Cake and cupcakes for Jessica Hamilton's wedding

Today Jessica Hamilton's wedding and reception. I was asked to make the wedding cake for the top of Jessica's cupcake combo wedding cake. She wanted it to be kind of vintage or rustic.
It is a chocolate cake with two layers. One is a chocolate mousse filling and the other is a raspberry filling. It is covers with a Swiss Meringue Buttercream with a touch of almond flavor. I know, it sounds like a bunch of flavors together but my taste testers, Dad and Grandma assure me that it is good. Angela Gardner and I decorated the cupcakes. She made cuts flowers out of fondant to match the colors of the flower on the cake.
The whole effect of the table and door behind the cake table are fun.

Here is what the rest of the hall looked like. It started with the quest table.
Area for gifts, cute bench with Mr and Mrs pillows.

Area for aquainting quests with the couple.
Backdrop for the Bridal Party.
Centerpieces are spay painted trees with scrapbooking circles that have been punched to slide on the branches. There are layered beans in the bottom of the jar. There is also a mini album of the couple and some ovations in another canning jar plus a candle.
Vintage wall of the couple's interests.
Fun quilt for their wedding.
Favor table of mini jars of jam, popcorn balls, and candy.
