Green, Grey, & White: The Perfect Color Scheme

Well, as many of you probably know I am a big fan of the color grey!  I have tons of clothes that are grey, my office is painted grey, and I LOVE making wedding cakes with grey on them.  This wedding was such a dream to do…not only was I blessed with a fabulously nice couple, but they also were smart enough to hire on Courtney, from Joyful Weddings & Events, Amy Squires & Co for photography, and & Kristin from The Treasured Petal.  All three ladies did a gorgeous job with this wedding and Ynes & Ryan were simply beautiful together!  Here are the details from their special day!  Thanks to Amy & Lane for the wonderful photos!

I just LOVE the backdrop Courtney made for me!

Of course I had to take some detail photos of the cake too, so here they are.  We made a magnolia sugar flower for the top tier and accented the cake with ribbons, fondant lace, and pearl accents.  This was actually one of my largest cakes to date…once it was on the table it was definitely taller than me!

I hope Ynes & Ryan have a Happy New Year!  Thanks so much for letting me be a part of your special day!
