Bicycle Wedding

Pam and Joe are teachers in Brooklyn and didn’t have a huge budget, but they put together the most gorgeous, heartfelt wedding. First they tied the knot at a neighborhood park, then rode bikes to a Brooklyn bar, where they’d had their first date. (Pam’s biking secret? She wore denim cutoffs under her dress! Can you spot them, above?:)

Everyone drank beers and smashed a pinata…

…and they had whoopie pies instead of wedding cake.
Doesn’t it look great? Sometimes the simplest weddings look the most relaxed and fun, don’t you think? Congratulations, Pam and Joe! (See many more photos here.)

  3. Each time I used to always check blog posts within the first hours in the break of day, because I like to get information increasingly more.motor bike jacket

  4. A bicycle wedding’ maybe the strangest stuff! I’ve ever seen in my whole life

  5. It’s an ultimate kind of celebration for the wedding ceremony.congrats to the wedding couples.If any one needs help to plan a wedding,my suggestion is to use the wedding app and plan the wedding happily.

  6. Creative expression is also encouraged to generate a fun and immersive atmosphere during the ride, capture the attention and imagination of the public and media, and make the experience more personalized and fulfilling for the ridersBikes Sydney

  7. My goodness, you are so right! There’s nothing I hate more than boring & uptight weddings… where’s real love? where’s fun? where’s the honest and happy celebration of the union? Well, clearly, with this beautiful and funny couple from Brooklyn… I send them my Congratulations and a big big hug from Barcelona! :)

  8. Aww.. what a wonderful wedding. I also dream of a simple, carefree, and fun wedding. I don’t wanna be all stressed out and zombie-looking on the most important day of my life!

    @S.E. “Super adorable, but..HELMETS?? c’mon kids, you’re even teachers to boot :)”

    You need to get over the whole helmets save lives garbage. They do not. If you are serious about keeping cyclists safe, campaign for separate bike paths. Have a look at what the do in the Netherlands. Making cyclists share the road with fast moving traffic and then going on about helmets is not the way to keep them safe.



  14. thats such a nice relaxed and fun idea! looks like a wedding you’re not going to forget!

  15. I’m so in love with this post…stuff of my dreams, really…

  16. I’m so in love with this post…stuff of my dreams, really…

  17. this looks like such a festive and personal wedding! i am so inspired to have a pinata at my future wedding now!

  18. I love this! So sweet, simple and romantic!! <3

  19. it’s so fun to have bicycle as our ride at the wedding. last sunday, my cousin held his wedding and he rode a big old motorcycle made in UK as his ride. though it’s very hot (since it’s 1 p.m), the couple still looked happy :)which do you prefer then? bicycles or motorcycle? :)

  20. How very very wonderful.

  21. love, thanks for sharing.

  22. Super adorable, but..HELMETS?? c’mon kids, you’re even teachers to boot :)

  23. when you’re on a tight budget and you don’t let it stop you, the results can end up more beautiful than even the most expensive wedding! i’d rather see a couple put their hearts and souls (and crafty fingers) into a wedding, rather than throw money at it. this wedding looks gorgeous & heartfelt, and all the little details are so cute & fun!

  24. I absolutely love it! I don’t think there are any rules to enjoying and making your special day.
