The ties that the guys wore were requested by the groom during the planning. One of many personal touches on their wedding day!

The cake by Dear Diva Desserts was so good, that Abby insisted I try a bite while they were in the middle of their formal cutting! I love Abby for many reasons, but that is definitely one of them! Sweetest bride ever.
