While we waited, I got a chance to chat with the DJ (Chris Meeks) and some of my favorite servers at Park Tavern. Everything was going well, the ceremony had begun, then we heard that someone had fainted. I think it was one of her bridemaids, but I'm not sure ... so after a little delay, the ceremony finished and the tranformation from ceremony to reception began.
I had quite an audience as I constructed the cake ... hearing comments like "I had no idea they were put together on site ... thought they (cakes) arrived all put together" to "I just love watching that cake show". I was even asked it was ok if they watched as I constructed .... as some of you know, I worked for Publix for a couple of years (in the bakery, of course) and got used to people watching as I decorated cakes ... I also taught for a couple of years. So, having someone watch me work is not a problem.
Christine wanted a simple, yet elegant look for her cake .... bordered in platinum/silver ribbon, and my signature flat finish, we let the cake floral decorate the cake. I got a chance to see both Christine and Joshua ..... they looked terrific and very happy. Art Pinney (www.artpinney.com) was the photographer for this event and got an awesome shots of the cake ... he put a light behind the cake !!!
Best wishes to you both, Christine and Joshua ... see you next year for your anniversary.
