Jacqueline & Shawn's wedding

Just a little over a year ago we made a wedding cake for our neighbour's daughter Renee, and yesterday Renee's younger sister Jacqueline also had her big day and married her soul mate Shawn. Hubby and I were happy to be a part of the celebration and attend the wedding.  Jackie approached me a few months ago and said she loved her sister's cake and asked if we could make the cake for her reception and of course we were thrilled to.

We took the pictures at the venue once we set up the cake shortly before the reception.  The design was from a picture that Jackie had seen and loved.  The navy blue ribbon was supplied by Jackie to match her bridesmaids dresses along with the blingy brooches. And the rhinestone studded initials were a nice touch as her choice of topper.

To achieve this design without excess cake the bottom square tier is a covered cake dummy.  2 tiers of red velvet cake with cream cheese filling and 2 tiers of lemon cake filled with lemon curd and white chocolate mousse made up the 4 octagon tiers. The top tier along with the 3rd down were covered in edible crystals.

Shawn's dad entertained us with 3 songs before dinner. He has an amazing voice, it was a nice gift for the bride and groom and all of the guests.  Jackie looked radiant and so very happy and Shawn so handsome and proud.  Jackie also received a wonderful surprise gift from the girls she taught in dance class. They were adorable and did a great job with their performance. It was not only entertaining to watch them perform a dance for Jackie & Shawn but we also saw the love and respect they have for their teacher Jacqueline.
We had a wonderful time at the reception, great friends and great music. Thank you for letting us be a part of your big day.

Congratulations Jacqueline & Shawn!
Best wishes for a beautiful future together.
