In honor of this sunny, spring-forward day, we’d like to share with you a wedding from another sunny day last September. Our decorator, Chrissy, married her sweetheart, Matt, during the Oktoberfest celebration in Frankenmuth, MI. We were just tickled to see their dirndl and lederhosen, not to mention their wedding steins– oh, and the sausages! Her rustic one-tiered cake was just enough to feed their intimate party. Chrissy procured the porcelain deer to top it off.
Herzlichen glückwunsch, Chrissy and Matt! (That’s good luck.)
Have you ever thought, “Our wedding is becoming a three ring circus?!” When Ilse’s fiance, Ken, said just that, the comment inspired this surprise cake for their rehearsal dinner. We’re glad he did too, because she’s quite the stunner.

We love this pale pink honeycomb beauty for Carly and David’s Planterra wedding. See if you can spot the little gold bee with poured sugar wings. For more of Carly and David’s wedding, check out Viva La Diva’s blog.

We are so happy to share with you Brooke and Sammy’s red carpet wedding at the historic Fox Theater. Every detail, including the towering cake, mirror the opulence of the lobby. The dessert tables were a collaborative effort with the Bride’s Detroit bakery, Love and Buttercream. We hope you’ll agree that the macaron towers are a wonderfully decadent flourish.
The groom’s cake is an edible homage to Detroit today. Look closely to see all of Brooke and Sammy’s favorite haunts! Does it include any of your favorites (or are you more of an American Coney fan)?
We love the cafe lights, fun foral, and big smiles at Jess and Ben’s outdoor Misty Farm wedding. As always Alison and her crew at Viva La Diva knocked it out of the park, and Jess + Nate captured it beautifully. Featured here is our mini-cupcake dessert table, macarons, and a buttercream cutting cake.
The proportions of this horizontal striped buttercream cake were just perfection, the 360° floral placement is breathtaking, and these photos by Lauren Gabrielle are beautiful. Macarons were a sweet final touch on each place setting. We hope you enjoy these photos of Lori and Josh’s Lovett Hall reception as much as we do.
It was so fun to receive these beautiful photos by Julie Pepin of Karissa and Cliff’s outdoor Michigan wedding (especially of the cake cutting)! We were able to do what we do best, and I think you’ll agree that the overall effect is stunning. Everything is edible– gum paste flowers, fondant bark & royal icing moss.
Sometimes we meet someone new in the industry and immediately we’re smitten. It was like that when we first struck up an Instagram friendship with Janelle of re:find joy in Chicago. Not long after, she was on a train to Ann Arbor to discuss her own upcoming wedding. Her whimsical sketchbook and quirky urchin inspiration were utterly enchanting. We love how just a little bit of creativity can transform our simple vintage buttercream wedding cake. Without further ado, here are a selection of shots by Julia Franzosa of Chris & Janelle’s mystical, magical backyard wedding.

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and we couldn’t help but feature a wedding that has all the charm of this saints’ day. One of the most adorable weddings this year had to be Liz and John. The talented Chelsea Brown took some incredible pictures of the day. We loved getting to make a two tiered ruffle buttercream cake in light pink, lots of mini cupcakes, precious french macarons in hues of gold and pink and gorgeous decorated sugar cookies. Liz took an awesome DIY approach and it sure paid off. She made an amazing back drop of glimmer-y circles, gold hearts and pompoms; set it all against a barn back drop decorated with big blush peonies and you get one charming wedding.
