BIKERS FOR CHRIST Motorcycle Ministry -"Some Wish to Live Within the Sound of Church or Chapel Bells, We Want to Run a Rescue Shop Within a Yard of Hell" A "first look" is meant to be that sen mental moment on a couple's wedding day when they first see each other, away from the eyes of family and friends. For Michael Taylor and Amanda Zhang, their "first look" on Nashville's John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge involved a li le more leather than they had an cipated. "So, we're walking on the bridge about to take pictures a er our first look, and I look over and see a huge swarm of bikers coming towards us," Zhang said. "It was very obvious they were in a motorcycle club and I just thought to myself, 'oh great.'" According to Zhang, the Nashville newlyweds had no idea what to expect when they saw roughly 400 bikers approaching them on July 21, a few hours before their wedding ceremony. Michael Taylor and Amanda Zhang receive a blessing from Bikers For Christ on the John Seigenthaler Pedestrian Bridge. "We were going to let them just pass by so we could con nue with our pictures," Zhang said. "Then, all of a sudden, they were all screaming and yelling, 'congratula ons' and this guy comes up and says, 'we're with Bikers for Christ, can we pray over you?'" Surprised and a li le confused, Zhang said they both agreed to the bikers' blessing before being surrounded by a sea of bandannas and sunglasses. "They all got around us and their leader started praying for us," Zhang said. "At the end, everyone was cheering and they gave us all these li le mementos. Then, we took a big group photo with them and they just went on their way. It was so random, but so cool." The day a er their wedding, Camille Waldron, a Bikers for Christ member, posted on Taylor and Zhang's wedding website, "Congratula ons Amanda and Michael! May God bless you both with a life me of love & happiness. Thank you for le ng us pray with you on your special day!" "It's kind of like we got inducted as honorary members of their gang," Zhang said. Pastor-Z's reply was: 4 4 4 "It was definitely one of the most unexpected things to happen and honestly, probably one of the most memorable, too. I mean, it was already the best day ever but that just kind of put it over By Michael W. Aldrich for the Nashville Tennessean the top." Some mes, it's important to keep an open mind on your wedding day, according to Zhang. 'It just goes to show you, you should never judge anyone," Zhang said. "When I first saw them, I was kind of annoyed, but it ended up being one of the coolest things to happen that day."
