I can truly say that many of my dreams came true on our wedding day. From marrying a man that I love with my whole heart down to the cake, it was perfect. Since you have heard plenty about Mr. Dalmatian, let’s talk a little more about the cake! You may recall that after sifting through A LOT of cake-spiration I landed on my dream design of a pink ombre cake.
Well, Patty Cakes did an unbelievable job bringing this inspiration to life. Words cannot describe this dessert masterpiece so I will now turn to pictures.
One of the many things that I adored about our venue was the fact that it had a room solely for displaying the wedding cake—chandelier and all! Now let’s get a little closer…
…and a little closer still…
Don’t you just want to dive on into that divine frosting! While the frosting was definitely my favorite part, let’s also take a look at the cake accessories for those of you whose sweet tooth is not as strong as mine. On top of the cake was the same cake topper that topped my parent’s wedding cake in 1977.
Next to the cake were the vintage dessert plates that I collected, which the cake was later served on.
Okay, okay, that’s enough cake admiration. Time to cut in and take a bite!
As you can see, we went with the feeding each other with forks option as opposed to the smashing it in each other’s face option. We had actually not discussed this beforehand, but I’m glad we were on the same page when the moment came. After all, I wouldn’t have wanted any of that amazing cake to have gone to waste on my face instead of in my mouth!
We then washed down our first bites of cake with champagne from a very special set of toasting flutes. You see, my sisters and I have always had a fondness for sparkly things and for those of you who know Swarovski crystals, you know that they fall into this category. So when Sister A came across the stunning Swarovski Toasting Flutes when she was engaged, her heart was aflutter. Of course, their sparkly wonder cost a pretty penny. But Mama Dalmatian saw the opportunity to create a very meaningful memento for our family, and very generously purchased the toasting flutes. She wanted them to be something that could be used at each of her three daughters’ weddings as a special link between us. Needless to say, I was very honored and excited to put them to use on our big day.
