A beautiful hand-painted cake—illustrating one of the season’s biggest trends—by Fishtown’s Whipped Bakeshop.

There are plenty of perks that come with working at a wedding magazine, but perhaps one of the sweetest advantagesespecially for dessert addicts like me—is that twice a year, on the days we shoot our gorgeous cake and flower spreads, we get to indulge in massive amounts of locally-made wedding cake. (Yes, it’s as glorious as it sounds, even if by day’s end we’re all in sugar comas and sick to our stomachs.)

Shauna's ring!

Shauna’s ring!

The couple: Shauna Byrnes and Ian Hammer, from Norristown.

The ring: My amazing ring is white gold, with a cushion-cut diamond on a twisted diamond band.

As much as I hate saying this, I pretty much picked out my ring. I was browsing Pinterest one day several months back and saw this ring.
