It’s been a bit quiet on the blogging front these past few days because I’ve been busy planning a wedding! My boyfriend, Seth, proposed last Thursday, April 5th after 6 1/2 years of togetherness. Coincidentally, he proposed to me last year on April 5th, too, but we had to call off the engagement to do some soul searching for a while. This time it’s for real – we’re committed, and we’re both looking forward to spending forever with each other :)
We’re going to have a very small wedding ceremony in June up in the mountains outside of Colorado Springs. Very sadly, Seth’s great aunt Dottie passed away on the same day he proposed to me. We’re going to honor her life and spirit by being married on her beautiful mountain property…
I’m not sure I’d be sharing all these details if I didn’t want something in return from you guys (I’ll let you know what it is in a minute). I’m realizing that I’m a pretty private person when it comes to love, and that’s why we’re only having about 10 people at the ceremony. After the ceremony, we’ll be having dinner at a gorgeous Tudor style manor in Manitou Springs, Colorado.
Most people don’t know this, but I’m a sucker for anything Tudor. My mom better watch out or I might get a replica of Queen Mary’s wedding dress for the nuptials.
Anyway, what I need help with is dessert. Has anyone had a Paleo wedding? While it’s tempting to just get a normal cake and let our family eat it while we abstain, I think that’s preposterous. Our family will just have to suffer through a Paleo cake for our sake :)
If you’ve had a Paleo wedding, what did you do for your special sweet treat? If you have any stories to share or if – better yet – you have some recipes for me, I’d be eternally grateful if you’d either comment below or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Hope to hear all about your Paleo weddings!
