Baking Wedding Cakes is a family affair for Beverly Harrell. From the time she was a small child in Jonesville NC she remembers spending lots of time in the kitchen with her mom and grandma learning to bake. When Beverly’ s grandmother passed away, she inherited all her cake pans and recipes, these are the pans she used to bake of her daughter’ wedding cakes. Beverly takes comfort knowing how pleased her grandma would be to see the cakes she makes. When baking wedding cakes, you must have a lot of patience and plenty of time to do it. You cannot rush and you must keep your air turned low in your house or the cakes melt. Beverly learned quickly when she was asked to bake her first wedding cake for her daughter Kayla’s wedding. “Lots of prayers went up to grandma for that cake “But once I got started, it all fell into place and everyone loved the sunflowers that covered one side and it tasted delicious. A short 14 months later, Beverly’ daughter Heather was getting married, this time Beverly was more confident in her baking abilities but before she could make Heathers cake, she found herself having to overcome some health issues. Despite having breast cancer 15 years ago, she was now being diagnosed with lung Cancer. This year she went through chemo from January till March, and on April 30th, the day before Beverly’s 57th birthday, she underwent surgery to remove the cancer. She spent the next 5 days alone in the hospital due to the Corona virus, but Beverly said “ I made it. I knew I had to; I had a wedding cake to make.” Baking Wedding cakes is a hobby for Beverly that she is so thankful to still be able to do. The amount of love and time she puts into each of her cakes is apparent. When you’re baking, you need to realize that sometimes it’s not going to work out like you wanted and you will have to start over. The biggest lesson she learned that she could share with other beginners is to slow down, give yourself plenty of extra time to get it done. Beverly has already had requests from others for her to make their Wedding cakes. She hopes to continue baking them for along time.

In the future issues, we will visit places that may interest you for your wedding. In addition to VENUES in multiple states on the east coast, destination weddings are on the upward trend. It has been interesting to see how many new venues are opening for smaller wedding. As the editor of Ultimate Wedding Inspirations, I look forward to highlighting these areas in future issues.

very Wedding brings its own taste, color, and theme to its bride, groom, and of course it’s guests and / or Zoom audience! As the new year approaches and the previous unfolds, autumn hits with bold, rich new colors of fall; rich copper, burgundy, and red and yellow combinations are sure to be a hit this fall. Winter Wonderland themes with soft blues, whites, and silver can accommodate a cozy, small gathering for a an evening full of romance. Dress your hall like you would for Christmas! Exaggerate everything. Bursts of color, chandelier events, and weddings planned outside are on the rise. With the world changing and adaptations being made to accommodate mass gatherings such as social distancing, mask wearing, and smaller gatherings, we now have an opportunity to become more creative. Technology can assist in helping those who cannot attend events, like live streaming or using a Zoom call. Items such as personalized hand sanitizers, masks, and online programs add a special touch that is also thoughtful and safer. Outdoor weddings are becoming more popular. Options include using tents and being at the beach or in the mountains. It’s a great time to be creative with an outdoor venue. Creating your own fairytale with the help of wedding planners, internet searches, and especially the Wedding Inspirations site, can ease anxiety around planning a wedding. Include your family and friends in the ideas portion of planning, especially with modifying your original ideas in order to make them safer. There are new rules and regulations at venues, restaurants, bars, and catering companies, so it is important to take the time to really look into what is possible for your special day.

Veil or No Veil? While wearing a veil is not required, traditionally this accessory dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times. At that time, brides would ne wrapped from head to toe, representing the delivery of a modes maiden. The wrapping was said to hide or disguise brides so that evil spirits could not find them and steal their happiness! A more traditional-like wedding may include a veil; and a more modern-day wedding may not. Just like each woman and bride’s wedding can be expected to hold its own special thoughts, moments, themes and ideas so may each dress, Veil or no Veil / headpiece. Ultimately, it is the bride’s choice. A more traditional wedding may include a veil, and a more modern wedding may not. Just like each bride, the wedding holds its own special thoughts, moments, themes, and ideas that also manifest through the choice of dress and headpiece. It’s your wedding, your special day, do and wear what makes you happy! Lexi Goodson photographer David Eriksen

What are some SAFE ways to spend our Honeymoon? With the pandemic still lingering, alterations may have to be made to the honeymoon. One idea to help couples stay safe is to travel by car instead of by plane. A roadtrip may be a fun way to bond! Consider outdoor activities, like camping, hiking, going to the beach, watching sunsets, and other outdoor adventures.

Special thanks to the Guinness World Records

86 years, 290 days The Guinness World Record for longest living American couple belongs to North Carolinians Herbert and Zelmyra Fisher. They were married for 86 years, 290 days as of February 27, 2011 when Herbert died at the age of 105. Note what Ralph said about his wife. “The key to our longevity is our healthy living and agreeable nature.� "If we had anything, a real problem, I agreed to it. That's the best way to get out of that," Ralph says. Neither of them have ever drank alcohol or smoked, and they spent a lifetime loving the passions of the other. "Dorothy loves ballroom dancing and I loved to shoot clay targets," Ralph said. "I joined her with ballroom dancing and she joined me with trap shooting." Dorothy proved quite good at trap shooting too. She became the National Trap Shooting Champion in 1952.

My Heart Remembers Love is granted for two as time stops and lives come together. Never thinking it could last and go on, but our hands hold to what we cherish. My heart remembers each passing day as if things should stay the same, Only to realize the one I have loved for years, is no longer by my side. Thank you my love.

I strongly recommend her to any bride needing some help and guidance to take the stress off them.” -Tammy C “Allison was very knowledgeable and crea ve in the se ng up the venue for the wedding. She not only assisted in the set up of the wedding, she also assisted the vendors on loca on making sure they were set up and ready as scheduled. She assisted in cleaning up a erwards and directed the wedding for the bride.. Having her there was such a big help and made the day so much more manageable for me and the bride. She's very easy to work with , I would highly recommend Allison to anyone looking for a planner/director for their big day.” - Amy Sawyers, owner of Rachels Place
