Nashville wedding planning:: StudioWed’s newest vendor, The Cupcake Collection!

We are proud to introduce The Cupcake Collection into the StudioWed family as our newest wedding vendor! Started by the Francois family as a “business offering comfort that people could attain,” The Cupcake Collection has blossomed into a booming cupcake bakery in the Germantown area of Nashville, housed in a homey purple cottage. It’s no secret to Nashville that The Cupcake Collection can bake a good cupcake – since the business opened in 2008, it has racked up quite a few honors, including the Toast of Music City Best Bakery (2009, 2010, 2011), Best of Nashville Writer’s Choice (2009), and the JUMP Best Specialty Shop (2009, 2010) – but according to Mignon Francois, it’s not just about the business, “We’re always looking for opportunities to affect others with our cupcakes.”

The Cupcake Collection pretty much does it all, from creating their signature cupcakes in their Germantown home base, to spreading the joy all over town in the beloved “Cupcake Bus.” Do you want your cupcakes ready for carry out, or even shipped out of town? They’ve got you covered. Mini, jumbo? Check. Most importantly for us, The Cupcake Collection also does weddings, and they are willing to take their award-winning cake flavors to make a cake or cupcakes tailored and customized to fit your wedding perfectly. “Our cupcakes are made with love…Our wedding cakes are made because of it.”

EOH focuses on the intimacy of the handwritten message, with their intricate and delicate designs.  “At a time when digital communication is so common, the rarity of the handwritten word has more impact and meaning than ever.  You may receive countless text messages, emails, and other forms of digital communication in a single day, but you also know how special you feel when someone takes the time to write you a handwritten note.”

_MG_3478 _MG_3502

“There is something that a handwritten note on a nice piece of stationery conveys that makes digital communication seem cold and distant by comparison.  When you get an elegant wedding invitation printed on quality paper you immediately know that you’ve just been invited to an extra special wedding!  We love helping people achieve these same types of aesthetics, which elicit similar emotional responses in others.”

_MG_3514 _MG_3590

EOH focuses on the unique qualities in each client, to ensure their invitation or stationery is a truly one-of-a-kind, piece of art.  “It is a gift to be able to work with individuals and their unique stories every day.  We love getting to know our clients so that we can incorporate their families, their passions, and their personalities into each piece of stationery or invitation that goes out.  We have great relationships with local printing and letterpress companies and we personally approve every single layout to ensure that each job receives the best treatment.”
