First off, I have never met a more enthusiastic bride than Mariam! She was so incredibly happy and energetic right from the start that I knew she would be a pleasure to work with. She loved every cake cake flavor but knew she wanted something just a little different to not only give her groom a flavor that he loved, but to create a unique combination for her guests.
Mariam and Scott’s reception was to take place in the Susie Gray Hall at the Scarritt Bennett Center in Nashville. The architecture and beauty of this place is so incredible, I loved delivering the cake! Mariam had given me an invitation and wanted me to copy the delicate grape clusters and scrolling onto the cake. They were inspired by the verse of John 15:5 “I am the vine; you are the branches…” so there were delicate branches in the flower arrangements throughout the reception site.
As I mentioned, Mariam wanted the cake to be unique and Scott’s favorite ice cream is Ben and Jerry’s Chunky Monkey so we brought the two together for a truly mouthwatering combination. Mariam chose to make all three round tiers of her cake alternating layers of chocolate and banana, filled with chocolate hazlenut creme. She chose traditional vanilla ivory buttercream to cover all. She wanted a few deep burgundy gumpaste roses and white cymbidium orchids with burgundy accented throats to set off the delicately piped grape clusters on the cake.
The final product was a beautiful custom design captured by David Molnar Photography in a way that I could not possibly duplicate. David and Tammy have a fantastic way of capturing love digitally so click the link above to see Mariam and Scott’s day as told in their eyes. The photos I am sharing of the day also are the credit of their work. Thank you so much for sharing the wonderful images with me.
Mariam and David, abide in Him and bear much fruit forever!
