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!

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

Lou Ellen and Jeff | Sonnet House | Birmingham Wedding Video

Wow, what can I say about this couple!  I loved them!  They were the kind of couple that you want to hang out with after the wedding.  You want us to come over for Thanksgiving, sure.  THAT kind of couple.  They were getting married for alll of the right reasons.  They loved each other so much and it shows all throughout the video. 

Lou Ellen and Jeff assembled a great team for their wedding, held atThe Sonnet House in Leeds, AL.  Together with their photographer, Brandon Gresham of Gresham Photography, we were able to capture their true love all day in a fun atmosphere.  Every girls' dream! Watch their highlights and see if you just don't smile.

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

Betsy & Jonathan | The Sonnet House

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!

Abbie + Chris | The Sonnet House

I'm telling you - I am loving these afternoon weddings!  When you have a beautiful venue with a beautiful couple, you just can't go wrong.  Oh wait, add in fantastic photographers, and you really have it made!  Now of course, these screen shots can't compare to the Gresham's (Gresham Photography), but I hope that it will give you a glimpse into Abbie and Chris's wonderful wedding day!

A special thanks to Neillie Butler with Mairee Ami Wedding Planning on a job well done, Feel the Beat, Barb's Cakes, KG Designs and Kathy G Catering!  What a great team!




Melissa + TJ: The Sonnet House

Once again, we find ourselves at the beautiful Sonnet House.  This time is it early Sunday morning.  John and I were married 10 years ago in the morning and I still LOVE the idea.   It was a little chilly to start, but the day was grand!  
Hands down, BEST.DRESS.EVER!  Sorry to my other brides, but I really loved Melissa's short wedding dress!  It was perfect for her.  She even had pockets to keep her lipstick!  Kudos to the White Room, they hit it out of the park on this one.  She looked gorgeous and a little sassy!
After the ceremony, Melissa and TJ shared mimosas with their guests, while Iz Catering served brunch!  Naturally they would cater the wedding as they are family and Melissa's workplace!  You can't go wrong with Iz (anything and everything)! They also have a great venue that is perfect for rehearsal dinners and receptions.
Mark Parker was the photographer that morning.  Our paths had crossed several times before, but we never had the opportunity to work a wedding together.  He was gracious to let us shadow him during the pre-wedding pictures.

Taylor & Johnny: The Sonnet House
So I was told that in Beverly Andrews' (Engaging Celebrations) 15 year history of planning weddings, that she never had had a wedding rained out.  But it really did look like rain for Saturday, so a tent was ordered, set up and decorated.  When we arrived at the Sonnet House to start getting ready coverage for the beautiful Taylor, the weather was perfect!  And it stayed that way until they were leaving when a little mist started.  You couldn't have asked for better weather or for a more beautiful wedding!  Every detail was handled perfectly by Beverly and her staff.  I always say this, but when you have a professional wedding planner caring for your wedding, it runs so much smoother.  HIRE A PROFESSIONAL WEDDING PLANNER!




A few years ago, we worked with Angela Karen Photography for the 1st time.  We were so happy to be able to do so again this weekend!  And it was so much fun!  I know that we were able to get some amazing footage so I know they did too!




Olexa's crafted the most beautiful wedding cake, and of course, it was delicious!  For guest favors, Pastry Arts put 2 baby bites into a take home box!  Soooo cute!  Vince with FlowerStems arranged amazing flowers, with beautiful Fall colors.  And finally, all of the guests had a wonderful time dancing to Nationwide Coverage!
