Sweet Inspiration | Wedding Cakes Remixed

By, March 30, 2016

The wedding cake is a worldwide tradition that spans across many cultures. Starting with a delicious blank canvas, skilled bakeries and caterers use craftsmanship and a bit of magic to create tantalizing works of art. We are always impressed when the wedding cake is specific and personalized to the couple, or when it ties in expertly with the wedding theme. The artistry involved never ceases to amaze.

For a delicious serving of inspiration, we decided to remix some of our favorite photos from throughout the years with cake styles we love. Sweet!

Classic Wedding Couple and Gold Cake at US Grant

There are a variety of ways to match your cake to the overall theme of the day. For example, a sleek downtown wedding may call for a minimal, modern cake design with understated accents. At a more colorful wedding, the cake style may be more vibrant, such as the example below by Crimson Cake.

This romantic cake (below) by the Fairmont Grand Del Mar left us stunned. With its beautiful, ruffled ombre of chocolate-to-vanilla frosting, it is a visual treat! Throw a sexy vintage Corvette into the mix, and you’re in for one glamorous evening!

We love how the geometric lines of Christy and Sterling’s venue, Vin De Syrah, juxtaposed with this cake (below) by 24 Carrots Catering and Events. The cake’s minimal sleekness, topped off with a burst of ruffles, is the perfect counterbalance to this venue’s marble interior.

At a themed or exotic wedding, a touch of the environment helps to immerse guests in the experience. For example, when we laid eyes on these cakes by Temecula Creek Inn (above) and Sweet Cheeks Baking (below) we instantly fell in love with their incorporation of the natural surroundings.

These cakes by Twiggs Bakery (above) and Twin Oaks Garden Estate (below) added a touch of vibrance to their surroundings.

Juliette & Sean Get Hitched at The Crosby Club

By, January 21, 2014

The Crosby Club is located in the heart of Rancho Santa Fe, just 20 miles north of San Diego. It is a breathtaking venue, with features including the grand Clubhouse, lush golf course and panoramic views of the surrounding hills. Check out Juliette & Sean’s recent Crosby Club wedding, which was full of beauty, elegance, and a little bit of attitude.


Juliette donned a stunning, delicate lace overlay gown from Mon Amie Bridal Salon. Simply gorgeous!


Juliette & Sean were married in front of The Crosby Club’s overgrown arches in the outdoor courtyard, with guests seated in white chiavari chairs. The setting was magnificent, with perfectly sunny weather, and elegant cream floral arrangements lining the aisle.

The ceremony began when Juliette’s father escorted her down the scrolled petal aisle, ready to give her away under the California rays.


After the ceremony, guests filtered inside the ballroom for good food, great company and music that lasted til the wee hours of the night. And you know the rest… Juliette & Sean lived happily ever after :)
