Our sweet tooth had some serious style in 2016! Geometric details reigned supreme while ombre continued to swoon us and naked cakes kept the spotlight, but with fresh twists (such as dusted and deconstructed). So grab some champagne and stroll down memory lane with us as we look back on the best wedding cakes we've featured in 2016.
David and Luke's wedding cake hit two major trends we spotted throughout the year — ombre and geometric — and their modern design was topped off with a stylish cake topper. | Photography by Mike Olbinski | Cake design by A Bakeshop
We were obsessed the moment we laid eyes on this cake when it appeared on set for our V5 issue. Details such as gold and neon triangles over the blush watercolor treatment, finished with a (real!) pineapple topper earned this cake a spot on our Best Of list. | Photography by Mikkel Paige | Planning: Color Pop Events | Florals by Sachi Rose Design | Cake design by Lael Cakes
As a lover of all things wedding and a fierce cheerleader for marriage equality, I decided to marry my two passions and create a resource where all couples—gay, straight and lesbian—can be equally represented. Armed with seven years in both print and online lifestyle journalism, I dove headfirst into this passion project in 2013 and Love Inc. was born.
I’m inspired every day by the couples that grace our pages, from the can’t-live-without-you grasps to the gentle sweeping away of a happy tear, the love that they so clearly have for each other is intoxicating, and drives me to create the best product possible … while enjoying every second of it.
