VooDoo I do? - Bridezilla or Doughnut Diva?

Have I got the destination wedding idea of all ideas - The "VooDoo Doughnut" wedding. Yes indeed; just picture yourself in beautiful Portland, Oregon. Your immersed in a community steeped in culture, blanketed in green and surrounded by beautiful waters. Home to a heaping of liberalism, dedicated cyclists, foodies, and a vibrant, hip, music & nightlife scene; not to mention my daughter, "Kate the great", and soon to be resident; graduate son, "journalistic/multi-media - Matt".

Most of all, Portland is home of "VooDoo Doughnut"; famous for it's de-funked Jägermeister and NyQuil doughnut (so you can't put drugs or booze in doughnuts?) Okay maybe you've heard of VDD, especially after the king of all foodies, Anthony Bourdain, taped a segment there? But what you may not have known is they do weddings. Starting at $25. for a "intentional commitment" which is a non-legal wedding for those just "trying" the wedding scene out, up to the "Whole Shebang"; this includes airfare, hotel, legal ceremony, chapel, doughnut centerpiece & coffee. VDD states that a bridezilla & groomzilla tolerance fee is extra.
If you just happen to be in sticker shock from your quote of a $20,000 wedding gala, think VooDoo; with it's cock-n- balls, triple chocolate penetration, and dirty snowball doughnuts. What screams marital bliss more than this? The magic is truly is in the hole.

ding Chapel is at 22 S.W. Third Ave. in Portland, OR. You can call them at 503-241-4704. They're open from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m. (that's not a typo). They open at 8 p.m. Thursdays-Saturdays.

I'm fairly certain good doughnuts would beat out 90% of the wedding food I've had the "pleasure" of eating.

That is so great! How FUN!!!!! You really can't go wrong with doughnuts and/or cupcakes for any occasion really. Some people do a wedding "cake" out of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, just stacked up. :o)

this is definately one of the craziest things I've ever heard of. I would never in a million years put doughnuts and weddings together!!

I forgot to say that it is a very, very funny story and congrats on your great kids.

Averill is so spot on that their doughnuts would beat most wedding food. They do!!!
I can only eat half of one but they're worth it. Whether a wedding or a nosh for the atmosphere & people watching Voodoo is a must for a visit to Portland.

That is hysterical! Leave it up to Oregonites (I always knew ya'll were strange)....Oh wait, did you say "voodoo"??? Guess us Cajuns can be blamed for this one. LOL
