Advice for Wedding Planning

Mike and I have been in Michigan all week and are attending a wedding today in Davison!  I love weddings, though there’s always a part of me that compares every wedding I’ve been to with my own.  Mike and I had a medium sized wedding.  We invited more than 200 people and around 150 RSVPd […]

Wedding Day: Part 4

Last but not least, the reception! Everyone in our wedding party entered to a different song. My bridesmaids from FSU entered to the fight song. Our ushers entered to So Fresh and So Clean, the Flower Girl, Ring Bearer, and Junior Bridemaid and Groomsmen entered to Brighter than the Sun, and the rest of the […]

Wedding Day: Part 3

After the ceremony, we had to wait for cocktail hour and for people to take their seats. The original plan was for Mike and I and the wedding party to head outside to the Municipal Center’s gardens. They have a beautiful creek area and some lovely greenery. But the heat was just too much and […]

A Year Ago Today…

A year ago today, Mike surprised me at my internship, cookie cake in hand, and popped the question. Naturally I was more excited about the cookie cake. LAWL JK. Kind of. (He also had a bouquet of flowers and gorgeous diamond, obvi). I hiked 3 miles up a mountain before I figured out what was […]

A Few Good Cakes

In the wake of our epic grooms cake failure, our wedding day baker was a huge success and I could not be more grateful to our wedding planners for recommending her. Not only did she make me a beautiful wedding cake and a great grooms cake for Mike the day of the wedding, she also made favors […]

A Grooms Cake Disaster

So, one of the few things Mike actually requested for the wedding was a very specific groom’s cake. I conceded, and actually liked the one he chose. It was funny and definitely suited his personality. The bakery we initially chose to create it ended up not being a viable option due to their location and […]
