Where do we even start!?! If you haven't contacted Maria to officiate your wedding day please do yourself a favor and reach out to her NOW! You will not regret it! From the first FaceTime chat with Maria to the day of our ceremony (16 days later) Maria gave us the tools to help her create the most beautiful and personal elopement ceremony. Her warmth, joy, excitement, love for her job and love for standing with couples as they state their vows to one another is infectious. Her attitude made us more excited to plan our perfect day! Maria is so laid back and SO much fun to be around! She didn't blink an eye when we informed her that we wanted her to create a personalized ceremony for us in just 16 short days. No, she was up and excited for the challenge! It was exactly what we were hoping our officiant would be and more! After the first time we talked, we felt she really got us and our relationship and because of this we decided for her to surprise us by not sending our marriage address to us to review before our elopement. This ended up being our favorite part of the ceremony! Maria, thank you again for everything. We cannot stop reliving the entire day (especially the ceremony)! Thank you for being such a HUGE part of It, we couldn't imagine becoming husband and wife without you and your support. The ceremony was more amazing and perfect than we could ever imagine!

single layer wedding cakes

my new favorite trend in weddings right now is single layer also known as one tier wedding cakes. i love the simplicity of them. they're festive but not overly fancy. for some couples a wedding cake like this would represent them perfectly. i started a new pinterest board just for single layer wedding cakes and here are a few images from that board. 

what do you think about this trend? would a one tier wedding cake represent you and your sweetie? or is it "the higher the better" when it comes to your wedding cake approach?
