Brides of March Info & FFArtRide “Brides Ride” Photos

Following the shotgun wedding at City Hall on Friday March 5, we rode our bikes down California Street to the sea where we took photos of the wedding party and popped the cork on a quite drinkable $6 organic cava from Trader Joe’s.

We had a number of brides, as you can see, as well as Lucy the Flower Girl, a few grooms, a mother of the bride (in lovely lavender), and a few bridesmaids too.

After the ceremonial toasting, but prior to more bicycle riding, we did some tree climbing. Several people took photos to prove it and I will post them when they show up!

We went to a number of galleries without mishap save two on the way to City Hall: the one pictured and when my veil got stuck in my bikergo (no photos but I was certainly delayed! Fortunately my friend David answered my desperate cell phone call for assistance!) Yes, I was quite the picture there on the corner of Santa Clara and Hemlock for over 30 minutes. You can imagine the looks I got!

The wedding reception was held at Bell Arts Factory with beer from Anacapa Brewery. It got a little crazy. But no harm was done to animals or artwork.

MANY Brides of March gather TODAY Saturday March 13!  Other Brides hook up next Saturday and Sunday March 20 & 21! Learn more about transforming a gown from a thrift store find into something you can wear yourself at your local Brides of March event.
