Smog Shop Wedding

Monday, May 9th, 2011

I absolutely LOVE working with Angle Swanson from Love and Splendor on weddings!  Her clients always have such amazing design and are equally as sweet!  This wedding that we got to do at The Smog Shoppe was so much fun.  We did an eclectic style dessert bar with some natural woodsy elements and then even got to make a crazy groom’s cake too…

Last, but not least the crazy groom’s cake we promised.  The clients both shared a love of collecting these Japanese toy bears that come in all different designs and for the groom’s cake the bride surprised her husband with the wood style Be@rbrick Doll done in cake!  You can check out the real doll here.

Woodland Themed 1st Birthday Party

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

I love when I get to work with creative clients!  Sarah is a perfect example of a client that just blows my mind and gets me so excited about making desserts!  She wanted to make her son, Finn’s, 1st birthday party fabulous and boy did she!  She made all the design pieces herself and truly amazed me with her creativity and talent…can you say future party planner or what!?!?

Sarah wanted to create a “Woodland” style look for the party and so we made the desserts accordingly.  Sarah not only did all the decorating for the party, but she even made some of the desserts too!  This is seriously one of the cutest kid’s birthday parties I have ever seen and I was so blessed to be a part of it!  Thanks Sarah!  And here is the amazing little family!

For the desserts we made owl cookies, mini key lime pies, mini candy bar cupcakes, rustic pies and other tasty treats!  Sarah wanted us to recreate a little deer for the cupcake that matched the one on her invitations and I have to say it turned out adorable!

A Regal Affair

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

2009 seemed to fly by so fast that I found myself with so many weddings that I still needed to blog about!  This next wedding is straight out of a fairytale and the photos show just how stunning this couple looked on their wedding day!  Jennifer and Mike had the help of Ashley Powell, of Agape Planning, to pull off their gorgeous wedding.  I loved the color scheme they choose and found the pops of gold, red, and turquoise worked perfectly together.  The wedding was held at The Nixon Library and  White Haute Photography captured some lovely photos that really showed off the beauty of this couple.

For the cake we wanted to incorporate all the colors as well as add some intricate design.  We made a red dahlia sugar flower to accent the bottom tier too.

Details Details

Monday, October 12th, 2009

Hopefully you know by now that I believe that it’s the details that are most important!  No matter what event you are trying to put on and no matter what budget you have you can definitely make your event unforgettable if you spend time on the details. This wedding is a perfect example of that!  The fabulous Jesi Haack was at it again and outdid herself with creative touches throughout the event that pulled through the passion and personality of her clients.   The main color scheme for their wedding was black, white, and apple green and we definitely had a lot of fun with it!  The fabulous venue was the Red Horse Barn and the wonderful rentals were from Classic Party Rentals!  Thanks to Matthew Morgan we have gorgeous images of the special day!  I think he captured the couple, Ryan & Danielle, perfectly!   Of course I had to throw in some of my photos as well since I am obsessed with my camera!

How cute is the set up that Jesi made for the name cards!  Danielle is a teacher so they used apples, alphabet cards, and yo yo’s!

As always Jesi made me a fantastic backdrop for my dessert display!  Danielle and Ryan wanted to go a little more rustic and homespun with the desserts so we did six individual cakes for them with different fillings and frostings so their guests could choose their favorite.  They wanted to offer their guests a variety of mini desserts too.  We used black cake stands, plates, and green liners to pull the color scheme through.

I normally am not a huge fan of cake toppers because they are usually boring and don’t have any personal touches to them, but I LOVED this one!  It added such a fun aspect to the dessert display…great find Danielle!

Sarah & Cezanne’s Wedding

Friday, July 24th, 2009

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!

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!
