Weddings here in the bakery are very near and dear to our hearts. Being a part of such a wonderful celebration in someone’s life is a true honor. To showcase this opportunity, we are happy to introduce our newest blog feature, Wedding Wednesdays! Each Wednesday we will showcase some of the many wonderful couples we have been lucky enough to meet. To kickoff this new feature, we are proud to introduce you to Craig and Katie Williamson!
Craig and Katie met in 2003 during their freshman year of college at The University of North Carolina Greensboro. They both participated in Greek life and were introduced through mutual friends. After college, four and a half years of friendship, and four years of dating, Craig proposed during a Saturday night out in downtown Greensboro just outside of Grey’s Tavern. The couple then celebrated with an engagement party inside Grey’s surrounded by friends and family who witnessed the proposal from the tavern’s front windows!
Craig and Katie were married on October 6th, 2012 at The Angel’s Cottage On The Lake in Thomasville, NC. When we asked Katie why she and Craig chose Maxie B’s for their wedding cake, she spoke of her time working in our bakery during college, and the many occasions she and Craig spent in and out of the shop over the years. They also spoke of our dedication to using the freshest ingredients, baking everything from scratch with love, and the wonderful generosity and fun spirit of our shop Owner, Robin, and Event Coordinator, Shannon. Of course, their love for Pumpkin Chocolate Chip, German Chocolate, and 18 Carrot Cake also helped!
Our team of decorators created a wonderful cake for the couple designed around their rustic, vintage, and storybook inspired wedding. The couple chose our popular crowd pleasers Orange Dreamsicle and Five Flavor Pound (classic pound cake flavored with lemon, almond, rum, brandy and vanilla) for their special day. We are so grateful to have been involved in such a big day for Katie and Craig!
