Today's wedding cake:
For their "Art Deco Temple" Wedding Cake, Monica and Jack chose:
Chocolate Truffle sponge, paired with White Chocolate and Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mousse, and our Luscious Orange Suzette, made of Orange Sponge with White Chocolate Mousseline!
The cake was iced with Rolled Chocolate...YUM, YUM!
Here are some pics of the cake set up...overtime, I've developed "nerves of steel"...and lots of planning and preparedness doesn't hurt either!
Thank you Kathy Ray for documenting this process!
The Hall of Mirrors at Hilton Cincinnati Netherland Plaza never ceases to impress, especially when its beauty is highlighted by Goodwin Lighting,
Amazing team of vendors on board at this event, for a FABULOUS client: Goodwin Lighting, The Remains Band, Mandy Paige Photography, Two Little Buds Florist, Prime Time Party Rental, and the top notch team lead by Kathy Ray!
Below is an image (from the super talented team from Mandy Paige Photography) who captured the first moment when the couple saw the cake :). I was fortunate to be there, since this was a room turn event. You can't imagine the sense of fulfilment that moment like this produce in me :)
This couple is just adorable, and I feel blessed to have worked with them and their families.
I can only wish them many many years of happiness and togetherness!
