Mini cupcakes with seashells

Girls 1st Birthday - Aqua & Purple

What a fun celebration for a sweet little girl! The dessert table included a 2 tier lavender and aqua “Under the Sea” themed round cake with fondant circles to represent “scales”, seashells and even seaweed. On top of the cake was a mermaid cake topper.  A few of our favorite elements from this beautiful ocean party are:

The amazing cake
The aqua, lavender and purple color scheme
The tassel garlands
The “sand” under the cupcakes that was actually brown sugar
The seashell themed desserts
The tall white seahorses
And the cutie pie turning 1!

Jessica & Matt

Jessica and Matt’s wedding at the Deerpark Restaurant on the Biltmore Estate was gorgeous and romantic. The deep tones of purple combined with lush and over the top floral centerpieces set the tone for this elegant affair. The ceremony was held in the center courtyard and afterwards guests made their way into the Lodge Room for cocktail hour while the wedding party went to the Biltmore mansion for pictures. When they were finished the wedding party came back to be announced into the courtyard and Jessica and Matt had their first dance together as husband and wife. The night continued with delicious food and dancing under the starlit sky, what a fun evening!

Sweet 16 Birthday Party

Ciarra had one amazing Sweet 16 Birthday party, red carpet and all at the National Conference Center in Leesburg, Virginia! Guests were greeted by the paparazzi who snapped pictures, while discussing their designer labels. When Ciarra and her court arrived they strolled down the red carpet and through the balloon arch to officially start the party. The birthday cake was made by Sweet n Sassy even tasted good enough for the stars! The fun and dancing went on into the night as Ciarra brought in her 16th birthday with a bang, we hope this was an event to remember!

Samara & Kyle

Samara and Kyle had a beautiful ceremony at Colonial Avenue Baptist Church in Roanoke, Virginia. The bridesmaids had long, dark purple dresses and gold lanterns were hung from the pews. After the ceremony guests travelled to the Holiday Inn ballroom. Hundreds of candles lit the room with a soft glow, creating a warm ambiance. Roy “Papa DJ” and Russell Prusak of RSP Entertainment did a fabulous job, as always, they know how to keep everyone dancing and put on a great show. The Virginia Tech wedding cake make by Kelly Cakes intrigued all of the guests, and had the most adorable cake topper of two Hokie Birds dressed as bride and groom. Congratulations Samara and Kyle, it was a pleasure to be part of such a special wedding!

Sabrina & Rob

Sabrina and Rob’s wedding was an experience no one could forget. No matter how creative or organized one is, nobody can stop Mother Nature and illness; a bride’s two worst nightmares. However, not a soul could have handled it better than this loving and relaxed couple. The morning of the wedding, Sabrina fell so ill from food poising that it kept her from having the strength to get ready for her own wedding. To add to the complications, the couple had planned on having their ceremony outside on the beautiful steps of the Jefferson Memorial, but the chance of rain was 100% with no signs of stopping. Her close family and friends were busy by her side coaxing her back to good health. With the help of Rachel Naft of RMN Photography the couple had a beautiful ceremony at Union Station (since they had a D.C. marriage license) and then went back to the Crown Plaza, in Silver Spring, Maryland for the ceremony for their guests and the reception. The impressive flowers were designed by the bride and put together with the help of a volunteer association and Diamond Events. The Groom even set up the lights himself, which were rented from Atmosphere Lighting and really enhanced the room. The DJ, Tony Gaetano of Black Tie DJ’s got the party started with fun music and amusing props for the bridal party to wear. To top the night off, the decorative and delicious candy bar opened for the guest’s to take home a box of their favorite goodies. There was nothing stopping this couple from getting married. They shall love each other in sickness or in health, rain or shine. Sabrina and Rob, you were a true joy to work with.
