Thomas Bennett House Wedding: Whitney + Nick

Whitney + Nick envisioned a romantic southern garden wedding and The Thomas Bennett was the perfect venue to host their day. A beautiful Sperry tent was set for dinner with chandeliers, lush blooms, and gold accents. The bar was adorned with their custom monogram decals which was also incorporated into their beautiful invitation suite. The couple said "I Do" during an intimate ceremony as guests waved 'yay' flags and tossed petals as the couple recessed down the aisle after their first kiss. A solo pianist played as guests entered the historic home for cocktail hour while the wedding party took a spin in the vintage seafoam green bus. After a night of dancing, the bride and groom exited through a tunnel of glow wands and drove off in a horse drawn carriage!

Kick Valentine's Day off with a beginning that's just as sweet as its ending - Red Velvet Crepes with raspberry and cream cheese filling! What better way to start off your romantic day together than with a breakfast so yummy neither of you will want to spend the day apart. Not too rich in taste and perfectly filling, these crepes use one of our very favorite secret ingredients... nutella!

Red Velvet Chocolate Swirl Brownie Bars - try saying that 5 times fast. Just kidding, you don't have to! All you have to do is bake and enjoy them! This recipe is halfway between a brownie and a bar. The treat is described by its creator as "fudgier, denser and richer than your typical bar", but not chocolately enough to deserve brownie status.

For some lighter fare and perhaps a night together at home, indulge in Red Velvet Popcorn. While you can't see it yet, what's holding the red velvet cake dust onto each salty bite of popcorn is... white chocolate. If that doesn't tempt you, I don't know what would!

Now last, but certainly not least, comes the Red Velvet Fudge Pie. I don't know if we have ever salivated this much over a photo but this sweet treat looks simply divine! Between the melted chips on top and the richness of the velvet underneath, you can bet this is one treat the girls of Pure Luxe will be busy baking this Valentine's Day.
