky Horse Park during BreyerFest was a dream come true, and you could see it on her face throughout the entire ceremony...
