Ah, the reception—the wining and dining of our nearest and dearest twelve thousand friends. Senseless. We quickly found ourselves in this unruly predicament, and saw no way to maintain a $3000 budget while serving food. Our solution: “Let them eat cake.” (Poor historical reference. Probably already overused in the wedding world. My bad.)
We have opted for one three-tier cake that will feed about 75 and an additional six novelty cakes that feed 10-12 each. (Note: 150ish guests). Also, lemon verbena water, a simple sparkling punch, and Brandon has asked for a snickerdoodle tower (comparable to a cupcake stand, but this man just doesn’t like cake)!
As this is a 2:00 wedding, we can get away with it, and are shooting low on cake orders so we don’t have tons of cake to haul all over the world. Without further ado, the photos that make this post worth reading:
