Cake Spotlight: Carly at Lipgloss and Crayons

Proposal Story:
My husband and I met at church, on Valentine's Day (I know, cheesy).  He plays in the worship band, and INSISTED that he would never propose in front of people.  He said that since he performs for a living, he would want a proposal to be private.  Every year, my church has a large Women's Christmas Tea (upwards of 1,000 people).  Women host tables of ten guests, and have a husband, boyfriend or friend serve as their butler.  I hosted a table, and my (then) boyfriend served as butler.  I should have noticed that he was acting a little, on edge.  At the end of the tea, the butlers sing "Go Tell it on the Mountain" and present each woman with a rose.  My rose was last, accompanied by Robbie getting down on one knee.  When I looked up, we had an audience of 1,000 women crying and taking pictures!  It's pretty awesome, we sit in the exact place he proposed every Sunday!

What were your wedding colors?
Our wedding colors were black, grey, white and red.

What cake flavors did you choose?
We had red velvet cupcakes, chocolate cupcakes with mint frosting, and vanilla cupcakes with buttercream frosting.  Our cutting cake was red velvet, my favorite!

Did you save the top layer and freeze it for your 1st anniversary?
We saved one of each cupcake flavor, can't wait to break into the box on July 31st!

First bite of cake tradition: smeared or proper?
Proper, but I think our guests may have smeared each other!

Any funny or embarrassing stories of the wedding day?
My husband's band played our first dance song....."Without You" by Keith Urban.  Midway through the first chorus, the tempo changed.....and they did a mash up of "Without You" and "Gold Digger".  Total surpise, but it was PRICELESS!  I still crack up months later when I see our reactions on video!

{Thanks so much Carly! I wish I could have seen the video of your first dance! SO funny :) I love the dessert table and the cupcake tower! Go check out her adorable blog!!}
