One of the best perks of being a Wedding DJ is the frequent close encounters with the slice of the food pyramid known as “Wedding Cake”. This article is totally devoted to my 2012 exposure to the delicious and artistic treats.
I try to photograph the wedding cake at each and every wedding reception, primarily because the wedding cake is considered one of the centerpieces of the event, worthy of honor. I know how much the cake means to the bride, and how much effort and expense goes into the selection, procurement and display of the perfect cake. Each wedding cake is an original; intended to mirror some aspect of the wedding itself, whether it be the décor of the event, attire of the wedding party or personality of the bride. Grooms, likewise, sometimes have a cake unto themselves, which is solely intended to reflect the occupation or preoccupation of the groom.
If you have any questions or want the name of the creator of any of the below cakes please feel free to leave a comment at the end and I will be happy to furnish the details.
So here, displayed in all their glory, are some of the wedding cakes of our 2012 wedding season. Enjoy!
