Rebecca and Daniel’s cake was a three-tiered buttercream treat -- the top and bottom layers were white with raspberry and lemon filling, and the middle was red velvet with buttercream filling. The sugar flowers that topped the cake matched the wedding color scheme and a cake topper of a bride and groom riding a bicycle was set on the second tier.

The Bride Rebecca Thomas, 24, financial ops rep The Groom Daniel Curtis, 27, computer specialist The Date June 24 Just less than a year later, the day before Thanksgiving Day, Daniel spontaneously proposed to Rebecca outside of the restaurant they had gone to on their first Valentine’s Day. Aside from a day-of coordinator, Rebecca and Daniel planned their own wedding. With their oceanside tent’s clean white palette to work with, Rebecca and Daniel chose elegant shades of pink, green, and orange.
