What’s On The Menu At Adam & Jared’s Big Wedding Day?!

They're in the home stretch to the wedding of the year! They've picked their wedding party, the DJ, the venue and ordered the invites, but there's still a few things left to do! With the wedding coming up in a few months, today Adam & Jared's task at hand is to figure out what kind of food they will be serving at their wedding reception!

You may be thinking "what type of menu are these dynamic, fitness crazed spin instructors going to serve at their wedding?" Well, you're about to find out! Known around the world for their viral Flashmob Spinning Marriage Proposal video, Adam Keller & Jared Marinelli are now focusing on arguably one of the most important parts of their wedding day, THE FOOD!!

"Every wedding I've attended in the past you get to choose chicken, fish or beef. I'm over it," said Jared. With the help of long-time friend and co-worker Liz Gagnon, they are creating a wedding menu that will most definitely be unconventional and most importantly, tasty.

"By choosing Liz we have a guaranteed five-star service and product," said Jared. Liz Gagnon is the Executive Chef at Nature's Temptations in Ridgefield, Connecticut (where Adam used to work) and Adam & Jared thought she was the perfect chef to take their wedding hors d'oeuvres and meal to a whole new level… JOYLICIOUS!

"I get to know the couple and that's how I plan a menu. We picked food that matches their personalities," said Liz. Knowing Adam & Jared, what type of food do you think they will be serving at their wedding? What is the meal Jared said they are not getting married without?! Stick around and find out!

When Music and Cultural Heritage Combine, You Get INTEMPO

In a sun-filled church in Stamford, Connecticut, a small group of young students sit with their musical instruments. Among them are many instruments you'd expect to see in a classroom—like violins and guitars—and also several that you may have never seen before, like the South American Charango and a Caribbean steel drum.
