Dark, ominous clouds rolled across the sky as large drops of rain began to fall. Rain wasn't planned as part of Livja and Nate’s barnyard wedding in Henderson, MN - flooding was happening, roads washing away and the humidity levels rising. However nestled on the side of a hill of a farm was a little cabin that hid the happy bridal party away from weather while books were read, jokes shared, games played and the tiny button detail on the back of Livja’s dress paid attention to. The delicate gold necklace with their wedding date stamped on it (a gift from Nate) was removed as pearls finished off the bride's look.

The most important thing for Jennifer and Benjamin was to have a great time, in a great place, with their favorite people. Their great place was Isla Mujeres, Mexico. Their venue location had a natural backdrop from the private beach on the island. They wanted to keep the little details of their wedding simple, while letting the island dictate the decor. The couple chose vibrant warm colored floral arrangements with roses, peonies, and other in-season flowers.

V.I.B. Katie Cohen's Perspective: Dessert Alternatives!!

The indication to yourself and your guests that you had a fabulous wedding was how every last detail appeared perfectly throughout and nothing had been overlooked. The ceremony was heartfelt, the cocktail hour was entertaining and every morsel of food was mouthwatering. Then that moment came: dessert. Did you decide to go with tradition and have the 3-tiered cake? Or did go for something more, something different? Everyone including myself loves a good piece of cake every now and again. My fiancés favorite is red velvet! There are so many fabulous options to choose from for dessert these days, you can let your dreams run wild!
