Whether you opt for an ornate fondant design, buttercream with fresh flower accents, hand-painted sweets, bedazzled layers or a creative dessert table filled with your favorite candies and sweets in the colors of your wedding palette, your wedding cake and wedding desserts should be as beautiful to look at as they are delicious to eat. And you’ll find plenty of sweetness to delight you at the upcoming I Do!

And just in case they weren’t sure whether they’d prefer a head of flowing waves or a glam updo, a sun-kissed glow or shimmering bare shoulders, a full set of lush lashes or just a bit of enhancement, our guests could experiment with looks, get advice and try out products from Nyoka Gregory Beauty, WINX Lash Studio, KAX Tanning Souffle and Hotze Health & Wellness Center.
