Michelle and George kicked off their holiday weekend by eloping before setting off on their Harley. I loved it when Michelle sent me this wedding ceremony script she found written just for bikers. And yes, big biker George cried like a baby as you said his vows! They were married by the river in Falls Park in Pendleton, IN.
Michelle and George have been riding together for ten years and their experience of that togetherness has led them here today, to make a public pronouncement that they have each found the one, and luckily for them, it is each other.
When you say to the other, “I love you,” what you are saying is, “Hold on tight, the ride is long.” Be understanding of your partner’s needs. Hold each other in the highest regard. Have a sense of humor as you meet life’s challenges. Honor one another when you are together or apart. Respect each other’s differences. Enjoy the good times, and endure the storms. When your heart and the wide open roads call you, follow just to see what awaits you. Don’t be afraid to satisfy your dreams with new and different experiences.
Make your dreams come true, together …Most of all, love one another… and the realization of the meaning of that beautiful promise “To have and to hold…”
George: I love you more than the wind whipping through my beard, hold on tight and always be ready to ride and we will be happy forever. As we take our vows of marriage I will love you and take you anywhere we can ride on two wheels, please take my heart and ride with me as my wife.
Michelle: I love you more than words can express, I love the way I can snuggle up with you on the bike, being with you, holding you tightly as you take the turns, I can feel a connection with you, and I love that feeling. I want to hold you forever, riding down any road we come to. Our marriage and love will take us through any weather and it makes me very happy to now become your wife.
Meaning of the Rings
These rings are the symbol of your marriage vows, of love never ending, the ties that bind you together as husband and wife. They mark the beginning of your long ride together
With this ring, I thee wed, for today, for tomorrow, for all the years, and for all the journeys to come. Please wear it as a sign of my deep and everlasting love.
May your love grow ever stronger as you share your lives together, and may your future be even more wonderful than you ever dreamed possible. You have made your promises and exchanged your rings. By the power vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and wife!
You may kiss your beautiful bike riding wife!
