Sneak Peak of Hillary and Aaron

We cannot wait for Hillary & Aaron's wedding weekend, here is a sneak peak! Caribbean Catering, Blue Water Weddings and John Rudolph Designs will be creating a very unique and beautiful wedding this weekend. Hillary and Aaron of Chicago are having the wedding of their dreams this Friday.  Hillary was inspired by the inside/outside feel of a lavish dining atmosphere under the stars for her destination wedding here in the Florida Keys. We will create a sophisticated experience with romantic draping, soft lighting surrounded by a shimmer of rose gold. Hanging florals and crystal chandeliers will evoke the royalty of an English Garden ambiance. The simple elegance and romance of this design will be a show stopper. Check out these inspirations boards and stay tuned to see the real thing: sneak peak

Wedding Trend: Bridal Cape

Love the idea of something trailing behind you as you walk down the aisle, but want something more unique than the traditional veil or train? Capes and caplets seem to be one of the most popular (and unexpected) trends from the most recent bridal runway season. I am looking forward to seeing some of these at our weddings soon, we love this look. Perfect for those with a flair for the dramatic.  Designers featured gowns with these lacey and romantic cover-ups in their latest wedding dress collections. And the adornment isn't just for fashion-forward brides looking to make a style statement on their big day — capes are a great alternative for ladies who need a modest layer for a religious ceremony but want the flexibility of removing that layer for the reception.

And while a blinged-out, full-length layer is certainly glam, there's more subdued, sheer lace caplets out there, too.

Here, are few beautiful capes we have found, take a look. We certainly hope this runway-inspired trend continues to pop up in the wedding world!

Ruffle Cake

A huge trend we are seeing a lot of this year is......the ruffle cake! It is a beautiful and modern design and works well with so many different styles from rustic to elegant. Here are some photos of ruffle cakes we have done this year. As ruffles, frills and extensive layers splashed across the runway from designers, it was inevitable that this epitome of femininity would continue its reign in wedding style.

For a seriously elegant look, skip the bold patterns and add-ons in favor of subtle embellishments with allover sugar ruffles. The look is light and airy and needs very little added detail. Finish it off with fresh flowers in between each tier or a few sugar flowers on top.

New Desserts!

One trend going on right now in weddings is the dessert display. Traditionally dessert at a wedding is, of course, wedding cake.  A growing trend in weddings this year is to offer your guests a sweet treat in the form of a stunning dessert display at your wedding. Cupcake displays were big last year, but dessert displays will be the big treat for guests this year, focusing more on cookies, specialty desserts, and of course, a wedding cake or two! With so many different tasty options out there, it may be hard to decide what to offer for your guests’ indulgence. With this trend picking up, we have just added some new dessert options to our menu.
