Introducing the NEWEST little member of Middle Aisle

I'm going to get a little personal for a minute because I am absolutely infatuated with this little guy. After 9 months of being preggo, doing weddings, being at expo shows, etc (Did you see that crazy girl with the giant belly waddling around? Yup, Hi, that was me :) Well, the little man has finally come!

This is my sweet little Baby J.

It's amazing how having something so sweet in your arms makes things coming into focus in your life and see the big picture. He has given me a renewed excitement for weddings. After all, first comes love, then comes marriage.... and well you know the rest. ;)

It's amazing to create weddings that start a new chapter in a couples lives. There will be so many beautiful days ahead of them and I'm grateful I get to be apart of one of them.

Lots of love and happy planning!


New Take on an Old Treat

I usually can't eat just one cupcake. Especially if they are a stuffed cupcake! (Be honest, can you if no one was looking?)

They are my favorite. But cupcakes at weddings have been, well how do it say it nice, OVERDONE lately. They are a cute treat and they will always be adorable, but why not think out-side-the-box if you are thinking of serving these scrumptious little treats at your wedding. 

Introducing: The cake shooter!

 Delicious little layered cakes served in a push up style. 

(Remember the ice cream push ups when you were a kiddo? If I remember right, the Swann Man would bring them. :)

You can buy them pre-made at CakeShooter for $3 a piece. They ship nationwide.

Or how about take it a step further and make it a station at your wedding?

You can purchase empty clear plastic push up canisters and have a server at a station filling them with an array of different sweet layers that your guests get to pick out. Have custards, fresh fruit, cake, candy bar pieces etc. It would make such a fun and interactive wedding dessert! I would wait in line all night to get one.

You can purchase 100 of these empty shooters for $52.80 at JBPrice.

If anyone plans on trying this out, let me know how it goes. I am dying to try it at a wedding!

Happy Planning.


Classic Red, Black & White Wedding

Your classic red, black and white wedding will always be classic combination in weddings colors. This is an adorable example of a wedding we did at Astoria this past month in those colors. The bride and groom were great to work with and it was fun to get to do a wedding over at the new venue Astoria. 

The aisle was lined with red rose petals and glass cylinders with rose petals and floating candles. 
I especially loved the branch ceremony pieces by Bloomers. Such a simple design with such a big impact.
The food was done by Katering Koncepts. The whole staff was great about helping with everything they could and making sure everything stayed stocked and fresh. I just love working with them.
One of the most adorable and unique things at Astoria are the pastry cases. These pastry cases had cupcakes, brownie bites and ice cream for ice cream sundaes.  Guests got to come to the cases, pick what they want, and get served like a cupcake/ice cream parlor.
I absolutely love signage at weddings. I believe it is a necessary at every wedding event. Whether it is your names, menu's or the itinerary for the night. It creates such a uniformed look without a large expense. This wedding was so easy to incorporate signage everywhere that matched their invites. 
The cake was done by Bridal Cakes by Yvonne. It was two different flavors and alternated between square and round layers.
The ballroom at Astoria.
The parlor at Astoria.
Candy bar in the parlor by the Grooms cousin.
Kory and Aurora saying their "I Do's."

Kory & Aurora, It was so much fun to get to know you both and your families! The whole day was so much fun and we loved being able to be apart of your special day. We wish you the best in your life together!
