Everyone Loves Wedding Cake

Everyone knows we love going to wedding shows. And one of our annual favorites is about to happen this weekend: The Bridal Showcase at Historic Oakland in Columbia, MD.

Beautiful August bride Carrie is walked to her ceremony on side-garden at Historic Oakland by her dad.

If you've never been to Oakland, it's absolutely worth a visit as one of the most important preserved historic sites in Howard County. The house itself is so gorgeous. It was originally built in 1811. Inside there are majestic fireplaces, a ballroom and two dramatic staircases. An incredible backdrop for a wedding, rehearsal dinner or bridal tea! Oakland is also home to the Maryland Museum of African Art, which is definitely deserving of a visit.

The Bridal Showcase this weekend is on Sunday April 11 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Vendors from the Baltimore/Washington area will be on hand to display their specialties. We have been part of the event every year for five years in a row - and we're always in the tent on the patio. So please stop in and say hello! And hey - don't forget the best part of wedding shows - wedding cake samples! Even the most manly groom will be agreeable to that!

The cost is $10.00 for advance ticket purchase and $15.00 for tickets purchased at the door. For further information or to purchase tickets, please call 410-730-4801 or 800-730-4802. Historic Oakland is located at 5430 Vantage Point Road, Columbia, Maryland, 21044.
