A whimsical DIY bike-themed wedding by Ardita Kola
by Stephanie

There's something special about a couple that picks a meaningful motif for their big day — it says a lot about their past, personalities and happy memories together. Today's beautiful couple, Tonya and Frank, were married in an almost all-DIY day that was brought together by a red tandem bike — the couple's theme for the whimsical wedding day! Set against the beautiful outdoor backdrop provided by Auburn Heights, the ceremony and reception were made all the more memorable with handmade details and pops of red.

The whole day was captured elegantly by Ardita Kola Photography, who shared a little more about Tonya and Frank's big day:

"From tandem bikes, to wonderful ballet props from Tonya’s past, to the beautiful venue at Auburn Heights and all the DIY projects Frank and Tonya worked so hard to create… everything came together into an awesome, eclectic and intimate wedding full of meaning and love as they were married surrounded by their most loved family and friends."

Read on to see more of Tonya and Frank's beautiful, whimsical bike-themed wedding day!
