Rustic Wedding Charm


besscakecutI recently did a dessert bar for a beautiful bride at Mountain Lake Resort, a hotel you may be familiar with from the movie Dirty Dancing.  It’s stone walls, mountain setting and the wonderful fall foliage made for a very quaint and charming venue, and I was thrilled that the bride chose a rustic elegance for her theme. Scattered about the tables were antique mason jars filled with bright wildflowers, branches and logs held place cards…there was even a huge table full of apples!

When it came time for desserts, she asked for a variety of cupcakes, some cheesecakes, and several pies, as well as a small slice cake.  What I came up with was a two tiered rustic frosting with a trail of fresh flowers cascading down the front and side.  It really fit the bill!

Here are a few of the excellent photos taken by the photographer Laura Matney, who owns Laura’s Focus Photography.  She does amazing work!
