Congratulations May 16 and 17 Newly Weds!!

With the potential for rain looming, these beautiful couples kept their spirits and held the showers at bay for the most part! Saturday was beautiful- not too hot, not too dreary...barely any rain to speak of. Sunday...was well, a little different. Mary and Bill are a wonderful couple who had to put their plan B into action. You may not have had that outdoor ceremony you so hoped for, but in the words of my wedding planner friend, " A wet knot is harder to untie than a dry knot" ;)

Onto the photos!

Molly and Bryan- May 16- Belfair- Bluffton, SC

Molly and Bryan were married at beautiful Belfair. Their wedding cake was a 3 tier fondant covered design. The finish was pearlized satin complete with whimsical ribbon roses and sugar monogram letter topper. This design was brought to me as an idea and recreated for them. This cake was actually one of my top choices for my very own wedding cake- so you know I LOVE it!
The grooms cake is an ode to Georgia Bulldog fans out there! Go Dawgs!

Lisa Manning of Southern Weddings coordinated this day flawlessly and seemingly effortlessly. It was truly beautiful!

Corrinne and Justin- May 16- Colleton River- Nicklaus Clubhouse- Bluffton, SC

What sweethearts!!! I adore Corrinne and Justin and hope their wedding and their cake was everything they hoped for and more! This 4 tier square in pool blue and ivory was complete with pin cushion design and stripes alternating between the layers. I created sugar flowers for this cake, tying in their hydrangea and roses from their reception decor. Beautiful cake, beautiful couple... what a happy ending (or beginning)

Joei and Gary- May 16- RiverBend Lodge- Bluffton, SC

This couple pulled in everything that makes them....well them, and tied it into their cake design. The cake was the entire wedding. It was the only thing served at the wedding and the very centerpiece (literally, dead center) of the lodge. This 3 tier lilac fondant covered cake was complete with movies, popcorn, soda, sushi, rafts, Mickey Icon, Joei's Winnie the pooh toaster, Pooh and Tigger, Sami and Lili (their poochies), Gary's Mini Cooper, rings, hearts, you name it...it's on there....oh yeah and a little bride and groom! I thought they were great sports to go a little out of the box...I very much enjoyed creating this cake for them!

Abby and Christoff- May 16- Wexford Plantation Clubhouse- Hilton Head, SC

What a beautiful wedding reception designed and produced by Linda Smreczak and her team at Amanda Rose Weddings. The colors and arrangements were perfectly fitting for this couple and the day was truly theirs. They opted for a beach theme cake- very popular for destination Hilton Head weddings.

Erica and Levi- May 16- Private Beach Home- Hilton Head, SC

How cute are Erica and Levi!!? They had a wonderful Hilton Head beach wedding with the reception of close family and friends in a huge beach home rented for the week. Their cake was a 3 tier finished in ivory butter cream with edible pearls, and a gold and ivory filigree ribbon border. Many Blessings Erica and Levi!

Katy and Brian- May 16- Windows on the Waterway- Hilton Head, SC

Katy and Brian are fun and exhuberant! Very laid back and free spirited with the wedding details. Working with Celebration Events to make their Windows on the Waterway reception a success was fitting for them. This couple went beachy without the beach and nautical without the anchors and sails. A whimsical free flowing design was perfect for their cake. Wave pattern, bubbles and baubles and their custom k + b monogram decorated their 3 tier cake.

Congrats Katy and Brian!

Mary and Bill- May 17- Marriott Resort- Palmetto Dunes- Hilton Head, SC

Mary and Bill chose Hilton Head Island for their destination wedding. Hoping for blue skies with white puffy clouds is all they could do. Mother Nature had different plans for Hilton Head that day, but Mary and Bill- you are married- together forever and get to vacation on Hilton Head! That sounds just great to me! Congratulations and many blessings!

Happy Anniversary Amanda and Michael!- May 17, 2009.

Amanda and Michael were married May 17, 2008 and enjoyed a gorgeous 3 tier cake by Sheri's Edible Designs. They were fortunate enough to be able to return to Hilton Head for a few days to celebrate their anniversary. They returned to Sheri's Edible Designs in search of an ode to their wedding cake. A fresh version of the cake they enjoyed one year ago (down to the minutes) that day. As they were standing in the store, they explained exactly that time one year ago they were saying their vows. Michael kindly reminded Amanda that she was 10 minutes late to the ceremony so it was not actually down to the minute! Ahhh, sweet love. I have a special place in my heart for these two and wish them nothing but the very best. I hope you come for a fresh cake every year. I will be here waiting!
