Party planners at Maximum Events specialize in decking out dessert tables in delicious sweets personalized with eye-pleasing icing. A changing selection of cupcakes may include such tasty classics such as vanilla cake with buttercream frosting or chocolate cake with chocolate ganache. Unlike black velvet, which makes for a great bathrobe but tastes like fabric, the red-velvet cupcake makes for a poor bathrobe but delights diners with a rich red crumb and a velvety cap of cream cheese. Selecting a variety of inventive flavors such as the raspberry champagne or coconut-pineapple meringue treats taste buds to sweetness and the best kind of spice—variety.

New York Institute of Photography graduate Jeffrey Brown and his aesthetically savvy wife Jamie put women at ease during sultry boudoir sessions emphasizing confidence and comfort. A consultation precedes each one-hour shoot, allowing subjects to choose their wardrobe, aesthetic, and the physical features they wish to highlight. Photos are captured "in the round" within an elegant camera room that boasts a decorative array of specialty vignettes and sets. About two weeks following the shoot, photos are unveiled in the multimedia room so models can choose which setup they’d like to use for their custom 8"x10" portrait. The Incognito Portrait Design studio is nestled in a luxurious New York–style loft decorated with breathtaking wall portraits, soothing music, and a dressing suite armed with a battalion of cosmetic amenities, including blow dryers, curling irons, and hair products. The value of the 8"x10" portrait can be used toward a custom wall décor portrait, and all snapshot subjects should call ahead of an appointment.
The Perkins Stone Mansion was originally commissioned by Colonel Simon Perkins, the son of Akron's founder.

It features numerous architectural highlights, including a two-story portico, elliptical frieze windows, and intricate interior woodwork. The historical site serves as a testament to Perkins' family history and the history of Akron and Summit County.
