Inspiration | Simple Takes the Cake

I think it is safe to assume that one of the best aspects of planning a wedding is tasting cakes. To be honest, I would get engaged right now just to schedule a few tastings! I remember in the 1980's when my mom and dad got married, the options were fairly limited. Three tier chocolate or vanilla cake with white frosting was the name of the game. Now in terms of flavor and design, brides and grooms are only limited by their creativity (and budget). Many of these cakes are truly works of art.

What I love about these cakes is that they are artistic and intricate, but also very simple and sleek. Another very sleek design is the drip cake. Most often the drip cake is a naked cake with exposed layers and minimal amounts of frosting, and a chocolate ganache or caramel topping that is allowed to drip down the sides. I mean, how incredible does this drip cake look by Whisk Until Sweet?!

All of these gorgeous options are made by vendors in the Dallas area! Check them out at Jar Cakery and Whisk Until Sweet and be inspired! Now go schedule yourself some cake tastings ;)

CHAKA + CJ | WESTON GARDENS IN BLOOM

Yay! It's #MarriedFaceMonday!

Excited cannot even begin to describe how stoked we are to share Chaka and CJ's wedding with you today! These two tied the knot last November with the most bohemian, nerd magic filled wedding of all time! We still aren't over it! We worked with these two as their coordinator and florist to create a day that was oh-so-magical!

Usually we share our favorite moment of the day, but with this one we can barely narrow it down to the top five!

First of all, every single detail was so lovingly design and handcrafted by the bride! From the signage, to the custom laser-cut place cards to her custom bridal gown, everything was tailored to scream Chaka and CJ!

If we were forced to pick a favorite moment, it would definitely be their first look! Even months later, I can't look at the images without getting misty eyed! These two are so so in love and it just radiates out of them!

The ceremony took place in a magical hidden garden space where we lined the aisle with vintage rugs and the two did a 'whisky aging ceremony' instead of the typical unity candle!

We loved designing romantic, wine colored florals to play off the garden setting and give Chaka the boho-flower-child-bride dream she described to us! Lots of romantic candlelight to wash over guests as the sunset; it was pure magic.

And finally, the freaking music! These two had one of the best wedding playlists of all time. The dance floor was packed all night and guests went crazy! Jeff of Forerunner Entertainment worked his DJ-magic and it was a blast from beginning to end!

Kevin + Stephanie captured every moment so beautifully! Be sure to stalk the full gallery and vendor team below! (Seriously, every image is a stunner!!!)
