Kissed by Cupid Styled Dessert Buffet

Our Kissed by Cupid Styled Dessert Buffet was inspired by our love of gold, romance and delicious treats. Everything from our love struck backdrop details, homemade sweets, and birch display accents were DIY creations. From gilded Oreos and feathers, to ethereal handmade wings, this buffet is our interpretation of a one of a kind Valentine’s Day celebration. 
Our bride was adorned with a dreamy floral halo, dainty gold jewels, a vintage fur shall and ruffled skirt for the occasion. The soft florals and pink ombre cake added a hint of Valentine’s romance. 
For this shoot we also wanted to incorporate the wintery feel of a crisp, snow filled Valentine’s Day. The faux fur shawl and birch display stands add a little warmth and charm. 

Overall we wanted to capture the magic and romance of being love struck this Valentine’s Day. 

Check us out featured on Ruffled Blog and a DIY tutorial on how to make our lovely homemade gold wings.

kitschy & delicious wedding sweet buffets

When Crystal {Distinct Occasion's} first sent us inspiration for Rachael & Joey's vintage inspired candy land wedding, we were swooning. Rachael is a lover of vintage furniture, kitsch and whimsical design. She wanted her dessert buffets to be a spectacular surprise for her guests, and that they were. We snuck into the foyer while guests were enjoying the reception and staged 3 epic dessert tables.

Everything was baked by us from scratch with love, using grandmas homemade pie crust for 200 delectable mini pies and pie pops, gorgeous pastel macaroons, cake truffles, donuts, and tons of other yummy goodness for their 400 guests.  We made colourful banners and dyed doilies to match the treats as a finishing touch.

My personal favorite moment from this day was the gorgeous Rachael's reaction when she saw all our hard work at her dream wedding!

The lovely day was captured by Renaissance Studios and featured in February's Special Edition Wedding Bells Magazine.
