When Tracey and I started our wedding planning process we found a lack of inspirational photographs of lesbian weddings on the internet so we decided to start a blog to compile and honor beautiful two-bride weddings.
How “A Bicycle Built For Two” came to be. Tracey and I are from two different worlds; Tracey hails from California and as Jay-Z says, I’m from the Empire State. Tracey was “introduced to society”, came from an upper middle class family, and attended a top university in California. I am from a lower middle class Brooklyn family, a Yankee fan, and went to modest universities. From early on in the relationship I would sing “Daisy Bell” to Tracey replacing “Daisy” with “Tracey.” I knew I would not be able to afford an extravagant wedding that she may have dreamed about.
In the song, released in 1892, Harry Dacre sings about the love he has for Daisy. It’s a charming song with sweet lyrics. Below is the chorus I sing to Tracey:
Tracey, Tracey, give me your answer do
I’m half crazy all for the love of you
It won’t be a stylish marriage
I can’t afford a carriage
But you’ll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two
Our wedding (in April) is going to be beautiful and more importantly I get to marry Tracey. We look forward to sharing our photographs* (thanks Ray!) with you. Ang
