Ace Hotel Photo Shoot

Monday, June 13th, 2011

Happy Monday!  I am so happy to share this next photo shoot with you…it might be one of my favorites of all time!!!  One of my best girlfriends, Jesi Haack, wanted to do a fun shoot at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs and I knew I had to be in on it.  I love the fun pops of color everywhere and the florals that my sweet friend Carissa, from JL Designs, created are simply stunning! Gabriel Ryan Photography shot the fabulous photos!

For the cake I was really inspired by a chevron style pillow I saw online and wanted to mimic that on the cake, so Kyong hand painted the design in various color and then we accented the top of the cake with a vibrant sugar flower!

Featured: Southern California Knot Magazine

Thursday, January 20th, 2011

We’ve been waiting to share this with you for a while now, but we have been featured in The Knot Southern California for our “Vintage Games Wedding” photo shoot.  It was actually shot in my new loft that I bought last year before I had any of my furniture put in it.  Then we walked over to the park behind my loft and finished up the shoot…too funny.  I loved working with my fabulous team of vendors.  Here is how Jesi Haack described it on her blog…

“Vintage Games.  Ummm, YES!  When Sarah came to me with this concept, I was SO on board!  This is a styled shoot that illustrates a fun way to incorporate a couples’ love for fun and games!  We used rubix cubes for a party favor, Mai incorporated REAL bingo pieces in the bouquets, Posh girls used real game pieces in the escort cards and BINGO cards as menus! Melody added scrabble letters to her cake and make chocolate bingo cards too!  GET OUT!  We also were so lucky as to have The Knot feature this concept in their latest issue of The Knot Southern California.  AAAAAHHHHHH!!!”

Miley Cyrus’ 18th Birthday Party

Monday, November 22nd, 2010

Well as most of you know Miley Cyrus did an amazing job at the AMA’s last night and then went off to a huge 18th Birthday Celebration at Le Trousdale in West Hollywood!  We were beyond excited to be able to do the dessert spread and birthday cake for her!!!

We were told that she loves dream catchers and the bohemian style, so we focused the whole dessert table around that.  We did a tier birthday cake with hand carved dream catchers, sugar feathers, and sugar turquoise beads.  I wanted to stick with the color scheme of brown, gold, white, and turquoise and I loved the final outcome.  Not only did we do a giant cake, but we also did a custom dessert bar with over 500 desserts!  It was quite a spread!  I have to thank my dear friend and the fabulously talented Jesi Haack, from Jesi Haack Weddings, for the perfect backdrop she created for me!  She hand made all of the golden dream catchers and made the backdrop with ivory burlap and lace…I LOVED it!!!  Of course my wonderful girls, Elizabeth and Karrie, from Posh Paperie created the dessert cards that fit flawlessly with the whole look!

Well enough talking…here are the photos that are already all over the internet!

At the shop my mom, who is also the co-owner of Sweet & Saucy Shop with me, is know for being the Queen of Cake Lollipops so she did Red Velvet and Vanilla Pops and dusted some with golden shimmer!

I am absolutely so lucky to get to work with so many talented people all the time!  This wedding was a dream come true and you’ll see why when you look at the amazing photos that Ashley Rose took!  My fabulous friend Jesi Haack from Jesi Haack Weddings was the genius behind it!  This was the wedding she talked to me about for month and months, saying that she was SO excited for it and now I can see why.  The couple, Lauren & Jeff, were amazing and really let Jesi do her magic!  Carissa, from JL Designs, blew me away with her floral design as always & my girls at Posh Paperie, Karrie & Elizabeth, designed the most adorable invitations ever!

For the dessert table we just wanted to make it bright, whimsy, & lots of fun!  The backdrop that Jesi created for us definitely helped pull it all together!  Hayley & Nate set it all up & I think they did a fabulous job!

Three Wonderful Weddings!

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

Wedding season is in full swing here at Sweet & Saucy Shop!  As I’m typing this post I can’t believe that this upcoming weekend I actually have 8 weddings!!!  I remember the days when one wedding a weekend was a lot for me…too funny how times have changed!  My team has grown and so have the number of weddings we can take on each weekend.  We still love working with each individual couple and seeing their wedding come to life & being a party of their sweet celebration!  These next 3 weddings were such a pleasure to be a part of and I’m so happy to be sharing them with you!  First up is a wedding that I had the pleasure of working with the AMAZING Jesi Haack again!  I truly love that lady and am so blessed to work with her a lot.  Her clients are always such a pleasure to work with and this time was no different.  Beth and Jon wanted a unique wedding with lots of organic, rustic touches to it.  We decided to do a pistachio covered cake with a large fresh kale flower accent.  We also created a mini dessert bar with lots of goodies!

IMG_8331.JPG

Jesi and I wanted the cake to stand alone this time and have it’s own space so we decided to use one of Jesi’s dressers and fill it full of moss…LOVED how it turned out!  I have to thank Jesi’s fabulous husband Ryan Haack for supplying me with some great shots of the cake & mini dessert bar.  I can always count on him for perfect photos of my treats!

This wedding I actually worked on quite a while ago, but am finally now getting the chance to blog it!  I had to take a ferry boat over to Catalina Island for this wedding, but it was worth it!  The bride made a lovely backdrop for the dessert table and really wanted to incorporate the Spanish tiles that are all over Catalina Island in her wedding so we tried pulling them into the dessert bar on the cake and sugar cookies!

For the cake we also did sugar flower orchids!

This last wedding was at the beautiful Surf & Sand Hotel in Laguna Beach.  Devon & Shariff were dream clients to work with and I’m so happy I was apart of their special day.  Since it was near the ocean we went with a nautical theme, but wanted to modernize it a little bit.  I got inspiration for the cake from a brooch that was at Anthropologie and then recreated it in sugar!  I have to thank the lovely Lauren Hillary for these gorgeous photos!
