Cacal-Mruz, Renaissance Hotel, 3/28/9

It may have been a rainy day, but it didn't dampen the celebration of Lois Cacal and Matthew Mruz wedding. Their reception was held on the 25th Floor of the Renaissance Hotel. Windows everywhere ... it provides an awesome view of the city of Atlanta. Their cake fed 102 ... and they had enough seating for 180. Not enough cake you say? You are right, that's why we had two quarter sheet cakes and one half sheet cake in the pastry kitchen (for extra servings).

Speaking of cakes .... their top cake was 1/2 chocolate and 1/2 marble cakes filled with Bailey's; the middle cake was Vanilla filled with fresh sliced strawberries; and the bottom cake was 1/2 red velvet and 1/2 vanilla filled with cookies n' cream.

Lois used some vendors I had not been aquainted with: Go with the Flo DJ; JK Dallas Photography; and Kristina Armstrong, DOC. One vendor I was very familiar with was Heather Oliver of Stylish Stems .... and as usual, the reception flowers were beautiful.

When I went back to pick up the plateau, John (the DJ) had the joint jumping, and I got a chance to congratulate and hug both Lois and Matt (Lois' dress was beautiful). When Matt hugged me, he told me that my advice to him (when he dropped some fabric swatches off last week) came in handy ... I told him that "if something doesn't get done (in time for the wedding), no one will notice except him and Lois" ... and it's true .. so don't sweat the stuff that doesn't happen as you had planned.

JK Dallas Photography ( provided this awesome cake shot ... thank you.

Congratulations, Lois and Matt !!!!
