WEDDING: Jones-Smith Wedding, Dunwoody Country Club, 3/19/11

BRIDE and GROOM: Diana Jones and Greg Smith
VENUE: Dunwoody Country Club

What do you get when you take a country club setting, add the largest full moon (supermoon), and an adorable couple ? You get one incredible wedding.

When I walked into the Grand Ballroom it looked beautiful already. The band had arrived and were setting up, and the florist had dropped off the cake floral. I looked to my left to see an assortment of "southern" sweets and a candy bar ... then noticed the table centerpieces .. in lieu of flowers, this couple ordered an 8" cake (from another vendor) for each table to serve as the centerpiece - a great idea ... (not ordering from another vendor, but using a cake as a table centerpiece). Now I understand why the initial wedding cake order decreased. They had plenty of dessert. : )

Speaking of cake ..... an all over scroll design was ordered for the wedding cake with white hydrangea and pink bunch roses here and there. It looked soft and elegant.

The groom is a huge Cincinnati Reds fan ... we were originally going to do a different logo on a cake, but a couple of weeks before the wedding, it was changed to this 3-d version of the mascot. It came out adorable and I hope he was pleased. The only thing NOT edible was the hat (and the hydrangea).

These were the cake centerpieces provided by another baker ... again ... great idea (not ordering from another vendor, but the cake as a centerpiece is a great idea)!!!
