When I first met with the bride and her mother about 6 months ago for a consultation I automatically knew that I really wanted to book this wedding! They were fun, creative, and full of excitement for their big day and being from Texas and having a wedding here in California they had done their homework and found Courtney Toney, from Joyful Weddings & Events, to help plan for their wedding. I can’t stress enough how important it is to have a fabulous planner, whether for the whole wedding process or at least just for the day of…they can make your wedding 10 times more enjoyable, creative, and memorable. Courtney recommend Carissa, from JL Designs to our clients too and they fell in love (like they always do!). So now I was really wanting the job and luckily they wanted me too! This was such a fun wedding to plan for and was full of pops of color, fresh flowers, and cute details. When I got to the venue I was blown away with the set-up that Courtney & Carissa had pulled off…it was just perfect! Here are some fabulous photos from Melissa Kelsey Photography of the day…enjoy!
Here are some photos of the adorable couple!
And more details from the gorgeous day…
Now check out the cutest candy bar you have EVER seen! I thought Courtney did an amazing job with the set-up of this!
I was so excited for my dessert display because I knew Courtney was making me a fabulous backdrop and Carissa blew me away with the wheat grass and fresh tulip display for my cake stand to sit on…how amazing it that!?! I wanted to pull together all the fun pops of color and make this display delicious eye candy! The bride loved the cake I designed while I was in Ron Ben Israel’s class last year, so since I don’t like copying exact cakes that I have done before we switched it up by changing around the color scheme, flowers, and details…I loved how it turned out and was so excited once I put it on the cake stand!
For the mini desserts we did monogram sugar cookies, mini key lime pies, passion fruit, coconut, macadamia nut tarts, mini cheesecakes with fresh raspberries, and cake lollipops.
Love these ladies…
And of course I had to snap a photo of my fabulous business partner, friend, and master cake lollipop maker…my wonderful mother!!!
I don’t know how I ever thought I could run a whole store/business without her! She, along with my whole family, has been more amazing than I could ever of hoped and dreamed for. After pulling 36 hours straight last weekend without sleep (yes, I overbooked) I was even more grateful for the immense amount of help my mother has been!
