topper

Best wishes to Rachel and Randy, who were married this weekend. While sitting at with new friends at the reception, Marilyn got up to take pictures of the wedding cake. When she returned, she commented how often the cake goes relatively unnoticed at wedding receptions. With all the time and money that is put into the cake, it's a shame that most of us do not give it much attention. Truth be told, I confess that I am more interested in eating it than gazing upon it.

After the reception, I helped a little as we prepared the room for the next morning's church service. Then I saw the cake topper being stored away. Now that I could have more control of the background, the idea of a picture was more enticing. I took my wife's camera and got one very simple picture. Then she and Agnes had some ideas for the background. I liked their input, and here's what we came up with:

It really helps when you get help and a little advice my friend.
Thats sure is a super shot.

Two very lovely photographs. I love the cake topper and I think the bride and groom would love these photos.

George said...

I like this second photo. It's really nice.

That's a big benefit from digital cameras, Imac. If someone says, "Try this..." I can easily do it; I have nothing to lose.

I'd send it to him, but the groom and I are not on speaking terms anymore, Denise. I invited him to come over for a game of Scrabble after the reception, and he refused. ...Some lame excuse about a "honeymoon cruise." Whatever!

Thanks George. The room's mercury lights made it tricky to find the right color.

Lovely.
What was the cake topper made of?
I hope it was sugar, and handmade, but it was probably plastic and made by a 10 year old in China.

Craver: Enjoyed your cake photos, very nicely captured.

I think it was plastic. Shammy, why would you think that it was made by a 10-year-old in China?

Oh, that cake was so good, Fishing Guy! I had a cup of decaf with it. Mmmm...

Congratulations to the newlyweds.

Because many small plastic things ARE made by 10 yr olds in Chana.
Unfortunately.

Nice to hear from you, Flutietootie. It was a pleasant and happy occasion.

Shammy, if you mean that China has 10-yr-olds doing factory work, that is terrible. A 10-yr-old should be outside riding bicycles, playing soccer and playing with siblings, not doing an adult's work.
