When initially dreaming about our wedding, I knew I wanted it to be a representation of David and I and our love for each other. To me, this meant the wedding should incorporate details that shared the things we both love and be a symbol of the joining of our two families, histories and traditions. One of the most noticeable signs of this goal was the inclusion of bicycles throughout the weekend. My husband loves cycling and has been riding and racing since middle school.
We decided early on we wanted a tandem bicycle for guests to take photos with. We searched for a tandem at antique stores and on Craig's List. We were lucky to find one at a great price and in pretty good shape. We took it apart, sanded and sprayed it yellow. With new decals, polished seats and a shiny new chain it was ready for the big day. My dad built a three pieced background which I painted as a chalkboard with quotes. My mom wove a basket for the front which we will filled with flowers.
It was the perfect addition to our wedding and so much fun to see our guests enjoying posing for photos on the tandem.
I'm looking forward to sharing more details from our wedding in the next few weeks!
