Wedding Cake

Tuesday, November 6th, 2007

I thought this would be fun to share. We will be getting our wedding cake from Dorothy Ann Bakery ( for our reception. We know the owners, we know the employees, we know the food, and quite simply, we love it.

That said, there are surprising number of things to decide when it comes to building the cake of your dreams. Things like, what kind of wedding topper do you want? What kind of cake do you want (I might talk Amber into Marble ;-))? Do you want a grooms cake?  How much cake is everyone going to want to eat? How many people are there going to be? Do you want to save the top of the cake in the freezer for your first anniversary?

All these things need to be answered. Thankfully, Joan and Steve (the owners) know that there are a lot of questions to be answered, and they want to do everything they can to help. They even have these wedding cake shows where you can go, see a bunch of the latest cake designs, and just talk with them about what it is your heart desires in a cake. I’m going to post the times for their wedding cake show, just so you have them (and so I don’t lose them):

  • Thursday, Jan. 10th, 2008 5:00pm to 8:00pm
  • Friday, Jan. 11th, 2008 1pm to 5:00pm
  • Saturday, Jan. 12th, 2008 10:00am to 2:00pm
  • Saturday, Jan. 26th, 2008 10:00am to 2:00pm
  • Sunday, Jan. 27th, 2008 10:00am to 2:00pm
  • Monday, Jan. 28th, 2008 5:00pm to 8:00pm

It even says they’ll have samples! Yay for samples!

In other news, if you think we should style our cake a certain way (for example, Super Mario Brothers, Metroid, Zelda, Super Smash Brothers, Wii, Computerish, Legoish, or any other fun way) let us know in the comments.

The Wedding Participants

Monday, October 1st, 2007

Well of course the main participants in our wedding are Justin and me. We have also asked a few people to join us in celebrating in a closer way.

We have asked Derek Broten to perform our sermon. Pastor Dean Nadasdy will be overseeing and officiating the wedding, but Derek will be doing our message.

Joel Symmank will be performing the music at the ceremony. I really have no idea what songs I (we) want him to play, so any suggestions would be much appreciated!

For the wedding party itself, not everyone has been officially asked yet.

Ashley (my sister) is my maid of honor, and Amy (Justin’s sister) and Nikki (my best friend) are bridesmaids. I will have one more bridesmaid (hopefully!) but she is going to receive my request in a couple of weeks when she arrives in India and gets my letter to her.

Richard (Justin’s best friend) is his best man, and John (our friend) and Darin (Justin’s cousin) are his groomsmen. His fourth groomsmen will be his cousin John, whom he still needs to ask.

My cousin Sierra is our flower girl and Justin’s cousin Trevor is the ring bearer.

We will have 2-3 ushers who have yet to be declared, as well as two readers we have to decide on.

The lucky thing is that we have a lot of time to decide!
