A Beer Garden Wedding Story

We would like to congratulate Michael and Christina Baker of Davis, Oklahoma, who were married Main Stage in the Dickson Street Beer Garden this past rally.  We extend our heartfelt wishes to the newlyweds for a long and happy ride together!  Christina tells their story:

Michael and I met 4 years ago at the convenience store I used to manage.  He came in often and we would chat. One day he came in wearing riding gear, so I asked what he was riding.

"A Honda, you wanna a ride??" he said.  He claims I snarled my nose. "Oh, not hardly. I only ride Harley's!" I told him.  "Oh, well my Harley is in the Shop being painted!" he immediately responded.

Well, I had to get back to work, so Michael left. On his way home he thought to himself that having his Harley in the shop sounded like a line, when in fact his Fat Bob was in the shop being painted. It was about 2 weeks later that I hear a loud Harley pull into the store parking lot, it was Michael.  He came in and told me he thought I didn't believe him.  He had just gotten the bike out of the shop and rode it straight to see me. I fell in love with the bike and Michael instantly!

We dated for about a year or so and he invited me to go to BBBQ.  I was excited just to experience the event itself, but once we had gotten there Michael got down on one knee in Uber Burger on Dickson Street and proposed to me! I of course said yes!!! We planned to get married last year, but circumstances beyond our control prevented it. So, this year we brought several of our closest and dearest friends along and took the big stage vowing our love for one another and the Harley!

Our vows where as follows: "Do you, Christina and
Michael, take one another to be your best friend, faithful riding partner and your one true love, and promise to take care of one another as well as you do your leathers and ride each other as much as you do your Harley, and to love one another unconditionally, through all of your adventures in life together?!"  It was a very fitting wedding for us! It all started over a Harley and BBBQ!

Thank you for allowing us to share our special day in such an amazing way!! BBBQ rocks!!
