Congratulations to our good friend and fellow CT Wedding Pro Lovely Cakes on an epic win on Food Network's Cake Wars!! We are so excited and proud of this tremendous success for Renata. SO ... what better way to show our support than to dedicate this week's blog post to Renata's lovely cakes (see what I did there), sweet treats, and her fabulous grand opening party for her new commercial kitchen in Stratford that we helped plan this past November.
I first met Renata 3 years ago at a pretty fantastic networking event for CT Wedding Pros in New Haven. Since then, I have had the absolute pleasure of working with Renata on several photo shoots, weddings, and special events. Not only is she extremely talented in the kitchen, she is also one of the hardest working and genuine people I've encountered in the industry. I was honored when she asked if I could help plan her grand opening party, and thrilled to be part of such a special moment.
A HUGE thank you to our fabulous group of sponsors that helped make this party such a success!
