Real Weddings ~ features we’re included in from over the web!

Tuesday, December 31st, 2013

As 2013 comes to an end, and 2014 is practically upon us, we’d like to pause and reflect on some of the events and/or weddings that we may not have blogged about.

We have the best jobs, truly, and to be able to create wedding/special event cakes for those in San Diego (getting married) is an honor.  In particular, we love weddings! And, we definitely love cake.  So naturally, making cakes for weddings is one of our passions!  That kinds of reads like a lame SAT question, but some of the weddings that we have been a part of have been anything but lame!

We try to feature as many of the events that Sweet Cheeks takes part in, but at times, it’s difficult.  At times, it may be easiest to rely on the posts of our friends and fellow wedding vendors!  So in this post we will mention a couple special weddings that sum up the success that 2013 was for us!

Del Mar Wedding

Manny and Nicki:

This adorable couple used San Diego as a destination wedding location.  Manny + Nicki are from Houston, Texas, and in this gorgeous wedding at L’Auberge in Del Mar, seaside style was the focus: think pastel colors, starfish details, and an outdoor setting with the sound of the wave crashing.  Visit the blogs of both the Floral Designer, Jennifer Cole Florals, and the Photographer, Archetype Studio, Inc., respectively, for amazing images

 

Liz + Alex:

Liz + Alex, Arizona-based, also used San Diego as a destination wedding location, yet for this adorable couple, they opted for the simplicity of the San Diego Rowing Club as their reception location.  Their wedding had sea-inspired elements, yet their colors were vibrant, and their details more DIY.  Yet, do not mistake DIY as less elegant.  This wedding was so well thought out and so beautifully decorate that Exquisite Weddings Magazine featured it on their blog, and that is no easy feat!

As Seen on Grace Ormonde Wedding Style…

Thursday, October 3rd, 2013

The wedding may have been months ago, but just recently, the lovely multicultural wedding of Braja Mandala and Gene Higa was featured on the ever so famous wedding site, Grace Ormonde Wedding Style.  Being that both the bride and groom are wedding photographers, the day was filled with extra special touches that reflected their elegant, black-tie taste.

The wedding took place in La Jolla, at the gorgeous Estancia La Jolla.  Gene, a Buddhist, and Braja, Hindu, worked together to find the perfect representation for their religions, and in the end, a Hindu priest customized their ceremony and integrated various traditions, and even some new ones.  Then, in honor of the Asian inspiration, the space was decorated with cherry blossoms, Buddha statues, and lots of candles.

The day was absolutely perfect, and we were so happy to be a part of this couple’s day.  This wedding was all about elegance, so the cake we made for this wedding was that too, elegant.
