Flashback Friday: Kelsey & Meghan

While we’re on vacation this month, the Bicycle Built for Two team (and friends!) are revisiting some of our all-time favorite weddings!

From Maggie:

Kelsey and Meghan’s Minnesota wedding is a DIY dreamboat, from the handmade dress (and atttendants’ dresses!!), invitation-assembling crafternoons, and centerpieces built by Kelsey’s uncle! 

As a recent grad school graduate, I can more than sympathize with the desire to have a fabulous wedding that doesn’t involve spending tens of thousands of dollars, and Kelsey and Meghan did just that, with a strict budget of $6,000 and lots of help from friends and family. 

As they put it, “At the end of the day, and after all the heart-ache, we learned that the definition and point of marriage is not only about what the couple mean to each other, but what the couple’s community mean to them,” and that’s just what this wedding demonstrates!

Flashback Friday: Katie & Sheila

While we’re on vacation this month, the Bicycle Built for Two team (and friends!) are revisiting some of our all-time favorite weddings!

Today’s wedding is from another one of our friends, Michelle, whose wedding & anniversary story appeared on the blog last year. When we asked for her flashback favorite, she picked Katie & Sheila’s South Carolina wedding from the fall of 2016.

From Michelle:

Everything about this wedding speaks to my heart—the colors, the setting, the tight budget. I deeply empathize with the struggle that comes from a long-distance relationship while one half is in another country—my own wife & began our courtship while she spent eight months away, most of that on the other side of the world. The photos of these ladies on their wedding day are evidence enough that their love is strong & beautiful, enough so that they can weather adversity and gather their loved ones together in celebration of who & what they are.

Favorite points: Guh, the dresses! Talk about “simplistically beautiful”! There’s nothing I don’t love about this wedding attire. (My wife & I also discussed wearing colored gowns while our bridemaids wore white, so my envy is showing a bit here.) The soft, dreamy pastels, the long clean lines of lace, the flower coronets: everything here works to showcase the image (my particular fave is the second-to-last one!) of a marriage built on love, trust, & the joy that comes from being together.

Flashback Friday: Emily & Elizabeth

While we’re on vacation this month, the Bicycle Built for Two team (and friends!) are revisiting some of our all-time favorite weddings!

Today’s wedding is one of those from the “and friends” referred to above—after an evening spent scrolling through the archives and enjoying miniature Kit Kats (the best!), Ashley’s roommate Audrey picked Emily & Elizabeth’s Seattle wedding as this week’s flashback, proclaiming them “really f***ing cute.”

When asked to elaborate, Audrey said that she loves:

-the way Emily and Elizabeth’s photographer incorporated the architecture of Four Points into their first look

-the gorgeous floral tattoo situation pictured below

-Emily and Elizabeth’s hair styles, which are “coordinated, but not too similar” 

-and of course, their adorable goose cake—for the full story behind that one, check out the original post

Audrey is currently looking for her “goose,” and though I offered to turn this post into a personal ad, for some reason, she thought that might not be the best way to find her soulmate…

Flashback Friday: Lindsay & Christine

While we’re on vacation this month, the Bicycle Built for Two team (and friends!) are revisiting some of our all-time favorite weddings!

From Ashley:

I am a sucker for DIY weddings, and Lindsay & Christine’s is one that stands out as a favorite of mine! They designed/produced all of the beautiful details of their wedding and the results are truly impressive (check out those gorgeous centerpieces as an example!). I also love this white suit coat/black pants situation and the more feminine take on the bow tie. Finally, this last photo really makes me think we’d be great friends… Brides who dance are my kind of people.

Flashback Friday: Tracy & Danielle

While we’re on vacation this month, the Bicycle Built for Two team (and friends!) are revisiting some of our all-time favorite weddings!

From Maggie:

If you ask me, Tracy & Danielle’s intimate queer wedding is the perfect manifestation of the strength and community we’ve all needed a little bit more of over the past eight months. With just 52 days of planning and a budget of $1,500, they put together an event that I love for its low-maintenance authenticity. Who couldn’t adore the hand-lettered signs and DIY details—not to mention the obvious love that radiates from these photos? 

Bonus: the food! Judging from the photos, Tracy & Danielle’s guests enjoyed a baked potato bar, a s’more station, and some delicious-looking caramel apple pies that I would more than be happy to dig into.

Flashback Friday: Wendi & Crystal

While we’re on vacation this month, the Bicycle Built for Two team is revisiting some of our all-time favorite weddings!

From Taylor:

I love the off-white, short dresses in this wedding and the simplicity of the color scheme. I love the genuine smiles of the brides and their clear adoration for each other. But most importantly, I love Wendi and Crystal’s story. I needed it along my journey, and their love is a powerful testament to the beauty and freedom that come from living into your truth. Thanks, Wendi and Crystal, for sharing your story with the world!

Flashback Friday: Emily & Holly

While we’re on vacation this month, the Bicycle Built for Two team is revisiting some of our all-time favorite (or, as Alice would say, favourite) weddings!

From Alice:

I love the English country rustic feel of Emily and Holly’s wedding. I love the florals, the bunting, the country church and, most of all, the beautiful flower crown! Their words also paint a beautiful picture of the community of loving family and friends they had surrounding them on their special day. As an English country girl myself, their wedding makes my dreams for the future seem that much more achievable. Thank you, Emily and Holly, for sharing your day with me and the rest of the readers.

(When we got in touch with Emily & Holly, they sent us some bonus shots, since the first time Emily sent the photos, Holly “was not consulted.” Haha. The first photo was one of her picks!)
