Seattle New Year's Eve Wedding

Fun couple alert. These two planned their wedding for an already festive night, New Years Eve. In fact, they wanted it to be just as much NYE bash as wedding. So they swapped the wedding party, flowers, and mountains of DIY projects for a magical night of dancing under the disco ball in the heart of Seattle with their crew of 70. Yesss. Thanks to Oak & Cypress Weddings + One Love Photo for the deets!

We especially loved those flattered each ‘maid’s individual style too. Take a peek…

100 Layer Cake Best-of 2015: wedding gowns

We’ve already covered the best wedding cakes + bridal bouquets of 2015 thus far. It only makes sense to unveil our favorite wedding gowns, right? The neatest thing about wedding dress trends this year was that there wasn’t any *one* thing brides gravitated to. Floral details, lace appliqué, sheath overlay, bohemian silhouettes, and stripes even… All fair game, and all big stunners.

nautical wedding cake

Did you get a chance to peek at our first 100 Layer Cake best-of post for 2015? (You’ll probably want to log into Pinterest before perusing our top bouquets of 2015.) When it came to wedding cakes this year, it was so tough to choose that we ended up adding in a little gallery at the end with a few more faves. So many creative cakes came through our inboxes, many of which were classically three-tiered, but trust us, far from traditional. This chic nautical cake is just the beginning…
