I had the utmost pleasure in meeting Angela at the Here Come the Brides bridal show in March at the Factory at Franklin. She was looking for ideas for her upcoming wedding with her friend who was searching for vendors for her daughter Caitlin’s wedding. I booked both of the weddings shortly after the show and have been thankful to meet such fantastic people ever since.
Angela has an incredible story of faith and friendship that brought Joey to her through church, as she had been widowed several years before. I will keep Angela’s story private of course, but will share that I cried during our consultation. She is a true testament of how the Lord works in mysterious ways.
Angela loved Caitlin’s cake that was made with swirled cheesecake buttercream and wanted something similar but different. I think we succeeded in doing just that. Angela wanted an initial as her cake topper but didn’t want anything blingy that she was finding online. I assured her that I would make one out of gumpaste that would be perfect.
Angela’s cake was to be ivory with fondant anemones with charcoal centers accenting sparsely. I loved the way it looked, but the ivory topper I made seemed to get lost so I changed gears on the morning of the wedding and made a classy topper with a black “M” on an ivory background. I think it was absolutely perfect.
Angela and Joey’s cake was tiers of Chocolate cake and Pink Champagne cake, all covered with Cheesecake icing. Angela had fallen in love with the Pink Champagne flavor at the bridal show and knew it was exactly what she wanted for something different at her reception.
Angela and Joey’s reception was held at the Wine Loft in the Gulch. This was my first time at the venue and it was absolutely spectacular. I can’t wait to go back with my girlfriends and hubby. It is classy and comfortable with oversized modern furniture and a gorgeous loft. It’s one of those places you walk in and feel happy to be there. I could see why they chose such a perfect location.
Angela, thank you for sharing your story with me and for choosing me to make yours and Joey’s day a little sweeter. May you always keep your faith in one another and knowledge that everything happens for a reason.
