Sally (Eichelzer) and Paul Ringdahl were married at Trinity Episcopal Church in Emmetsburg 35 years ago. Their bicycle group surprised Sally and Paul with an impromptu "wedding" at Trinity Episcopal on Monday, the overnight stop for RAGBRAI.
"It was a real surprise," said Sally. "They had a fake minister for the ceremony. I have a lovely bouquet of flowers and we even had cupcakes."
Sally and Paul were celebrating at Soper Park, along with a few thousand of their closest friends, Monday night. Sally wore a white veil and carried a bouquet of flower. Paul's shirt resembled a tuxedo.
The Happy Couple - Still biking after 35 years
Sally is originally from West Bend. The couple currently lives in Alexandria, MN.
Their bicycle group stayed at Trinity Episcopal and parked their bicycles inside, too.
