July 24, 2010 was the wedding of Samantha and Michael. Their reception was at the Cathedral in New Castle, a beautiful historic site you can view at www.cathedralnewcastle.com. I loved the groom’s cake they incorporated in the Ballroom, just off of the Main Dining Room. The cookie table itself was impressive, but what made it unique is found at the center of the long, traditional cookie tables. Check out these photos of this groom’s cake, crowned with a very personal cake topper. Click on each to see details. Surrounding the cake are chocolate cookies, petits fours, and candies, and especially tasty was the blend of nuts and pretzels coated with caramel and chocolate.
Another remarkable cookie table was at the wedding of Rebecca and Scott. The Main Dining Room at the Cathedral had a long cookie table with hundreds of dozens of cookies. What made this unique was that all the cookies on the table in the main room were light-colored pastel. All of the dark cookies were on a different table in the Ballroom. This was remarkable and a beautiful tribute to both the bride and groom - the dark cookies were accompanied by the groom’s cake, the light cookies were accompanied by the white wedding cake.
