Wedding to the Beat of Their Own Drum

What a fun experience for me! I was contacted by Krystal and Jared who were looking for something different for their small, yet intimate and personalized wedding. Jared is a professional drummer, and Krystal suggested doing a cke which looked like a drum. Through our interactions, we developed the idea of doing cupcake drums with a monogram on them and little drum sticks to match the cake they would cut.

The design for both the cupcakes and the drum cake were a lot of fun, and took a lot of time. Each little drum top on the cupcakes had to be painted with a monogram, edges and bolts piped on and then I had to dip 110 little drumsticks in the coloring. The brackets on the drum cake had to be sprayed with an air-brush after they were molded and had hardened.

The reception was held at Liberty University's Snow Flex Lodge and was certainly an intimate setting. The relaxed yet personal atmosphere made this a unique and special wedding reception. Congrats Krystal and Jared, and thanks for allowing me to be a part of your special day - it was an honor!
