The Summer Wedding was a May Arts Ribbon Affair!

The striped ribbon was the inspiration for the Bridal Cake

The Plan:
The theme was simple elegance with bling, bling and details, details, details.
Our first decision was the color scheme and it was not a difficult one since we both love cream and black.  Our inspiration was the wonderful May Arts striped ribbon( 365-2-10 ).  The signature ribbon was used throughout the wedding and reception.  Church programs were elegantly displayed in wire baskets that were completely covered in solid black ribbon accented with cream and black dot and striped ribbons, and crystals. 

My goal was to tantalize all of the senses by planning a South Texas Fiesta with the guests floating around the different areas of the beautiful McNay Museum in San Antonio, Texas.  Incredible food stations and wonderful aromas of various foods were present in all areas.  The visual effect was exemplified by unbelievable floral designs that were literally sculpted.  The background for the floral designs was a combination of different textures in the fabrics and ribbons. 

The Bridal Cake       

Butter cream, pastillage, and fondant were used to create the magnificent Bridal Cake.
The guests were treated to the Sweet Romance Pastry and Candy Shop after the bride and groom arrived.  Take home pastry boxes and bags were also provided.

I surrounded myself with a fabulous team that worked seamlessly to produce the
perfect wedding day for my Sara and Ross. A huge “Thank you” to all friends, family, and Wedding Team!
