Carolyn and Andrew had them most stunning wedding reception at the Hershey Lodge recently. When Carolyn told me that Todd Spitler was their photographer, I knew their photos were going to be spectacular. Todd was kind enough to share all of the photos on this post with me. Get ready for some serious eye candy!
When I met with Carolyn and Andrew they had selected a bicycle made for two theme incorporating deep purple and chartreuse. Their invitation had an adorable tandem bike illustration on it and I suggested trying to find a cake topper with would tie in the theme into the cupcake tower display. Carolyn found their bicycle cake topper on Etsy and it was the perfect addition. Little details make everything just a bit more special and personalized.
The sweets display covered an 18 foot serpentine table and some of the cupcakes were plated along with chocolate dipped pretzel rods, marshmallow pops and cake pops.
The cupcake flavors included chocolate cupcakes with chocolate ganache filling and peanut butter frosting, Red Velvet, vanilla cupcakes with raspberry buttercream frosting and white cupcakes with strawberry buttercream frosting.
Marshmallow and cake pops are always a yummy addition to a sweets table.
I love this stunning photo and I want one of those delicious looking cocktails 🙂
The beautiful florals were designed by Flowers by Cherylann. The table numbers incorporated the tandem bicycle image from their invitation…just adorable. The reception room was pretty dark, but Todd came prepared with the right lighting to make sure every photo looked perfect. Here’s a tip…make sure your photographer is prepared to shoot in any lighting situation…especially a dark room.
When designing your centerpieces, mixing high and low arrangements on the tables creates a beautiful visual effect. Isn’t this arrangement is just gorgeous?
The eggplant colored bridesmaids dresses were so pretty.
Here is the beautiful couple…they look so happy together.
Congratulations Carolyn and Andrew! It was so much fun working with you.
Here’s a special note Carolyn’s mom emailed me right after the wedding…so sweet of her!
