LeeAnne Locken married Rich Emberlin on April 27 in Dallas — and The Real Housewives of Dallas charity maven spared absolutely zero expense on the affair. Consider that her $25,000 custom-made wedding dress designed by Dallas-based designer Nardos Imam — and the whole wedding cost about $4.5 million, LeeAnne told People. And those costs certainly extended to the lavish wedding menu, punctuated by an array of over-the-top desserts... and bubbly to wash them down.
We already knew that LeeAnne's wedding cake would be a towering 12-foot tall affair, thanks to a preview in People — and now People has photos of the 72-inch round champagne cake with buttercream frosting from baker Shane Morgan and his company, Posh Cakes. The intricate cake — decorated with a floral motif, monograms, and glittering rhinestones — was topped with a "castle design to symbolize their fairytale marriage."
LeeAnne told People, “This cake is by far the largest wedding cake to ever be served in this state! I think the sheer size not only demonstrates the love that Rich and I have for each other, but also the love that is felt between us and our community.”
(And certainly, who would have expected any less from a wedding — what was preceded by an engagement cake shaped like a circus tent, and the most explicit bachelorette party cake we've ever seen!)
But — as if that wasn't enough — that wasn't all for the sweets on offer. Desserts also included a tower of Sprinkles Cupcakes — alongside cupcakes stacked inside the shelves of gilded cabinets, lending the sense of a whole, fantasy room built around the treats, according to the exclusive photos in People.
As for the drinks, sips included wine from Hailstone Vineyards, passed tequila shots, and a Stoli vodka bar making customized drinks in disco-ball glasses.
Outside, guests could scoop up some champers at the Bubble Tap Champagne Trailer, a vintage camper trailer renovated into a mobile bar.
