Even the customized cake stands have a fun kitchy flair. Check out the Chuck and Di cameo below:
Field flowers in jam jars looked like they have been handpicked the same day. They rested on the mismatched antique lace tablecloths- which is exactly what covered the tables at my wedding party, so I had an immediate soft spot for this place.
