Here comes the Bride

Ah, the romance,the feeling of walking on air.  What actually makes a Wedding?  The families, the flowers, the music, the families, the pictures, the smiles and again, the families. I fortunately have not had my boys to the alter with a bride, So, I am far from an expert, just because I am married, doesn’t make more knowledgable.  Far from it!

Recently, one of my middle son’s childhood friend took the plunge and I was privileged to make her cakes.  The groom is a big Beatles fan so, the cake was a guitar and a 45lp record decorated the cream cheese buttercream over carrot cake.

The bride requested a three tier mint colored, fondant covered strawberry cake.image

The bride was lovely in an ivory strapless, flowing gown.  The bridesmaids wore mint one sleeve gowns, the flower girl wore a gold, beige tulle dress. That precious child had curly, flaming red hair.  The best dressed amongst them was the brides one year old nephew.  He was dapper in a suspendered short outfit with a bow tie and matching hat. The best part was that he was pulled down the aisle in a wagon!  The bride’s father presided over the ceremony, so needless to say it was far from serious.  What a comedian.  The bride’s mother and grandmother worked their tails off.  The food was yummy and the decor was simple and elegant.

its all about the families.  Hope it made you smile.  Love ya, mean it
