The days of the smiling, plastic, generic bride and groom cake toppers are over! More and more, we see brides and grooms upping the ante on cake decor with customizations that express their personalities. The traditional topper is now being transformed into a quirky joke, while some couples choose to do without the plastic all together — opting for a personalized wire, lego creation or a pair of lovebirds. No matter the style, we’re so excited to see our couples having fun and getting creative!
Tracing back to the Victorian era in England, groom’s cakes have continued to be a popular wedding tradition. In the Victorian era, it was thought that if an unmarried woman sleeps with a slice of the groom’s cake under her pillow, she will dream of her future husband. Today, the groom’s cake typically represents the groom’s interests and hobbies!
It’s that time of year again…When the smell of fresh pine lingers in the brisk winter air, hot chocolate becomes a warm, welcomed daily treat, and christmas has it’s very own radio station! Needless to say, the holiday season is something I look forward to each and every year. And, nothing gets me in the holiday spirit more than gorgeous, winter wedding details in cranberry reds, blacks, silvers and golds! Xo, Courtney
Today’s wedding color inspiration is an homage to one of our favorite holiday’s — Thanksgiving! And, in celebration of this homely holiday we decided to add a fun, fresh take to the traditional turkey day colors. Accenting the warm fall browns, oranges and creams is a color that we don’t typically see at many weddings, aqua. While a powerful color alone, aqua adds the perfect touch to any soft-hued fall wedding palette!
As the air cools down and the leaves blanket the ground, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to commemorate fall with this DIY wedding decoration! With two chairs, a wood frame, garland, and pumpkins this chic bride and groom were able to create the perfect rustic fall table assignment!

If you asked me what this season’s most popular wedding color has been, PURPLE would definitely be at the top of the list. From the minute details to the bridesmaids gowns, we are seeing purple incorporated into almost every wedding we capture. So, we did some research and found out that purple is uplifting, calms the mind and nerves, encourages a sense of spirituality, and supports creativity (via homefurnishings.com). It seems as though purple provokes the perfect combination of wedding day emotions, and we’re all for it!
