Celebrating 100 posts with one of our favorite couples and Ceremony magazine

We’re proud to announce that this marks our 100th post since starting this blog last year, and we’re just as proud to share one of our absolute favorite weddings from 2011, which is featured in the 2012 edition of Ceremony magazine!

Maria & Dayton’s gorgeous wedding was truly one-of-a-kind. Its emphasis on family and friendship was evident throughout. Maria looked stunning in her mother’s vintage wedding gown, and guests added their handprints to artwork that now hangs in the happy couple’s home.

Designer Brad Austin dressed the space in timeless beauty with thousands of lavender roses and phaelanopsis orchids covering the historic altar and beautifully lit candelabra centerpieces, all complemented by a rich palate of greens and purples, from the linens to the deep purple lighting. Their ornate five-tiered cake designed and created by Cake Divas featured hundreds of hand crafted sugar petals that adorned the confection from top to bottom.

Photographer Todd Johnson captured the day perfectly, allowing us and Ceremony Magazine to bring you pictures of this amazing wedding.

Thank you to all of you, our readers, as well as all of our vendors, clients, and friends who have made the last hundred posts so much fun. Here’s to the next hundred and more!

Favorite Finds @ The Cream: Part One

Last night we had the pleasure of attending The Cream, a wedding showcase featuring the “raddest” crop of vendors in the industry, at the very fun Book Bindery in Culver City.

Among the rows of beautiful bridal eye candy a few vendors in particular stood out to us, including Superfine Bakery.

Andrea Boudewijn, owner and chef of Superfine is a true artist, creating cakes and confections inspired by fashion, architecture and nature. Her detailed sugar work is simply amazing — she can turn any client’s vision into a sweet reality. We can tell you firsthand, her cakes taste as good as they look! Superfine uses only the purest ingredients to create delectable flavors such as Champagne Raspberry Truffle and Fleur de sel Caramel. We tried the Pink Grapefruit cake and it was absolutely divine!

Below are a few photos we snapped at the event and some professional shots provided Andrea. For more information about Superfine Bakery, please visit their site and make an appointment to experience their cakes yourself!
