The BEST Day. Le Fin.

I know what y'all are all probably thinking... "Finally, these wedding posts are over!" I have to have somewhere to remember the blur  that has become our wedding day. Y'all, people really weren't kidding when they said that it flies by. I still feel bad that we didn't get to talk to every one who came or get more family pictures. Here are some pictures from our reception-



Our beautiful, fabulous, amazing, talented friend Sarah Balke made our wedding cake for us. She is a good friend of ours from high school, and y'all, she did not disappoint!! She lives and works in NYC now and flew down here to do our wedding cake. Honored would be an understatement.

Apparently my "concentration face" is me holding my mouth open with my tongue sticking. Hence, there are no pictures of our faces actually cutting the cake. I need to start working on a new "concentration face" ....

1- How amazingly beautiful is that cake?! 2- I am about to brag on how amazingly delicious that thing was. I hate to admit this, but I am not a fan of wedding cake. They always end up being pound cake with super sweet icing. I love sweets but sometimes they are just too much. Well, I wanted to do something different. One of mine and Pat's favorite desserts is Key Lime Pie. Literally all we told Sarah was that we wanted a cake that was Key Lime Pie flavored. She knocked it out of the park! Our cake was a yellow cake with a key lime curd and a graham cracker streusel. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Is it our 1 year anniversary yet? We still get asked all the time who made our wedding cake, and we were told 1000 times over that it was the best wedding cake that people had ever eaten. Woah. Way to absolutely kill it, Sarah! We couldn't have dreamed of a better cake if we tried!


My little southern heart was all a flutter with our new monogram everywhere :)
