Wedding Nouveau Magazine Feature

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

I am so happy to share these gorgeous photos from the recent new issue of Wedding Nouveau! I was asked to be a part of the shoot for their main spread in the magazine and once they sent me over the inspiration photos I was completely enthralled. The theme was Parisian Souk and Abby, from Style Me Pretty, who featured the shoot said it perfectly when she described it as, “Luxe, cultural, and overflowing with so much pretty!”  Picotte Weddings photographed the whole day and I have to say her photos are stunning!  You can check out all the other wonderful vendors who were apart of this fabulous shoot at the end of the post!

You can see the whole magazine if you click on this link…enjoy!

For the cake we did a mini two tier that was then able to fit inside this amazing lantern…it was the centerpiece for the whole table and I loved how it turned out!

I wanted the cake to look rich in color and design, but also have vibrant pops of color too!  The turquoise, coral, and gold were such a lovely combo together that is makes me want to design more cakes with this color scheme!

I love seeing my flea market finds put to good use…we brought along our coral color bowl and it was the perfect addition to the shoot if I do say so myself!

Desert Elopement Photo Shoot

Monday, April 16th, 2012

Well you if frequent wedding blogs a lot you most likely saw the lovely post that Style Me Pretty did on this gorgeous shoot I got to be a part of last Friday!  Abby called the shoot “Vintage Desert Chic” and I quite like the name she gave it!  Megan Hartley, who took all the beautiful photos, asked me to be a part of the shoot and I jumped at the chance.  The inspiration board that Whitney, from Whit Mitt Design & Events, had come up with was breathtaking and I knew the shoot would be gorgeous!  I actually went to school with both of these ladies and I even got to do the desserts for Whitney’s lovely wedding!  She had now gone into the wedding business as well and I think she has quite the talent for it!

For the cake I wanted to veer off of the traditional white wedding cake and do a subtle taupe color for the base.  Then we accented the cake with a sugar succulent and some tiny dogwood flowers.  For the topper I had Kyong make a ball of yarn and then a tiny spool as well with the bride & groom’s initials etched on it!  We also crimped the top of each tier to give it some texture and then wrapped some edible yarn around the base tier.

Since it was a smaller size cake I thought it would be fun to do some cupcakes as well and we accented them with tiny sugar flowers too!

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!

Rustic Dream Wedding

Monday, December 20th, 2010

I am so excited to share these gorgeous photos with you from Wildflowers Photography!  When I saw them for the first time I was completely in love with every detail from this wedding.  Hayley and I both happen to know the bride, Whitney, from high school so it was such a joy to get to be a part of her wedding day!  I think they designed every aspect of this wedding brilliantly and I hope you enjoy looking at the photos as much as I do!

The Ace Hotel

Wednesday, October 6th, 2010

I had the pleasure of being a guest at the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs this last summer for my good friend’s Molly & Donovan’s wedding at the O’Donnell Golf Club!  The whole weekend was tons of fun and a weekend that I’ll remember for a long time!  My husband was in the wedding and my good girlfriend’s Ashlyn and Heather from Carter & Cook Event Co did the wedding planning and design.  The lovely Windy Dougall shot the gorgeous photos and The Floral Lab did an amazing job with the flowers!  I was especially in love with Molly’s bouquet!  This wedding was lucky enough to be featured on Style Me Pretty today as well, so make sure and check it out to see all the fun details!

French Inspired Photo Shoot

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

I recently had the pleasure of working with Joy de Vivre, Florette Designs, & Michael & Anna Costa on a French inspired photo shoot that was featured on Style Me Pretty!  I was blown away when I saw the gorgeous photos and really loved how it all turned out!  It was great working with such talented vendors & I thought they did an amazing job.

For the wedding cake I was really inspired by a wedding dress that was completely covered in white lace & doilies with an underlying color.  I knew someday I wanted to recreate it in cake and this was the perfect opportunity.  We covered the base of the cake in a light peach color and then tediously cut out individual fondant lace pieces that were added to the cake.  It was definitely a labor of love, but I have to say I loved the finish product.
