a rainy wedding day

Recently, I have been doing a very poor job of keeping up my blog. Summer has been busy. We have gone on vacation, and I have been training for my half marathon in October. I have some projects that I need to post, and I will do that very soon. I just delivered this wedding cake, and I am so happy with the way that it turned out that I just had to come home and blog about it. I have really enjoyed working with this bride and her family. The wedding was at the bride's parents home. It was an amazing set up. Except for one thing, the bottom fell out of the sky as we were driving over to set up. If it is true that rain on your wedding day is good luck, this couple better buy a lotto ticket! It was a challenge setting up, but I think that the results were worth it! The grooms cake was also fun to do. Both the bride and groom are recent UGA alums, and so they wanted that reflected in the grooms cake. So, I made a football field, and they had a graphic artist create a jumbo tron with their picture in it.
