Many who send wedding invitations through the mail often choose a stamp design that offers the perfect message to recipients. For one individual in Grand Lake, CO, the acquisition of that special stamp involved a unique form of transportation.

Amber Valez and her fiancé identified the perfect stamp to accentuate their wedding invitations to friends and loved ones. Rather than set off in a mechanized form of transportation, Amber opted to venture out to her local Post Office via horseback.

The distinctive mode of transportation faithfully waited outside the office while Amber picked up a collection of Love stamps. Grand Lake Postmaster Diane Mahoney was thrilled to have the special visitor at her office waiting for its owner.

“I thought it was a great example of us here in the Wild Wild West!” said Mahoney.

    She should have used this beautiful picture to create a stamp! I have done that on several occasions. Her stamp could have acknowledged her special trip to mail her invitations.
