4 Things I Loved About Their Big Day:
- Brunch Wedding
- Foot Washing Ceremony
- The Bride’s Dress w/ Pockets
- Gluten Free/Dairy Free Menu
1. Brunch Wedding
Michael & Emily’s playful mid-day wedding was paired perfectly with their fun brunch menu. I don’t even know where to begin. There was a huge coffee bar with something for everyone, delicious made to order waffles, french toast, bacon, country potatoes, chicken and much more. We really got the best of both worlds. Not only is a brunch wedding great for guests but its a real win for the couple as well.
- Budget friendly – Brunch menus are typically much less expensive than dinner menus
- Great natural lighting for your wedding photos
- Availability – It’s less likely that your venue will be booked for your date and time
2. Foot Washing Ceremony
This was one of the most emotional parts of the wedding ceremony. It was the perfect public display of love and humility. Traditionally, foot washing is one of the cornerstones of a Christian wedding. The goal in a Christian marriage is to be a reflection of Christ. Foot washing between husband and wife models Jesus’ display of service in washing his disciples’ feet at the last supper (John 13:1-17)
3. The Bride’s Dress…It had pockets!
This genius fashion trend is by far my favorite. I was tempted to start a slow clap when Emily reached into her dress pocket to retrieve her wedding vows. 🙂 Brides are all about these playful dress styles with hidden storage. It’s the ideal little spot to stash your lipstick, a handkerchief or perhaps your wedding vows. Instant game changer for any bride!
4. Gluten Free/Dairy Free Menu
Yes! The entire meal was gluten free and it was phenomenal. I was a bit skeptical but I was also a bit hungry, so during our break I dove in and could not believe my tastebuds. EVERYTHING was so DELICIOUS! I applaud Michael and Emily for creating a menu that met their needs but was still a huge hit with their guests. By the way, the cake was no exception to the DELICIOUSNESS! My Vegan Sweet Tooth stole the show with their gluten free wedding cake and cupcakes that were not only beautiful but also very tasty. If you haven’t given them a try I strongly recommend stopping by for a taste. You won’t regret it.
Emily & Michael, thank you for inviting us to witness your beautiful union. We pray that your marriage serves as an example to the world of what God intended marriage to be. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Rizzi
