Nikia and Kyle met skiing in Vail, Colorado and soon discovered that they shared a love of the outdoors and snow. After dating and adopting a dog together, aptly named "Vail", they were engaged on the top of Beehive Mountain in Acadia National Park. So it was easy to decide on a season, theme, and location when it came time to plan their wedding. It had to be winter, on a mountain, with lots of skiing references. The Mountain Top Inn and Resort was the perfect place to make all of their wedding dreams come true. Their love for the snow was evident when it started snowing during our outdoor ceremony. It was a good thing they opted for a hot chocolate bar for their guests to enjoy before the ceremony! Bridesmaids, parents of the bride and the bride herself were transported to the ceremony by horse drawn sleigh. Fur coats and wraps were a must for the outdoor ceremony, and snow boots and vintage skis played a major role in the decor. The wedding invitations were ski themed, guests signed a pair of skis in lieu of a traditional guest book, and even the cocktail list was a ski sign.

Traditional cake is not the only choice when it comes to dessert at your wedding. In fact, more times than not these days, we as wedding photographers are seeing trends in smaller bite-sized desserts and tables full of colorful candies, with take-home bags that can double as guest favors. The sweet-tooth in me just loves this trend, though I rarely get the time to indulge. Here are my top five favorite dessert trends right now:
ICE CREAM, ESPECIALLY BEN & JERRY’S CARTS
COOKIES AND MILK
BITE-SIZED DESSERT BARS AND MINI-CUPCAKES
