I have been waiting for a while to post this uber-fun wedding! I knew when I first met the couple that this was going to be very creative and beautiful wedding! They had such fabulous ideas and weren’t scared of putting in the extra time to pull off a one-of-a-kind dessert display. Not only were they super creative, but their wedding planner and my personal friend, Jesi Haack of Jesi Haack Weddings, is one of those people who is SO talented and loves pulling off gorgeous, yet unique events! Thanks so much to my other friend, Adrianne Bonafede, who is a great photographer and came along with me to help capture a lot of these yummy images. Their wedding photographer, Juan Posada, of Posada Photo shot some lovely images too and was kind enough to share them with me!
On a side note I wanted to say “THANK YOU” to all my blog readers because this past week I passed the 1,000,000 view mark!!! I could’ve never imagined having that many views on my site…when my husband first suggested I start writing a blog I thought he was crazy…I remember saying to him “Who would want to read what I write and look at my silly little photos!” BUT I guess I was mistaken, and I have to say thanks for proving me wrong! This has been so much fun and I absolutely love getting to connect with people all over the world through this silly little blog!
Here is a little behind the scenes info about the wedding via Jesi Haack’s blog…
“This clean, modern, design inspired wedding showcased Sarah and Cezanne’s love for ultra-hip designer, Jonathan Adler and The Parker, a chic resort in Palm Springs. From the custom designed monogram, courtesy of the groom, to the fruity, Creamsicle signature cocktails, it was impossible for their guests not to feel drenched in chic exuberance. Each reception table claimed the name of one of the couples’ favorite mid century designers and the fortune cookie favors illustrated the story of their engagement. Everywhere they looked the guests were refreshed with an eyeful of buttercream yellow, tangerine orange and lime green detail. The tantalizingly tempting dessert display had every taste bud in the room screaming for a mini-cake lollipop, or a mouthful of cotton candy. Paired with the newly renovated, modern decor of The Belamar Hotel in Manhattan Beach, it was a dynamic display that could not be matched. Maybe not even by The Parker itself ”
Sarah & Cezanne both wanted their guests to enjoy an array of tasty mini desserts as well as having a custom wedding cake that incorporated the pattern they created which was seen throughout their wedding. We used edible frosting sheets to print the pattern on the cake as well as on the sugar cookies and then created handmade sugar orchids to surround the top tier of the cake. I have to say that my sister outdid herself with these flowers…they are gorgeous!
Here are some more details shots of the wedding!
For the mini desserts we decided to pull the yellow and orange color scheme throughout the look by adding cute candy to the cupcakes and using liners that matched too!
We then dipped the chocolate cake pops and pretzels in matching chocolate as well.

And last, but not least the glorious little mini key lime pies, passion fruit, coconut, macadamia nut tarts, and monogram cookies…aren’t they cute!
And what’s a dessert bar without a little cotton candy!
Thanks so much Sarah & Cezanne for letting me be apart of your special day!
