One Baby, Two Baby.....Yay!

 
 

Yep, you heard that right!  I was the lucky one chosen to make Karen and Chiaka's wedding cupcakes last October and now I was there for their second chapter.....not just twins, but a baby girl and a baby boy!!!  Two baby Obi's will be here in November!

Congrats you two and thanks again for letting me be part of another exciting celebration! 

Lynette and Ryan Get Hitched!

 
 
I never got a chance to meet these newlyweds, but I am so happy Love Bites was there to celebrate with them.  Oh, the cupcake stands were made out of vinyl records and I wish I took a picture of them so please just use your imagination.  They were awesome!

Congrats again and thanks for your order.  I hope to meet you at your next event!  :)

Erika and Will's Wedding

I met Erika and Will earlier this year and was so excited to be part of their wedding.  It was on a beauriful summer day and their amazing photographer, Kelly Chau (www.kellychau.com) captured every moment of it. 

Erika and Will, thank you so much for your order and letting Love Bites share this memory with you.

Congratulations on your marriage!

Rosalind and Allan's Big Day

                                                  Love this picture!

I met Rosalind and Allan earlier this year and seriously felt like I've known them for a while. They are such an adorable couple and Love Bites only wishes them the best life together.

Hey lovebirds, thanks for letting LB share your wedding day with you. Look forward to seeing you again very soon!

Baby Lucy's Shower at The Paragon

Megan flew in from NY and hosted a baby shower for her sister at The Paragon in Berkeley.  The shower was filled with fresh cut flowers, wheat grass, and adorable owls.   I swear it was the most beautiful shower I have ever seen! 

Megan, it was so nice meeting you and thanks again for your order!

Yolanda and Gary Tie the Knot!

Love Bites didn't get a chance to meet Yolanda and Gary at their wedding, but seeing their amazing pictures by the super talented Vero Suh made me feel like I was at there and knew them personally.  They exchanged vows at the gorgeous Solage Resort in Calistoga and the weather that day could not have been better!   

Congratulations to you both and look forward eventually meeting you the next time in the Bay Area.

Vero,  your work is awesome and hope to be able to work with you again!
