Vintage Inspired Wedding Cake!!!

Well, I am finally feeling like life is getting back to some sort of pattern and I am really enjoying it!  Today I am actually at my in-laws beach house in Newport Beach and then off to lunch and shopping with my girlfriend Kate!  But before I left for my day of fun I thought I would post these gorgeous photos from a recent wedding that I had the pleasure of doing.  Courtney Toney of Joyful Weddings & Events completely blew me away with the look of this wedding.  She worked hand in hand with the bride and groom who were very involved with the planning of their wedding day since their reception was actually in their backyard.  I loved my wedding day too, but if I were able to go back in time I think I wish this was the style of my wedding…intimate, detailed inspired, and a touch of vintage…love, love, love it!  The bride and groom were so much fun to work with and really let me try out some new ideas with the design of their cake!  Lastly, I have to say that Amy Squires did an amazing job with the photography!  I was able to work with able on my first real wedding back in the day and it was so much fun seeing her work her magic again with this wedding!  






For the dessert station Courtney found the most adorable vintage cart!  For the cake design the bride wanted to incorporate sugar lace, pearls, and lots of vintage details!  We accented the cake with a fabulous sugar magnolia flower too!  To add to the details the bride wanted to do some mini desserts as well, so we had cake lollipops, mini red velvet cupcakes, and mini cheesecakes with raspberries.




Here are a couple more details shots of the gorgeous day!









I also took a couple detail shots of the desserts and cake so I could share them with you!  They are not as good as Amy’s, but hopefully they will do!







Thanks for checking out the photos…I would love to hear from you!

  26. Erika says:

    Your work is just gorgeous and the wedding overall looks amazing. I thought it was a photo shoot for a magazine! I directed my sister here to get ideas for the cake for her wedding but we are on the east coast so we can’t come to you directly. Good luck with your shop!

  27. leslie says:

    Such loveliness!

    And the other day, after craving something small + sweet, I sent my husband out to your shop. He brought home a red velvet lollipop cupcake. Divine! Mmm!

  28. Love those Mason jars and that vintage cake. YUMMY!

  29. El says:

    Wow- those photos. They look better than any magazine I’ve looked at in a very long time. Bravo!

  30. This wedding is GORGEOUS, and I can’t stop staring at the cake – incredible! I want to go back and do it all over again…without any of the planning, of course :) Simply beautiful!!

  31. Hello!!!

    I reached out to you via email but thought it might be better to post on your blog as well because as I can see,…. you are collecting a lot of cake plates. Can you point me in the direction of where I can find the white round cake plates? Particularly the small size. I’m really interested in getting one for our cake. I hope that you can see my email address even though it does not post publically. If not, I sent you an email last week with 2010 in the email address.

    Thank you in advance!!!!

    An Atlanta 2010 Bride!!!!

  32. I just want to thank you for all the beautiful pictures and wonderful recipes that you have posted throughout you blog. I have been making notes a long the way in hopes of one day getting the nerve to try my luck. :-) Just a suggestion – but I think it would be nice if you added your favorite cookbooks to your extensive list.. I found myself going through your blog again to locate the names of all of your favorite books. Just a suggestion — it could just be me. I don’t mind going through your past post even if it is just to look at the pics.
