Back to Basics: Wedding Cake

Wedding dessert trends are all over the board these days. Anything goes. That's what we tell the bride who wants to do pie instead of cake, small cakes instead of one large, and the ever so fabulous dessert bar with homemade treats.

However we're finding it refreshing when a bride gets 'back to the basics', and chooses a wedding cake. "Just ONE wedding cake?!" you might ask? Yep, just one. One large and beautiful wedding cake.

We're getting back to the basics today with the traditional wedding cake. And if you notice...singular wedding cakes can be fun too. The shape, size and design of your cake can be creative, and even be a show stopper!

Jessica Claire Styled Workshop: Peek.

Two weeks ago we had the privilege of styling one of Jessica Claire's photography workshops in Orange County. As always, it was such a fun process and we were able to pull together a dream team of vendors to pull off our summertime shoot.

Here is just a peek at two photos from the shoot, and a little inspiration board we went off of.

[For the life of me, I cannot figure out where several of the inspiration photos came from, so if it's yours, please do let me know!]

Yep, those 'Sex and the City' shoe clips are pretty hot right? Thanks to the ultra hip accessory designer Rachel Larriane, our bride was totally decked out.

More of the summertime shoot coming really soon!

Aren't these train ones adorable? Such a great backdrop!

I wanted to share one more little piece of their wedding....the ADORABLE custom made invitations by Dear Darling! We're pleased to introduce you to the mastermind behind these, Suzy Lee.
