A Decadent Wedding Dessert Table by Ditzie Cakes

By, March 19, 2013

Recently, I had the opportunity to work with April and Brad, who were married at the Fairbanks Rancho Country Club in Rancho Santa Fe. What a delight it was to work with such a sweet couple!

Staying within their purple and ivory color scheme, and butterfly theme, I created a beautiful dessert table that guests were sure to remember.


At the country club, the dining room was glowing with elegant gold chandeliers, as well as vibrant up-lights in purple tones. We designed the dessert table to tie in with the look and feel of the day, and ensured that the table was stocked with April and Brad’s favorite treats.


The dessert menu was created around April and Brad’s other loves: Red Velvet, Nutter Butters, Coconut Lime and their must-have, Oreo Cookie! We also added our Ditzie Cakes signatures: Truffle Pops, Ditzie Choco-Spoons, and a Milk Shot Bar. At the center was a beautiful single-tier Oreo Cookie cake, which the bride and groom sliced into for tradition!


To complete this charming display, the table was set with old vintage wine crates, amber bottles with fresh mauve roses, and a chalkboard!


The chalkboard was a fun way to describe what was on the menu. The table towered with playfulness and delicious desserts!


I also designed personalized tags to wrap 165 Truffle Pop Favors, which were handed out to April and Brad’s guests towards the end of the evening. To match the style, I created a personalized cake topper banner!


Having a display of so many desserts definitely calls for a Milk Shot Bar. Even the little ones kept coming back!


Everything was so much fun, and a labor of love to create for this amazing couple! My favorite part was seeing how excited and happy April and Brad were on their wedding day. Hearing that my work was everything they had hoped for was truly the best reward. I thank April and Brad for making this wedding exciting for me as well! Cheers to the happy couple!

Day 6 of 12: Purple wedding color inspiration

By, December 24, 2011

Today is all about the color purple! Purple is one of the most popular wedding colors we’ve seen in 2011, perhaps because of its cool and warm attributes that work all year round.  Purple evokes romance and creativity, and combines the calming feeling of blue with the energy of red. Historically, purple is a symbol of royalty, wisdom and dignity – which is fitting for the bride and groom on their big day!

The boldness and vibrancy of purple can add a lush look to wedding photographs. Scroll down to see how purple can be incorporated into wedding details, such as bridal shoes, signage and jewel tone uplighting to create the mood at the reception!  

We’ll be here tomorrow on Christmas morning to bring you our next color of the season – RED!

San Diego Wedding Photographers show the Twelve Days of Color to highlight Wedding Colors

At True Photography, we love color!  To get in the holiday spirit, we’re counting down the Twelve Days of Color, where we will feature a different color on our blog each day! 

In all of our photos, our process is to bring out as much color as possible, while keeping skin tones natural. We adjust every single image by hand, maximizing the vibrancy but always making sure the scene feels real. We use our own color techniques and never mess with color filters, which can become gimmicky over time. With our signature technique, your wedding images will look amazing now and in 50 years.

Our first featured color is Green!
