A Yellow Wedding Cake

This was the wedding of a young couple from Chicago. Elleanore is from here. She grew up in Vallier and went to school in Bozeman. She is the marketing director for Phillidelphia Cream Cheese. Leif, the groom is from Sweden and works in Chicago also. They meet on a blind date that her friend's had arranged. She laughts now because she said when she heard his name she wasn't sure about meeting him. She said it was love at first meeting.
Elleanore booked this wedding back in December. She was the most organized bride I have meet to date. Every detail was planned out. She made one trip home in April to meet with everyong to finallize all the details. She then came home the week of the wedding to get all the last minute details completed. While she and her sisters got everything done. Leif and the groom's men went camping in Glacier.
The cake top was designed just for the couple by an artist in Chicago.
The wedding cake was lemon with huckleberry filling.

The groom is an avid reader. Thus, Elleanore choose books for the groom's cake. The titles are his three favorite books. The groom's cake was also a lemon cake. I'm not sure if she choose lemon because it was the groom's favorite flavor or if it was because the cake was yellow.

The reception was at the Charlie Russell Museum. It was suppose to be an outside affair under tents. This didn't happen because we had had rain on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. The ground was too wet to put the tents up. So the reception was moved indoors. The is a picture of the cake table. The five plates on the side are Cream Cheese Mints made from, you guess it, Phillidelpia Cream Cheese. Taylor an I made 900 of these mints.

A little side note. We drove by the church on the way home from setting up the cake and got to see the bride and groom. They were riding to the reception in a yellow convertable. Have you guessed it yet. Her main color was yellow. The groom's tie was yellow, along with the vests that the groom and groom's men wore. Her brides maids wore navy blue. Elleanore made the blue and yellow table runners and napkins as favors for her guests. This was such an organized bride that she even had a seating chart. So the guests could find their table each guest was given a letter of the alphabet and all the tables were in alphabetic order. The museum was beautiful and I'm sure it was the wedding of her dreams.
