Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Darter

James Darter and Michelle Bradam were married on September 26, 2014 on the Main Stage during Bikes Blues and BBQ.   They met a year ago after being introduced by a mutual friend, and chose to begin their new lives together before a massive crowd in the Dickson Street Beer Garden, with Joe Giles performing the honors.  What better way to begin a marriage than with the cheers of family and a few hundred biker friends?

"Last year a mutual friend was very persistent that we meet so we finally agreed to, just to shut him up," Michelle told us.  "We haven't been apart since.  We have so much in common and we both love to ride and just to go anywhere. I have always been a passenger, I get to see more that way!"

James and Michelle had already made plans to go the 2014 Bikes Blues & BBQ rally.  Michelle had never been and was getting very exited to go. "James had been many times before", states Michelle, "when he told me about people getting married at the rally, my immediate reaction was:  How perfect could that be!!!"  So, Michelle got in contact with Joe, got everything set up, and a year to the date of when she and James met, they were married.  "Everything was perfect and Joe was amazing!  We can't thank you all enough for what you do", tells Michelle.

Please help us congratulate James and Michelle, and wish them all the best in their future lives together.  We very much look forward to seeing them both at future Bikes Blues and BBQ rallies celebrating many future anniversaries!  We wish you much happiness and many great adventures together!

James is the son of Jim and Carol Darter, Michelle is the daughter of Bill and Rhonda Bradam, residing in the Springfield and Mt. Vernon areas of Missouri.
