Raspberry, Apple Green and Damask {wedding cake}

Kristina and Justin's were married in April and their cake had it all! It was 5 tiers tall, but was made up of 10 separate cakes. It had a stenciled damask pattern in classic black and white mixed with quilted textured tiers. It had bursts of color with the use of an apple green covered tier and borders and raspberry pearl accents and bow embellishments. And to top it off a very elegant black acrylic initial topper.

 I love this close up of the cake. It shows the damask pattern was also done on the cake board, the raspberry colored pearls accenting the quilting and the clean look of the stenciled damask.

 Another detail of the wedding I loved and just had to share was Kristina's bouquet. Not only did she use some of my favorite flowers such as dahlias, kermit mums, and spider mums; the bouquet was embellished with a beautiful crown brooch.

 I'm a big fan of kissing balls and these created by Visual Impact Design are fabulous with the addition of the hanging jewels. The kissing balls were also used as centerpieces on the tables and other places through the reception.

the seating chart made it easy for guests to find the name and table. A fun touch was to replace table numbers with movie titles, such as Top Gun and Sixteen Candles.
