We always love hearing the "how they met" or "where he proposed" or "site of their first date" or similar stories. And we do get to hear a lot of those doing what we do here at the Hawthorne Hotel, in making wedding dreams come true.
Last weekend we hosted a wedding that had a very unusual cake "topper" on the wedding cake. Here is the blog post were we wrote about that wedding on our "daily diary" blog: Sea Shells and Piggies Wedding
When you see this blog in the attached link, you will see why this is called "This Little Piggie" -- because there was a question about why they chose to have two little pigs as cake toppers.
I just learned today that this lovely couple went out on their first date together to a restaurant with "pig" in the name. Then, when they got engaged, it was at a different restaurant, also with "pig" in the name. (I believe neither of the restaurants are in Salem.)
So their cake topper of choice became two little pigs -- one that was modeled after her childhood piggie bank, and the other that was a copy of his childhood piggie bank. This was such a cute idea, I thought I would share it with you right here.

I hope to see you here, and learn about your clever ways of personalizing your wedding.
