Amy, Lucas and Amy’s dad, Victor, met with me at the end of January for their Easter weekend wedding. Amy had been referred by a co-worker and upcoming bride of mine. Amy and Lucas knew going in that they wanted cupcakes. They were getting married at Boxwell Boy Scout Reservation and the theme of the wedding was simple shabby chic with mason jars, burlap, sunflowers, etc.
Amy and Lucas chose to have 16 dozen cupcakes in four different flavors of Sour Cream Almond with Vanilla Buttercream, Red Velvet with Cheesecake Buttercream, Chocolate with Chocolate Fudge Buttercream and Lemon with Lemon Buttercream. Amy wanted her colors of white, avocado and blush to be reflected on the cupcakes and the cutting cake. They wanted a simply decorated 6″ round cake for cutting and photos, which is typical at a cupcake wedding.
I have to say that I was completely impressed with the sweet decor they used for the reception. There was a beautiful quilt hanging outside in a place to take photos, cans with wildflowers and sunflowers adorned the tables and there was an entire wall of photos from the couple’s lives held up with wooden clothespins on string.
I was very familiar with Boxwell from my daughter’s days in ROTC but I had never thought of recommending it as a wedding venue until Amy and Lucas’s wedding. Now I think it’s the perfect spot to recommend to couples who are looking to be closer to nature, laid back, but also a place that can really be decked out in a fun way.
Amy and Lucas, thank you for allowing me to make your day a little sweeter!
