Graeter's Fan Submission
By: Dale K., Grand Rapids, MI
Graeter's sincerely thanks the newly happy couple Kelsey and Jay, as well as Kelsey's father Dale, for this touching story on how the couple opted not to serve guests wedding cake but instead Graeter's French Pot Ice Cream.
Graeter’s wonderfully replaced wedding cake at our daughter Kelsey’s wedding! Her groom, Jay, grew up loving Graeter’s Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip as a favorite Cincinnati Food and they had their hearts set on serving Graeter’s – instead of wedding cake – at their wedding in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
It went deliciously! Carol, from the staff at Graeter’s main offices agreed to sell us enough serving cups so that each of the 200 guests could eat their ice cream in style; the staff at the local Meijer stores here in Grand Rapids allowed us to special order 100 pints of a variety of flavors! So, rather than serve cake at their wedding, Kelsey and Jay L. delivered 4 different pints of Graeter’s to each table of guests so that everyone could serve and sample their own.
The attached pictures show the bride and groom and a few other pictures of how Graeter’s played an important supporting role to a wonderful day!
Thanks to everyone at Graeter’s and Meijer stores. Your ice cream got rave reviews from many family and friends who had never even tasted it before.
