Don’s commitment ceremony

I met Don, who owns Don Blyer Events, early this year about designing a unique cupcake display for his commitment ceremony. He came well prepared with a jam packed 4 inch planning binder and a list of the best vendors in the area that he was planning to work with. Needless to say, I was very excited about being a part of the amazing day.

The ceremony took place at their Lancaster home. No detail was missed in the planning. Guests entered on a red carpet which set the tone for the evening. All of the stunning photos on this post were taken by the talented team of Clint and Tony with Tony Gibble Photography. I had so much fun watching them shoot and they are just so nice!

The ceremony took place in their beautiful Japanese garden.

They are really two very special people. There were so many personal touches that made the ceremony very touching. I especially loved the reading from the Velveteen Rabbit.

The cupcake tower was inspired by the pattern of the beautiful linen from Special Occasion Linens. A deep teal with shimmery gold threading and sequins made a stunning background for the tower.

The cupcake decorations included embossed circles in coordinating colors with shimmery dust brushed on them.

The cupcake flavors included Red Velvet, Madagascar Vanilla and a chocolate cupcake with chocolate ganache filling and raspberry Chambord buttercream frosting.

In addition to the bar, they offered two signature cocktails which were amazing. The Something Blue created by Dean Oberholtzer with The Belvedere Inn was pretty spectacular!

The artsy florals by Premier Florals fit in perfectly with the decor.

Catering by Artful Events was not only beautifully presented but delicious.

Needless to say the cake cutting was a hoot!

A little messy but yummy!

Thank you for having me be a part of your amazing evening!
