Celebrating 10 Years of A Savvy Event

Exactly ten years ago to this day, Kelly McLeskey-Dolata bought a blackberry and website domain, and the wine country wedding world has never been the same since. It was coincidental that Kelly started her wedding business on her parents' wedding anniversary, but if you know Kelly, you know there are few things that happen by mere coincidence for her. Kelly was determined to bring her dream to fruition, and worked tirelessly for hours in her garage (move over Steve Jobs), building her team and brand one day at a time. Now, A Savvy Event is known as one of the premiere wedding and event planning companies in Sonoma and Napa Valley, and Kelly has cemented herself as one of the most creatively talented members of the wedding community. 

As an homage to Kelly and the wonderful ten years that Savvy has been in business, we thought it would be fun to take a walk down memory lane... wedding memory lane that is. Take a peek at how the design aesthetic of A Savvy Event, and of weddings has evolved over the last ten years. What trends have stayed and what trends have gone by the wayside? We'll let you be the judge!

Wedding Wednesday: Moustache Baked Goods

We love all sweets, but think it is definitely fair to say that not all desserts were created equal. Moustache Baked Goods out of Healdsburg, CA is one of the good ones- from french macarons, to pies, to cookies, to wedding cakes, they can truly do it all. Owned by two local twenty-somethings, Moustache Baked Goods is focused around the idea of supporting the community that supports them. They source the majority of their ingredients and partnerships locally within a 30 mile radius of their hometown. 

Everything is baked from scratch and made by hand, something they take great pride in. Their small batch desserts are focused on freshness, flavor, and design making them a perfect match for your unique event or wedding requests. Some client favorites are their seasonal dessert bars and stacked wedding cakes. There is lots to look forward to from their team this year, as they are officially launching fondant cakes! 

In addition to expanding their wedding and events services, Moustache Baked Goods is launching in store retail cakes, and expanding their baking production facility in their Pastry Annex so that they can offer more to their clients!

Moustache Baked Goods' wedding and events team is like their own little family. They have been working together over the past 6 years to improve, streamline, and constantly innovate the wedding service process within the business. What started as a team of two in the kitchen has expanded as the business has grown, and Moustache Baked Goods prides themselves on baking only the highest quality, most uniquely designed treats.
