EMBRACE THE SEASON WITH PIE
What could be better than pie for a fall wedding? Nancy and Tom’s pie table was one to remember. The couple had both full-size and adorable, miniature pies from Mom’s Apple Pie. With their autumnal ceremony arch as a backdrop, this dessert display became a stunning centerpiece at their reception! See more crisp fall wedding goodness from Nancy and Tom’s big day here.
SAY “I DO” TO DONUTS
Donuts are always a good idea, and Brittany & Jason made this treat even sweeter with personalized paper to-go bags.

UP-LEVEL YOUR SUGAR FIX WITH A FOOD TRUCK
Turn your wedding dessert into an experience! In addition to a classic cake, Heather and Grant had a donut truck at their wedding. These sweet treats from Astro Doughnuts were a fun surprise for their guests as they moved the party outdoors for fresh donuts.
When it comes to neutral-toned weddings, Heather and Grant’s is one of our favorites. See all the moody neutrals here.
SPIN UP SOME COTTON CANDY
When you think cotton candy, you probably think of a county fair, or maybe even the circus. But who says this whimsical delight can’t make an appearance at your wedding? Since it is Caroline’s favorite dessert, she knew she had to have this cotton candy cart by Fluffness at her modern boho wedding to Michael!
MAKE IT A SURPRISE
Surprise your guests with a late-night snack. Amanda and Dustin had cookies, milk, and ice cream sandwiches served fresh off the truck by Captain Cookie & the Milkman – the perfect treat for a summer evening! See more photos from their classic white wedding here.
HAVE IT ALL WITH A DESSERT BAR
Can’t choose just one dessert? Have a dessert bar instead! This delicious spread of miniature sweets by Signature Sweets by Amanda gave Caroline and Michael’s guests plenty to choose from. With so many options, it’s much easier to satisfy everyone’s tastes! See more photos from Caroline and Michael’s modern boho wedding.
