Happy May!!

Is it REALLY May already? It seems we just rung in the new year like....yesterday!

This wedding weekend was very exciting for me. I had the pleasure of working with a few of these clients for more than a year. I was able to follow them in their planning processes and was overcome with excitement for them at the thought of their big days finally being here!

Congratulations!!! I am happy for you, but will no doubt feel an empty place in my heart made of cake now that your weddings have come and gone!!! I wish you all the very very best for the future!

Melissa and Steve- Country Club of Hilton Head - Hilton Head Island, SC

I have been working with Melissa and Steve since the latter part of 2007. Being a destination wedding, plenty of preparation and planning is required. They knew they wanted a blue cake, they knew they wanted beach and they knew they wanted shells. It was just a matter of creating a design that was the fun and laid back beachy feel, only unlike every beachy cake you see. This is what we came up with together. Congratulations Melissa and Steve!

The Shuman's - Fripp Island Beach Club - Fripp Island, SC

The Shuman's celebrated their 10th anniversary with a vow renewal. They are military and 10 years ago, eloped as a young couple in love. Now 10 years and several deployments later, they invited friends and family to share in and witness the love they have had for each other all this time with a "wedding" celebration. Their colors were latte, champagne and ivory with touches of browns and golds. Fripp Island is very beachy and has major private island appeal. The Shuman's wanted a beach feel without the overtly beachy shell cake. Together, we reached this design. Congratulations!

Lauren and David- Palmetto Bluff Golf Grill- Bluffton, SC

Lauren and David are a great couple with very simplified minimalistic tastes. Their wedding cake was a three tier round with a smooth white butter cream finish, fondant pearl border and live gerber daisies atop. I wish you much happiness for the future together!

Rehearsal Dinner Groom's Cake for Mary- Aqua Grille and Lounge- Hilton Head Island, SC

Mary wanted to surprise her fiance with a Boston Red Sox baseball hat cake. The hat, baseball and home plate are all made of cake. I hope this was a great surprise!

Kimarie and Eric - Palmetto Bluff Golf Grill- Bluffton, SC

Kimarie and Eric were married at the Inn at Palmetto Bluff with the reception following at the Golf Grill located inside the May River Golf Club at Palmetto Bluff. They opted for a textured white butter cream finish made to look "messy" adorned with live green cymbidium orchids.
Congratulations Kimarie and Eric! It was a pleasure to create your wedding cake!
