A cake with rich autumn colors for an October wedding
I’ve noticed that when I meet with brides, grooms, and coordinators, they often look through my photographs for inspiration as they plan their weddings. I thought it might be a fun idea to start a new feature here with wedding ideas. Because I’m a sweet tooth, I thought it was appropriate to start with cakes! Here are some memorable cakes and cake alternatives that I’ve seen over the last couple years. Enjoy!
