BE A PART OF THE PETA2 MOVEMENT

A Vegan Wedding in Photos

Posted May 29, 2009 by Marta Holmberg

I went to my first-ever vegan wedding recently, and it was so fun! It was amazing to go to a cruelty-free wedding—it sends such a positive message. Check out the happy bride and groom—two of my favorite people ever—on the big day (they know that Meat’s Not Green!):


You better believe lots of deliciousness graced my plate (and eventually, my happy stomach): General Tso’s vegan chicken, stuffed tomato, Tofurky brat, sushi, avocado wrap, falafel with hummus, veggie pate, and fruit. Also, notice the super-cute cupcake-cookie wedding favor. Anyone who doesn’t think vegan food is delicious definitely hasn’t been to a vegan wedding!


There were beautiful (and tasty!) veggie pates:


And loads of veggie sushi, too.


And not to rub it in or anything (OK, to rub it in a little), there were vegan cupcake towers! Check out the vanilla cupcakes with strawberry frosting and the chocolate cupcakes with mocha frosting from Sticky Fingers Bakery! Jealous?


Who wishes they had a cupcake right now?

Marta

P.S. Check out the delish chocolate dipped strawberries we had at the rehearsal dinner!

    My vegan wedding just took place this weekend! It was AMAZING as well as extravagant. We didn’t inform guests and some only found out after dinner. We printed the go veg site on our favors and with all the compliments about my figure and my husband’s significant weight loss we had a visible, if not superficial, reason for people to make the switch. I designed and fabricated featherless facinators for all the females and purchased polyester pocket silks for the men. A couture gown that wasn’t silk and no wool tuxedos!

    Mmmm… *licking the screen* (This is totally my dream wedding right here. I would love to be able to show people how good vegetarian/vegan people can eat, without hurting animals or the environment!)

    Wow!! I’m so inspired by this post!! Those cupcakes are the truth!! :) I’m starting a website & blog for vegan brides & grooms, which was inspired by my father’s sudden withdrawal of support for my wedding, due to the fact that I’m serving a vegan menu. Has anyone else gone through an experience like this?? Also, I’d love to get 7 share ideas from vegan weddings with the public at large, as well as featuring real vegan weddings when the site is launched. Thanks for the great work peta2!! I’d love to exchange links!!

    Ohh, if only we could reach into the screen & devour the food (great photography skills,by the way)!! Too bad technology isn’t that advanced yet. The newlyweds look beautiful together. Well, take good care!!

    Oooh, I’m about to have my own vegan wedding, though mine will be at a courthouse! The honeymoon is the best part.
    I’m going to Sticky Fingers on June 4th to get the cake and other goodies (obviously) and then heading to The White Pig– a vegan b&b and animal sanctuary for pot-bellied pigs, mostly. There will be lots of vegan food, and I cannot wait!!!
