Pink Wedding: Photobooth

Lindsay and Graeme set up an elaborate photobooth with a champagne sequinned backdrop, colorful decorations, a gold picture frame, and wedding-themed props. A photo op area at a wedding is a new idea to me, and it turned out to be a hit. Somewhat to my surprise, Brendan and I were in constant demand for people to have photos taken with us — I felt like a celebrity! Everyone had a lot of fun with it.

Pink Wedding: Cake

I didn’t want a huge, elaborate wedding cake — just something pretty, and enough to feed all our guests. Myrna had led me on a cake tasting tour, and we settled on Sugar Butter Flour to make the wedding cake, plus another cake (a hummingbird cake, as I recall) to make sure there was enough for everyone, and a flourless cake for the gluten-free.

The main cake was frosted in a custom pink to match my dress, with gold paisely decorations in keeping with the semi-Indian theme of the wedding. All the cakes were delicious, of course, and there wasn’t a crumb left over.
