My Best Friends Wedding – Dessert Bar!

Jessica and Mark at the Sacramento LDS Temple

So one of my bestest friends Jessica got married to her very sweet husband Mark May 15th at the Sacramento LDS temple. She then had her Reception later in her moms backyard. We have been friends since High School; I was a loser and she was so cool and opinionated! 😀 I looked and still do look up to her and how she stands up for herself and for what she believes in. We both have very hectic life styles so try to get together once a month with our other bestie Meagen for a girls night. Jess and I can go months without talking and we just pick up where we left off. I love that because I don’t have a lot of time to invest in friendships, unless it’s work related which is good but it’s nice to not be “all work”.

Jess and Mark wanted a very simple but elegant wedding where they could take the time to enjoy everyone’s company. It was casual but they really took the time to talk to everyone that came to celebrate their big day. She wanted to do a Dessert Bar instead of a formal dinner. Well for those of you that don’t know I LOVE to bake! I may not be the best and I definitely know “Real Professionals” that could do it better but I still enjoy it. So I was in… she tried to be silly and say she was going to do it but I told her I got this! I recruited Brandon’s mom Vivian (one of the most AMAZING women you will ever meet!!!) to help out. Jess and I worked out the menu and Vivian and I got to work. We did it ALL…

We had mini cheesecakes, cookies (Chocolate chip, lace, strawberry filled heart sugar cookies, Peanut Butter), chocolate dipped strawberries, chocolate dipped pretzel chips and shortbread sticks, fruit bowls, mini cupcakes galore (strawberry, chocolate, spice, white), mini brownie bites, mini lemon topped cake and candy. It turned out so pretty if I do say so myself! All these pictures were done by my amateur photographer husband. Brandon enjoys taking pictures from time to time, and no we will NOT be offering photography so no worries! I really enjoyed being a part of her special day. Mark is so good to her and I love Jess as if she was my sister. I love seeing her so happy! Congrats Mark and Jess!!!

Featured Vendor: Tinywater Photography – Gabe and Karen’s Wedding

So in our prior post “Karen and Gabe’s “Entertaining” wedding at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento” we talked a little about the photographers we got to work with, Caroline and Daniel. We really think they did an awesome job so wanted to spot light them. 🙂

Browsing through their beautiful website we learned a lot about them. A little about Caroline and Daniel is their uniqueness with their photography. “Classically trained artisans, Caroline is educated as a designer who marries the mood of the clients she photographs with individualized concepts for each shoot, while Daniel complements sessions with his own offbeat yet romantic style and caters to the business side of the studio.”

We so enjoyed them and recommend taking the time to look at their website and blog to learn more about them and see how they capture so many gorgeous weddings!

They also sent us pictures from Gabe and Karen’s wedding which we just had to share. And a link to Karen and Gabe’s slideshow
