Wedding elements are ideally an expression of your personality, and with as much personality as two individuals can have, newlyweds Jenny and Dave Gerber took the cakeâ€”literally!A masterful creation by our very own vendor, Itâ€™s all about the Cake, was a central conversation piece at their wedding. Jenny and Dave had two individual weddings cakes made: a sweet, pristine butter cream castle for herâ€¦and a mean, rich, chocolate machine in the shape of a tire for him. As if the opposing looks werenâ€™t enough, Daveâ€™s chocolate wheel seemed to spray a muddy chocolate mess all over Jennyâ€™s genteel princess tiers.
As people work more and more to break away from the traditional Queen Victoria white wedding, we see adaptations by different couples trying for a more avant-garde approach. The still-underground trend slowly rising toward the surface is his-and-her wedding cakes. Sometimes the cakes come in one well-executed mashup, some with independent hemispheres, some broken up tier by tier and others, like the Gerbersâ€™ featured cake, are entirely separate cakes. The cakes serve as a focal point at the receptions, made sometimes to complement, and other times to serve as satirical representations, of the romance.And couples donâ€™t limit themselves to a cake platformâ€”weâ€™ve seen cupcakes, cake pops and an array of other decadent wedding treats join in on the fun.What better dessert than the personification of your loved one to stuff into his or her face?

Youâ€™re engagedâ€”how exciting! Have the constant wedding daydreams kicked in yet? You imagine your friends and family smiling as you and your beloved share your first kiss as husband and wife, followed by the best reception celebration of your life (maybe in the world). Obviously youâ€™ll want pictures of every special moment to share and walk down memory lane years after walking up the aisle hand in hand.Choosing a photographer is one of the most important decisions of your wedding planning process. We strongly (strongly) suggest using a professional. Your Uncle Ned or your amateur photographer friend Sally may have fancy cameras and take great pictures, but do they have the skills specific to working a wedding? Can they knock out all the family shots, bridal party shots and wedding couple shots in one hourâ€”in addition to capturing every major moment as it happens? Remember, you canâ€™t share that first kiss twice if they fail to get the perfect shot the first time. Trust us, you donâ€™t need that stress on your wedding day.
To help ensure that our couples get awe-inspiring, grab-the-Kleenex beautiful wedding pictures, Wedgewood started offering professional photography package options.
