Prophetic Weddings

We all want to think that our chosen mate was "meant to be."   That you were bound to be together and your wedding was destined.  It's like you could read it in the stats. 

Well, I don't know about all that but I do know that in 2011 I had the priveledge of providing wedding cakes for two couples who just happened to have chosen dates that were said to be "the end of the world."  Obviously this did not happen according to schedule because I sit here typing this blog.  What I do know is that these weddings went flawlessly and that in anticipation of the end of the world, delivery traffic was very light on both days.

 I delivered a wonderful wedding cake to Shelby and John at The Cotton Room in downtown Durham.  Delicious layers of angel food cake with fresh strawberry mousse in between.  The day was beautiful, sunny, and John and Shelby were beautiful together.

October 21, 2011

After a rough hurricane season on our coast, Jessica and Anthony found that they had to move their beach wedding inland, like all the way to Durham.  Having survived May 21st with no ill results we now moved onto October 21st, the newly ordained "end of the world" date.  Jessica's father, Jim Shaw (www.JimShawPhoto.com) jokingly asked if he could get his deposit back if the world ended...um, no.

Again, a beutiful, warm and sunny day in Durham and the reception site was relocated to Croasdaile Country Club (www.croasdailecountryclub.com).  Jessica and Anthony were able to have their beach reception with a cake covered in chocolate seashells and flip flop topper.

May 21, 2011 - not the end of the world.   October 21, 2011 - nope, still not end of the world.  They were definitely special days that, for a few families, will always be remembered as destined.
