More Rally Happily Ever Afters


What girl doesn't dream of riding down Dickson Street in her wedding dress, right? 
"The decision to get married at Bikes Blues and BBQ was a no brainer. I mean, what girl doesn't dream of riding down Dickson Street in her wedding dress, right? Not to mention, you never have to decide where to go for your Anniversary!" commented Becka Tipton.

Last BBB rally, Becka was part of a double wedding ceremony.  The four were married on the Main Stage at the Dickson Street Beer Garden on Sept.29, 2012 with  the ceremony being performed by Bikes, Blues and BBQ Executive Director, Joe Giles.  The two grooms are cousins, Shannon Tipton and Justin Rhoades.  Shannon's new bride is Becka Appleberry of Springfield, Missouri, and tying the knot with Justin is the now Tracey Rhoades, who are both from Lebanon, Missouri.  The 2012 rally was the first for the two couples to attend, and will certainly be one they will never forget!

Becka tells us, "Shannon and I own a 2002 Heritage and Justin owns a 1999 custom built Dyna. We share a love for riding and wanted our special day to reflect the kind people we are.  Our favorite part of the rally was definitely seeing all the bikes on Dickson Street at night, the hot BBQ, dirty blues, and cold beer!

We tell everyone we got married in front of 8,000 of our closest friends.

The most memorable part of our ceremony was when it came time for each of us to say "I do", we all responded with a big "HELL YEAH!"  We tell everyone we got married in front of 8,000 of our closest friends. Thanks to Bikes Blues and BBQ, and a special thanks to Joe Giles for being a part of our special day!"

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Shannon Tipton and Mr. and Mrs. Justin Rhoades, we are happy you shared your very special day with us!
