Josh Weds Dana: The Food
We wanted good food and drink at our wedding, and we definitely got it. Now, Josh isn't vegan, so we had a mix of vegan and non-vegan items. We did a taco bar, which was heavy on the veggies, and the cupcakes and toppings were all vegan. Cafe 42 of the Clinton Library did the food, and Blue Cake Company did the cupcakes.
We had vegan Mexican street corn, rice, and beans and corn. There was also a KILLER tofu filling for the various types of tacos. The cheese dip was not vegan.
We also had a chips and salsa bar with all sorts of yummy toppings for the tacos. We also had vegan tamales, carrot salad, and jicama slaw. You can see the amazing tofu filling in the picture above. It was fantastic. We had so many of our guests tell us how much they liked the tofu, which I thought was a great thing. We only had two other vegans attending, our friends Sheridan and Drew, but everyone told us how much they liked the food. We chose not to make the menu fully vegan, because we wanted it to reflect both of us, but I'm glad we got to expose our guest to a lot of tasty vegan eats.
Thankfully, our friends were nice enough to make us a plate. We nibbled on our dishes, but we didn't have much time to eat. I'm glad we got to try a little bit, though. The food was so good.
We had chocolate, vanilla, and Italian wedding cupcakes, with a dollop of vegan whipped topping. Cafe 42 provided a berry compote to go on top. So yummy! So many people asked, "Are those cupcakes really vegan?! They are so good!" Well yes, vegan cupcakes are AMAZING.
We did the feeding of cupcakes, but no face smashing. I chickened out at the last minute.
Lastly, we had an open beer and wine bar, with regional beer. I didn't have any wine, but I did have a few Marshall beers over the course of the day. It was pretty impossible to finish a drink, because Josh and I were constantly talking to people, taking pictures, or dancing. So much fun though! I have no regrets.
If you're in Little Rock, and you're looking for vendors that can do vegan options, definitely check out Cafe 42 and Blue Cake Company!
