Breakfast Weddings and Events

The most important meal of the day takes on new meaning


Why breakfast weddings and events?  As far as weddings are concerned, perhaps Harry sums it up best in the movie When Harry Met Sally when he says to Sally “… when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”

While we can’t say for sure, this must be one of the best reasons for getting married in the morning: You don’t have to wait another day to get married. Pauline Parry and her team at Good Gracious! Events have been seeing more brunch weddings. This one, which took place at Marvimon House in downtown Los Angeles, was especially charming.

Brunch, being the couple’s favorite meal of the day, began after the outdoor morning ceremony with tray passed gourmet hors d’oeuvres …
