So, imagine my pure glee to sample one this weekend from the fabulous cupcake delivery service Cupcakes Gourmet. We send flowers, fruit and cookies, but cupcakes??? Genius!Cupcakes Gourmet, based in Malvern, PA, serves up a variety of different mini cakes for delivery including mouth watering flavors such as cafe au lait (which I tried), dark chocolate mint and peanut butter. You can deliver a dozen of these bad boys nationwide for $24.99 plus shipping. Tell me what person wouldn't be totally ecstatic by this box of pure happiness:
But the fun doesn't stop there! Cupcakes Gourmet also specializes in weddings and special events. Regular cupcakes are $3.50-$5.00 each and mini cupcakes are $1.50-$3.00 each, before set-up and delivery. I know the obvious idea is to use cupcakes in lieu of a wedding cake, but my favorite idea is to wrap the minis individually as favors!!!

We also caught up with Sweet Maria herself (couldn't miss a chance to sample one of her out of this world cakes!) and Aurora photography. Check her blog; she has some amazing shots of the fashion show that took place later on that day.
Both caterers spoke of the incredible architecture and how much they loved doing weddings at the Palace Theater, whether full out on the stage, or with mixed locations between the grand foyer (for cocktails and dancing) and mezzanine upstairs for dinner. The Poli Club is also sweet for smaller parties.
I left the event truly captivated on how different and fabulous the space is and how much I would love to do a wedding there, so of course I called to get all the info. Rental fees range from $2500-$9500 depending on the day of the week and space desired. For specifics, see the on-line brochure or contact Mike Cammelletti via email or at 203-755-8483 x 108.

On a fun Friday morning, I am excited to bring you our second installment in our series devoted to fashion forward wedding footwear! Allow me to introduce you to Kate Spade Gracious! Hello beautiful! And is purple not one of the hottest colors of the year? I think so!
While browsing My Glass Slipper, a great resource for traditionally styled bridal shoes, I happened across Gracious, but in color! I was so excited to see their introduction, but then read that they will be stocking this shoe in white and ivory only...but of course. Fear not ladies, Gracious will be available in June, so keep your eyes out for these pretties.
What I love most about Kate Spade is the attention to detail and feminine designs. I just happened to wear a pair myself for our recent headshots (which we will be blogging soon!). The Gracious, in particular screams "Perfect for your Purple Wedding" to me as it's use of various shades is exactly what we aim for in wedding decor. Eggplant, Lavendar and Plum, the complimentary mix in a color palette gives depth and variety.
Swoon away ladies!

In particular, many of our brides have rings that were designed to look like estate pieces by such designers as Tacori, Ritani, and Daniel K. Although that doesn't necessarily answer the question, does it matter if it was previously owned?
