Classic, elegant and romantic are just a few words that I would use to describe Jennifer and John’s wedding. Their lovely wedding was held at Chateau Morrisette Winery in Floyd Virginia.
For the wedding cake, each tier was covered in a rustic buttercream design and fresh flowers were added to the top and sides. The cake was displayed on a white pedestal stand and set up in front of double door leading out onto the indoor terrace. On the inside: Vanilla bean cake with vanilla bean filling; Strawberry cake with a fresh strawberry filling and Lemon cake with lemon curd.
Jennifer also wanted to incorporate a grooms cake for John into their reception. I created a simple two tier naked cake covered with fresh berries. I just love the custom cake stand that she provided for the cake display. Vanilla cake with white chocolate filling and a fresh raspberry puree was enjoyed by the guests who had a slice of the grooms cake.
Lastly each guests enjoyed a custom made Virginia shaped cookie as a favor to take home. As take on the "Virginia is for Lovers" theme I placed a pink heart over Floyd on each cookie to symbolize their love.
And a cake cutting picture because that is my favorite part :) This photo doesn't disappoint, I love John's expression!
