Wedding Cake Wednesday | Jacksonville, Florida | Wedding Photographer

Jacksonville Wedding

I had the opportunity to attend and photograph a wedding in Jacksonville, Florida this past April.  How beautiful, yet simple is this wedding cake? The cake topper was such an elegant touch to this shabby chic affair.  Congrats again you two lovebirds!  Your wedding was a blast.

Wedding Trend Tuesday | Saint Cloud, Florida Wedding | Cobblestone Events & Rentals

Mr and Mrs Frazer edible favors

Today for Wedding Trend Tuesday we are highlighting Tina and Jim’s wedding favors from their Saint Cloud, Florida wedding held at Cobblestone Events and Rentals. I have been asked numerous times “Mandy, what should we give as favors to our guests?” My answer is almost always the same, Something Edible!  Guests love to have something either they can enjoy while at your event or a little taste for on the way home.  Either way your guests will actually use the favor and you will not be wasting your money on something more than likely to be thrown away at a later date.

Tina and Jim decided to send their guests off with a mini box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts and their special blend of coffee beans.  The presentation at Cobblestone Events and Rentals was beautiful and was a great way to show the guests what to expect at the end of the celebration.

The trend of edible favors is not new to the wedding community but is becoming more and more popular over the years.  Where is first began with Jordan almonds and chocolate kisses in a organza bags, it has now moved to elaborately created Candy Bar/Buffets, S’mores Bars, Ice cream bars and of course the beloved doughnut.  Not to mention, your photographer loves them too!  😉

Woman Crush Wednesday | Wedding Day Fashion Inspiration | Orlando Wedding Photography

On your wedding day you are supposed to look your best, better than you ever have before.  Choosing the right dress and accessories, as well as the wedding party’s, can help accentuate your look.  A extremely dreamy gown or Bond-like suit will make you look fabulous as you exchange your vows.

This Bride chose a gown that was form fitting.  Small train with simple veil.  She added to her ensemble a pair of silver Michael Kors pumps, and made sure her outfit was complete with her “Something Blue” garter.

Her bridesmaids all wore different colored gowns with a lace overlay that complimented them all wonderfully.

Whatever you decide for your attire, make sure it is what you want, what you feel beautiful or handsome in and that you can ROCK for the rest of the day!

Florida Botanical Gardens | Sara Beth and Chris | Largo Engagement Photographer

I cannot wait to capture these two this October at the Ocala Jockey Club as they exchange vows, and ride in on a HORSE!  What?!  Sara Beth found us through Wedding Wire and somehow we immediately connected.  We discussed the plan for their big day and she booked Semm-Faber Photography shortly after speaking with me.  At the end of last year I had the opportunity to meet her and Chris face to face for their engagement session at the Florida Botanical Gardens in Largo, Florida. Gorgeous place by the way!

I really only have one, well maybe two words for this couple, Freaking Ah-Maz-ING!!!!  I love them and well I am pretty sure they love me.  We had a blast walking around laughing and joking all while painting their story.  This October is going to be great!  A horse (or more) a barn, fields of green, a gorgeous Bride and super funny Groom. I just might pee my pants.  Ok not really, geesh, calm down!

Krispy Kreme Wedding Cake | Wedding Cake Wednesday | Orlando Wedding Photographer

What better way to celebrate your love of Krispy Kreme doughnuts than to make your wedding cake out of them!  This out of town couple had a gorgeous destination wedding on the East Coast of Florida, Melbourne Beach.  The families rented a small block of vacation homes which had an adjoining courtyard.  We highlighted the backyard reception photos last week.

Both the Bride and Groom LOVE Krispy Kreme  doughnuts and where they are from the delectable doughnut company does not have a storefront.  They decided to buy quite a few dozen and make their cake out of it.  Complete with blush pink roses and babies breath. And man I will tell you it was delicious!

Remember, its YOUR day!  Make it special and All About You!
