Just married bikes

After our wedding, Alex and I are hoping to ride our bikes instead of driving a getaway car, so I was thrilled to see this awesome elopement. "We rode to the Brooklyn Bridge Park and had a secret ceremony under the shade of a willow tree," says the bride Kortney. Behind their bikes, the happy couple tied Lone Star and Old Style beer cans, since they hail from Texas and Chicago. Adorable all around!

When's your wedding day? I just saw the cutest just married sign on kiss the groom and I'm hoping to get one for my wedding in September. I looove the bike idea - I have been trying to find a place in LA to rent a tandem - so if you come across a place, let me know!

Cafe Fashionista said...

This is too cute for words. The true epitome of the phrase "Bike Love." What a splendrous discovery! :)

naphtali said...

I love this! Love it! Your wedding is going to be too all the details you're thinking about adding.

Joanna Goddard said...

mina, most bike shops have tandems for rent, and i know they have them at venice beach. (we rented one there last winter.) xo

Miss Monogram said...

(English) Rach said...

Totes adorable - and really great pictures too! Then again, you can't go far wrong with a backdrop like that.....

cassaundra said...

how sweet! great idea!

avant garde said...

how fun, i love their idea and your idea of bikes instead of cars. very green, very vintage and romantic. just don't get your dress caught in the chain :)

Pretty Little World said...

These are just plain adorable!! Though I must admit, I'm not certain I'd want to hop on a bike in my wedding dress!!

KELLY said...

SUCH a great idea. I always wish I could go back to my wedding day and add things :)

Reginasaurus said...

This is such a sweet idea! Especially with how much you love your bike :)

Kimberly Julie said...

brides with tattoos are my favorite!! :)

D. Marie said...

These bikes are so cute...and so is the couple! My fiance's mother has an old bike and its so cute...and Ive seen these bikes all during our vacation down the shore...I want bikes now too!

Sarah said...

This is so freaking cute! I can't wait to see you guys do it!

alicia abood said...

i totally think you guys should ride away on bikes, joanna! so fitting to your personality as a couple, and that's what weddings should be about, yes? :)

Michelle said...

Super cute! I love the bike idea.

betsy and iya said...

Oh, this is such a beautiful and inspiring idea. Living in Portland makes this so easy for us. I think a bike ride down the mountain in September, might be in order for our wedding.

Pretty Things said...

There's just no end to people's creativity!

Gretchen said...

Beautiful pictures. What a wonderful idea!

Willa said...

Joanna!! My friend officiated this wedding! She's the girl on the third image where the side of her is cut off. Yay!!

Savanna Leigh said...

Oh hey, there I am! I officiated this wedding, and I helped make those adorable Just Married signs. It was such a perfect ceremony! Cheers!

Laura. said...

i love this idea! what a happy little day!

kerri ní dochartaigh said...

awesome! x

renee @ ruby press said...

so eco-friendly! and chic! i love the idea and you should definitely do it!

stefy b said...

i happened to be biking around that park when this happened! the couple seemed too cute, i wish i had my camera at the time

Alexandra said...

So darling! My friend who loves biking with her hubby got married in a Spanish themed wedding and since her dress was floor length, her mom did not want her riding off on a bike, so they got a cute pedicab!

Kelly said...

oh i just love the bike and the simplicity of the wedding!!

great photos!

Foxywedding said...

I love it! The cans tied to the bike is so cute!

cindy : quaint said...

i love this idea, but i'm worried about your elegant dress!

Meg Fee said...

new yorkers are just so darn cool! i love thiss--I love that you plan on riding your bikes following the wedding!!

my roommate and i in a haze at 2 in the morning last night both bought citizen folding bikes (gotham edition). i'm hoping to avoid leaving mine outside for too long and thus avoid the possibility of theft. i'm moving from the uws to washington heights and since i'm not always a fan of the subway (heat and the crazies) i decided to get the bike to get to and from work in midtown. i hope it all works out--I'm very excited.

though if i does get stolen, i'm going the clunker route for sure!!

Maki said...

You and Alex always come up with the most charming idea for your wedding.... I can't wait for your big day :)

cinner said...

I love the idea, they sure were a cute couple, love the photos. Take care and all the best to you.

bagelpower said...

Just wondering why and how she rode a boys bike in that lovely dress, maybe not the best choice while you are trying to be somewhat ladylike on your wedding day - but great idea and VERY eco-chic!!! love it.

Simply Mel said...

Could you two be any freakin' cooler? This is sooo awesome!

kortney said...

Thanks for all the kind comments! The bike ride to and from the Bridge was certainly a highlight. We had pedestrians clapping and cars and buses honking! Regarding Bagel Power, both of us have ridden road bikes for 10+ years, and I was a former racer, so it was just natural to ride our favorite bikes! Riding in a skirt wasn't an issue, as I've done it for years and have found billowy, full skirts to be the easiest to ride in. However, there are skirt-friendly girl-specific bikes out there if you're concerned about such things. What made this so special for us is we did what felt comfortable and made us happy, and that is the best advice I can give to anyone planning a wedding! Best of luck to you and your wedding.

Katy said...

So cute .........must get bike x

Ally Redhead said...

I adore her headband in favour of a veil. Very chic and modern!

Caity Cait said...

Absolutely adorable.

beautifuliving said...

Are you into Martha Stewart? I'm married but I still read her wedding magazine.:blush: It's the paper obsessor in me. Anyhow I thought I'd mention that the current issue features a couple that got married in Brooklyn and they rode off on Just Married bikes. The flags were pretty adorable with the words in this lush script.

And how could I not mention that it was lovely chatting with you and Alex on Sunday.


Kristin said...

That is beyond sweet!

siescierto said...

Her dress is lovely! Can't wait to see Joanna's!

Iva said...

superduperUBER CUTE!!

K @ Blog Goggles said...

Yay, Lone Star! Beer of Champions. Or at least Texans.

You definitely should ride your bikes :)

oh, hello friend. said...

just married bikes - has to be the cutest thing ever!!


The Lil Bee said...

I love your idea to ride bikes afterward, Jo. That is so sweet!

girlontheave said...

ooh this is so cute! it's so easy to get swept up in a wedding and lose your personality...this is the total opposite and lets you embrace what you're passionate about in a very real, down-to-earth way. great idea!

Anonymous said...

does anyone know what kind of flower the bride is holding? so beautiful!

Miss HoneyDew said...

awe so cute!!!

Kelly said...

A short haired bride - thank you!! I've seen so few examples.

Anonymous: I'm pretty sure the flower is a peony.

Amanda said...

This is adorable. It'd be even better on a tandem bike, so that the married couple could ride together!


Apt. #34 said...

I saw that wedding and immediately thought of you!

alli_jo said...

That is lovely! You have such great wedding ideas!

(PS: My nickname is Jo, and I'm about to marry an Alex, too!)

The Fab Miss B said...

One of my dear friends is getting married next summer and I feel like I'm sending her links to your wedding posts everyday! They are all so lighthearted and fun. Right up her alley! thanks Joanna!

Kirsten said...

Dottie said...

I love it! My husband and I were just talking about how we wish we had done this at our wedding, but 5 years ago we were not yet bike people :)

hey_kate said...

kortney said...

The flowers are peonies,majorica spray roses, and pincushions. The bouquet and boutonniere are from Saipua in Red hook, Brooklyn. Check out their website:
