Chattanooga Aquarium wedding. The staff there were wonderful and the venue was spectacular! The wedding was held on the fourth floor in the Tropical Rainforest / Butterfly Sanctuary section of the aquarium.
In keeping with that theme, the bride wanted some butterfly accents on her bridal cake. I put my brother to work building us another custom cake stand out of a Baby Bio Orb fish tank. Inside the tank we put moss, twigs, and some mechanical butterflies that I bought from Etsy. They are so thin and delicate, but their wings move like a real butterfly! Lots of people at the event thought they were real!!
The wedding cake itself is all buttercream, with each tier getting gradually lighter.The white swirls were then piped on. I was very happy with the cake and the natural background the Tennessee Aquarium provided made it pop even more.
Stay tuned next time for the accompanying groom's cake... a scale model Martin guitar. Have a great week!!
