    Amanda: I found a similar cake on and just sent the photo to the cakemaker. They bought chocolate cigarettes for the design ๐Ÿ™‚

    Meghan: I think I was laughing during the first dance bc Jorge told me he was certain he’d cry when he danced with his mom. He did.

    Foxy: I’ve already looked through them so many times! and I haven’t even gotten the professional ones yet

    K: Gracias ๐Ÿ™‚

    Catie: Wish you could have been there! My mommy made my dress ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ashlie: Thanks, Twitter buddy!

    Harley: Haha yeah the cake seems to be everyone’s favorite part. it was pretty awesome!

    Ang: Yeah, getting a little frustrated with WordPress, but normally it’s very good to me. Hopefully I’ll post more soon.

    Nikki: The venue was awesome, wasn’t it? The cake itself was vanilla, but it had a layer of chocolate filling and a layer of nut filling.
