August is almost over so yet another busy summer comes to an end. I love August weddings for so many reasons and I can’t help but to show off one of my favorite August weddings held here a few years ago for Tracy & Nick. Tracy went above and beyond in putting love into the details and it showed! Her colors were purples and Black and we added chinese lanterns on everything (and I mean e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g!). Check out the amazing Guitar Hero groom’s cake! And don’t even get me started on how much I loved her florals done by our ever so talented in house florist Stacie with La Belle Fleur. Seeing it all come together so perfectly is always such a treat for me and even better is watching the couple as they get to sit back and enjoy their beautiful special day!!
August is approaching fast and it makes me reflect on one of my favorite August weddings… the wedding of Maria & Mark. The couple was from out of state so alot of the planning was done via telephone and email but they each had such a good eye for design, I knew with each choice they made that it would turn out amazing! Their color scheme was pear green with touches of gold/yellows. Very refreshing! The thing I loved the most? The groom totally took care of his bride. He wanted to make sure everything was as stress free on her so ended up making alot of decisions on the wedding, helped her get ready, and as you can tell in these pictures, his love for her just shined on his face when he saw her walk down that isle towards him. It’s moments like this that I will never forget and truly makes me love my job!!

So, before you go to the consult where you’ll select the cake that will be intensely photographed, a focal of your décor, and the center of one of the oldest wedding traditions (no pressure), here are a few tips to help you prepare for this big decision.
When you first get engaged, it’s one of the happiest, most-fulfilling moments you’ll ever experience. This moment, however, also marks the beginning of one of the busiest times in your life! From the minute you say “yes,” you will be presented with hundreds of decisions, all of which will determine whether or not you achieve your perfect wedding day. “Where do I begin?” can be an overwhelming thought. Here are a few recommendations of things to do when you first get engaged:
