Two weeks ago we were tagged in an Instagram Post by Rescue Chocolate.
It was a photo of their yummy, vegan chocolate goodness at a recent wedding their product was used at. Rescue Chocolate
uses a portion of their chocolate bar sales to save animals in shelters. After chatting with the bride in the comments thread of the image, we knew her wedding story was a perfect fit for Black Sheep Bride’s Wedding Wednesday series. See what she had to share:
“We had a destination wedding in the middle of nowhere, Oregon. And our wedding weekend getaway was at The Historic Balch Hotel
. Our dogs are a huge part of our lives, but they couldn’t (and didn’t want to) make that long trek, so we found Rescue Chocolate
and had their faces put on delicious chocolate bars for all of our guests. We also chose three non-profit animal welfare groups to donate to in lieu of gifts, and bought every fleece blanket at Wal Mart for guests to cozy up with and later donated them to local rescue groups. And in keeping with true Oregonian fashion, we used freeze dried flower petals for most of the decor so no matter what the wind picked up and blew away, it would be earth friendly! As for our bouquets, we used lots of beautiful, hand-picked wild flowers and a few random fillers from Portland Wholesale Flower Market.”
