It's not very often that we start telling you about a couple by describing their cake, but when it comes to Kathryn and Hunter, who are both Aggies, huge fans of cake, and totally committed to wowing each other with surprises, well, then, the cake is almost as perfect a symbol of their relationship as the wedding rings! We've seen Aggie cakes before. We've seen Field Cakes before. ....but we've never seen a cake like this one. It was so amazingly large and ornate that when Hunter, the groom, first saw it after the wedding ceremony, he exclaimed incredulously, "that's a cake!?!?!" This groom's cake was a perfect model of the new Kyle Field that is currently under construction, and it was so large that it filled up almost a whole wing of the Barton Creek Resort Ballroom, and the rest of the room was filled with wonder, awe, and of course, lots of laughter. All of the Texas A&M fans in attendance beamed with pride when they saw it!

Barton Creek Resort, where the wedding was held, sits perfectly nestled on the edge of the capital city of Austin and the rolling hill country that lies to the west of this Texas metropolis. The suites have a lovely view of one of the greenest areas in Texas, and that's where Kathryn got ready with her bridesmaids and family on the wedding day.
"On a Tuesday in December I decided I wanted to get my very own Christmas tree to have in my apartment where I lived alone. I expressed my interest to Hunter and he was a bit overly excited about this idea. So, later that night we got a Christmas tree and I decorated it with gold and silver stars. After placing what I thought was the final ornament, Hunter handed me a little stocking and said there was one more for me to hang. I glanced down at the stocking to see a brown box. Hunter took the box out of the stocking got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!" --Kathryn
