Making your wedding day as unique as you and your betrothed can be such an exciting challenge. Beyond cake toppers and color schemes, exploring alternatives to wedding cake is a great way to go. These 15 recipes serve up the hottest pastry trend right now: pie. You can go classic and all-American like LC did with her wedding apple pie or borrow a similar, layered look to cake with a stacked creation, and so much more!
