A Chocolate COVERed Party

After finding out that Jessica and Steve landed on the cover of Carolina Bride, it was decided to have a get together to celebrate. Never did I think it would turn out to be such a beautiful (and tasty) event! All of the credit goes to wedding planner Alyse Woodward and Josh Dernosek of Best Impressions Catering.

Many thanks to the following vendors for sponsoring:

Event Coordination: Alyse Woodward Events
Venue: Byron's South End
Cake: Cake Lady Jill
Flowers: Flowers in the Cellar
Catering: Best Impressions Caterers
Linens: Connie Duglin

Pam's work from Flowers in the Cellar was FAB. She even dipped the flowers in real chocolate and used chocolate chips in the flower beds to fit the party theme.

Yes, I admit I went a little overboard on the detail shots....but how could I not?!

My jaw straight DROPPED as I watched the staff of Best Impressions lay out all of the fabulous desserts. Seriously, if you are in need of an amazing caterer for your wedding or event, Best Impressions is where it's at.

These were my favorites.

How pretty are the truffles?!

Props to Alyse for providing one of my favorite things - the candy bar.

Thank you Cake Lady Jill for the delish cake!

LOVE all the detail shots! And the chocolate looks so yummy and I don't even like chocolate! You guys definitely deserved the cover and I have a feeling that is just the beginning. God bless you guys in every aspect of your lives. You have worked very hard to get to where you are now!
