Dreamy Wedding in Newport Harbor

Wednesday, June 15th, 2011

This past weekend I was at Barnes & Noble bookstore and I happened to pick up The Knot Southern California Magazine.  As I went to look through it I was pleasantly surprised to see that we were featured not one, but FOUR times!!!  To say I was thrilled is an understatement!  We are so lucky to work with such amazing planners, photographers, florists, etc and because of them I am blessed to get in these kind of features!  Leila from Be Inspired PR got us this amazing feature below and I have to say a big THANK YOU to her!

This wedding was shot by the lovely Meg Perotti and the wonderful Courtney, from Joyful Weddings and Events, pulled the whole gorgeous day off!  I get to work with Carissa, from JL Designs, quite a bit and I have to say that this might be one of my favorite weddings she has done…the florals are just breathtaking!  Courtney took the concept of a “beach wedding” to a whole new level and I loved how it all turned out!

For the cakes we did a rustic trio of cakes and I have to say I just love this simple homespun look!  We accented them with fresh peonies and with the florals from Carissa and burlap backdrop it was a match made in Heaven.

I’m still trying to catch up on blog posting some cakes that we had the pleasure of making last year!  I have been so blessed to have such an amazing team behind me this past year and am excited as we go into this next year full of new couples, new cakes, and lots of fun times!

First up is a cake that I was so excited to work on!  This cake definitely has the most sugar flowers we’ve ever done before and I loved it.  We wanted it to be romantic and elegant and I think we did it!

This next cake was a challenge that I was up to.  The bride worked for the Girl Scout Company and wanted to implement the cookies onto the main wedding cake and 4 small side cakes as well.  I painted the cookies with edible gold paint and then added some chocolate jewels & bottoms too.  I really was thrilled with how it all turned out!

This black and white cake below is one that Kyong and I dreamed up.  I love having Kyong hand paint on our cakes so we came up with a look that we liked and let her go to town.  We accented it with a huge white sugar rose on top and it was finished!

Not all cakes are elegant & girlie, this next cake is full of modern fun with a whimsical flair.  We used hand cut fondant pieces and then painted on the cake as well.  The shape is unique too because instead of traditional rounds the bride wanted hexagon shapes.

Next up we did a traditional elegant wedding cake with a vintage twist.  We did brush embroidery on two of the tiers, mimicked the brides jeweled band on her wedding dress for one tier, and then lastly added a single blush pink garden rose to the bottom tier.

I love the look of bright colors, textures, and multiple cakes when done in the right way and I think we managed to pull it off with this next wedding.  Thanks to Jasmine Star for the photo below!

And lastly, normally draping isn’t my look, but I really did like this traditional style cake that we created.  I think the monochromatic look of it makes it look a little modern, but still very elegant and traditional.
