A Wonderland Couture Event

Krystel Tien of Couture Events knew that Alice In Wonderland has been overdone a bit, but she could not get the theme out of her mind so she took a shot at it. She wanted it to be a REAL Wonderland… something every bride would want to step into and that they can create for their own wedding, bridal shower, or engagement photo session. Krystel wanted pastels, spectacular florals, to bring the inside outside, and most of all fun, whimsical, and delicious details.

Obviously she did a fantastic job with a little help from her friends, Joielala Photography captured the moment and Delphine created the amazing paper products.

From Krystel Tien of Couture Events on creating the desert table.

Dessertopia: Creating this table full of sugar was truly a dream come true! I have a sweet tooth. OK, sometimes I eat candy for breakfast! We brought the dessert bar to fruition with a mossy bed of cupcakes, beautiful blooming lollipops, and rock candy among the flowers. Cupcake Love made the deliciously decorated cupcakes and The The French Gourmet provided us with the whimsical cake. It was the little special touches that made this dessert table so scrumptious
