Real Wedding Wednesday ~ A Romantic, Radiant and Delicious Southern Wedding

Brideys, if you are looking for a theme, but you aren’t sure what you want it to be, look no further! As I mentioned in the Fantasy Friday post from June 13th, Radiant Orchid is the Pantone Color of the year, and here is a real wedding which rocks this color, and HARD! Seriously, down to the sashes in the dresses the flower girls are wearing to the linen, it’s all purple all the time! And remember how I said that purple is the color of good judgment? Well, I said it… In that post I referenced from the 13th! Anyway, Ashley and Kirk have one of the BEST grooms’ cakes I have ever seen! No really. Fucking awesome! I mean… Personally, this cake encapsulates two of my favorite things in the whole wide world; donuts and cake, and ties them together in a fabulous charming way. Scroll down… You’ll see!

Know what I love? I didn’t receive any information about the bride + groom with this submission, but I can look at their wedding and get a glimpse of who they are without even knowing the details. Clearly, they have good judgment and taste because they chose radiant orchid, but more than that, I can tell you that Matt is a police officer who loves his donuts and coffee, Ashley is a fantastic mommy who is absolutely in love with their daughter, and that the two of them are totally passionate about each other and having fun together! Bridey, what will your wedding say about you? If you didn’t tell me your story, could I “get it” based on the photographs alone?  Think about it, and remember to make your wedding about what’s important… The bride + groom!!!Ashley, you look GORGE!! 
This first look is beautiful. I LOVE the way Matt is looking at Ashley.
C'mon... Let's go over here...
Um... Could ya' bust? The baby and the dress!!!! OMG!
Seriously, all I hear is the clock ticking when I look at these kiddos...
Now that's a proud papa!
Love the decor and the space! 
OH. MY. GOD. Are you dying right now? I can't...
Simply gorgeous!! LOVE the bubbles!!!
