Brayden: Southeast High School
We decided that we would love to feature some local wedding and other all around great vendors that are local to the Lincoln area. Supporting those that are local is something that is huge to us! As we get to know these amazing people that work tirelessly in our community, I hope that you find someone helpful or something that you just can’t live without!
I first met Maria at my brother’s wedding 2 years ago. She brought them a fantastic cake, that had multiple flavors and a beautiful design. I knew talking with her and her staff would be a joy because she is seriously all smiles! You can really tell she and her staff have a passion for decorating and for the cupcake/cake world. They were quite busy the day I visited, and even let me watch them make several wedding cakes, cakepops, and cupcakes for the local farmers market. Le Cupcake has been featured on Cupcake Wars, has won several awards including Best in Lincoln, is part of the Better Business Bureau, and the Knot.
Le Cupcake is located at 5563 South 48th Street, in the same parking lot as the Garage. They are open Monday thru Friday 8 to 6 and on Saturday from 8 to 5.

Make it more about getting married than about the day. And if anything goes wrong don’t let it ruin your special day. Just remember the important things and let the little stuff go.

Love the gold and blush theme going on.

She updates her daily cupcakes each month. These are some seriously yummy cupcakes! You can call ahead and order, or she has some in the shop ready to be picked up daily.
I love all the little touches around the shop. Such a warm and inviting place!
Watch below for a glimpse of some of the yummy cupcakes and behind the scenes decorating! Thanks for hanging out with me Le Cupcake!
Happy Anniversary to this incredible Omaha couple! It’s been just one year ago that you two tied the knot!
Tomorrow is Amber & Curtis’ wedding day! After over a year of planning their big day has finally come and I couldn’t be happier for the two of them. These two are some of the sweetest people I’ve ever met. Down to earth, love their families and friends, hard working and totally in love, are all things that come to mind when I think of these two.
Last year we were able to get some pictures of just the two of them, even though we had to break it up over a couple of days thanks to rain. It gave me a chance to get to know them even more!
I know their wedding day is going to be a beautiful one!
Curtis proposed at a Garth Brooks concert! Love me some Garth!!!
Soccer mom….I’ve been called that alot. This year more so. Between Ashley and myself (Alexis) our kids play a bunch of different sports and we almost always have our camera in hand and take tons of pictures at each game. This has given us many opportunities and allowed us to meet a ton of great people over the years. It is natural for us to include sports photography as a huge part of our business. We love it!
Well, my two kids play soccer, all the time, every season, all year long, sometimes on more than one team. This Spring season has been no different, with the exception that our oldest made the JV high school team at Southeast High School. He was one of the 6 freshmen on the team and we weren’t so sure what to expect. The parents were great and welcoming though and helped us figure our way through the season. The JV boys had the best record of the 3 boy teams of 8 -6, and were just really great guys. I took lots of pictures at all the games I could attend and was asked to put together a slideshow for their end of year banquet, which of course I did in true to Alexis form, finishing 5 minutes before we had to be there.
So family, friends, and those just curious….here it is… Enjoy!
