I believe it refers to something quite different. I am not all that convinced it involves food, but that is my personal opinion. Often times I see the artist's depictions of a long table set for the bride, on a nice beach. I think it's quite creative, but not very realistic. I base my opinion on John 6.
Joh 6:35 And Jesus said to them, I am the bread of life: he that comes to me shall never hunger; and he that believes on me shall never thirst.
Joh 6:51 I am the living bread which came down from heaven: if any man eat of this bread, he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world.
Joh 6:52 The Jews therefore strove among themselves, saying, How can this man give us his flesh to eat?
Joh 6:53 Then Jesus said to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, Except you eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, you have no life in you.
Joh 6:54 Whoever eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, has eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.
Joh 6:55 For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.
Joh 6:56 He that eats my flesh, and drinks my blood, dwells in me, and I in him.
Joh 6:57 As the living Father has sent me, and I live by the Father: so he that eats me, even he shall live by me.
Joh 6:58 This is that bread which came down from heaven: not as your fathers did eat manna, and are dead: he that eats of this bread shall live for ever.
Joh 6:59 These things said he in the synagogue, as he taught in Capernaum.
Joh 6:60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
Joh 6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said to them, Does this offend you?
Joh 6:62 What and if you shall see the Son of man ascend up where he was before?
Joh 6:63 It is the spirit that vivifies; the flesh profits nothing: the words that I speak to you, they are spirit, and they are life.
Joh 6:64 But there are some of you that believe not. For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not, and who should betray him.
Joh 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I to you, that no man can come to me, except it were given to him of my Father.
Joh 6:66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
Joh 6:67 Then said Jesus to the twelve, Will you also go away?
Joh 6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go? you have the words of eternal life.
Joh 6:69 And we believe and are sure that you are that Christ, the Son of the living God.
