A Dazzling Metallic Gold Cake for a Charming La Valencia Hotel Wedding

By, August 02, 2013

It’s almost the weekend, and we feel like celebrating with some cake! Not only does our Photo of the Week feature a delicious three-tiered cake, but it’s decorated in a metallic gold tone!

This posh masterpiece was created for Jessica and James’ wedding at La Valencia. The cake sat atop a shiny sequined tabletop, which added to the metallic shimmer of the presentation. The top tiers were also adorned with intricate fondant florals in the shape of the bride’s bouquet. Understandably, this cake was a dazzling focal point of the reception!



Day 5 of 12: Gold wedding color inspiration

By, December 23, 2011

Because it’s Friday, we thought we’d go big with GOLD!  Around the world,  gold is the color of riches, regality and extravagance! In every country, culture and market in the world, gold is likely to be the single most valuable and prized commodity. In fact, many of the beautiful cultural weddings we photograph integrate gold into the decor and jewelry. 

In color psychology, gold is generous and giving, compassionate and loving, and is associated with the sun, adding optimism and good cheer. Incorporating the color gold on your wedding day will add a sense of grandeur and warmth to the celebration, while illuminating and enhancing the things around it. Gold weddings, like ones we’ve photographed at The Grand Del Mar and the US Grant, tend to be sophisticated and fun, with a touch of tradition.

Let gold inspire your holiday weekend and represent your prosperity in the new year! Be sure to check in tomorrow, where we will feature the color of the day— PURPLE!
