This week Brooke & Pam gab with Brianna Webster, owner of the catering company Geschenk Fare – and we do not hold back!
Bri tells us all about being a bridesmaid for a woman she barely knew, hiring shirtless bartenders who bring their own boomboxes, and what it was like to cater Pam’s wedding!
We also answer tough questions about brides walking down the aisle alone…and what to do if someone in a wedding catches on fire.
Take a listen! All our episodes are available on iTunes, Google Play and Podbean!

Should a bride starve herself to fit into a tight dress, or just buy a roomier one she likes a little less and skip the dieting?
My uncle has a side business of being a wedding photographer on the weekends. During the busier summer seasons, he works larger weddings and picks up a second person to help with getting all the shots he needs for these more demanding, expensive clients.
Years ago, I was in between semesters in college, and I got the gig to be his assistant. The cash was good, and as a naturally tech savvy guy, I was pretty comfortable using his digital cameras, even though they were a pretty new thing to most people.
It was a blur of a summer. Just a flood of white dresses, boring speeches and awkward dancing. But one wedding I will never forget. From the moment we showed up to snap pics of the bride getting ready, she was really rude to my uncle and me. We weren’t her first choice for the photographer gig, and she let us know it. I guess her mom had chosen us and was paying for it as a gift. But my uncle, being a total pro, just rolled with it and told me to try my best to stay quiet and out of the way. Continue reading
New Trend alert: Veggie Bouquets!
Yes, you read it right, instead of roses and peonies, brides are now opting for herbs and kale and broccoli! You don’t have to be the daughter of a farmer to enjoy a bouquet of cabbage and citrus as you walk down the aisle. Continue reading
I was a bridesmaid in my cousins wedding. The day of the wedding, the bride and all 8 bridesmaids got ready in a room down the hall from the atrium where they were to get married. As per usual, everyone was running late and we realized no one had time to pick up food because everyone was in some sort of state of hair/makeup/spraytan/spanx prep. So we ordered a bunch of burritos to be delivered to the venue.
When the burritos arrived, we realized that we didn’t want them in the room because it was filled with hair spray and spray tan. (Somehow we were cool breathing that, but not eating it. Wedding day hazes, they do wonders!) The burrito guy was nice enough to set up the burritos in a nice little row on a table in the hallway.
About 30 minutes later, I snuck out into the hallway, and saw some random dude eating one of the burritos while rummaging through our chips. RUDE!
