WEDDING: Shelton-Nava Wedding, Biltmore Hotel, 6/18/11

BRIDE and GROOM: Courtney Shelton and Miguel Nava
VENUE: The Biltmore Hotel, Georgian Ballroom

This bride knew who all of her vendors were going to be from the very beginning ... She put together quite an incredible team.

When choosing a venue like the Biltmore ... GO BIG for your wedding cake !!! The ceilings are very high. Courtney didn't need 5 tiers worth of cake, so we made one fake, bringing the amount of servings down to the appropriate size ... but she still had the big look of a 5 tier.

The wedding cake design changed a little from the day she signed with me until the day I delivered. It was always going to be 5 tiers, but we removed a design, kept it smooth, elegant, and added an additional bow. LOVE LOVE LOVE this cake. It was so pretty. Can't wait to see the pro shot of it.

Celebrating Miguel's heritage, the Flag of Mexico was a terrific design for his groom cake.

Wishing Courtney and Miguel many wonderful happy years together .......
