Edward and Bella's Wedding Reception

I can't believe the long awaited wedding
Isabella Swan
Edward Cullen
has finally arrived and we got an

So elegant!  I love her choice of invitation
(even if Jacob didn't agree - what does he know anyway!)

The reception  is being held at the Cullen Mansion
the invitation says that

"All vampires, Werewolves and Humans
will be welcome."  

We are so excited to be a part of this big event!

The food looks fabulous.

I heard that the vampires don't really
eat anything so this wonderful spread
must be for the werewolves and humans.

I love it when they have pictures of the
couple scattered around the wedding
reception, don't you?  

And these two are such a lovely couple.

Ooh, colossal shrimp -
  definitely human food.

The Cullens sure know how to
treat their guests right.

Bella has such great taste,
I love the white roses on the
chocolate cake.  It's so unique
for a wedding.  Do you think she
was thinking of Edward with the white
roses and
 Jacob with the chocolate cake?

(Really girl, choose one!)

I would be happy to introduce you to
some of their friends that were invited.

Definitely our best Edward Cullen
and his wife Jessie
(our photographer see her at

The four of us hosted the reception,

myself and my vampirish husband (yes we are the bad ones)
and The Cullen's owners of the mansion for
the evening.

More vampires and a human bride.

I think the vampires outnumber everyone 
tonight.  Bella's dad came with a date.

Some of the clergy dropped in with garlic and
crosses to ward off the vampires and here is
a human couple all decked out for the night 
(friends of the bride I assume.)

This member of the clergy brought his stake and a
little vampire with him.  Two of our lovely werewolves
are here.  Guess Jacob didn't want to come with them.

These must be the vampires from Seattle and
maybe I was mistaken, maybe this is Bella's father
or his brother and wife.  I can't see a sheriff's badge
on this one, so it must be his brother.

Some really ancient vampires and
 Dr. Cullen with
a vampire that he just turned - the family is growing.

Definitely Volturi on the left!
You know I didn't know that Forks had so many
churches, but everyone is welcome tonight.

Definitely scary vampires and a scary werewolf 
with a child! 
He looks like a juicy snack - healthy snack at least!

It was so fun to get together with all of these
lovely vampires.  The werewolves were pretty
stinky, but there weren't that many of them
here tonight and we don't have to breath
if we don't want to.

Oooh, Victoria and James!  Don't be fooled
by their smiling faces.  I thought they were
gone!  (You never know with fiction!)

Well, let's forget about them and get
on with cutting the cake.

Edward and Bella
(our only candidate for a bride)
won the prize 
(for being Edward and Bella) 
and got to cut the cake.

                                                                      How romantic is that?

One thing I love about a wedding is how it 
brings a diverse group together and everyone
tries to be on their best behavior.

The good, the bad and the ugly!

As we left they had little truffles. 
The sign said,
"Thank you for sharing this evening of joy with
us, please take a chocolate truffle home with you,
Edward and Bella."

I have to admit it was a little tacky that some of
the truffles had Edward's name on them
and some of them had JACOB'S!!!

Hope she doesn't tell Jacob about the honeymoon!

See it in theaters this weekend and 
check the mail to see if you got your 
invitation to the reception!

Posting this with

So many Edwards!

I have to tell you that one of the funniest things
about this party was that people thought it really
was a wedding invitation when they first received it!
(At the bottom we said, yes, this is a costume party!)


Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.


  1. I wish you lived next door to me!!!! What fun.. The cakes are BEAUTIFUL.. love the way you presented them..~Grace

  2. This is a great idea! We have to wait a few weeks til the movie comes out, but I do believe that I am stealing this idea! My oldest and her friends would love a party like this before going to see the movie! It looks like your party was a hit!

  12. What a great party Jaqueline! Thanks for sharing

  13. Are you kidding? This is so over-the-top creative that I don't know what to say! I only saw the first movie (not really a fan, sorry) so at first I was lost with this and then I couldn't believe what I was seeing. The cakes look so fabulous! How fun!

  14. Love you post on the wedding! You are so much fun!

  15. Looks like so much fun! I love it when folks play along:@)

  16. Oh, you just have too much fun! I love it!

  17. Oh you know how to have FUN! Harry Potter, Halloween & Twilight...I'm on the cusp, but I'm Team Edward :)

  20. Hi Jacqueline
    What a fun party with everyone getting into the spirit!
    Great costumes and food.

  21. No doubt about it, you are the most fun house on the block!! This party is gorgeous and oh those cakes...fantastic!

  22. Ha ha, you sure know how to have fun, that's for sure! The cakes are beautiful!

  23. What Fun! You know how to be a great host.

  24. How much fun did you have!!!! Everything is absolutely gorgeous and I loved seeing all the guests!

  25. Being a big Twilight fan, I enjoyed every word and every picture of this. What fun! Great details and the food looks yummy. Looking foward to the movie this week but I enjoyed the books so much more. By the way, I'm Team Jacob-love the abs!

  26. That is beautiful. Love the cakes. The whole theme is great along with your background. Have a good week.

  27. Bloody good party, and the food looks like something I could sink my teeth in. It's neck and neck between the cake and the shrimp. Once in a blue moon you meet someone as creative as you. Must have been some cross to bear to have all that garlic around. Your neck, ie.
    I am not a Twilight fan, but it looks like you have cornered the market on folks who are. It must have been a hoot, or better, a howl! :)

  28. I've not read the books or seen the movies (probably the ONLY person on the planet who hasn't!!) but it looks wonderful and every looks like they were into it and had a good time. With all of the vampires and werewolves, I'm surprise Beulah and Zoulah didn't show up!!!

    Great post!!

  30. OHMYGOSH! This looks like so much. I absolutely love Twilight and this is a fantastic way to celebrate the movie release. I really wish my friends liked Twilight so I could share it with them.

    Your chocolate cake looks delicious, and incredibly gorgeous by the way. I LOVE the way you decorated it.

  31. Looks like a great time! The presentation of the cakes was so effective. I completely understand about the invitation. I had some similar responses to our invite for a brunch on the day of the Royal Wedding. LOL!

  32. And the Oscar for being super creative and so much fun goes to...Jacqueline!!

  33. What a wonderful idea for a party! Who doesn't love to dress up for such a grand occasion. I admit that I've read all the books but can't decide if I want to see the move.

  34. OMG! I for sure would have loved to be there!! What an awesome party the lovely couple will never forget! Great customs on the guests and the food is TDF! I specially love the cake in three parts on different level stands, terrific and it looks delish! Thanks for sharing I had a ball with your post! Thank you for your visit and I'm going to look for your damasc things. Hugs, FABBY

  35. How fun!! I am a definite Twilight fan, so this was great. I did use the Cullen family names on my placecards last week, and I have been thinking of doing a wedding table, but Thanksgiving may overshadow. This was a great idea, and I love how everyone got so into it!! Costumes were the best. Your cakes look so amazing, so beautiful! Very fun and creative, my dear!!

  36. What a hoot! Looks like everyone had a spectacular time. My favorite - chocolate cakes with white roses. Yes, please! Enjoy your thanksgiving. ~CJ

  42. Hi Jacqueline, What a fun party and you are such a creative hostess. I saw the movie yesterday and I enjoyed it but it wasn't my favorite of the series. Thanks for linking to the Open House party.
