Pretty at The Point

Last night was Angela's reception at The Point. We love The Point -- they do such an excellent job at making things look classy, you can't beat the view, and the money made from the events held there goes straight to the Huntsman Cancer Institute to fund additional cancer research. Not a bad way to kick off married life. Good karma.

Angela's wedding used lots of white with splashes of purple and black. You can't get more simple than the bouquet she chose -- white vendela roses and a sprinkling of purple mini calla lilies. Clean, sophisticated, no bells and whistles. Her cake, on the other hand, was a completely different story. This cake was huge. I remember her telling me in one of our conversations that more than anything, she wanted a tall cake. She definitely accomplished that! We literally had to stand on a chair, on our tip-toes just to do the top tier.

This cake turned out gorgeous. The top tier consisted of white roses, purple freesia, and myrtle. Between the separated tiers, we packed more white roses, purple roses, purple freesia, white Oriental lilies, seeded eucalyptus, and myrtle. This was a special cake for one of our staff members. Why? Because it was Assistant Designer Kristin's first solo cake! Kristin joined our team at the beginning of October and has proven herself to be an incredibly valuable asset to our company. She's worked hard at her training these past five months, and while there's more to go, this cake was an important step she's been working up to. Congratulations Kristin! You did a fantastic job!

Coming up next week, Haley's reception at The Old Meeting House. 14 pinned corsages, 20 wrist corsages, 34 boutonnieres... I'd better get started on those bows!
