Willow and Michael Hoffman were married at the historic Venetian Pool on May 22, 2010, and Eggwhites had a wonderful time planning their unique wedding with them. Our Culinary team worked with Michael and Willow to create a “farm to fork” menu tailored to their green and vegan lifestyle. The program was designed to pair the natural aesthetics of the Pool with the purity of the raw foods and completely natural ingredients making up their menu.
Upon arrival, the Bride and Groom and their 160 guests enjoyed the tranquil beauty of the Venetian Pool as they sipped freshly made Chilled Cucumber Mint and Lime Juice and Lightly Spiced Carrot Juice “cocktails”.
The heartfelt ceremony was held over the free-form coral rock lagoon with the 25 foot cascading waterfall in the background.
While mingling by the emerald green waters of the Pool, family and friends were served a variety of vegetarian hors-d’oeuvres including Tapenade-Stuffed Shitake Mushroom Caps, Falafel, and mini Greek Spanikopitas.
Guests were then welcomed into the whimsically decorated dining area where they were introduced to the specialized culinary stations featuring locally and organically grown ingredients.
Guests began their meal with a Salad of mixed greens, beets, mushrooms, purple cabbage, carrots, scallions and cucumber, topped with a choice of Coconut Lime or Citrus Garlic dressing.
The main dining stations included gourmet raw “Pasta” made of Zucchini, Parsnip, Daikon and Yellow Squash, tossed by our Chef in either a vegan “Alfredo” sauce prepared from Brazil Nuts or Raw Marinara. Chefs also prepared a tasty Pan Asian Stir Fry with a selection of shrimp, straw mushrooms, snow peas, broccoli, bamboo shoots, red peppers, baby corn, and much more.
A beautiful and delicious three-tiered Vegan Carrot Wedding Cake sealed the couple’s most special evening with sweetness. Our Chefs greatly enjoyed utilizing their culinary talents to create Michael and Willow’s first meal together as husband and wife!
