Saddlerock Ranch Wedding

February 10th, 2012

I am so excited to share this absolutely GORGEOUS wedding we were lucky enough to be a part of!  It was just featured on Style Me Pretty and they described all the details of the wedding perfectly…

“Vibrant doesn’t even begin to describe this cultural beauty crafted by Events of Love and Splendor and captured by The Image is Found! Oh no, this fête would need a completely new adjective for all of us to fully grasp the lovely that is this behind the take.your.breath.away details and florals whipped up by R. Jack Balthazar. And I haven’t even mentioned the masterpiece by the cake queens at the Sweet and Saucy Shop – it’s pin-worthy perfection. The entire affair is completely stop and gawk gorgeous. So stop and gawk I shall, maybe for an embarrassing amount of time, because a wedding this new adjective worthy doesn’t come around every day.”




How stunning are these photos…








I was blown away by the attention to detail and decor…the vibrant colors were simply amazing!






We of course did a full mini dessert bar with lots of bright pops of color and yummy desserts.







For the wedding cake we wanted it to be bold and really stand out so we used lots of bright colors and then detailed it with gold…I’m in love!






Thanks so much for letting us be a party of your special day Vipula & Dan!

My Maternity Photos!!!

February 7th, 2012

Well I have been waiting and waiting to share these photos with you and I am so happy to finally be able to!  This past year has been one of the best years of my life as my husband and I have been preparing to welcome our little baby girl, Blake Eileen Brandon, into the family!  I am writing this post at 5am having been awake already with little blake’s wiggling and hiccups (her favorite thing to do inside my belly) since 3am, but I have never been filled with more joy!  I thank that Lord for the special gift He is giving to us and am counting down the days (1 month left) until little blake arrives!

My dear friend Carlie, from Gabriel Ryan Photographers, took our maternity photos and I really don’t think I would’ve picked anyone else to do it…she captured everything perfectly and these photos are something I will treasure for the rest of my life…thanks Carlie!  We were also lucky enough to be featured on the blog, Onto Baby, my new obsession these past few months, so you can check out their full post here!

As many of my friends and family members will tell you I certainly am doing my fair share of shopping for my little girl…I just can’t stop myself when I see tiny clothes and shoes!  Yes I know she probably will only wear those shoes for half a second, but they have made me smile so much already and her tiny feet aren’t even in them yet!

My sweet hubby Tim has been the best partner ever to go through this pregnancy with…I will cherish every memory of him talking to little blake in my belly and seeing the joy on his face as he talks about all his future plans with his little girl.  She is one lucky lady to have such an amazing daddy!

Of course we had to do a couple wardrobe changes…just in case my pregnant and ever changing body didn’t look so good in one outfit :) Thankfully Carlie is a master at what she does and made all my outfits work!

Valentine’s Day Cake Lollipops – Shipping Nationwide, Plus a GIVEAWAY!!!

February 4th, 2012

So sorry for the lack of posts lately…sadly my computer situation hasn’t been the best these days.  Our house had a home invasion/burglary a couple weeks ago where our house computer was stolen (good news though the police caught them & it was returned a week later) and then just last week my main computer for work and personal had the hard drive bomb.  Needless to say I cried about it and now it is off awaiting analysis and I am left without a computer, photos, but with lots of anxiety :(  Well enough about my sob story…life is moving along and I am almost at the end of my pregnancy…yippee!  My little girl is due March 8th and I can barely wait for her to arrive! Here is a little sneak peak of me and two of my pregnant girlfriends, Heather & Ashlyn from Carter & Cook, from my baby shower…more photos to come soon!

Crew’s Ombre Surf 1st Birthday Party

January 2nd, 2012

To start off the New Year right I thought I would blog one of my favorite kid’s parties yet!  My sweet friend and photographer Ashley Rose’s little boy, Crew, turned 1 this year and I was lucky enough to be a part of this amazing party!  Ashley is a super mom and basically did all of the design, decorating, projects, etc for the whole day!



Some of my best girlfriends Elizabeth and Karrie from Posh Paperie created the fabulous invitations and the Wedding Chicks made these adorable printed bags!





How cute is this cereal and breakfast bar…






Chocolate milk shot glasses anyone :)



For Crew’s birthday desserts we went with the ombre blue color scheme and added some surf themed touches to the desserts.


I love this new ombre buttercream technique that we have been doing at the shop and thought it would be perfect for Crew’s cake…it’s modern, clean, and bold.  We added a fondant surfboard and some gold fish to the bottom of the cake and voila! Ashley also rented this fab table from Found Vintage Rentals!


We created some ombre blue cake lollipops and added mini shark fins to the tops of them.  For the bottom of the dish I thought it would be fun put the gold fish again.


We then did some mini cupcakes, vanilla panna cotta shot glasses tinted blue, and chocolate dipped ombre rice crispy treats!


Here is the cutie digging into his cake….love these photos!



Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and Happy New Year!

sTORIbook Weddings Episode Tonight: A Marie Antoinette Wedding

December 27th, 2011

A couple months back we had the pleasure of doing two of the weddings for Tori & Dean’s new show sTORIbook Weddings and we are excited to announce that the final wedding we worked on with them is airing for the first time TONIGHT December 27th at 10/9c on the Oxygen Network.  I have to say that this is my favorite wedding yet that we got to be a part of and we made a TON of desserts and cakes for it! The theme was Marie Antoinette and we pulled out all the stops for it.  I even had a fun time filming a private cake tasting at Tori & Dean’s house for the bride and groom, which will be on the show tonight too.



We created a 5 tier dusty blue cake with lots of gold accents that was set on a table all by itself…


Heavenly Blooms created the over-the-top gorgeous flowers for the big wedding day!


Like I said, we pulled out all the stops for the grand mini dessert table that had multiple single tier decorated cakes as well.






The Vibiana was the perfect location for this over the top gorgeous wedding and provided such a lovely backdrop for our table.






I loved the color scheme for this wedding and it was so fun to incorporate it into our desserts…the blue and gold worked perfectly for this french macaron tower.











Tori & Dean did a fabulous job of decorating the whole venue!  I loved the table set up and details…






Can you say over the top luxury!




Thanks so much for checking out our desserts and we hope that you tune in tonight to see the full episode!
