Brittany Musk and Matthew Ekstrum - Kansas meets Louisiana in a Fairytale Wedding at Loyd Hall - May 5, 2012

What a glorious day for a fairytale wedding!  The Prince, Matthew Ekstrum was from Kansas and he and Princess Brittany Musk from Louisiana had met and fell in love.   In an intimate ceremony surrounded by family and friends, the couple exchanged vows on the front lawn of  Loyd Hall Plantation with the birds chirping softly and love in the air on Saturday, May 5, 2012.
With all of the new family members in town for the wedding celebration, the newlyweds wanted to give them a glimpse and a taste of some South Louisiana food and they did just that.

Best Catered Events offered up Louisiana Crawfish Etouffee with rice, Smoked Salmon Display, Spicy Gulf Shrimp Dip in Phyllo Cups, Sweet and Sour Meatballs, Cheesey Jalapeno Bites, Stuffed New Potatoes, Italian Bruschetta, Sonoma Chicken Salad with crackers,asparagus cheese bites,  fresh fruit and cheese and Pecan Smoked Beef Brisket with Freshly Baked Rolls.  Almond Iced Tea and Raspberry Lemonade completed the menu. 

The guest tables were decorated with white floor length linen tablecloths, white chaircovers and claret red bows and centerpieces accented throughout the outside reception area.  There were Southern magnolias and red roses everywhere. 

Brittany's older sister, Ashley Hancock, was the cake maker for this most special day.  Although she  resides in Crestview, Florida, and is busy with two toddlers most of her day, she created a  wedding cake that was intricately detailed in red scrollwork. The magnolias and rose flowers on the cake were made with sugar gumpaste and she handmade those as well.  There was strawberry cake underneath the fondant and buttercream.   A beautiful work of art and we were told, very delicious!

As the evening comes to an end, we realize that Brittany, our newest bride will now be residing in Kansas with her Prince your heels together three times are now at home with your husband!  You made such a beautiful bride.

Congratulations and Best Wishes from your Best Catered Events Team
