Premier Bride Featured Vendor – Chiffonos Bakery

Chiffonos Bakery specializes in “chocolate wrapped” wedding and special occasion cakes, cupcakes and made from scratch desserts. They also offer organic Santa Cruz Coffee Roasting Company coffee, which is brewed by the cup when ordered in our specialty coffee bar.

What is a “chocolate wrapped” cake?

Chiffonos Bakery “sheets” white or dark chocolate into a thin layer (think wrapping paper) then “wraps” it around your cake. They can make it smooth or ruffled and can tint white chocolate to your event colors. They also make chocolate roses that can be added to your cake along with cut-outs like stars, hearts and polka dots. Please take a look at our pictures of chocolate wrapped cakes. We also have pictures on our facebook page at

Chiffonos Bakery “Wrapped” Cake

About Chiffonos cakes
All of Chiffonos cakes are made from scratch on premises from recipes developed by Chiffonos. We use only the finest ingredients, like unsalted butter, real eggs, natural flavors and guittard chocolates. All of our standard cake flavors can be used for your wedding cake except fresh fruit fillings.

Chiffonos specializes in “chocolate wrapped” wedding cakes, this is an actual chocolate wrap and not fondant. Dark or white chocolate is wrapped around your cake to create a unique finish that tastes as good as it looks. The chocolate wrap can be smooth or ruffled and can be tinted to your wedding colors. Hand made chocolate roses are also available.

Premier Bride Featured Vendor – Lewis Travel

Premier Bride Featured Vendor – Lewis Travel

In 1958, Ellsworth and Lillian Lewis, along with their children, returned to Central California after serving several years of missionary service in Africa. Ellsworth and Lillian returned with a rich appreciation for foreign travel and naturally gravitated towards incorporating travel into their life work. Within a year they opened the Lewis Travel Agency in the small community of Visalia, California.

Anchored by a commitment to provide superior customer service, Lewis Travel grew steadily over the years. In the mid 70’s, son Mark entered the family business and began a front line education that rapidly cemented an equally strong commitment to customer service. By the time full control of the company was turned over to Mark in the mid 80’s, he was already deeply entrenched in expanding the scope of Lewis Travel into the communities of Fresno and Clovis, California. Lewis Travel soon became one of the largest travel agencies in the area.

Major changes in travel industry dynamics during the 90’s opened the door to greatly enhance the position of Lewis Travel in Central California. From 1997 to 2006, several of the other largest and most prestigious travel agencies located in Fresno merged into the Lewis Travel organization. The marriage of strong, like-minded travel agencies gave rise to Lewis Travel & Cruises, Central California’s travel agency leader with annual sales of over $10 million.

In August 2010, Lewis Travel & Cruises became an ALTOUR company and, in so doing, became a part of one of the largest travel planning companies in the world. Our local team is the same, but now, more than ever, we have the resources in both our Fresno and Visalia offices to provide discriminating travelers with the best service and value for tours, cruises and individual vacation arrangements – worldwide.

Several years ago with a series of moves designed to solidify its position as the Valley’s largest provider of travel services, Mark Lewis of the Mark Lewis Travel Network brought together six established travel companies. Mark Lewis Travel, Beck & Duke Travel, A&D Travel, Tacchino Travel, and Tuschka-Lippert Travel merged to form Lewis Travel & Cruises.

In August 2010, Lewis Travel further solidified their position as the Central Valley’s travel industry leader by becoming a part of the $1 billion industry giant ALTOUR. “Bringing several of the major travel leaders together several years ago provided the opportunity to elevate our service capabilities.” Mr. Lewis said, “Adding the alliance with ALTOUR elevates our service even further. Additionally, ALTOUR has created for us a tremendous buying power advantage. Increased size, and therefore volume, allows us to negotiate better pricing from travel suppliers. Better prices for us translates to better value for our customers.”

ALTOUR’s Central Valley offices are located at 2788 W. Bullard Avenue in Fresno and 310 W. Center Street in Visalia.
