A friend of mine went to a very unusual wedding last year; it was a Thanksgiving themed wedding. The story goes that the couple met at a Thanksgiving dinner (not really sure if it was the groom's family or the bride's) a few years ago. And from that time they always celebrated Thanksgiving together, either with his family or her family, and sometimes both. When they decided to get married, they were thinking of what the color theme would be. They both agreed on fall colors, but as planning became more and more detailed, they decided to have a theme wedding to commemorate the holiday they both met, Thanksgiving. What a romantic thing-- and I am one to swoon over romance.

My friend related to me how lovely the whole event was. They had to hold the wedding a week before Thanksgiving because mostly everyone was out on that Thanksgiving weekend. The bride wore a very nice wedding gown with lovely leaf designs on the train of the dress. The groom wore a very handsome tuxedo with brown, copper, yellow, orange accented cummerbund and bow tie. The bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls and ring bearers were in pilgrim costumes complete with the pilgrim hats. The wedding guests were encouraged to wear Thanksgiving dresses and suits or formal clothing in the colors of Thanksgiving. My friend said it was a very colorful sight; all the colors of the Thanksgiving were there.

The wedding menu consisted of traditional Thanksgiving foods with a twist. There was roasted turkey, which was cooked in stone ovens, which was served with mango-cranberry sauce, a side of wild rice stuffing and vegetable which was roasted inside the turkey. For dessert, they had a pumpkin-cinnamon frozen custard (by the way, the couple loves frozen custard) and a mix of fresh berries. I literally felt hungry as my friend was relating this to me.
Such a nice wedding on a very special holiday… Thanksgiving
