Let Them Eat Cupcakes… Posted March 23, 2012


Every wedding is special to us, but Lisa and Jeff’s was very close to our heart. Jeff, son of the Bee’s previous Innkeepers, Bob and Penny Nelson, had grown up on the Bee and Thistle’s grounds. After he met his beautiful bride Lisa, they knew that they had to celebrate  where so many other memories had been made. It was such an honor to have their special day here.

After a traditional ceremony at St.Anne’s Church, the celebration began. At first, Penny found it difficult to let go as being ‘InnKeeper’ , but finally was able to give in and enjoy being a guest of honor. The Bee’s grounds were in all its’ glory, with roses blooming in our English Sunken Garden and our five acres  lush and green. Lisa’s flowers were a pop of yellow, and Linnea studded small pearls through out her bouquet. The couple opted for a cupcake Viennese Table instead of a traditional cake- and my, oh my, were these cupcakes beautiful. Fresh out of the oven and hand frosted, each cupcake was topped with a fresh flower. Continuing the couple’s love for all things sweet, each guest departed with hand decorated cookies.

Congratulations to Jeff and Lisa, and may you continue to enjoy many cupcakes together!
