Loving this CrossFit Groom's Cake

CrossFit Grooms Cake
CrossFit Grooms Cake

This is one serious cake and there's not a CrossFit detail missing - check out the clock on the left side!

I love groom's cakes because they're always creative; not your average wedding cake! I had a snicker's cake (his favorite candy) made for Aaron that turned out awesome and tasted delicious. We served it at our rehearsal dinner.

Bridal Shower Theme "Bells + Rings" | Sweet Shop Natalie It's no secret I love being the blog where CrossFit, couples, and weddings collide! A place that brings together unique wedding details for unique brides, just like these "bells and rings," bridal shower cookies. I mean, too cute, right?

The wedding detail I'm loving column will be a regular feature on Wednesdays in 2015! I have so many photos of cool ideas like this one that I can't wait to share.

Loving: Bridesmaid Knee Socks & Wedding Day 5k

These bridesmaid knee socks (similar) were gifted to each of the bride's besties and they all wore them the morning of the wedding for a bridal party 5k! When I look back, I wish I would have taken some time for a little active stress release on the morning of our wedding -- what better way than to do something that involves the entire bridal party and gets the endorphins flowing?

Loving: Better Off Wed Cake Toppers

These cake toppers made by Better Off Wed have been around for awhile, but I'm just discovering them! I love the idea of a bold statement adorning a gorgeous wedding cake. My absolute fave is "best day ever." Our day remains just that in our minds. The other options are just as charming and sweet ("happily ever after" is a favorite too), and you can even customize with your names! Talk about a keepsake! The topper could be pulled out on anniversaries in the years to come, and used to relive a little bit of that special moment! for like ever

Loving: Bridesmaids First Look

Good morning! Today I'm starting a new little series called Loving, to share some of my favorite wedding industry trends and ideas. For this first installment, I wanted to share something I first saw on Meredith Perdue's blog - a first look with your bridesmaids! I love this idea immediately, and wanted to give Meredith a huge high-five for capturing such an emotion-filled moment! Since then, I've seen similar photos popping up all over the web.
