Real Weddings: Kari + Tom

This photo collection features Kari and Tom Brockmeyer, who were married on August 25, 2018. Kari was our winner of our photo contest where we asked couples to send photos of the most unique part of their wedding day. The bride requested that her sister perform an interesting stunt while on stage for her speech at the reception. Kari had convinced her to have a trained hawk fly in over the guests and land on her sister’s arm! That’s certainly not something you see every day. The Ceremony took place at Sts. Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church in Easton, Maryland and the reception was held at the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Marina, and Spa in Cambridge, Maryland. Flip through the photo gallery and find inspiration for your own wedding style and planning.

A Cake For Every Bride 🍰

If you didn’t already know it, there are tons of options when it comes to your wedding cake. Infinite choices of flavor, color, design, size and shape. You name it, it's out there! Here are a few ideas to consider.

You’ve Got Great Taste!

The flavor of your wedding cake can be as simple or as complex as you want it to be. It can get overwhelming with all of the choices and you may not want to taste every single concoction, especially when there’s a dress you’ll be wanting to fit into on your special day! POPSUGAR has compiled a useful flavors chart that breaks down flavor combinations to help guide you with your decision. Be sure to also get help from your Cake Designer if you are working with one to ensure a satisfactory outcome. Check out the chart here!


Raise The Stakes…With Cake!

With all of the different styles of cake design out there, you are bound to find something that suits your fancy. Here’s a little inspiration to get you going.

Au Naturel The Naked Cake is quite a popular style these days. This style keeps your cake looking fresh and simple and works great with the addition of fresh fruit or real flowers that go along with your wedding theme. 


Metallic Flare Metallic accents on your cake can create an elegant and upscale feel to your cake. Hints of gold, silver, copper, rose gold, you name it! If you like a multi-tiered cake, mix and match a solid metallic tier with simpler tiers for extra oomph.

 


Painterly Strokes If you and your significant other have an appreciation for creative talent, show it off with a hand painted cake. Use a sentimental scene or keep it abstract for a more modern look.

 


Beauty is on the Inside Who says all the fancy stuff has to be on the outside of your cake? Give your cake several layers of different colors to create an Ombre look or coordinate the layers with your wedding theme. 


Unique Alternatives There’s no law that says your wedding has to serve Wedding Cake. If you’re not exactly a fan of cake, make it a lovely display of macarons, cupcakes, cookies, donuts, pies, even cheese!


Top It With Love!

Cake toppers come in an array of styles from simple and sophisticated to dreamy and whimsical. Show off a little personality with your toppers. They can be edible, made out of twigs or stones, shaped with wire, cut out of wood and much more.
