    A Yacht wedding? How fabulous! Looks like it was a lot of fun (how can you not have fun on a yacht!?) Santa Barbara has some beautiful coastlines so I bet that was on spectacular wedding. I’ve been to countless weddings in Santa Barbara but never on a boat, that must of been awesome. Thankfully I get to go back to town in July and go wine tasting and enjoy the sights since I never get to when Im traveling there for friend’s weddings. I’m staying at this great little place-the South Coast Inn ( Close to the beaches and a great bike path that will take you right down town! Great on a sunny day in the spring or summer time.

  10. […] Forget about the five layer cakes. Smaller sweets are making a big statement on today’s dessert tables. We have talk about how cupcakes and cake-pops have been taking over the wedding dessert scene. But, the my newest obsession is their close cousin, the mini-cake. (mini-cake by Reachelle’s Beautyful Bespoke Cakes) These little confections are just as easy to eat as cupcakes but so much more sophisticated and elegant. Wether they’re used as wedding favors, at a dessert table or as an alternative or complement of the regular wedding cake, mini-wedding cupcakes are simply divine. Here are a few fab ideas of mini-cake designs and some creative ways to incorporate this petite sweet into your wedding. Enjoy!
