LONGWOOD, Fla. —
Authorities in Seminole County have released new bodycam footage of the night they say a bride and caterer laced wedding food with marijuana.
The video, which can be viewed in full above, shows deputies approaching the newlyweds following the Feb. 19 event at The Springs Clubhouse in Longwood.
The deputies are heard telling the caterers they need to take dishes and food back inside.
“Yeah, don’t put anything away yet,” he said.
Deputies ask the bride and groom if they authorized the caterers to use the drugs.
“Apparently, supposedly, your food had cannabis inside it, did you guys authorize that?” one deputy asks.
“I have no idea,” the groom says.
“I just need a yes or no man,” the deputy says.
The groom says no, and the bride shakes her head.
Officials said multiple people were sickened. One man who called 911 said he “felt like he had drugs inside him” and several guests told first responders the food they had eaten was laced with marijuana.
The deputy is heard explaining to the bride and groom the severity of the situation.
“The fire department is seeing a few people up at the entrance that aren’t feeling good. We might be transporting more people to the hospital because of this,” he said.
Wedding guest Miranda Cady told WPBF 25 News’ sister station WESH 2 News in Orlando that she was very affected.
“I thought I was having a heart attack. My heart was racing and before I went to bed that night, I actually slept in my car right on-site,” said Cady.
Cady said a friend at her table suspected it.
“He’s like, ‘Are we stoned right now?’ And everyone was just kind of looking around each other laughing and we absolutely were. We were high as a kite, out of our minds,” Cady said.
That bride, Danya “Shea” Glenny, 42, and the caterer, Joycelyn Bryant, 31, have both been arrested and face felony charges of reckless tampering, culpable negligence and possessing marijuana.
An attorney representing the bride told WESH that he and his client are not commenting on the case.
WESH also reached out to the caterer, Joycelyn Bryant of Joycelyn’s Southern Kitchen in Orlando, and did not receive a response.
