Vintage Garden Wedding Cake

This is our sweetest, smallest wedding cake to date!vintage scroll wedding cake atlanta

Last Saturday, Pêche Petite created a cake for an intimate family wedding at Milton’s in Alpharetta. milton's alpharetta

The bride wanted an elegant wedding cake to enhance the down-home porch feel of the reception, located on the restaurant’s patio.milton's patio alpharetta wedding

We opted for a smooth cake instead of texture to veer away from a more shabby chic look. Paige piped swirling scrolls around the side of each tier and used silver dragées for embellishment. vintage scroll swirl wedding cake atlanta

Dragées are little sugar balls and add a touch of refinement to the design. I like how they pick up light and give off a little shine, not an excessive rhinestone bling-bling, but a restrained, demure sparkle for a more vintage look.swirl scroll wedding cake atlanta

To compliment the decor and flowers, we added one of her colors through ribbon on the bottom of each tier. A simple bead border is a classy finish.vintage wedding cake atlanta

The wedding cake ultimately had fresh flowers on it, but unfortunately the flowers weren’t ready at our delivery time. I did get a picture of the completed cake, but it’s from a cell phone so please excuse the quality.vintage wedding cake fresh flowers atlanta

Milton’s is a literal farm-to-table restaurant, as in: the farm is right next to the restaurant! So cool! I had fun exploring the venue as Paige set up the cake.miltons farm alpharetta wedding

The wedding ceremony was set up in the garden around a large stately tree.miltons garden weddingI’m particularly proud of this shot. Pretty good composition, eh?miltons garden wedding

I love the assorted chairs. They are so quaint!miltons garden weddingmiltons garden tomatoI like the idea of beginning marriage among all the fledgling plants. The wedding is just the start of their lifelong journey together. May their relationship continue to bloom and grow just like this beautiful garden!
