Real Wedding - Lovely Mexico Wedding

Nicole & Mike
Puerto Morelos, Mexico

Nothing like getting away from a cold Colorado winter to do a stunning wedding in Mexico.
Nicole and Mike selected the fabulous Ocean Coral & Turquesa resort for their guests to join in their celebration.

Her colors looked fantastic, perfect for a destination wedding...peacock blue, orange and fuchsia.

The gazebo draped in organza looked beautiful against the ocean.
It never fails when you do a destination wedding that as soon as onlookers see the guests starting to arrive they gather to watch the ceremony. We had quite a crowd of additional well wishers....it all adds to the festivity. I think Nicole was a bit surprised to see so many additional "guests" when she walked around the corner.

The reception took place on the terrace overlooking the ocean. It was a bit cool the few days beforehand, but the weather warmed up for their day...just a touch of wind that blew the lanterns (a few escaped and rolled off around the resort).

Thanks Jason & Gina for capturing a beautiful couple and great wedding!

Wedding Cake Inspirations

It's my birthday today.....nothing says birthday like cake...and since my trainer won't let me have any cake (bummer!) here's some photos of my faves, enjoy.

The rhinestone added a bit of glitz and glamour to this cake.

A mountain feel...

Bright colors and waves for this tropical wedding feel.

Beautiful garden wedding cake....

This one was so amazing. The baker actually used leather working tools to get that texture, a great rustic wedding cake!

This cake matched the brides gown design, although the cake has hints of green in it.

Yea...go BUFFS! Had to pop this one in! (University of Colorado Buffs Grooms Cake)

Elegant wedding cake...

Simple details on your wedding cake make it really amazing...here it's all individually folded rose petals adding texture to the clean lined wedding cake.

The bride only wanted a simple, small cake to cut...we had more in the back.

So if I could be eating cake today, it would be Pistachio cake with Victorian Buttercream from The Makery or my mom's lemon cake......hmmm.....what the trainer doesn't know won't hurt him right ;)
