All Things Wedding: Cakes at Pine River Ranch

I am so lucky to have the privelege to take part in so many beautiful weddings, even though I am not always there on the big day, seeing the wedding pictures afterwards is so much fun. With every wedding I see I am continually amazed at the beautiful details of each brides and grooms big day. I love to see the different styles and approaches that each bride and groom take for their wedding day. Some wedding couples use the natural beauty of Pine River Ranch and enhance it with beautiful flowers and natural decorations, while some are inspired by the rustic beauty of the restored dairy barn and include home made jams, rustic lanterns and country touches in their decor. Each wedding and every detail is so unique and meaningful in it's own way to the wedding couple that it will forever be special to them. One of the main flowers in my wedding bouquet and our centerpieces were purple lupines and to this day whenever I see them it brings me back to our wedding day and puts a smile on my face.
As a tribute to the couples who have given us the privilege of being part of their wedding day I wanted to share with you some of the details that made their weddings so special.
I decided to start a new blog series throughout the summer dedicated to the details that complete the wedding day called:

All Things Weddings

So far, I have compiled pictures from weddings to include cakes, wedding dresses, rings, table centerpieces and more (kept secret to build anticipation!) and I will share these themes with you throughout the summer!
To kick start our new series All Things Weddings, we are going to start with the yummy details. Literally.

All Things Weddings, Part One: Cakes

I hope you have eaten because if not, you are going to get very hungry seeing all these amazing wedding cakes! We have had every kind of cake at Pine River Ranch from wedding cakes baked by mother-in-laws, to professionally baked cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes and pies!
I loved seeing this unique and fun bride and grooms cake! That chocolate cake looked absolutely to die for and the fun and creative grooms cake was perfect! Becky's Cakes in East Wenatchee did a great job! Robby and Alyssa's Hot Pink and Black Wedding was a beautiful event and they have been joining us for their anniversary since then!
Kellie and Josh's beautiful October Fall Wedding was highlighted by natural elements like the log rounds and pine cones that were adorned throughout the venue, including their yummy strawberry cheesecake dessert.

Dan and Carrie had an amazing Winter Wedding decorated with snowflakes and natural greenery. Their cake was made by Becky's Cakes in East Wenatchee

Matt and Ashley's Fall Wedding was a family affair. Their brown, green and cream wedding colors were perfect for the laid back couple to enhance the natural beauty of Pine River Ranch. Along with many other couples they didn't necessarily have a "traditional" wedding cake, but instead had a selection of cakes, chocolate truffles and pies made by many of their friends and family members which was a huge hit with the guests!
You may remember this cake from Chris and Ashlee's indoor wedding I posted last week. This cake was made by Busy Bea's Cakes, a favorite of many brides and grooms who get married at Pine River Ranch. This amazing cake from Busy Bea's Cakes fit perfectly into the theme of this vintage inspired wedding we had here 3 years ago.

Sage and Alex were so pleased with the way their wedding cake turned out. When I talked to Sage after the wedding she wanted to give a big thank you to her Mother-in-Law, a retired pastry chef for making their wedding cake. Sage said “It was the BEST cake ever! Carrot cake with butter cream frosting. I think everyone had 2 slices.”
I hope you enjoyed my new blog series All Things Weddings and got some inspiration for your big day! The wonderful thing about weddings today is that there is so much choice out there. Whether you want to stick to a traditional wedding or throw the guidelines out the window there are still so many personal touches that make each wedding day special and unique.
If you would like to see a specific topic for a future All Things Weddings post, just leave a comment and let me know! Thanks to all our past brides and grooms for letting me share your wedding day!
