♥ S&B Wedding ♥

My former Pastry Chef Sarah intrusted me with the ceremonial cake and cupcakes for one of the most important days in anyone's life and I was truly honored.  Sarah was the complete opposite of a Bridezilla - she just trusted me to deliver.  And, I felt that I knew her well enough to deliver something that she would love.  (It did help of course that for 3 years we spent 8 hours a day side by side.)

The Couple - Sarah & Brent, two of the nicest individuals and one of the most stunning couples around.

The Theme - classy, full of glamour, yet somewhat rustic

The Backdrop - a movie set, can't you tell from the first photograph by James Hall above?  Actually, it's the Russian River Vineyards off Highway 116 in Forestville, CA, but dreamlike nonetheless! 

The Weather - sunny and warm, in other words perfect

The Ceremony - dramatic, romantic, full of laughter and genuinely heartfelt, what more could you ask for?

The Company - lively and fun!

So now it's time for my part...

The Dessert -
Cupcake Table

I literally baked my butt off for the big day - 180 cupcakes, but it was definitely worth all the hard work when I saw Sarah's reaction to the cupcake table.  I mean, dessert is very important to girls like us.
