Our Wedding Cake {Linkup}

Today I am linking up with the wonderful Britt over at The Magnolai Pair, to talk about our wedding cake!
I love all things wedding and I love even more talking about our wedding day! We went with a modern typography theme, being the graphic design major that I am. If you can't already tell. I am OBSESSED with all things typography and letters in general. That being said I knew right away I wanted to do a typography inspired cake! Our cake was absolutely delicious, I could go for some right now! 

The first layer was vanilla cake with raspberry jam filling and raspberry mousse with butter cream frosting, and the second layer was chocolate cake with a chocolate ganache filling and chocolate mousse with butter cream frosting. Jordan and I love vanilla but knew that lots of guests love chocolate as well, and we wanted to make sure everyone got a slice of the amazingness :) Here are some pics of our cake, which I was absolutely in love with. I had our baker spell out "love" in purple which was one of our wedding colors, as well as putting our initials with a heart on top. I knew I wanted the white on white look, since it was modern and clean, two of my favorite things :)

I can't wait to see everyone else's wedding cakes! I also want to thank everyone for your kind words yesterday, regarding our move. You are all so sweet and it really made my day to see that you were all thinking of us and praying for us!

Have a great Thursday!
We are going to look at some apartments today, hopefully it goes well!
