Carly’s Wedding In New Jersey Bride

Happy Wedding Wednesday everyone! We thought today would be the perfect day to share an ASE wedding that was featured in the Fall/Winter 2012 New Jersey Bride magazine. Carly and Brendan met on their first day at St. Lawrence University and were inseperable ever since. Seven years later, Brendan proposed to Carly on the beach and the rest was history! This wedding was extra special to ASE because Carly just so happens to be Allison’s daughter, and an event planner with ASE, of course! Carly and Allison worked together to dream up the perfect wedding day and it couldn’t have turned out better.

Carly’s wedding was quite the event… with a color pallet of pink and green, the possibilities were endless. Our favorite part of this wedding was the custom lighting in the tent designed by Allison herself. The surprise fireworks display was a close second for us though! There were so many little details that went into making this wedding great from the monogrammed pillows on the couches to the intracate detailing on the cake that matched Carly’s beautiful gown. Take a look at the article and make sure to pick up your own copy of New Jersey Bride, they have so many fantastic resources for brides to be!

Wedding Cake Alternatives

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend! Lately, a lot of brides have been going a different route and avoiding the traditional wedding cake. Although the cake cutting portion of a wedding is adorable, we also love the idea of a easier to eat and less formal option. If you’re having a more casual wedding, this will give your guests the freedom to dance and mingle without interruption for the remaider of the night. These cute litte desserts are perfect for snacking on while dancing the night away! We are cake pop and cupcake crazed over here at ASE!

Edible Flowers

At ASE, we think that your wedding cake should be a part of your decor. It should absolutely be in keeping with the theme of your wedding and put on display as a centerpiece. One way we love to incorporate your cake into the reception is to add flowers, whether they are fresh or edible. So many bakers can make amazing sugar flowers that you may not be able to tell the difference!
