“Our cake was a huge, three tiered cake with layers of flowers in between the tiers,” says Erin. “Evin of Buckhead Bakehouse did the cake for us. She was wonderful. It resembled my wife’s gown and was amazing. We made the flavor of the top tier lemon, in remembrance of my wife’s late father’s favorite cake.”
