If your groom can’t get enough of chasing a little round white ball around a perfectly manicured course — otherwise known as the addicting game of golf! — he’ll love the groom’s cake pictured in this Atlanta wedding, with images by Stephen DeVries. Midsummer weather can bring out the duffer in everybody; on this particular occasion, it also brings out the “glam.” The bride’s dress is a white confection of a plain bodice, jeweled high waist, and pure-girly ruffles all the way to the floor; her white sandals are jeweled to match. White gold rings make an elegant statement, as do the white bouquets with green “bud” accents. The maids are in apple-green short satin and sparkly shoes; the men look dashing in simple black suiting with miniature lilies as boutonnieres.

Guests see signs advising them to “pick a seat, not a side,” and are invited to write messages to the bride and groom on individual slates — complete with chalk. After a quick prayer, the bride takes her father’s arm; they pause for a second, peeking around the corner, before they take the long walk down a petal-strewn aisle to her groom, Next, it’s time for cakes…plural. Yes, indeed, that is a golf ball topping the groom’s cake — embellished with the happy couple’s initials, of course. The bride isn’t outdone: a sumptuous white cake bears frosting flowers down its length, and the bride and groom sample both of the cakes as the dancing begins. Finally, in a burst of light from sparklers, the happy couple takes their leave, off into their promising future.
