"We cannot thank you enough for officiating our wedding. It was simple, elegant and perfect. We've always appreciated things that are out of the ordinary and your ceremony was much more "us" than a big, impersonal and expensive wedding. Standing in the sunshine, sharing our personal vows was very moving. Our ride up and down the boardwalk with people wishing us all the best and taking pictures was an unexpected treat that made for a wonderful conclusion. I highly recommend everyone take a victory lap through Venice....the ride afterward is a blast (make sure the bride wears her veil, it's like a wedding beacon and it seems to bring out the best in people.) It was truly a perfect wedding."
What is a bike wedding?
A bike wedding is an event where as many guests, wedding providers, and bridal party members as possible travel to the location by bicycle. Why? Because it's healthy, fun, and keeps the carbon footprint of the wedding low!
Cycling to the event isn't mandatory of course; it just adds to the esprit de corps, merriment, and environmental friendliness of the day. It also burns a few clean calories, offsetting the impact of that wedding cake.
Up to ten guests may attend the festivities, and we encourage everyone to join the newlyweds in a Bridal Bike Parade immediately after the ceremony.
Will it be legal?
Yes! If you qualify for the California confidential marriage license we can issue your marriage license on your wedding day, then perform your wedding ceremony on the spot--no trip to the County Clerk's office, which reduces your carbon footprint even more.
Confidential marriage licenses do not require witnesses, so you and your sweetheart can tandem to a private elopement ceremony without worrying about slowpokes and stragglers. Of course, you're also welcome to invite friends and family to share your joyous occasion even if they don't need to sign the marriage license.
You can also obtain your own marriage license at your leisure; we'll be happy to perform your ceremony, solemnize your license, and even pedal down to our local post office to mail the documents for you afterwards.
