We’re back and starting the wedding year off with a bang. This year’s wedding and bridal is with A Formal Affair put on the by the Chattanooga News Free Press. This was our first time being that the Formal Affair and I have to say it was no disappointment. We saw over 220 Brides to be and got to spend some time learning about their days!
This year’s headliner was Duff Goldman – the Ace of Cakes! In a cake contest to see who has the best wedding cakes! And who better to judge! Than the Ace of Cakes himself!
We start off our slideshow with Jennifer Sills – Owner of Cup a Dee Cakes. You can see her working on her masterpiece wedding cake along with the other cakes that were entered into the contest. Moving through the slides another impressive wedding cake is the Volkswagen. Out of all the cakes made, these 2 stood out more than any other. I was told by one of the judges that the Volkswagen cake looked more reminiscent of a groom’s cake and hands down, Cup a Dee Cakes had best of show!
Then we have our Wedding photography booth. This year we’ve changed our wedding price list to something a bit classier: Accordion style cards which were a big hit! Lots of people came to the booth didn’t want to touch them in fear of messing them up! Our booth was full of color and popping with vibrancy as we riddle the walls with pictures from our Weddings, Engagements, and Day After Sessions.
Next we have shots of various wedding vendors
Then, we are introduced to the Ace of Cakes, Duff Goldman to talk about small business and to share some of his experiences. This guy’s funny and down to earth.
Then we move on to the show where many beautiful dresses were modeled by ladies just as beautiful.
At the end of the show Duff comes back out and announces the winner of the cakes tasting contest and waves goodbye.
It was an awesome experience for me being about to shoot the show as I’ve never been able to this before. It’s been a while since we had picked up the camera due to our slow winter wedding season, only having 2 weddings in Dec and January. So I very much enjoyed trying something new with the catwalk and being able to shoot a celebrity.
