Green and White Wedding

As many of you know, I got married last month.  And yes, I did make my own wedding cake(s) and sweet table.

The wedding inspiration was different shades of green, white and paper lanterns.  Decor, signs and invitations were designed by my talented sister Yvonne.
It was a beautiful, warm September day for our afternoon outdoor ceremony.  It was held at Cedar Ridge Creative Center and Botanical Gardens in Scarborough.
We had a cocktail reception in the historic house catered by Daniel et Daniel.  Following a champagne toast, our guests enjoyed the sweet table which I absolutely loved putting together.
The sweet table treats included: S'mores, chocolate covered strawberries, gluten-free chocolate cake, mini strawberry vanilla cupcakes, sugar cookies, zesty lemon sphere cakes, chocolate dipped pretzels, white chocolate truffles, chocolate covered almonds and orange cake bites.  The croquembouche were made by the caterers. 
It was such a perfect day for Steve and I.  We had so much fun and would like to thank our family and friends who were able to join us.
