We were blessed to be able to go to a wonderful wedding yesterday for another one of my remarkable nephews and his equally remarkable bride.
The wedding ceremony was held outside under perfect conditions, where the bride and groom shared a beautiful set of vows with each other.
After a fun outdoor reception, it was time to head inside for the dinner.
The food was delicious, and in somewhat of a surprise, I recognized much of the music that the DJ was playing in the background.
After dinner, tables were cleared and people started to pack the dance floor. This time around, I wasn’t quite sure what most of the music being played was. What happened to Color My World by Chicago? 🙂
Anyway, it wasn’t too long before the servers brought out dessert and people took a break to check out the dessert table.
It was at this point that I happened to look over at the table where the bride and groom were seated during dinner, and I noticed they had not touched anything on their plates.
The photo above offers proof. A stuffed flounder on one plate, and filet mignon on the other.
The bride and groom had been spending most of their time walking around and chatting with people, as well as out on the dance floor.
They were obviously having a great time, and dinner was not a priority.
I’m not sure if skipping dinner lead to some late-night hunger pangs, but the adrenaline of the day likely carried them through.
Perhaps part of a wedding planner’s responsibility should be to ensure that the couple eats some of their dinner.
Maybe at a future wedding, I’ll be able to take pictures of the bride and groom being fed spoonfuls of their dinner while out on the dance floor.
That’s what I would call white-glove service…
Congratulations, Lauren and Mark, and I wish you many happy years of love and marriage!
