Bea and Sam are getting married tomorrow, and they'll be celebrating many cultures. They'll be getting married under a Jewish chuppah.
The canopy of the chuppah will be made with Bea's grandmother's beautiful tallit.
They'll be wearing Greek crowns, reflecting Sam's culture.
The amazing reception menu (crafted by Primizie Catering) will reflect the Peruvian heritage of both of Bea's parents, with a hint of Greek flair:
Passed Hors d’ Oeuvres:
- Lobster Empanada
- Phyllo Triangles
- Bocconcini Mozzarella and Wild Mushroom Polenta Crostini
- Mixed Shellfish Seviche’
- Avocado Salad with Lemon, Bacon and Watercress
- Pana de Bono
- South American Hanger Steak
- Masa Crusted Chicken
- Spanish Paella
I have no doubt Bea and Sam's guests will notice and appreciate these personal touches that reflect their cultural backgrounds.
Moving forward in your wedding planning, be sure to take note of your cultures. As you begin your new family, hold on to those cultural nuances that make you who you are, and celebrate your combined cultures as often as possible so that your children will inherit your cultural pride.
