A few weeks ago I was honored to stand beside one of my best friends when she married her soulmate. The wedding was one of the most beautiful celebrations I’ve ever been to, and I couldn’t get over her color choices. She has such an eye for elegance and the day radiated class and romance. Weddings with black dresses were not new to me, but it was new to see one done in the warm month of August. So today’s topic is all about a wedding color palette centered around this sophisticated color.

Well, while I continue to sway back and forth in my consideration, take a gander on some rustic cake toppers I’ve discovered on Pinterest and Etsy which might just take the cake… (See what I did there?)

G’s aunt has graciously offered to bake our wedding cake and cupcake treats for the wedding so scratch finding a local bakery off the list! (Thankfully! I honestly was not looking forward to going around taste-testing numerous cakes or other treats with the holiday season coming up. Ohmigoodness…) And I have heard amazing things about Aunt P’s baking skills so I feel completely at ease knowing another item is off the to-do list.
