A Whimsical Wedding

Last weekend I attended a wonderfully unique wedding reception of a long-time childhood friend, Tess Blackwelder, now Barlow. I was so bummed I still don't own a camera (r.i.p. cannon powereshot) because I really wanted to take pictures of some fun things I saw. Lucky for me, there's this blessed thing called Facebook that allows me to snatch pictures from everyone else.

Her cake is what excited me the most. While I myself would never even dream of having a mushroom cake at my wedding, it was just so Tess! I think that's what I liked about her reception. Everything was so her! Tess is like this incredible mushroom scientist or something and so it was only fitting that her cake be covered in these tasty little mushroom meringues.

The rest of her wedding reception was just as whimsical. The tables were lined with clear glass plates, antique napkins, garden flowers, and air ferns, with firefly lights overhead, and a few gnomes scattered about. Her colors were these gorgeous shades of raspberry and chartreuse, grounded with linen and a bright white. It was definitely something different and got me thinking about my own style and what my wedding reception will look like someday...that is, if I don't elope.
