We skipped a couple of the reception traditions, like tossing the garter and bouquet, but we did include the champagne bride and groom toast and cutting the cake.
I got our champagne glasses at Anthropologie. They're from the Galleria Collection.
Our height difference made the champagne toast a little complicated.
We eventually got the hang of it after Sam squatted down.
We had 5 difference cakes and 4 pies (I'll post about that next week). We decided to cut the salted caramel cake because we were most excited about that flavor.
To cut the cake we used my great-great grandparents cake knife that was used at their wedding in 1895.
After (nicely) exchanging our cake bites, Sam cut a huge piece of cake and we split it. It was delicious!
Next week I'll go into more detail about our cakes!
