The bride wanted to incorporate her love of sugary things into the wedding–just take a look at her sweets bar! But what really stood out was the wedding cake, whipped up and decorated by Sue Ann’s Bakery. The simple white-on-white lace and monogram design was topped with peonies and definitely makes my list of favorite cakes featured on the blog. The couple even chose to have sheet cakes of Funfetti made! I know Katharine + Kyle would agree this was a great decision. Lace and pretty peony and hydrangea floral arrangements put together by Roses are Red decorated the tables at the groom’s grandparents’ house. At the end of the night, the newlyweds were surprised with fireworks! Together now: oooh, aaah.
Tell us about finding your wedding dress: I went with my mom and sister to Priscilla of Boston on a weekend my sister was home from Chicago. I tried on five dresses and I saved my favorite one for last. As soon as I put it on I knew it was the one! My mom and sister were both crying — it was really cute.
Describe your wedding cake: I love sweets so the cake was a big deal to me! Sue Ann’s bakery did an AMAZING job! All of the flavors were delicious and they even made sheet cakes of Funfetti since it’s my favorite ever! The design of the cake turned out perfect and exactly what I had envisioned.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? Getting everything done! We thought having a backyard wedding would be simple and easy—oh how wrong we were! I owe it all to my mom, she is amazing and spent countless hours researching and planning and we couldn’t have done it without her!
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Charlie’s uncle and grandfather surprised us with fireworks! The whole wedding went by super fast but during the fireworks, it felt like everything slowed down and it was just the two of us together.
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? My favorite line from Charlie’s vows was “I will treasure you always, just as I do at this moment.”
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you looking forward to in the future? We are in the process of buying a house at the beach! It’s a fixer-upper which should be interesting since neither of us is handy. It’s going to be so cute once it’s fixed up, though, and we are so excited!
