When we think of a classy, elegant wedding, Vanessa and Skeeter’s are definitely one for the books! Planned by the talented Pearl Events and held as the gorgeous Hotel Granduca, vintage and elegance painted the room with pieces of décor from Premiere down to Vanessa’s stunning cream colored wedding gown from Serendipity Bridal.
It was a joyous and tearful wedding as guests gazed over these two lovebirds finally tieing the knot with much love and sincerity. With delicious tastes catered from Hotel Granduca and awesome tunes from the band London Calling, guests were in for a treat as they mingled and celebrated all night.
Speaking about TREATS – perhaps the sweetest treat of them all were the “his & her” roaming candy trays The Cupcake Bar created and personalized just for Vanessa and Skeeter on their special day. Yummy options on Skeeter’s tray were candy cigarettes (a crowd fav!), sugar babies and hot tamales. While on Vanessa’s tray, guests indulged in rock candy swizzle sticks, gummy worms, and skittles – there was surely something for everyone! People enjoyed creating their own candy bag as a late night take away mixing and matching candy from both trays, helping themselves to refills as they snacked all night.
However, the event that REALLY stole the show, was when Vanessa and Skeeter asked to each take a turn passing out the goodies! The crowd’s reaction was priceless and we have never seen bigger smiles on this happy couple’s faces. The Cupcake Bar was ecstatic to play a part in Vanessa and Skeeter’s special day and loved finding creative ways to show off both their fun personality and taste buds in an interactive edible way.

Whim Hospitality have really outdone themselves this time. Adorn was a stunning event held on a sunny January day in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Camp Lucy, with all it’s gorgeous venue spaces, provided a perfect setting for splendor that took place that day.
First, there was a VIP lounge held in ever-so cool Whit’s Inn. Our Cupcake Bartenders donned fluttery gray bridesmaids dresses, courtesy of Melange Bridal, and passed delicate pastel colored candies to the illustrious guests.
The exhibition hall, held in the sunny and airy Ian’s Chapel was bustling with activity as brides, planners, and wedding fans wandered booth to booth. What do you need to create the perfect Hill Country wedding? Unique jewelry, hair and make-up, specialty hats, dapper menswear, darling stationary, bejeweled duds from local boutiques, and of course, cowboy (and cowgirl) boots. This is Texas, after all. The Cupcake Bar went with a mixed metal look– copper linen complements of Whim Hospitality, bronze topping bowls, gold glittery runner, bronze geometric shaped terrariums and decor–and of course, we brought our famous gold shimmer topping! The table was only out-shined by the delicious cupcakes and the smiles they distributed.
Next, guests made their way over to Sacred Oaks for an awe-inspiring fashion show. The models were gorgeous, real, and surely must have felt as good as they looked in the magnificent garments they strutted down the runway! Champagne was passed to guests during the show and what better way to compliment the bubbly than a delectable strawberry cupcake? The Cupcake Bar’s Roaming Treats bridesmaids shimmied over to Sacred Oaks and passed out sweet, pink, mini-cupcakes complete with strawberry buttercream.
Adorn was an event that won’t soon be forgotten, and we have some amazing photographers to thank for capturing the memorable day. Well done, Jessica Frey Photography and Svetlana Photography! You are truly gifted artists that have left us with stunning photographic evidence of a well planned and executed day!
