Our Wedding

Lovely Tonight: A Very Sweet Arrival

Before I went into hiding, an extremely important (and wonderful) delivery was made to the venue. The cake. Oh, the cake. Now, I realize that I am not the first Bee to get insanely excited about her cake…cough cough…Mrs. Hamster…cough cough…but I seriously almost lost it when our cake baker arrived with my 3 tiers of gorgeous-ness…

I pretty much started cheering at the sight of it. I almost wanted to cry.

I completely dropped what I was doing and followed Nomeda, from Cakes by Nomeda, to the cake table. She placed my cake topper on as I stood in awe of her masterpiece.

Honestly, my expectations for the cake were not only met, they were exceeded exponentially. Nomeda had been excited about my lacework inspiration photos, but I had absolutely no idea that my cake would turn out this extraordinary. I almost didn’t want to cut into it later on in the evening! I mean…come on – just look at it!

Every single lace detail was piped by hand by Nomeda…I can’t imagine how long this took her – it is so perfect!

Of course, we can’t forget my cake topper from Vintage by Crystal, which I think matched the cake perfectly! The little vintage birds stole my heart from the moment I first saw them months ago…


I don’t know if a prettier cake will ever exist in this world. I do realize I am biased though…

The girls got ready, then the guys got ready.

I became a bride, but our first look wasn’t what I’d hoped.

We took some photos alone and then with our bridal party.

Everyone hopped on the trolley and we took some family portraits.
