Jenny Perez and Jordan Adam Brown Fenton are faithful attendees of the “work parties” that are held each week at the Sam Simon Center—PETA’s Norfolk, Virginia, headquarters. In fact, they’re such dedicated volunteers that when it came time to plan their nuptials, the couple knew they couldn’t let something as mundane as a wedding ceremony get in the way of their weekly date to work on projects that help animals—so they brought the festivities right to PETA’s HQ.
Fellow work partiers pitched in with planning the wedding and reception and purchased the decorations and flowers to decorate the Sam Simon Center.
Volunteer Joshua Burley provided the music.
Another volunteer, ordained minister Preston Saks, officiated the ceremony.
The bride, who was given away by her mother, wore silver.
The flower girl wore purple.
The guests dined on vegan burritos donated by Burrito Perdido …
… and some Salvadorian fare prepared by vegan Chef Cascada.
There were also vegan cupcakes in a rainbow of colors and variety of flavors from My Vegan Sweet Tooth.
PETA provided the cake as well as wedding gifts from the PETA catalog.
Even the cake topper was made in the vegan spirit.
“We are surrounded by activists and people who care and defend innocence,” said the groom. “The value of [this occasion] wasn’t money. It was love, it was kindness, and it was decency.”
Congratulations, Jordan and Jenny!
