Tandem wanted for wedding

You may recall the request for a tandem loaner for a wedding.
Well, I lent her my Burley, and here are the pictures.
It was nice to add to the happiness of the day.

Very Cool. Something borrowed...

This was not during the actual wedding (either before or sometime afterwards from the pictures) since she's not is wearing a wedding gown.

It's a wonderful way to share your passions on that special day....

To this day that picture is our favorite one from the wedding...

Is the bride's name "Daisy Belle"?

There was a second verse my grandmother used to sing:

"Michael, Michael, here is your answer due:
I'm NOT crazy all for the love of you.
If you cannot afford a carridge
There won't be any marriage.
'Cause I'll be switched,
If I'll get hitched,
On a bicycle built for two!"

There's another version that goes "but I'll be damned/if I'll get crammed", but my grandmother was too much of a lady to use that sort of language.
