Well, I have been wanting to share this wonderful news with all of you for a LONG time, but I had to wait until I had the magazine images in hand so I could show you the FABULOUS news! As you can tell from the title…my cake and cookies were featured in not one, but two top wedding magazines! I couldn’t believe my ears when Karrie, the bride and one of my best friends, said that The Knot had contacted her talented photographer, Amy Squires, about publishing her wedding as a featured “real wedding” in their national magazine! We both screamed and jumped up and down and patiently waited as the issue came to print. Then we ran down to Border’s and picked up our own copies to share with friends and family! To let a little secret out I actually had to end up frosting, decorating, and stacking the whole cake at the hotel room the night and morning of the wedding since it was in San Diego and I needed to be there for all the festivities too (that’s what friends are for right!) Well all my pain, sweat, and tears paid off when I saw Karrie and Brian’s face as they saw the cake…getting published in a magazine was just the cherry on top!
For everyone that doesn’t know Karrie, she is one of the most talented people I know. I go to her for everything…her opinion, expertise on decorating, getting my website designed, and anything else I can think of! She is a graphic designer who specializes in website design and custom invitations, but really can basically do anything creative! She designed and made everything for her wedding decorations and I am so glad that The Knot recognized her amazing talent!
Well, if getting in one magazine wasn’t enough I was contacted by Southern California Brides about my silhouette cookies that I made for their wedding. They loved that I custom made the cookie cutters to match the bride and groom’s exact silhouettes and then designed the cake to incorporate their modern color scheme and design.
I thought I would leave you with these pictures of the beautiful bride and I…thanks so much Karrie for designing an amazing wedding and asking me to help along the way! Love you!
