Modern Art Gallery Wedding with Food Trucks: Margot & Jared

Our Love is Loud

March 12, 2014


The wedding of Margot and Jared was held at Artwork Network, an art gallery in Denver. The ceremony was officiated by the groom’s younger brother, Kyle. But this wasn’t the only thing that made their wedding special, unique and personalised. “I think from the minute we started actually thinking about what the wedding would be like, we both just wanted it to be fun”, explained Margot. “A party for all of our closest friends and family. As unstuffy as possible. From there the details just fell into place. Food trucks were wayyy cheaper than traditional caterers, we both love pie, we both love whiskey, and we love throwing parties.”


“The two weeks before the wedding were an incredible blur”, she continued. “I lost my grandpa a week before the wedding, and while it was a time of loss, it was also an opportunity to get to spend time with my family. There were also a thousand things that were so last minute – decoration crafts I meant to do but didn’t have the time (plus the tutorial for them was crap), a friend ran out to get the garter and ring pillow last minute, I forgot a bracelet I was supposed to wear, the bartenders forgot champagne flutes so there was no champagne toast, blah. But at the end of the night, not any bit of that mattered.”


“Jared’s brother Kyle wrote a really incredible ceremony. We asked him to do it and I think he was nervous, but he wrote something personal, quirky, and perfect for us. I couldn’t have asked for anything better. We wrote our vows to each other, and I really tried my hardest not to cry, but I totally did. We danced to Thriller and our friend grabbed the mic and belted out ‘I Believe in a Thing Called Love’ by The Darkness, it was hilarious and perfect.”


The couples’ biggest expenses were alcohol (it was a party after all!) and photography, but they saved money by having food trucks instead of traditional wedding caterers! “The food trucks saved us a lot of money in the end, and having pies and donuts instead of cake really saved us some cash”, she wrote. “We never really had an official ‘sit and eat cake now’ time, which totally was not missed. The food trucks were a weird concept to explain to my family at first, and I also needed some convincing that it would actually work, but damn. Their food is so good. It was perfect.”


“I heard this a thousand times while planning, but… Do what makes sense to you as a couple”, she advised in conclusion. “Do what you like. Have fun and don’t stress over the tiny details. Also hire wedding coordinators or have a friend help. They did a lot of the dirty work I didn’t want to/ have time to do, and asked questions I didn’t even know I needed to answer. Plus they knew all of my other vendors which made the day run super smoothly.”
