Aaaahhhhh – these two. I had quite a time figuring out where to begin the story of Anna & Wilson’s photos here on the blog. Heidi and her fellow photographer @ Our Labor of Love did a wonderful job of chronicling the day. As hectic as weddings can be, and as often as they can become quite the rat race to “get to the altar on time”, it appears Anna & Wilson’s day was beautifully breezy. There’s lots of understated, and organic sophistication going on here. Let’s take a look.
Anna and Wilson have been sweethearts since their earlier school years, and it shows. When I first met them, the whole kindred spirit quality was definitely native to their relationship. That’s always a beautiful sight. Anna knew EXACTLY what she wanted, and I’m happy to say she was quite the muse. Two cakes were crafted especially for her and Wilson. One of these cakes happens to be quite possibly the best tasting dessert I’ve ever made, but we’ll get to that later.
The wedding and reception were at Serenbe Farms.
Just looking at these photos makes me want to grab some lemonade, and a hammock! So relaxing.
Lovely, indeed. While this loveliness awaited everyone, here’s what was going on elsewhere.
Anna’s getting ready.
Oh honey! This dress. I don’t know if there’s a photo that will every truly do it justice. It was breathtaking.

Do I see an heirloom before my eyes? Cool Stuff. So James Bond. (wink)
Looks like she’s ready to go (o: Beautiful!
Lookin’ good, Wilson!
This is so cool. #lineage
I truly wish I could have been there to hear what he told her. I’m sure it was super duper sweet!
Sealed with a kiss!
Time to par-tay! And it’s written all over her face. But let’s take it all in first.
And here they are!
Magical first dance…
And now for some rather fancy bites.
Let us not forget the magical wall of beer spouts! very cool touch – literally & figuratively.
My cake makes people kiss.
So Anna wanted to spoil her guests with cake, cake, and more cake. There was so much cake, that there’s one missing from this photo. Flavors ranged from whiskey and peach to lavender with honey, and dark chocolate with caramel. It was an amazing spread, and receiving sweet notes from guests made my millennium! I’m so happy everyone enjoyed the cake. Anna really made sure that flavors spanned all types of palates.
In case you’re wondering, this lemon lavender cake looks like this on the inside…
Anna specifically asked for an “herbal cake”. Something not too sweet, but definitely involving lavender. So, this is what I came up with. It’s a lemon chiffon cake with lavender cream, lemon curd, a fresh blueberry compote, and a very light lemon cream icing. I was so happy she liked the cake as much as she did.
…and each slice was served like this…
There were two types of caramel cakes. The vanilla version had cognac, and the chocolate version had almonds with a hint of amaretto.

Anna and her family fell in love with this cake. When her mom told me that it is the best cake she “EVER ate”, I wanted to do a backflip! Frankly, there is no better compliment you can receive in this business.
The wedding marked the beginning of summer, and a rather humid one at that. Kudos to everyone that was in the food prep area that day! It was no place for punks. With limited resources, making do was our mantra, and I must say we held things together rather boss-ly (o;.
