Now that wedding season has wrapped up, I’m happy to have a little time to share some of the amazing details featured at this year’s weddings. I look forward to showing off some very original reception decor ideas, flowers, color schemes and more.

One of my favorite details to photograph (and I admit, I really enjoy shooting details!) is the wedding cake. Even though I’m not actually a huge fan of eating cake, I’m fascinated by the artistry and creativity of cake decorating. If I had a couple more lifetimes to live, you can be sure I’d fine some time to learn how to create cake masterpieces. Or… be a florist. You know, styling hair is pretty amazing too…

Anyhow… back to cakes (and we’ll be seeing some cookie tables here in the mix, too.) Jessica and Jason’s wedding at Armstrong Farms featured an outdoorsy tree theme. Each layer of their cake was surrounded by a ring of straw and colorful wildflowers. So pretty!

A birds’ nest sat on top. I loved photographing the cake with the glowing lights of Armstrong Farms’ Fieldstone Barn.

Jessica and Jason’s cake was created by Paddy Cake.
