"But truly, we had some incredibly generous friends and family pitching in. Chanti's bench was the deepest: her good friend made our cake — vanilla bean with a raspberry cream filling and buttercream frosting — (which was ah-mazing, by the way), another customized our cake topper, and a combination of our friends and wedding party assembled all the bouquets, table arrangements, and boutonnieres the morning of. Heck, my mother-in-law did my hair! My nails and my makeup were both me, though — that was basically my entire contribution to the wedding."
