A Glamourous Affair

Monday, September 12th, 2011

This next wedding is pure beauty!  The couple is gorgeous, the location is divine, and the vendors they picked for their wedding pulled out all the stops!  Emily Faulknor Photography captured this lovely San Diego wedding and I even got to partner and work with my best girlfriends Karrie & Elizabeth from Posh Paperie who did all the fabulous invitations and paper design!

For the desserts and cake we were really excited to create something amazing!  The client loved a previous backdrop that Jesi Haack Design had created for us, so she actually had her father recreate it and I think it turned out great!

I loved working on this new cake design that we did…it was bold, yet elegant!

It took me quite a lot of time to do so much detail on it, but the final product was definitely worth it!

Bride & Bloom Magazine

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Boy have I waited a long time to feature these photos!  I was lucky enough to be a part of this gorgeous shoot last year and we were so happy to finally see it get featured in Bride & Bloom Magazine!  The wonderful team behind the beautiful photos are Stephanie Williams who shot the day, Heavenly Blooms who did the amazing florals, and Posh Paperie who created the adorable paper goods!  I hope you enough this lovely Spring shoot as much as I did!

For the cake I decided to incorporate both round and petal tiers and I love the overall shape of the cake.  We used the lace pattern that Posh Paperie designed and printed it out on edible frosting sheets and then adhered it to the cake.  Finally we made a beautiful open sugar pink peony to accent the top of the cake.

Some other exciting news is happening this week!  Some of you might know that I had the great opportunity to film with Tori & Dean on their upcoming new wedding series “STORIbook Weddings“.  We filmed 3 out of the 8 episodes with them and the season starts this Wednesday @ 10pm on the Oxygen Network! I don’t know exactly what episode numbers we are on, but I would definitely tune in for the whole series as it should be a lot of wedding fun!

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!

Modern Photo Shoot

Thursday, November 18th, 2010

I absolutely love getting to do photo shoots with talented people and this shoot was definitely one of them!  I teamed up with my dear friends Courtney, from Joyful Weddings & Events, Carissa, from JL Designs, and Elizabeth & Karrie, from Posh Paperie for this amazing opportunity!  The fabulous wedding photographer, Jessica Claire, asked us to do a mock wedding set up for one of her photo workshops and I have to say that I think we went to town!  I absolutely love this modern, bold look for a wedding!  I thought it would be fun to start out with dessert photos for a chance, so here they are!

Christmas Time

Friday, December 25th, 2009

First of all thank you SO much for your sweet comments about my little niece Kimberly.  I appreciate your kind words more than you know.  Praise the Lord Kimberly is recovering from an almost deadly bout with pneumonia!  Right at this moment I am sitting in the hospital wishing she was able to be discharged already and in time for Christmas, but I guess we don’t always get what we want.  This Christmas season has probably been one of the most trying times for me…between Kimberly’s hospital stay and trying to keep up with a growing business it has been quite a lot to process.  I am so thankful for both, but sometimes life can be really hard…at least I have amazing friends, family, and staff to help me through everything.  I am still giving a little hope that Kimmy gets out Christmas morning (they are doing a final test to see if they can discharge her), but either way I am very blessed and will try to focus on that.

On another note, this past season I was able to collaborate with the lovely ladies of Posh Paperie and Carter & Cook.  I personally knew these ladies before we all went into the wedding biz and it is so fun now to be able to work with them and see them grow into such amazingly talented women.  This particular party was to showcase our holiday designs and was thrown in San Diego at WineStyles.  We had an absolute wonderful time and I think they photos show how talented these ladies really are!

San Diego Photo Shoot

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend!  Too much work left me blogless for the week, but I’m back to share a lot of fun photos with you.  Over the last few months I have had some amazing experiences with so many talented vendors in the wedding industry and I am so happy to share them with you!  This photo shoot was for a top San Diego wedding magazine and I was privileged enough to work with LaVonne from Adorations, who did all the floral designs, Rebecca Gaffney & Mia Saling from Red Letter Days, who designed the second shoot, Kelly Aull from Mint Weddings, was the event coordinator of the hawaiian themed shoot, and Karrie & Elizabeth from Posh Paperie who did the menus & notecards.  

The first tablescape was a hawaiian theme and I think it turned out lovely!  I decided to to mini cakes for the table and we wanted to match the invitations with the dessert so we printed the pattern on edible frosting sheets.  We then covered the mini cakes in fondant and wrapped the cake with the frosting sheets.  We piped mini white royal icing dots, added a yellow circle of fondant on top, and finished if off with yellow sugar plumerias.  LaVonne came up with the great idea to place the mini cakes in a gorgeous peony…love, love, loved it!  Everyone really came together and created a beautiful look!

Now onto the Spanish Flamenco shoot!  For this shoot we decided to do a black and white cake with red accents.  Sara made a gorgeous sugar red rose and then we made sugar pearls and jewels.  The tablescape was simply amazing and was larger than life! Posh Paperie did fabulous job with the menu cards too!
