Clermont pizza restaurant hosts first wedding ceremony in Flippers Pizzeria's history.
Online PR News – 19-July-2011 – – On June 22, 2011, Flippers Pizzeria was home to the first in-store wedding for the Orlando pizza restaurant.
Before tying the knot at their favorite pizzeria, bride and groom, Eugene Amlong and Mayra Amlong were engaged at Flippers Pizzeria.
After their engagement, the couple contacted Derek Way, Flippers Pizzeria Clermont store manager to discuss their unique idea for a wedding ceremony in the restaurant of their engagement.
“When I first heard that Mr. & Mrs. Amlong were thinking about Flippers Pizzeria as the venue for their wedding, I have to admit, it was very unexpected,” said Way. “I wasn’t quite sure how our staff was going to pull this off, but I knew that we were going to do whatever we needed to do to make it a memorable event for the couple.”
According to Way, the restaurant closed its doors for about 3 hours on Wednesday, June 22, 2011, at 6:00 p.m. in the afternoon. Approximately 50 guests attended the event.
“It was a very traditional wedding ceremony, with an officiant, wedding cake, and even a bouquet toss,” said Way. “Everyone was excited to be attending a wedding in such a unique location—and you could definitely feel the love and support from the couple’s friends and family.”
Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed a reception with music and food from Flippers Pizzeria, which included a variety of specialty pizzas, fresh salads, pastas, and desserts. Orlando Catering is an unique specialty of the pizza franchise.
“We were honored that Mr. & Mrs. Amlong chose our restaurant for their wedding,” said Way. “The entire staff was thrilled about the occasion, and we are very happy for the couple. We wish them the best.”
Since 1987, Flippers Pizzeria has been serving Central Florida’s tourists, residents, students, and businesses the perfect pizza while making numerous charitable donations to the local community. Today, there are eleven Flippers Pizzeria restaurants in Central Florida.
