    Love the light pink with black centers, gorgeous contrast!

  2. Julie says:

    What is the season for anemones? Are they just spring-early summer?

  3. I love the black and whites! So classic and sophisticated. They would be fun with a pop of orange and red!

  4. The Fairy says:

    Love the flowers around the lamp base.

  5. The black and white is so classic. And the cakes – WOW! Love these!

  6. Diana Sanchez says:

    What font is used for “Creative Cakes” and “Modern Romance”??

    I love those black cake stands!

  7. Jenn @ HWTM says:

    Diana –
    That font is called Albemarle Swash. You can find it for free online – just do a google search for it :)

  8. Sara says:

    Gorgeous! I kind of wish I had known about these flowers when I got married in September!

  9. Angela says:

    I love anemones but would never recommend them for an outside wedding on a hot day. I’d also never recommend them for a midwest or east coast bride as their shelf life diminishes in the shipping process.

    Thanks, Jenn!!

  11. anemones are just gorgeous and make beautiful bouquets!

    black and white is always wonderful, but sometimes people don’t do it justice. not the case here! I especially love the cakes.

  13. Michelle says:

    I am happy you posted what the font was for “modern romance” – I’ve been wondering on other posts because it is so beautiful! But how do you get the border around “romance”?

    • jenn s. says:

      Michelle –
      I created the border myself in Photoshop.

      If you have Photoshop: go to Select > Load Selection, then Select > Expand (i usually expand by 3). Then create a new layer, Fill the selection with the border color you want, and Deselect. Move this new layer underneath the type layer, and you’re done. It sounds like a lot of steps but usually goes pretty quickly :)

    These are very unique. The wedding cakes are quite special.
