Vegan Weddings 2017 (Lindsay Jones & Daniel Cano)

These yogi-vegans were brought together by a mutual friend, and their love of healthy living makes them inseparable.

The big day: November 17, 2016
The place: St. Petersburg, FL
RSVPs: 113
Honeymoon: San Francisco and Los Angeles


The cake: Lemon cake with local blueberry-lavender jam filling and lavender buttercream—plus a cupcake buffet
Menu standouts: Edamame dumplings, panko-crusted eggplant with mashed potatoes, vegetable summer rolls with Thai herbs, and toasted macadamia nuts
Guest swag: Caricatures and mini-plants inside Mason jars


Lindsay and Daniel's Story: Set up by a mutual friend who thought these yogi-vegans might be meant for one another, Cano and Jones met over vegan Mexican food—followed by getting their caricatures drawn by a local artist—on a quirky triple-date in Dunedin, FL. A year and a half later, an elaborate proposal over dinner at upscale eatery Plant Food + Wine in Miami included help by the waitstaff; Jones was approached by a waiter saying, “Ma’am, we have a message for you,” followed by Cano proposing on one knee.


The wedding day: The couple selected a lush St. Petersburg park for their nuptials, and hired the same caricature artist who drew them on their first date to create portraits of the guests. Instead of floral centerpieces on their tables, the couple opted for fruit-themed tablescapes—a nod to Dan’s brief stint as a fruitarian.
