We are so excited about our upcoming wedding in 2018. I originally came in to get more information about their cakes not realizing they were a private venue as well! After coming in & meeting Tasia I was hooked! Not only did I get the information on the cakes like I originally wanted, she also offer a tour & was respectful of my time. I then went home & was so excited to come back & share the information with my future husband. We did the cake tasting in our home with our 7 year old who loved helping. We decided to come back & do another tour & ask more questions. It was very easy to schedule, we were able to get in that weekend easily enough! Tasia was AMAZING! She was so knowledgeable & easy to talk with. I had TONS of questions & she patient & able to answer them all. THANK YOU we can't wait to celebrate our big day!

My wedding was 11/4/17 and I️ wouldn’t change anything about it for the world! Tasia was amazing as our event planner through the entire affair, JJ did an amazing job with our flowers and Anita was fantastic as our day of coordinator. The food was great and our Pear almond cake was delicious! This venue is all inclusive, so you don’t have to stress about finding vendors to communicate continuously with. As long as you are responsive and open with the event coordinator, everything will be exactly as you want it! I️ would pick this place over and over again!

I love this venue! Victoria and Jimmie are fabulous and every event I film there is flawless! I would highly recommend all soon-to-be-wed couples check out this venue! Also- if you're looking for an amazing cake that will WOW your guests without the high price tag these guys are it! I can't believe how great their prices are for the quality and detail in each of their cakes. My mouth is watering just thinking about them! Yum!

Lake Union Cafe & Custom Bakery Rocks! The Bakery does a majority of our brides wedding cakes and desserts! She does awesome individual cheese cakes, which you can make into a cheesecake bar with 3 different toppings! SOOOOO GOOD!
