The wedding was stunning and genuine and full of love. My mom and I made all the food (for 120 guests!) and we worked our butts off, but it was so worth it and came out so well. We had many willing helpers - my sister and her new husband have a wonderful, sweet group of friends - and even with some last minute snafus it all came together beautifully.

|The Aiken Wedding "Cake"!|
A cake the bride could actually eat! The base is 4 watermelons shaped very carefully. (Two on the bottom layer and one on each other layer.) It is covered in blueberries, pineapple rings, and strawberries and topped with a pile of raspberries. We surrounded it with a bed of grapes. I had a picture in my head as soon as they announced their engagement and it happily came out just as I envisioned. It was a labor of love and my sister is so worth it!
All in all, it was a wonderful day and I know their marriage will be even better. Congratulations you two!
