Floral Galore

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.

Air & Sea Backyard Wedding

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.
