Wedding Cake Link-up!

Today I am linking up with Britt from The Magnolia Pair to share our wedding cakes with you!

Jonathan & I had three cakes at our wedding:
1. My wedding cake.
2. Jonathan's groom's cake.
3. My grandparent's 50th anniversary cake.

Yes, Jonathan & I were married on my grandparent's 50th anniversary! It made my wedding day even more special to know on that exact same day 50 years ago, my sweet grandparents were saying "I do" as well. :)  So, we wanted to have a cake for them to celebrate such a wonderful occasion! 50 years of martial bliss!

So, let me introduce you to our cakes! 

Cake #1: My wedding cake.

My cake was a four tiered white cake with vanilla butter cream.
 It was simply decorated with some beautiful cymbidium orchids. It was lovely and delicious!

Here are few shots of us cutting into that yummy cake!




Cake #2: Jonathan's groom's cake.
Jonathan's groom cake was all about his favorite football team: The Arkansas Razorbacks!

My husband is a chocolate LOVER, so he wanted a chocolate cake with chocolate buttercream! YUM!
It was also decorated with some chocolate covered strawberries that looked like little footballs :)
I must say, his cake may have been my favorite. I mean, how cute are those little hogs on top?! :)

Cake #3: My grandparent's 50th anniversary cake.
It was a strawberry cake with vanilla buttercream! So tasty!

 We decorated their cake table with sentimental pictures, including pictures from their wedding day!

So happy we get to share our anniversary with these two love birds!

It was definitely the SWEETEST day of my life :)

In LOVE with these pictures. Y'all are the picture-perfect couple! How incredible is it that you had your wedding on your grandparent's 50th anniversary?! So, so special. Crazy, too, because we had ours on my grandparent's 56th anniversary. My grandpa passed away of cancer 3 months prior to our wedding, making it very bittersweet. What a neat bond we share :)!
