This is the post you’ve all been anxiously waiting for! Now that Jenna and Mike’s gorgeous wedding was featured by Martha Stewart, we are able to share the beautiful images by Brittany Mahood with you. Take a look below at some of our favourite photos from the wedding and some insight into all of the sweet treats featured throughout the beautiful day.
Jenna’s bouquet, made by Heather Page at Academy Florist, featured both real and sugar flowers! Can you tell which flowers are sugar and which ones are real? You’ll notice that sugar flowers made an appearance in a lot of the wedding photos as a nod to Jenna’s favourite medium: sugar!
Ashley designed custom 6-macaron gift boxes as the wedding favours for guests of Jenna and Mike’s wedding. Popular macaron flavours in a palette matching the wedding meant every guest left with a treat they would be able to enjoy over the next few days (or all in one day!).
The dessert table at their wedding featured mini cookie sandwiches, chocolate covered gems, even more macarons and cream puffs! Jenna and Mike are huge Harry Potter fans so, of course, there were Butterbeer flavoured macarons and cream puffs for guests to enjoy. Fun fact–Jenna is a Slytherin and Mike is a Hufflepuff (although he’ll tell you he’s a Gryffindor).
Jenna originally thought she wouldn’t design her own wedding cake, she had wanted to have a cake made up of wheels of cheese instead! While that may have been delicious, we knew Jenna couldn’t resist creating her own cake. She created her cake out of styrofoam so she could work on it well in advance of the wedding (and avoid the all-nighters that usually have to happen with a cake as large and detailed as this!) and now the cake will be preserved in an acrylic box and displayed in her home as a keepsake from their wedding day.
The most significant part of the cake to Jenna are the touches of sugar blueberries that delicately adorn the cake. They represent her granny and baba and pay homage to the times they would spend blueberry picking. Even though they couldn’t be with her that day, each blueberry was a reminder of how special their relationship was.
