A Look Ahead: A Winnery Wedding

Oh weddings, how I love them and all the fun that goes along with each one. I am currently planning and coordinating the reception for a wonderful couple. They are hosting their celebration at Prairie Moon Winery in Ames, Iowa. WHAT A COOL PLACE!!! This rustic hall, complete with distressed wood beams and twinkle lights, comes with a majestic window wall. These floor to ceiling windows makes their vineyard a perfect backdrop for any occasion. I only have to add a few strands of lights to frame out the space. Deep purple and burnt orange will really add to the already wonderful wood tones. I am really excited about this one. The guest book, cake table, gift table, and various other hints of decor will be adorned in purple ribbon and hints of burlap. I am also making their cupcake stand cake topper. If that makes any sense. Pretty much it will be a 6 inch round cake that sits on the very tippy top of this awesome cupcake holder. We picked out their cake and frosting the other day and I am pumped to bake this one! I will be sure to add pictures of the event, but the picture above is a little teaser. We have about seven weeks until the big day! I also get to hang out with a buddy all day! The photographer is also a co-worker of mine. Oh yes, I got a second job, I am now the official music booking agent for Cafe Milo. I love it!

I also got to bake some serious cupcakes for my roommate, Renae. They were triple chocolate cake with coffee buttercream frosting. I only modified it a small amount and it still tasted great! Well, I didn't actually have one, but my roommates eating 12 of them in a span of less than 24 hours confirmed that they were good.
