A Bicycle Built For Two

From the bride, Meryl: My 86 year old grandfather married us.  He was so nervous that he went straight to the vows skipping over the script.  We created edible centerpieces.  On each table we had fresh baguettes, three kinds of French cheeses and three types of fruit. We named all our tables from places where our guests had traveled from.  It was quite the conversation starter since we had London, Ascoli Piceno, Italy, Canada, Paris and many more! For favors, we got chalk board flower pots and put a parakeet (mini bird of paradise) in each, these doubled as name places for the table and as gifts for each guest.

Our get-away vehicle was a black cruiser bicycle.  Since I was going to be riding on the handle bars, we practiced the week before.  I wore a skirt for our practice sessions although I was concerned that once in my wedding dress I would not fit on the handle bars.  In the end, it worked and we had a fun time with it.
