Houston Wedding Cake Designers at the I Do! Wedding Soiree

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

There are few things in life quite as sweet as saying “I do” to your partner on your wedding day! Your wedding cake is the one element of your wedding that might give that moment a run for its money. 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! Wedding Soiree, where two of Houston’s most beloved special-occasion bakeries will be serving up their wedding dessert specialties.

Both Dessert Gallery Bakery & Cafe and Susie’s Cakes & Confections are in the process of creating beautiful, personalized wedding cakes and desserts exclusively for our signature I Do! Wedding Soiree coming to The Corinthian on Tuesday, Feb. 28th. You’ll also have a chance to sample sweet treats from Jackson and Company, our exclusive I Do! Soiree caterer (be sure to check back here next week when we offer a sneak peek at Jackson and Company’s full Soiree menu of decadent food and wine pairings!).

Blush, Ivory, Gold & Sage Wedding by D. Jones Photography

Tuesday, May 3rd, 2016

“Although I didn’t start off liking Jimmy (due to the fact that he was a minor league baseball player and I didn’t like athletes), I apparently was won over by his great dart skills,” says Houston bride Alex. The pair may have two different stories about how their love story began while they were interning for the Houston Texans, but they can both agree that, ultimately, they were inseparable. “Our wedding was a dream come true. We’ve never felt more loved or special,” recounts Alex. “Our officiant was Jimmy’s best friend, so that made the ceremony more personal. It was an incredible feeling.” We can’t begin to tell you how breathtaking Alex looked in her lace gown from Weddings by Debbie. We could go on and on, but we’ll let the couple’s beautiful photos from D. Jones Photography do the talking. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
