the wedding!

[White wedding cake with cherry filling and swiss buttercream frosting, german chocolate cake, flourless chocolate cake, butter cake with lemon, cheesecake, and carrot cake with cream cheese frosting]

Whew. I'm beat.

[Apparently people enjoyed the cakes.]

And Lorenna ---oh my goodness did she ever look gorgeous!

Did I tell you that she had to find a new dress less than a week before the wedding? She was having a dress-maker make a dress through Etsy, who decided her fabric choice of silk organza wasn't acceptable...and made it out of polyester chiffon. Ew. So, off goes the bride, and finds a perfect dress --- a store sample--- that had just arrived in the shop. And it fit like a glove and only needed to be hemmed. It was fate.

...and keep in mind this is all between making her own veil, gift bags introducing both of their large families to Boston, cake-baking with me late into the night, making her own cake topper, planning the music playlist, dealing with all sorts of last minute details...she's just insane. In the best of ways, of course. The kind of ways that make you oh-so-glad to know her and to be her friend.

It was a chill, wonderful, perfect wedding. And I am so happy for her.
