Munaluchi Presents – Serenade: A Curated Couples’ Date

photo: Nana Annan Photography

Remember those curated date nights we hosted across the country last year in time for Valentine's Day? Well they're back!

Serenade - A Muna Love Affair (formerly known as the Culinary Experience) is back for 2017 and promises to be even bigger than last year.

We are in search of engaged couples for a photo and video shoot this February.  If you and your significant other love to eat, mingle, meet other engaged couples and are comfortable being in front of the camera, then you may be just who we’re looking for.  Selected couples will be invited to participate in a daylong shoot in one of the cities listed below for a feature article to run on  At the shoot, you'll enjoy a customized culinary experience, a chance to chat with some of our talented wedding professionals + more.  Up to three couples will be selected per city.

*Travel is covered by the individual couples.  Once you agree to participate in the culinary experience we need your full commitment for the photo shoot date and time.  Participating couples must agree to allow for their images to be used on, on video, and in any advertising materials associated with the feature.
