Featured Wedding | Samantha + Adam

We love it when one of our very own has a child tie the knot! Laura Talbot with Ms. Laura's Cakes daughter did just this last month (March 11) at Okmulgee First Baptist Church. She was married by Pastor Tim Walker (pastor at Stillwater First Baptist Church), Samantha's uncle and the pastor who also married Laura and her husband, Jimmy.

The couple had dream team of TWS professionals to bring the day to life! The church gym transformed into a beautiful reception with the draping skills of Greg Sturg (Soft Touch draping) with roughly 263 feet of sheer linen as well as adding lighting from Integrity Lighting.

Talbot remarked on some of the vendors she and her daughter chose for the wedding, "Rene Punch with Mom and Me Events provided day-of services for the wedding, which was one of my best decisions. While I know everything about cake and catering, I don't know everything about conducting a wedding and getting everything pulled off. Rene was a Godsend in that area. I am in love with Mandy Miller's (Divine Designs by Mandy) bouquets so I didn't even have to think about who the florist would be. The lilac and white bouquets were gorgeous. I sent my daughter off the morning of the wedding to go get her hair and makeup done by Tulsa Bridal Beauty's owner Krista Perry. (I wasn't able to go with her because I was still prepping food for the reception). Her maids-of-honor went with her as well. When she got home she was beaming. I asked her if she was pleased with her hair and makeup and she said, 'I feel like a princess'. Thats all I needed to hear."

Sometimes it can be difficult to walk the line between working an event and being a part of it. Talbot stated, "I set up her cake, got all the food delivered, and was done as 'Ms. Laura's Cakes' by 2:00 pm; then I became mother-of-the-bride." Job well done, Laura!

Brittney Ashton with Brittney Ashton Photography documented the event. "Capturing Samantha and Adam's wedding day was an honor. I have been friends with her mom almost as long as I have been shooting weddings. When Samantha was a senior in high school I shot her senior pictures. Now, 4 years later, I'm shooting her wedding. It was such a beautiful day and love was in the air. Of course the cake by Ms. Laura herself was phenomenal, she went above and beyond as always."

Congrats to Samantha and Adam from everyone here at TWS!

The cake included red velvet with cream cheese, gluten-free carrot with cinnamon cream, butterscotch with Irish cream, chocolate with twinkie, and vanilla with strawberry. It was iced in buttercream with many lilac sugar flowers and edible pearls. Talbot hand-painted the wreath and monogram as they were incorporated from the design on the invitation (which was also created by Talbot). The topper was a white porcelain bride and groom from Talbot's wedding cake. At the base of the wedding cake there was a framed photo of both Adam's and Samantha's parents on their wedding days. The groom wanted the chocolate fountain instead of a grooms cake so, of course, Ms. Laura obliged.
