There’s a lot of awesomeness going on at Lauren + Dylan’s reception at the Amelia Island Plantation, so let’s try and pace ourselves, ‘mm-kay? If you can get passed the sea of bright blooms from Artistic Florist – a feat, I know – you may notice the incredibly realistic tree trunk cake from Edgewood Bakery. Yes, the couple did carve their name in the cake… naturally! Want more? Visit Brooke Images’ blog post here.
Describe your wedding flowers: A-M-A-Z-I-N-G. Random, colorful, unpredictable flowers everywhere! Every single detail was exactly what I wanted. It was like the florist read my mind. And all the 180 vases we collected were worth the effort!
Describe your wedding cake: Not traditional at all. We didn’t even want a cake until we saw the tree stump cake in the window at Edgewood Bakery. We got 3 tree stump cakes. One stump was “Dylan’s cake” and it was chocolate with red raspberry filling. The other was “Lauren’s cake” and it was red velvet with cream cheese filling. The last stump was a traditional white wedding pound cake. They were delicious and fit into the theme perfectly.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? The biggest challenge was finding time to plan the wedding. I was working full-time and in school full-time. Trying to plan a wedding on top of that was hard. Thank goodness Dylan and our families were a huge help!
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? Calling my grandma who was not able to make it to the wedding. It was a very special moment. I will never forget our conversation or that moment I was standing outside watching the sunset and talking to her. I also loved the ceremony. It was created by one of my dad’s best friends from childhood. It incorporated elements from several different cultures and religions. It was very special.
