Wedding + Cake

12/30/15


This blog has been quiet as of late, but it's because I've been gorging myself on food and drink, spending time with a house full of family and GETTING MARRIED!  After 10 years and 3 kids, Carson and I surprised our moms with a tiny Christmas Eve "Eve" wedding, and it was perfect.  Thank you all for the nice wishes you've posted on Instagram and Twitter!  

So now that I can finally TALK about it (my GOD that was a hard secret to keep), let's discuss how for the longest time I convinced myself I was going to make my own wedding cake.  I was all, OMG I'm totally going to do it and it will be a challenge, but also super fun, and I'll blog about it and YAY! Then the date crept closer and closer and oh, SO DID CHRISTMAS, and I became a ball of stress trying to finalize last minute wedding details while shopping for gifts.  I wisely decided, along with the advice from my new husband, that in fact making my own cake would not be fun but would be TERRIBLY HORRIBLE.  So I turned to a pastry shop in Long Island and requested a wintery three-tiered cake with three different fillings (white chocolate, fudge and cannoli).  The only major bummer was the cake topper I ordered never came, so here's my mom holding up an image of what it should have looked like...  


Perfect, right?  These photos were snapped after our photographer left, but all the black and white images that have been posted online were shot by the INCREDIBLE Pete Thompson.  What a great and immensely talented guy, I can't say enough good things about him.

So, that's where I've been, I will be back to blogging regularly after New Year's.  Until then, keep eating, drinking, and have a Happy and Healthy New Year!



Dress and jewelry were J Crew, hair was done at Dry Bar and makeup was done at Sephora :)

You guys are seriously the cutest couple ever. LOVE your wedding dress by the way, and good thinking on having someone else make your cake.

Congratulations!! It was a very wise choice to have someone else do your cake! Maybe for fun, you can make one for your first wedding anniversary!! That cake topper was awesome! Too bad the damn thing didn't come in time :)

My husband and I got married on July 22, 2014...took us 11 years and 2 kids later :)

Have a joyous life!

Such joy for you and your family! And what a gift to everyone to share the news and pictures - in this strangely modern interconnected world, every small bit of happiness is also infectious - we're so happy too for your happiness. Your message about the many different shapes and sizes of families was also a generous truth. Happy wedding and new year!

at first I read this sentence, "the longest time I convinced myself I was going to make my own wedding cake" as make my own wedding dress. And I thought what is she crazy and I never knew she sewed her own clothes. Then when I read further I had to reread that sentence and realized you said 'cake'. I still thought stressful not crazy. LOL. Congratulations Siri & Carson and family. Also, Happy New Year!!
