    When it comes to wedding inspiration, nothing is quite so magical as seeing what real couples do for their big day. That's why 100 Layer Cake is our source for peeping the most beautiful ways brides and grooms say "I do," featuring weddings from Australia to Napa. Brides, beware: You're going to want to pin just about everything you see. And, even if you're not engaged, you'll want to check it out just to enjoy the love story.
    You know how some people work better under a deadline?

    Thanks to J. Bird Photography for the romantic photos ahead.
