5 pretty awesome groom's cakes

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...

1 - A drum set by Barb's Cakes at a recent B & A Warehouse wedding.  

2. Are you a world traveler?  Olexa's can make this fun cake for you!  Thanks B & A Warehouse!

3. Passion for fishing? This cake by Magnificent Cakes is perfect for you! Shared from The Sonnet House.

4. Whiskey anyone?  I can't locate the baker but Arden Photography at Windwood Equestrian was able to capture it before guests "drank" it! 

5. Ok, this might be my favorite. I love Charlie!!! Thank you Ann Wade Photography for sharing. Cake made by The Frosted Affair!

Ginna and Ty | Mountain Brook Country Club

Ginna is one of those people that you can see across the room and instantly know that you are going to love her.  She has a smile that can light up any darkness!  We were so honored when she and Ty chose Main Street to be a part of their wedding.  From the lovely flowers by Lillie Jane to dancing the night away with wedding band Az-Izz, the day was flawless.  That might have also had something to do with wedding planner, Anita Kanellis. Watch the video and see Ginna's dad serenading his bride on stage with the band.  I'm so glad that we were there to capture that PRICELESS moment.

Kate and Jonathan | B & A Warehouse | Birmingham Wedding Video

Kate is pretty awesome.  She and Jonathan truly are a match made in heaven!  We loved working with their families!  This is what she had to say about her film: "Angela I am at a loss of words. You and john and your team really made our wedding into one of the most beautiful memories I have. Thank you for hard work, caring for details, and expressing such talented creativity. We love it." - from bride Kate.

Michelle and Donnie | Sunday afternoon wedding at the Sonnet House | Birmingham Wedding Video

Michelle and Donnie have a beautiful love story.  We were so thrilled to be a part of their Sunday afternoon wedding at The Sonnet House, in Leeds, Alabama.  

"Michelle chose soft, neutral colors for her wedding. For her bridesmaid’s dresses she handed out paint chips to her girls with the color palette she wanted. The result as each bridesmaid wearing a beautiful dress {in the proper color scheme} that was perfect for her body and most likely a dress they will wear again. The flowers were romantic, whimsical blooms and garlands perfect for a fall day." - The Sonnet House.  To read more, click here

Engaged, A Wedding Library located at 1018 Oxmoor Road in Homewood, AL, is the perfect place to go for valuable resources while planning your wedding.  Sure, you can find loads of information online, but sometimes, sitting down with someone and letting them help you organize your things-to-do list is invaluable.  And the ladies at Engaged are really great at being that calming presence in your life.

Twice a year they do Sweet Saturday.  Sweet Saturday allows you to sample cake bites from several different bakeries in the Birmingham area.  This month they have 5 artists featured - Dreamcakes (Homewood), Evelyn Criswell Catering (Springville), Cakes by Kim (McCalla), Pastry Art Bake Shoppe (Inverness and Homewood), and Olexa's (Mountain Brook).  

Not only will it save you time picking the perfect cake artist for your wedding day, but it is also a pretty fun day too!  Mark your calendar for this Saturday (February 21) from 11 - 3.  I'm told no appointment is necessary for this wonderful (and free) event!  Thanks Engaged ladies!  Main Street loves you! Questions:  Call Katie at 205-637-0735.

Main Street Productions understands and believes in the emotions of life. We bring these emotions to our art and look forward to presenting you a glimpse into your own past." - John Deaver, Main Street Productions

Michael and Heather | The Highlights | American Village

Michael has a smile that makes you want to smile. Beautiful Heather has this way that she looks at her groom.  Their love is just contagious!  It really was a picture perfect day at the American Village.  It wasn't too cold, wasn't too hot, it was just right for a magical wedding.  And Michael gets the award for BEST REACTION EVER TO HIS BRIDE WALKING DOWN THE AISLE!!

I would say that it was an all-star team on their wedding; we were just so happy to be included in with everyone!  It never gets old when a couple chooses us to share in their wedding day. With a romantic ceremony in the chapel and a fun barn reception, it was a day that this couple (and their families) will always treasure.  

Enjoy their wedding highlights below!
