Alright, so I know you all luvvvvvv the color inspiration posts, and I really haven’t done one in awhile.

Orange & Hot Pink

Purple & Charcoal

So The Knot has some super fab wedding cakes up to gawk at… check out some of my favorites below!

Clean lines, preppy monogram and lemons! Love. And this particular monogram is PERFECT for my bestie and her hubs-to-be. Love.

I love this one too. So different, yet beautiful, southern and somehow traditional. Which I sort of love.

There’s something really beautiful, still, about all white.

And something so simple, elegant and fresh.

Have I mentioned that I LOVE wedding photography, and really good wedding photography blows my mind. In some previous life I think this was my destiny, so I make it my business to meet and greet as many wonderful photographers as I can. These days wedding photographers have so much more to offer than your standard church photos, and the latest trend is seriously hot.

Boudoir photos are the hottest trend in wedding photography. Think sexpot, pin-up, Moulin Rouge… whatever you envision, wedding photographers are bringing it to life.

Personally, I think this is an amazing addition to your world ladies! I think every girl should bring that sexy back for herself, and her hubby. Whether it’s a single shot as a pre-wedding gift for your soon-to-be husband or an artistic book of sexy photos for  your first anniversary, this is a gift he definitely won’t forget.

Randi Voss, one of my favorite and totally talented wedding photographers started offering up Boudoir Sessions to bride’s and works with each individual client to create exactly what she’s looking for in the session.

“Beforehand, I take the time to send the model some clothing suggestions or talk with her on the phone about what she wants and expects from the session.” Randi said. She also recommends hair & makeup for the session to make sure the “I feel pretty” effect really comes through in the photos. Who doesn’t want to get all dolled up for a little sexpot session? I mean. Let’s be honest. Even if you aren’t the kind of girl who flirts with an above the knee hemline from time to time, these photos are for you and your hubby’s eyes only, not for your downstairs powder room, so there’s nothing to blush at.

When you’re looking for a photographer to “step out of the box with,” make sure that you feel comfortable with them. If you don’t, it’s definitely going to show.

“I ask her what she wants me to focus on (and what she wants me to hide.)  The sessions are always a little rocky for the first 10 minutes.  You never know how comfortable someone is going to be in this situation.  After the first few shots, I’ll show my model an image on my camera’s LCD screen so she can make any adjustments she wants.  Then, smooth sailing.” said Randi.

The other great thing about Randi. She opts out of Photoshop on these shots. She believes that true beauty doesn’t come with point and click photoshop, so why should these images. I love this actually. While I think some people would be all for “hiding” whatever your least favorite parts about you are, the truth is, your guy is marrying you for all of you, not the photo shopped version of you. So relax, strip down to your skivvies and ENJOY it and it will make for some super hot, and super fun photos.

Here are a few sample shots from Randi. Special thanks to these BEAUTIFUL brides-to-be for sharing their sessions with us! For more information on what to expect from a Boudoir session check out The Knot’s take on this sexy new trend.

I always loved this next combo together. It’s romance with an edge. Who doesn’t like that? Be careful with these colors though. I feel like it’s better to stay with deeper shades of purple or lime green to keep it looking fresh and new and less like an Easter basket… unless that’s what you’re going for…
Just a thought.

The wedding cake is so often a detail that is pined over by the bride and groom, but I’ll be honest here… A lot of people don’t even eat the cake.

I know! It’s so much money, there are so many choices… blah blah.

But some people ( your college roommates) are  too busy throwing elbows at the bar and gettin’ down on the dance floor to worry about red velvet vs. carrot.

BUT I know… some people eat the cake.

Personally, I just think it looks pretty…

So I wanted to give you some of my favorites as inspiration for whimsy and excitement in the dessert department.

So with that said… let there be cake.
