Vendor Spotlight - Cakes by LaMeeka

On my hunt for wonderful vendors to work with, I had the pleasure of meeting LaMeeka Edwards, pastry chef and cake artisan of Cakes by LaMeeka. LaMeeka's cakes are custom designed and taste as good as they look. See below. LaMeeka's speciality is the "Pillow Cake", a multi-layered cake in which layers resemble satin pillows. Visit her website to see more of her custom designed cakes. LaMeeka has baked cakes for couples featured in the latest issue of Southern Wedding Magazine, TLC's The Wedding Story, and Bridezilla. She bakes cakes for all types of occasions and if you don't have a special occasion, but have a craving for something sweet to eat, head on down to the Bakery Shop in Forest Park, GA.

These shoes are made for walking

There's nothing like a cute pair of high heel shoes, especially on your wedding day. Those cute shoes, however, must be comfortable. Because let me tell you - it's hard to be cute when your feet hurt :( and you want to be cute for your wedding pictures. Try a wedge heel. They are cute and comfortable without sacrificing style. Here are a few wedge heels I found on BridalPeople.

Vendor Spotlight - Scott-Bey Studios

Extraordinary, exquisite, precise, creative, and innovative. These are just a few words that describe the work of Jeffrey Scott-Bey, the photographer and mastermind behind Scott-Bey Studios. I had the pleasure of meeting Jeffrey and got a chance to view some of his work. I see why he's considered a leader in photographic excellence. Jeffrey's photgraphs are the perfect marriage of art and science. Take a look...
At Scott-Bey Studios, "good is not good enough when excellence is possible". Scott-Bey Studios was awarded the 2009 Bride's Choice Award. To see more of Jeffrey's fabulous photos, go to
