The gorgeous, picturesque Isle of Capri has made it's way onto our blog! I am so proud to say that I have been here and it is truly unbelievable! Capri is a combination of gardens, high style shops, historic architecture, and of course, the Mediterranean Sea! The natural, rustic atmosphere influences the laid back, quiet attitude of the locals. Numerous celebrities own homes there, and use the island to 'get away from it all.' Big names, like Prada, Gucci, and Chanel, have all set up shop there, bringing luxury to this beautiful island. Being a part of the Italian coast, wine is obviously present, but it is also a part of the region known for producing, the very potent, Limoncello (a lemon flavored liqueur).
Our wedding design begins with a historic, outdoor location and incorporates details that are uniquely 'Capri.' Shades of beige, yellow, and green keep the look natural, yet vibrant, while shades of bright purple are used to represent the gardens seen throughout the island. Not only will the wine, of course, be flowing, but it will also be brought into the design through the cork escort card holders. To incorporate the high style aspect of Capri, the fashion for the event would have to be pieces from designers such as, Monique Lhuillier and Manolo Blahnik. A gown with a vintage, almost antique look, captures the historical feel of Capri. The simple elegance that is seen in the gown would then be mimicked in the cake design. Reminiscent of the Mediterranean Sea, touches of lanterns and finger starfish would also be present. And, the best souvenir for this Capri-themed event, a small bottle of Limoncello!

This week, we are featuring Sweetie's Delights Bakery located in Valrico. Sweetie's Delights is a family bake shop that has become a staple in the Brandon/Valrico area! Out of their super cute, whimsically decorated bakery, Krystal, Karen, and Jessica work together to create sweets for every taste. From cakes, to cupcakes, to cookies, they will reel you in with their sugary pieces of Heaven! Not only do they make amazing cakes and pastries, but they are also known for their 'Whippy Dip,' which is yummy whipped cream that is added to a number of their different specialties. They were even awarded Best Dessert at the 2008 & 2009 Taste of Brandon. Whether it's a wedding, baby shower, wedding shower, birthday, or any other special event, they've got you covered!
You may remember that they made the cake for Amanda & Chip's wedding, back in June. It was beautiful and delicious!
They even sent me home with a bunch of yummy treats to try! I cut them all in half and shared them with the hubs. He said all of them were fantastic, but the red velvet was awesome! I have to agree! :)
Contact them today to discuss your upcoming event!

The color scheme of shades of blue and white is softened with feminine and traditional details. We decided to pull in seaside touches, such as white starfish and coral, to incorporate the feel of the North Carolina coast. An outdoor wedding complete with blue gingham linens, white garden chairs, and white and blue Chinese lanterns, give this design the charming feel of a picnic. To retain the traditional look, we opted for simple flowers like blue hydrangeas and white roses. This is a great translation to a UNC fan's love of the tar heels!

Do you have what it takes to be a part of the UED team? If so, we are seeking an Event Intern.
This position is sporadic in nature and just includes assisting our team on events during the busy wedding season. This is not an "in office" or "business" internship. You will be required to arrive a few hours before the event to help with setup, assist with the execution of the event, and strike after the event. You may sometimes be asked to assist with the rehearsal coordination, the day prior to the event. You may be subject to long and late hours, but you will gain valuable hands-on experience.
The only qualifications for this position is an interest in wedding and event planning, good communication skills, and the ability to think quick on your feet! Also, you must be able to work on weekends (including Friday). We'd prefer if you are getting some kind of school credit for this internship, but it is not required.
If you are interested in interning with us, please e-mail your resume to email@example.com. No calls, please.
Thank you and good luck!

You'll have to be careful with some of the heavier dresses, but this is such a fun way to display your fashion. Besides your dress, another option, is for your bridesmaid's dresses. Can you see it? Your girl's dresses hanging next to each other on hangers with their names on it? Too cute!
How about your wedding night negligee hanging on a personalized "Mrs" hanger? In addition to being a great photo op, this is also such a cute keepsake!
