Let Them Eat Cake: When Wedding Cake Becomes Child's Play

My Mom always told me not to play with my food, but who could follow that advice when you see such a quirky, kicky fun wedding cake grouping? Joanna and Sean's wedding cakes were a delight, with their bright colors and their Fisher Price-inspired doppelganger cake toppers! DIYva Designs, thanks for the sweet inspiration, and for more great ideas for wedding day and beyond, read DIYva's Sugar and Art Blog:)

Let Them Eat Cake: The Stare Down, Starring Bride Jennifer and Groom Paul

On your typical wedding day, brides and grooms have an enormous mental checklist running through their heads. With all of the stress and planning, it's only natural to want to blow off a little steam, and that's what makes the wedding cake cutting ritual such a high-risk undertaking. Will they or won't they do a full-on cake-smash?? For Jennifer and Paul, they'd make it to the end of the cake cutting, tenderly feeding each other delicate fork fulls of sugary wedding cake. But, then, somehow, it went to a scary place when Paul, with a glimmer in his eye and frosting on his ring finger tip, took aim at our fair bride. Jennifer, though, successfully stared down the frosting-laden digit and a wedding cake tragedy was avoided:)

Where Water and Sky Meet - Charleston, South Carolina

Any time on a boat is a good time, and when a sunset cruise turns into a nighttime journey, it's an opportunity to capture the beauty of water meeting sky, all illuminated by moonlight. Thanks to all at the Carolina Girl of Charleston, SC.
