My dear, sweet and insanely talented friend, Candace Grahl is going on an adventure. She is jumping head first into the event design business. With an affinity for color, paper, fabric and baking….she is taking those passions and channeling them into Candace Marie Design. We, her friends, have been benefiting from her delicious baked goods, creative crafting, and decorating tips for years. With a gentle nudge from her husband and her friends holding up pom poms and banners…she is going for it! Her main focus will be on the dessert tables/small-time catering & the designing details like tags, ribbons, and things of that fashion. The finishing touches are happening with her website so stay tuned for her official launch in late spring.
She approached Ryan and me in the fall to grab some headshots for the site. FIsh in a barrel! Not only is she a looker, she has an insane range of facial expressions. Candace is one of my most animated friends which makes for some great photos. She also happens to think Ryan and I are pretty darn funny so getting her laughing is a cinch! Enjoy some of my favorites of her as well as a sneak peek at some of her work from our little friend, Ella’s, first birthday party.

Now on to a Candace Marie event. This was a 1st birthday party for our dear friends Sarah and Nathans daughter, Ella Jade!
Check out the beautiful table…..
and the adorable birthday girl!
Ella actually had a violent reaction to the taste of frosting. She yelled and shook…then she realized she was CRAZY and enjoyed it.
So keep your bookmarks set for Candace Marie Design to see more of what Candace has cooking in the kitchen…literally!
