Because of our deep respect for the Earth and all of its inhabitants, we are both vegetarian, leaning heavily towards vegan, and thus did not serve any animal products on our special day. We had a wonderful feast prepared by Daily Harvest Catering.
The highlight of the party was a musical extravaganza, featuring our talented friends, family, and ourselves!
Our headline act was Bekka's Frogland Orchestra. Read more about Bekka and her froggy friends!
