Yoo-Choe, Chateau Elan, 9/26/9

Who doesn't love Chateau Elan .. it's simply beautiful ... and served as the site of Tammy Yoo and Kiman Choe's wedding ceremony and reception. It was a rainy afternoon, so the ceremony moved from the Matise Lawn to the indoor Atrium. The reception was held in the Elan Ballroom.

Tammy planned this wedding from out of state (Washington, DC). She changed the design of her wedding cake three times ... each cake was beautiful on its own, but when she suggested the third and final design, I asked her to stop looking. I was really looking forward to creating this cake for her. I've done hundreds of cakes, but this one came out beautifully and I have named it "The Harvest". The bottom tier was fake ... the other 3 tiers were alternating vanilla filled with raspberry buttercream and Lemon filled with raspberry. The pears are real and miniature in size, I created marzipan apples and peaches and each layer was surrounded in beautiful floral. I am honored to have created this for Tammy and Kiman.

In addition to the cake, I also created her favors .... a red velvet cupcake frosted with cream cheese icing (naturally) and packaged in a white box, tied up with a purple ribbon. One was placed at each place setting.

Floral: Carla Duncan (On Occasions of Atlanta)
