An Orange Beach wedding is featuring something almost as a big as the love between the bride and groom. The marriage of Gail and Joe Nettles today, June 13th, 2009, featured a wedding cake; it’s one you’ve probably never seen before. It’s a giant omelet. It’s a large version of Tacky Jack’s “Farmer’s Omelet.” The huge breakfast took more than eight hours to cook and build. It has more than 1,400 eggs, almost 100 pounds of cheese, and 600 potatoes. The bride and groom say it’s the perfect way to celebrate their special day.

Ok, my first thought was, “8 hours to cook and build? What kind of food safety was involved (or not involved) in prepping and serving that?” Would you want to partake of a wedding omelet consisting of 1,400 eggs and 100 pounds of cheese that took 8 hours to cook and construct?
