The weekend of October 11 and 12, 2008 was wet and rainy. Just as you can't predict whether or not every meticulously planned detail of your wedding will go off without a hitch, you can't predict the weather.
I truly hope this weekends married couples had wonderful wedding days despite the fact that the skies opened up and did not close until Monday!
I would like to congratulate the newlyweds on their big days and also on keeping up the spirit on the wet rainy weekend!
Jenny and Christopher- Wexford Plantation Club House- Hilton Head, SC
Jenny and Chris elected a 3 tier textured fondant covered wedding cake adorned with live calla lillies.
Erin and Chris- Windows On the Waterway (Hilton Head Plantation), Hilton Head, SC
Erin and Chris are such a sweet couple! They chose a 3 tier square cake finished in butter cream and intricate paisley patterned filigree piped onto the corners of each tier. Chris also wanted a fun St. Louis themed grooms cake. I hope they enjoyed their cakes and their day!
Ashley and Richard- Country Club of Hilton Head- Hilton Head, SC
Ashley and Richard had a beautiful wedding with deep rich hues and shiny textured fabrics. The deep chocolate brown of their linens paired with the whites and ivories of their flowers and decor really transformed this venue. Ashley elected a traditional design to mimic the bead work on her gown. There was a mixture of White Sugar Roses, White Sugar Orchids and White sugar leaves to decorate this cake.
Ashley also wanted to surprise Richard with a Rocky themed grooms cake. He is obsessed and once said they will name their first child Rocky. I hope this grooms cake was a peace offering and a great compromise between his love for Rocky and sparing their first born! Congratulations guys!
Amy and Steven- October 12, 2008-Country Club of Hilton Head (Hilton Head Plantation)
Amy and Steven's wedding was "Beach Chic". White and Sage green filled the room. It was very important to Amy to have live flowers on her cake. In fact, that was the only "MUST" she gave me! Her cake was a 3 tier round, finished in butter cream (with rounded edges) and decorated with live white callas, mixed greens and white chocolate sea shells. I enjoyed creating their simple elegant wedding cake and very much enjoyed the opportunity to work with them!
Ashleigh and Matt- Beaufort Waterfront Park- Beaufort, SC
Ashleigh and Matt are awesome! I have known Ashleigh for more than a year now since she is the former private events director at The Country Club of Hilton Head. Ashleigh and Matt were so gracious and appreciative of every vendor who helped piece together their wine themed wedding.
Their cake was a 3 tier square in ivory butter cream. Decorated with a vine/grape piping, sugar grapes and sugar cherry blossoms in an asymetrical cascade. I did not have the opportunity to photograph their cake. Camera problems mixed with the tight delivery schedule forced me to pick my battles (get the cake there now or take a picture) I chose to get it there! :) Hopefully their wonderful photographer will provide me with a print as their cake was truly beautiful and unique. Any how, Congratulations Ashleigh and Matt!
30th Anniversary Cake- Hilton Head, SC
A couple visiting Hilton Head in celebration of their 30th Anniversary were surprised by their friends with an anniversary cake special for the occasion. Happy Anniversary!
