This has been an exciting year full of ups and downs. I have learned so much and 2009 is only going to get better. This year, I have met a number of exceptional individuals in the wedding industry like Michelle Gainey of StudioWed, Lauren Brewton of Events with Grace, Ashley Baber of Ashley Baber Weddings, Ross Oscar Knight of Ross Oscar Knight Photography, Shannon Belletti of Belletti Photography, Gail Johnson of Wedding Soireee, and so many more.
I started this year with a determination to start my own business; however, I had no clients, but I am starting 2009 with a wedding a day after New Years and a feature article in The Atlantan Bride.
The past couple of weeks and the next couple of weeks, we will be dedicated almost 100% to making chocolate for the holidays. I feel like I am neglecting my artisan gelato that was a huge success during the summer. Those hot summer days were so busy I was getting little sleep.
I wanted to share some pictures of our gelato from this summer. I will be posting more chocolate pictures soon. I have to make custom chocolates for a wedding coming up at The Georgian Terrace Hotel. In addition, I have holiday and corporate chocolates to create. I will be sure to take pictures and share as much as I can.
As Christmas approaches, I have started to receive corporate chocolate orders. I receive orders from large companies and small entrepreneurs like Kathy Grates of Divine Occasions. Kathy is an event planner that I have been working with over the past couple of months. To create her ideal box of truffles, Kathy selected a number of truffles from our standard collection and we collaborated to develop her own custom chocolates. These custom truffle boxes will be gifts to her clients and vendors. Below are pictures of Divine Occasions' custom chocolates.
Dreamy Gelato and Chocolates’ desserts are handmade onsite. Each chocolate is made with the finest ingredients no preservatives or artificial ingredients added. Chocolates can be customized for corporate events, gifts and weddings. Artisan gelato is made from scratch, the true Italian method. Gelato can be served at any event or customized cakes can be ordered.
