Eva and Bill DeShon cut their wedding cake, 1953.

Wedding cakes are an art form — an edible art form for that matter. And for many brides, the wedding cake is just as important as the dress and bouquet on their big day. A wedding cake is not something that is simply eaten and forgotten; it makes a statement with how good it looks, how great it tastes, and it reflects the bride and groom as a couple.

In 1953, Eva and Bill DeShon were married with barely a cent to their names. Nevertheless, they were able to pull off an intimate, beautiful affair complete with a gorgeous spread. Their wedding cake isn’t grandiose, but it is simply elegant and looks delicious.

Look closely and you can see that the frothy white frosting is accented with dainty leaves. We also absolutely love the gorgeous lace tablecloth and the napkins imprinted with "Eva and Bill" on them. A big thank you to reader Joe DeShon for submitting this beautiful photo!
