I think one of the best trends over the past few years has been on groom's cakes. A little while back, I did a post about showing school spirit in the creating of a groom's cake, but sometimes we see that it goes so much further than that. And it's fun! Plus look at the talent and creativity right here in the South!
Here are my favorite (and off-beat) groom's cakes, in no particular order...
It was love at first sight. Maybe not really for the bride and groom, but for me when I first met Anna Laura. After 15 minutes of talking with her, I knew that we wanted to be a part of their wedding day. I was so happy when she picked us! There were so many wonderful details that were going to give the day that extra special touch. And I have to say, even though I was talking with basically royalty, I felt that I was chatting with my closest girlfriends. Anna Laura has that effect on people, even with all of her accolades through the Miss Alabama pageants.
She was well on her way to assembling an awesome wedding team. I don't know if I can say it enough - it really does make a difference when you pick quality, "great" vendors. Everyone works together to make sure the desired result is achieved - making the bride, groom and their families have the perfect wedding day! Ashley with I Do, I Do Wedding Planning planned an amazing Reid Chapel ceremony with a fun reception at B & A Warehouse, both in Birmingham, AL.
My favorite part of her wedding film was when the flower girl kept glancing at Dave when his bride was walking down the aisle. Watch it for yourself and see. Sooo cute!! What's your favorite part?

It was a beautiful Fall day at The Sonnet House. Our bride was relaxed and beautiful (Brittany Benton Massey on makeup). The photographer (Amanda Pair) was wonderful and very good at her job. The flowers (Lillie's) were breathtaking. Ceremony music was provided by Act of Congress and the reception band (Nationwide Coverage) didn't disappoint. B & A Warehouse catered the reception and Barb's Cakes made a delicious and beautiful wedding cake. It could not have been a better day!
Here is a link to the photographer's pictures from the wedding. Enjoy! They are gorgeous!
Caitlin and Jeff were married at Shades Mt. Baptist Church surrounded by all of their family and friends (and a beautiful arbor arrangement by Carol with Lillie's Flowers). For their reception, Feel the Beat entertained the guests at B & A Warehouse.
We got some amazing footage of a great wedding. Everyone was having so much fun! It was also great working with fabulous photographers, Brandon and Stacey Gresham. And we even saw a former bride and groom (Jennifer and Jordan Wilkes) at the wedding! Fun times!!
Morgan and Jeremy had a beautiful ceremony at St. Mark United Methodist Church in Vestavia. And let me tell you, Morgan looked beautiful! I absolutely loved her dress!!!! Their reception was held downtown at B & A Warehouse, where their many guests all had a wonderful time mingling and listening to the band. Joe Breckenridge and his band was not our "typical" band that we have seen recently - he was a little more bluegrass, but he had a nice mix of blues and traditional music. It kept everyone dancing! Here is a link to some of the fun footage that we captured during one of the songs. This groomsmen was quite a dancer!!!
