Wedding Wednesdays: Wedding Cake Wonder

The Wedding Cake.  A tradition and symbol of the wedding reception.  It can be one of the most beautiful focal points of the entire event...or it could be an utter disaster!  If you won't take my word for it..just take a moment to google wedding cake fails.  It's not pretty people...I warned you!

I consider myself pretty lucky to be a wedding planner in Charleston, because we have some killer vendors who make the most beautiful and delicious cakes on the planet! (okay so I may be a little bit partial...)  However, there is so much talent out there and everywhere I turn, I'm swooning over some beautiful cake on Instagram.  So not to look like some weird obsessed cake lady and post and re-post my favorite cakes the moment I see one (You're welcome!) I am sharing with you what are some of my newest favs in the cake department.

Choosing these little slices of inspiration weren't hard to do.  As a matter of fact...it was a cake walk!  (Sorry...I had to!) 

I hope you guys enjoy and watch out for your keyboards...because I guarantee there will be a little bit of drooling going on!

This wedding cake is actually from my wedding.  The amazingly talented  Jim Smeal  did this cake and hand did the lace to replicate my veil, which my Mom wore on her wedding day.  I've never seen such talent on a butter cream cake than his cakes!

Red, White and Blue Chic - Patriotic Rooms All Year Round

I can't believe it's almost the 4th of July already!  This means that we are only six months away from Christmas (Call me Hobby Lobby, but I start the count down after the 4th).  The 4th of July is a great time to get together with family, grill out and wear your red, white and blue.  But many people think that this color combination should only be admired this one time of the year.  However, I would like to show you all how wonderful and chic red, white and blue can be year round, with these amazing examples below by some very talented designers.
