totally unique wedding reception idea

if you're getting married in maine and looking for a way to make your wedding rehearsal dinner or wedding reception dinner totally unique and completely awesome, check out harvest moon pizza! these guys craft delicous pizzas from locally sourced ingredients; they even use grain that's grown and ground in maine. this is what they say about their ingredients.

Our farmland in Bremen affords us the opportunity to offer fresh, seasonally available organically grown vegetables and organic, pastured meat on our pizzas. Harvest Moon is fortunate to be located in Mid Coast Maine where we have access to a wide range of local seafood, meats, produce, cheeses, herbs and grains.

the pizza is cooked in a wood fired oven that is completely mobile, meaning they can set up at your rehearsal or wedding with no problem. so, what i'm saying is book harvest moon pizza if you want food and an experience that is:

  • organic

  • local

  • delicious

  • super cool

  • unique

  • fun

  • seriously farm to table

elephants in weddings

i recently had a lovely visit with a friend of mine who is an interior designer. she shared with me that elephants are really hot in the design world right now. it got me thinking about elephants and how they might be incorporated into weddings, either literally or symbolically. so i started doing a little research. here's is what i found out: 

  • elephants are a symbol of wisdom, strength, and perseverance (um, yeah, those could help in a marriage) 
  • elephants are a symbol of good luck (some say with the trunk up but others say it doesn't matter)
  • elephants are a symbol of unwavering devotion (in hinduism it's to the "master" but in your case it could be to your marriage)

so with all this amazing symbolism that could relate to marriage, i thought it'd be fun to see how some people have already incorporated this gentle giant into their wedding.

then i started thinking, okay so maybe you won't be able to rent an elephant to escort you to your wedding, but what about including some elephants in your wedding in other ways.
