Designer Belize Wedding in Less Than a Week

The week before American Thanksgiving I received a call from a friend on the island.  A local bar owner had asked her to help with a “simple” wedding for his friends.  She began to try to piece the wedding together and quickly realized there’s a whole lot more to this than meets the eye,  and called me.

I had a brief call with Ryan and Angela, and it was clear that they were so in love and just wanted a designer Belize Wedding and a lovely evening to celebrate with a few close friends.

Olivera Rusu Photography not only captured the gorgeous details of this custom designed wedding, she also made dancing in the rain supremely sexy.

The couple were blending two families, with loads of kids! The kids couldn't come to the wedding, so I surprised the couple with their presence this way

This space was brand new and it's first day was this wedding. In a crunch, I designed this ceiling fixture. The owner liked it so much he wanted to keep it.

Last Minute Elopement in Belize- Tres Romantique!

I received a last minute panicked email from Denise.  She and Angel, her boyfriend, were coming to Belize in a couple of days, and they wanted to elope in Belize.  They were staying at a remote resort North of San Pedro, but didn’t want to get married at that property.  With only a week to get things together, I arranged for a private cabana, private boat, private dinner, and of course,  my “go to” photog, Olivera Rusu Photography.   I picked her brain for some great locations for a simple 2 person ceremony, lined up the officiant, and we were off to the races for this lovely and simple destination wedding for 2.

All You Need Is Love

Denise was stunning in her lace 2 piece gown and Angel was dapper in his leather suspenders.  The simple ceremony was filled with love and great vibes.

What makes our cakes so beautiful…? Personalised designs, an abundance of natural elements that add to the Belizean specialness and very unique flavors like:

 “Coconut Pecan, Tropical Carrot, Roasted Banana (sweet, roasted bananas blended with walnuts) and of course the traditional Double Chocolate, (deep dark and delicious) and more… but wait, you must hear about the fresh local fillings: fruit curds (lime, orange, pineapple), custard creams (mocha, coconut, banana and vanilla), butter creams (rum, lime, almond and chocolate fudge) and more… Now don’t forget the frostings to top it off: Swiss Meringue Buttercream and Chocolate Fudge Buttercream! and more…

Oh my!

See for yourself… and do pay attention to the accessories created by our in-house Designer,  extras that make Belize style Wedding cakes, a trend to be found only in Belize.
