From the moment I walked into the reception hall at Lake Tyler Petroleum Club, I could feel the love and excitement for Lindsey and Marcus' big day. It was a gorgeous and sunny East Texas day and the lake was sparkling!
The reception hall had a great view of the lake and the gazebo where Marcus would first see Lindsey in her dress. The tables were set with care by Brooke (owner of RSVP Events) and Kathy (Event Manager with Lake Tyler Petroleum Club) down to the color of the napkins at each setting that matched the groomsmen vests. It all looked so beautiful!
I also met photographer Lindsay (owner of Lindsay Steele Photography) who was so nice and had a beautiful smile. She worked very professionally and I could tell that she knew exactly what she was doing.
When I had met with Lindsey, she had asked me what I thought about succulents in cakes. I had never mixed succulents with food, so I was very excited to try this!
I was thrilled to also provide the boutonnieres and embellishments for the bride and groom cake as well.
Lindsey chose 2" Mexican Snowballs partnered with dried lavender from Lavender Falls Farm, bound with petal colored ribbon to match the groomsmen and usher vests.
I was so excited to try something new, and so happy with how they all turned out! The lavender, which was food grade, smelled just heavenly. Pair that with the soft purples of the Perle Von Nurnberg and the soft greens and blues of the Blue Prince, Morning Beauty, Scheideckeri and Superbum, it was amazing. The cakes were provided by a friend of Lindsey and smelled delicious! It was so hard to work that closely with cake and not get to take a bite!
The most exciting creation was the bride and groom cake. I used Baby's Breath and the dried lavender, along with some of the same succulents i had used in the cake centerpieces.
I wish Marcus and Lindsey many many happy years ahead. Have a great honeymoon! <3
