Natural Romantic Wedding Cake

Tucked away in the middle of Atlanta is the majestic Callanwolde Fine Arts Center. It reminds me of a old Bavarian mansion. Paige has set up many wedding cakes from her previous job there, but I had only seen pictures and heard excited words about the venue. I was very excited for a Pêche Petite wedding cake to be featured at Callanwolde. callanwolde wedding atlantaI love this cake. The huge blooms are at once dramatic and demanding your attention and yet so simple. They create this natural romantic feeling that is so perfectly effortless. You’ll see this again later as I stroll around the venue. callanwolde wedding cake Paige and I had the pleasure of working with the merry staff of Juli Vaughn Designs, the wedding’s florist. Each flower was carefully chosen, examined, debated and placed until a gorgeous cascade emerged and the cake was complete. callanwolde wedding cake aerial Billy balls are always a good counterpoint to full and fluffy blooms.  callanwolde wedding cakeI especially dig the green-centered ranunculus! So cool!callanwolde wedding cake flower cascadeThe florals really tied the whole wedding together. The incredibly talented Melissa Bloomfield of Pretty Swell Parties designed the wedding, and it came out gorgeous! The ceremony trellis brought to mind A Mid-Summer’s Night Dream because it was so romantic and almost mythical.  The natural beauty created this mood of fairy tale love.callanwolde ceremony trelisThe blooms were magical and huge!wedding florals

The reception took place in this bright, open room – reminiscent of a little outdoor European cafe.callanwolde wedding reception

Unique centerpieces were comprised of charming nostalgic items like this typewriter and vintage book. The flowers added balance as a fresh burst of life in the present.callanwolde wedding centerpieces
