Yesterday’s beautiful dogwood wedding cake reminded of this gorgeous bouquet created by Saipua. Pastel shades make for a great spring wedding color palette. Don’t you just love all the little dogwood blooms sprinkled throughout? It’s always such a refreshing sight when I see these little gems start to bloom in Atlanta. It’s one of the first signs spring is coming.
One of our fellow wedding bloggers, Ritzy Bee, recently tied the knot with her husband at the home they built together in Virginia. She was kind enough to share some more details behind their sweet and simple ceremony at home…
I recently got married…but kept things very small + very quiet in a bit of sweet irony with my profession. We actually tied the knot in our backyard of the house we just finished building and moved into…just the two of us but celebrated with cake, champagne and then a fun, fancy dinner out. We planted a dogwood tree (it’s the Virginia state tree + flower) together when we moved into the house which is the inspiration behind the cake design. The bottom tier pear cake with blackberry preserves and white chocolate buttercream. The top tier was white velvet cake with chopped chocolate and peanut butter buttercream. The champagne coupes were Josh’s grandmothers while the cake server were my great grandmother’s.
While we’re on a roll with wedding stationery ideas for you over the last few weeks, we just had to share one more invitation suite from our Once Wed Magazine. We love it so much. This quirky, playful suite was hand-painted in watercolor by Happy Menocal. (What an appropriate name, right??) It has such a fun color palette. Can you imagine what the wedding might be like??
