Bikers get hitched for Sturgis 75th

Sturgis, SD Love is in the air at the Sturgis rally, and some couples took it to the alter Saturday.

Our reporter Robert Grant was in Lead with the bikers that got hitched.

And with that, these two wheelers are now one – tying the knot during the 75th.

Tina and Bobby Owens, who just got married, said "I love you. Love you too. And we're happy."

This isn't Tina and Bobby Owens first time to the Rally – but it is the first time they could get married - during a mass biker wedding, Saturday.

And their honeymoon is, of course – a week in Rally Town.

But, the Owens weren't the only ones to express their love at the alter a couple all the way from Texas renewed their vows as well.

Donny and Teresa Cox, who renewed their vows, said "I love him so much and during the little ceremony, I got a little emotional just because you know it's something special for us."

Donny and Teresa Cox bought a vacation home in Lead one year ago – and have been married for four.

And just like the Rally, their story starts with a bike.

Donny and Teresa said "He walked in that door and I thought he looked kind of goofy, but he had on a shirt that said Harley–Davidson and I thought to myself, if he has a motorcycle I'll go out with him. And he did – he had three."

Black Hills Rally Weddings revved into town about 8 years ago – but this was the first year they held a mass ceremony - with 4 couples walking down the aisle.

Kathee McFarland, with Black Hills Rally Weddings, said "The couples that do it have an adventurous spirit and they want to have fun, they have a fun spirit. And it's unique, it's different."

The family–run business says this is the start of a Rally tradition in Lead and they hope next year will be even bigger.

But, either way...

McFarland said "It's just a lot of fun meeting people and it's a happy day."

And if the feeling's right this week – put a ring on it.
