Michael and Kimberli met on BikerorNot.com. “He took the chance and sent me an email.” The two met for dinner and had an instant connection.
180 guests, including a ten-person bridal party, helped the couple celebrate their nuptials. “We decided to have a non-traditional ceremony – one of our biker friends who is a minister performed the ceremony. We had our sisters and friends involved with readings and songs. We spoke vows to our adult children as well with each other and we blended a margarita for our blending of families.”
Kimberli also surprised Mike with a special ringbearer, who delivered the rings in a dramatic fashion, a hawk. “Mike’s favorite bird is a Red-tailed hawk. His reaction was priceless.”
The couple incorporated their love of motorcycles into their entire day, starting with a ride before the ceremony to High Rock that included 36 motorcycles, to the bride driving her motorcycle to the ceremony, to their Harley Davidson wedding bands. After the reception, the couple invited their guests to join them at a bonfire for an afterparty.
Mike is an industrial insulation supervisor & Kim is a branch manager in a staffing company. They reside in Hanover, Pennsylvania.
