Since Bike Week and St. Patrick's Day coincide this year, Volusia County Clerk of Courts Laura Roth is teaming up with Bruce Rossmeyer Daytona Harley-Davidson to give bikers a unique wedding ceremony.
"Statistically, in prior years, Bike Week and St. Patrick's Day have been two of our biggest, busiest times as far as people getting licenses and getting married while they are here," Roth said.
The 76th anniversary of Bike Week started Friday and runs through Sunday. St. Patrick's Day, March 17, is on a Friday this year.
Bikers can start arriving at 5 p.m. Friday at the Pavilion at Bruce Rossmeyer's Daytona Harley-Davidson, 1637 N. U.S. 1. The ceremony starts at 6 p.m.
Destination Daytona will supply the music by Stone Senate and a cash bar.
Roth will supply a bike-themed wedding cake paid for out of her own personal money. Roth doesn't ride a bike but she will be dressed in green accentuated with a black-leather jacket.
Roth said in-state residents need to keep in mind they must apply three days in advance for the marriage license. Out-of-state residents don't need to wait.
And you don't have to be on a Harley-Davidson to get hitched at the biker wedding. All brands of bikes are welcome, said Mandy Rossmeyer, events promotion manager for Bruce Rossmeyer's.
"There's going to be a band and it's going to be a great time," she said.
