Not sure how much of her wedding was actually GF and vegan, but the article nevertheless gives some good exposure to vegan catering/eating and shows its gaining popularity!

The day of the wedding, I think it was, my mom was watching Jane Valez Mitchell, who basically thinks she's all that and a bag of chips, and she was commenting in a very rude tone about how weird Ms. Clinton's wedding choices were and that she didn't want to eat stupid vegan food at a wedding and how inconsiderate it was, **** like that. It pissed me off like no other. Way to be an intolerant *****. It was her wedding and her day and anyone who doesn't like it can just not go. Asshats.

/End rant.

I had no idea Chelsea was vegan. Reading the article, I'm glad to hear that this stuff is becoming more common for caterers.

I thought Chelsea was a vegetarian.

8/3/2010 is the last time I consumed meat.
8/4/2010 is when I became a full blown Vegetarian and I couldn't be more proud.

She is a vegetarian, I believe, not a vegan. But she did still have some vegan food (though not all vegan, I don't believe.)

Jane Velez Mitchell is a vegan, why would she be saying that? Do you mean your mom was commenting on the food?

Nah, it was JVM. I must have missed her sarcasm...? I generally don't like her/find her annoying, so that explains it. =P

Well, I'm glad. I was hoping you weren't calling your mom the b-word.

Ha! Yeah, pretty far from vegan...

The sweet treat was reported to have sat four feet tall and was made with 360 organic eggs, 50 pounds of sugar, 45 pounds of gluten-free flour, 30 pounds of butter and bittersweet chocolate, and was decorated with about 1000 sugar flowers!

I didn't even know she was vegetarian though, that's cool.
