It takes two to make a thing go right..

Hi Friends! Happy Hump Day!

I finally got my hands on some pictures  – from one of my very first brides! Taryn Josephs married her husband Darren Jablow, at the Gansevoort Turks & Caicos this past May and it was just the 2 of them ..

… and the entire Grace Bay Beach!

I loved the simplicity of it all: Taryn’s calla lily bouquet made by Flowers by Environmental Arts, their private 2-top on the beach, and of course, their cake! They opted for a vanilla cake with a smooth swiss meringue buttercream finish.

Sometimes when we are planning a big event, we get so caught up in the details, that we forget that maybe sometimes all we need is a loved one, some pretty flowers, and a small cake 😉

Taryn planned her special day all on her own, but if you are interested in hiring a professional wedding planner, here are some that I have worked with here in Provo:

Mary and Luise at NILA Destinations;
Keisha at Destination Turks & Caicos; and
Teresa at Tropical DMC.

Wedding Cakes / 01

Last week, one of our brides chose a plain white buttercream wedding cake with flowers, and although the big and fabulous themed wedding cakes are making a come back, sometimes simplicity works best –  I think it turned out beautiful.

Guest Cake Designer

A few weeks ago, we had Stevi Aubie, from Hey There Cupcake, visiting us at from scratch. Stevi is a former interior designer turned cake artist and we’ve always been a fan of her modern cake designs.

We worked on ganaching cakes, covering cakes in fondant, hand-painting, sculpting, and creating some beautiful sugar flowers – and so much fun! We had a great time working together on some unique orders for our clients.

She was an inspiration for many of the cakes on our launch earlier this year, so it was especially exciting to finally meet her.

We’re so glad she made it here, shared some of her tips and tricks and got to know this little bit of paradise.

Launch Party

Thank-you to all who came out to support us at the launch party for From Scratch! All the hard work and preparation really paid off with beautiful displays with help from other wedding vendors who are also based on the island. It meant so much to me so see so many people come out to support my new business. These amazing pictures were taken by Frank of Paradise Photography.
