17. most recent picture of you and your significant other and what you love most about them :) and any other thoughts.

Today is all about my cake and food. Honestly, this is probably the most boring part of my wedding. We've only become foodies within the last year or so, so we didn't really care what we served for our wedding. Since we had so many people invited and most weddings in Utah are pretty informal we decided not to serve dinner, and just do a dessert instead.  And what's one of my favorite desserts? CHEESECAKE! This is the only picture I have of our cheesecake bar that we did. We had a bunch of different toppings set out so you could decorate as you please.
And on to my cake. See, I told you this would be the not as exciting as the other posts. If I could re-do my wedding, this is the first thing I would change. I had a friend of a friend do my cake. I had seen some of his work, and it was awesome, but apparently this awesomeness did not transfer over to my cake. He decorated it awesome, it was exactly what I wanted, was a little bit lumpy. But what matters the most about cake? That it tastes good! I don't remember if it tasted good. It was a white cake with raspberry filling. Hal and I only got the one bite, when we cut our cake. No one thought to save our cake or our cheesecake leftovers for us. I hope the cheesecake and the cake was delicious, I guess someone who was there will have to let me know!

No we didn't shove it in each other's faces. It was actually something that we had never talked about. But I'm glad we didn't When you've spent that much money and time on your dress, hair, and makeup, why would you want to ruin it with cake?

Polka dots on the cake?! Awesome! I hope you find out if it was any good. :) I think I would not remember either...way too nervous and excited on that day. ;)

I'm sorry it came out lump - I'm sure nobody knew though :) And I agree with the cake in the face, I wouldn't want that hehe!

I agree on the no-smashing policy. My mom actually threatened us both before the reception that we'd better not do that...she threatened Matt a lot while we were engaged, lol :)

How exciting that you're moving out of the country. I'm sure it's stressful but you will be so happy you did it! How funny that you know Kelsey. I just met her this weekend!

um, your cake is awesome. polka dots? why didnt i think of that.
but that lumpy cake thing you were talking about..? i had the SAME problem. my aunt makes BEAUTIFUL wedding cakes, so i asked her to do mine, and it apparently didnt get the beautiful memo.
and i dont remember if it was good either.
but i'm not worried :) it was all beautiful anyway.
