Weddings become extra special when so much thought is put into every detail. Today’s couple, Zac and Mia, made sure that all elements in their special day represented who they are as a couple, especially the food that they served during their wedding weekend. Both vegetarians, they arranged veggie-friendly food for everyone to enjoy.
“My family who loves to eat anything and everything, was so considerate and indulged in veggie friendly meals throughout our wedding weekend.” – Mia, Bride
They decided not to hire a caterer to keep Mia’s 85-year-old grandmother safe, so her brother and mother stepped up and cooked all the dishes for the wedding themselves, from scratch! From 5AM to 7PM that day, they were mostly in the kitchen together.
“Zac and I were introduced by a common friend 2 years ago because she knew that the both of us haven’t eaten meat for over 6 years now, and she thought we’d be perfect for each other. In lechon, pork barbecue loving Philippines, meeting your plant based soul mate is a truly rare thing!” – Mia, Bride
The dishes that Mia’s family personally cooked are now staples when they have gatherings! The squash soup and veggie lasagna were such a hit that they’ll serve them again on their parents’ 40th anniversary celebration.
There are so many details to note in this intimate tropical wedding, so go ahead and scroll through this set by Rainbowfish Photography.
