A Shimmery Nighttime Photo Shoot w/ the City Skyline & an Ombre Cake

Happy Thursday. Today is the 2nd day of Wedding Vendor Challenges for January. Like yesterday, the colors for this month are a wintry ice blue with silver for that touch of sparkle. Today's challenge is from Colleen of Bellissimo Weddings & Events {who you may remember from helping with my daughter's Strawberry Shortcake Birthday Party}. Colleen chose Taste in Albany, NY as the venue for this shoot because of their beautiful penthouse suite that overlooks downtown Albany. Taste is an amazing location for a wedding and reception. Andrea of Photos by AMU did an amazing job of capturing the city view along with the table and desserts.

The linens used were a light blue crinkle taffeta overlay with Taste's white underlay and a light blue chair tie with a glittery blue swirl design.

Duo Design Studio created all of the paper products that were used for the menu, favors and cupcake table. The shimmery paper is the perfect finishing touch.

Coccadotts made the gorgeous cake and cupcakes and really tied all of the colors and shimmer together with the ombre look. I'm loving the cake, how about you?
