Lots of New Weddings

We have been busy bees over at the shop these last few months and that means lots of WEDDINGS!  Here are a couple lovely weddings that we have had the pleasure of working on!  This first wedding at Rancho Las Lomas was for the sweetest couple and I loved that they sent photos back to me so I could see them enjoying the desserts!

We made the custom cake stand and backdrop for the couple.  They wanted to incorporate a rustic and earthy touch to the table, but still wanted it to look elegant.  They decided to do a two tier cake and then cupcakes, so guests could choose which one they wanted.

This next wedding I had the pleasure of working with Carissa from JL Designs & Christina from Simply Modern Weddings.  We ended up doing a small cake that pulled in design from their invitation and then a variety of mini desserts.  Christina & Carissa definitely pulled off a gorgeous wedding with lovely details!

So blessed to work with you ladies!  Here is one more fun wedding cake I was able to do recently for a sweet couple.  They wanted to incorporate color onto the cake, so we did a butter yellow base with dark grey lace accents and a purple sugar flower accent.

I recently had the pleasure of working with my friends Ashlyn & Heather from Carter & Cook Event Co. on a photoshoot for Exquisite Wedddings Magazine.  They are an amazing design team and I knew the photoshoot would turn out gorgeous.  You can check out their blog to read about all the details of the shoot, but here are some photos!
