From the bride:

“ON FEBRUARY 3RD 2015, MY HUSBAND MADE ME THE HAPPIEST GIRL ON THE PLANET WHEN WE TIED THE KNOT AND SAID I DO! I COULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR A MORE MAGICAL DAY. WE BOTH WANTED A STRESS FREE AND SIMPLE OUTDOOR WEDDING. WE HAD AN OUTDOOR WEDDING WITH UNDER 30 GUESTS, SWEET AND SIMPLE. WE MET IN LAS VEGAS WHERE MY HUSBAND GREW UP, SO WE DECIDED TO GET MARRIED AT A SPECIAL PLACE THAT WE VISITED A LOT WHEN WE LIVED THERE…RED ROCK CANYON. WORDS CANNOT DESCRIBE THE BEAUTY OF THIS PLACE. THE RED ROCKS ARE LIKE NOTHING YOU’VE SEEN BEFORE, TRULY MAGICAL. IN ROMANIA WHEN SOMEONE GETS MARRIED YOU TELL THEM ‘CASA DE PIATRA’, WHICH LITERALLY MEANS HOUSE OF ROCK. YOU SAY THIS TO WISH THEM A MARRIAGE BUILT ON A SOLID FOUNDATION. I MEAN CAN THIS BE A MORE FITTING PLACE TO GET MARRIED!? WE WERE SURROUNDED BY ENORMOUS RED ROCKS! I SAY WE STARTED OUR MARRIAGE ON A FOUNDATION BUILT OF THE STURDIEST ROCK OUT THERE!
 I SURPRISED MY HUSBAND WITH A MINI RUSTIC NAKED WEDDING CAKE AND TOPPER THAT WAS JUST FOR THE TWO OF US TO ENJOY, BUT I DIDN’T WANT TO LEAVE OUR GUESTS OUT. I FIGURED WHAT BETTER WAY THAN WITH MINI MASON JAR CAKES! I USED THE SAME BUTTER CAKE RECIPE BUT I MADE CUPCAKES INSTEAD AND MADE HALF THE FROSTING WITH PINK VANILLA BUTTERCREAM AND HALF WITH CHOCOLATE BUTTERCREAM, SO THAT GUESTS WOULD HAVE A CHOICE. NOT ONLY COULD THEY ENJOY DELICIOUS CAKE, THEY HAD A LITTLE MASON JAR TO TAKE HOME! WE HAD A VINTAGE AND RUSTIC THEME SO I ADORNED THE MINI MASON JARS WITH TWINE, A HANDMADE MONOGRAMMED TAG, AND A MINI WOODEN SPOON. I HAVE TO SAY IT WAS ONE OF MOST REWARDING DIY PROJECTS I’VE EVER WORKED ON. OUR GUESTS FELL IN LOVE! “
