Our Favorite Wedding Day Sweets and Treats | New Mexico Wedding Photographers

We get to see a lot of stunning wedding cakes in this business— surprising, we know. But over the years, the creativity for not only cakes, but wedding desserts and treats in general, has really blown our minds! Gone are the days of the stark white cake, and the trend of "naked" wedding cakes has also passed us by. We have gathered all of our favorite sugary goodness for you to be inspired by when choosing your own wedding day sweets, and there's a little something for everybody: classic cakes, bold and trendy cakes, pies, donuts, and more! Keep scrolling to see all the stunning (and delicious) noms!

Donuts and Candy and Popsicles, Oh My!

Sometimes, you don't want anything even close to traditional... and we support that! Whether it's a donut stand, a donut wall, a popsicle cart, or an entire candy table, your desserts will communicate how fun you guys are, while still satisfying everyone's sweet tooth! Don't be afraid to be different and get creative: we had a couple serve fancy glasses of A&W Root Beer, as her last name started with an A and his with a W. It was a hit!
