When we arrived, the first thing we saw upon entering the house was this cake. How cool is that cake? Jamie is in medical school and is obviously an Auburn grad. I love this cake. The Fondant icing is yucky tasting (why don't they make it taste better? Tastes sort of like a stale marshmallow smashed flat) but you sure can do lots with it. The inside of the cake tasted like a hoho (I think that is what those little cakes were called) - maybe Little Debbie made them????
The bride's cake was lovely also but just couldn't compare to the groom's cake. Recently I found out that having a groom's cake is a southern thing!! Who knew? I sure didn't.
This venue is so cool for lots of reasons. (they are not paying me to write this article - as a matter of fact, they don't even know I have a blog) The outside location is spectacular. Huge green lawns surrounded by water. The inside of the home is beautiful also. I really loved all the white lights. One of my favorite things about Oak Island is that the wedding party met there on Friday night and had the rehearsal and then they had the rehearsal dinner. I don't know all the details but I do know the wedding party had to help clean up after the rehearsal dinner?? Anyway, I'm sure that alcohol was served and the beauty of this location is that the wedding party was able to spend the night! What a great idea. It was like a great big house party for them all weekend. Glenn and Lauren took us upstairs to show us where they slept. They were on the third floor and there were several bedrooms and bathrooms and a small kitchen and a huge playroom area with a tv and games, etc.
We were so excited to see so many of Glenn and Lauren's Auburn friends at the wedding. We have missed all of them. Levi was there. We are so proud of Levi - he is going to seminary!! He will shake up some church in the future!!
Tim and Jon and Marietta created this light monogram. It was so unique. I had never seen anything like it before. I loved it and I'm sure that Jamie and Jennifer loved it, too!! Tim and Marietta and Jon are all three so talented.
