Wedding Wednesday

When Jessica and Dave were introduced in February 2010 through mutual friends, the couple shared an immediate connection. Jessica recalls telling her close friends and family that she knew Dave was “the one” as soon as they met.

Well, Jessica was right. The couple began dating shortly after they were introduced in February 2010, and announced their engagement in November 2011.

Jessica adores her job as an educator and has a very special connection with her students and classroom.  Knowing this, Dave decided it would be the perfect place to catch her off guard and propose.  Everything was set up perfectly. Principle notified, kids prepared to join in, fellow colleagues ready to participate. He even had someone ready to catch the moment on film!

To top off the afternoon, Dave had arranged for Jessica to have the rest of the day off so they could enjoy lunch at their favorite restaurant in Charlotte, NC, 300 East. The evening wrapped up with a surprise dinner party at Dandelion Market surrounded by their closest friends. Essentially, it was the proposal of a lifetime. 

Jessica and Dave were married on April 27th, 2013 at Grandover Resort in Greensboro, NC.  When we asked Jessica why her and Dave chose Maxie B’s for their wedding cake, she brought up memories of the wedding cake we made for her sister in 2006. She said she has always been impressed with our bakery and that her love for our Fresh Strawberry Buttercream made it an easy choice!  The couple cited their tasting appointment with our Event Coordinator, Shannon, as one of their favorite memories in the bakery. They loved the experience of being together as a family to share in the decisions about the cake and being able to taste so many wonderful flavors. 

For their special day, the couple chose Fresh Strawberry Buttercream, Raspberry Lady, Hummingbird (sweet banana bread), and Oreo for their beautiful four-tiered wedding cake. Shannon helped the couple bring to life their perfect wedding cake designed around their modern theme with a classically southern twist.  White, silver, gray, and blush pink accents were perfectly worked into the entire day.  The cascading peonies on the cake were absolutely breathtaking! To make the day even more special for their guests, the couple named each table after a special event in their lives.

Jessica and Dave Williams had an amazing day surrounded by friends and family that they will cherish for the rest of their lives. We’re so happy we were able to be a part of it, too!
