Kate Spade Inspired Bridal Shower at Greenhouse Winery in Irwin, PA

Blush, Black Lace, and Pearl Wedding at Rizzo’s in Crabtree, PA

Lauren knew what she wanted when it came to her wedding cake.  It was clear to me from our initial emails that she gave much consideration to her wedding theme, decor, and overall “look.” She had planned a blush pink, black lace, and pearl inspired […]
