Feature #2 on Grace Ormonde Wedding Style!

Monday, October 28th, 2013

Grace Ormonde Wedding Style (GO) is the epitome of high-class.  When it comes to wedding magazines and an online showcase of weddings, GO is a pretty big deal.  Earlier this month we told you about a wedding we took part in that was showcased by the site, and now just a few weeks later, we are thrilled to announce yet another has been featured!

Sweet Cheeks Baking Wedding Cake

Blake and Nicole have an adorable story  Nicole “met” Blake while browsing through her girlfriend’s Match.com account.  She happened upon Blake’s picture and immediately thought, “wow… he’s so cute!”   In fact, Blake had no idea that his friends had even created an account for him, so you can imagine his surprise when Nicole sent him a message asking to set up a date!  Once they met, though, the connection was immediate.   Ever since, they have not spent a day apart from one another.

Their wedding was soft and elegant, with pinks and whites being their main wedding colors.  The couple loves the sea, so we made a cake that incorporated sea-inspired elements of starfish and coral.  The cake was simple, yet the design elements fit perfectly with the pastel color scheme that was their wedding.

It was a gorgeous wedding in Carlsbad, and we were honored to be a part of an amazing day.  We are also especially honored to be among the other amazing wedding vendors that made Blake + Nicole’s wedding worthy of Grace Ormonde!

Bringing the Sea to the Wedding

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

The wedding location may have been Inland San Diego (Rancho Bernardo Inn), but the wedding cake was all about the sea.   Nature-loving/ocean-loving couple, Sharon & Tim King, chose to have a seaside-themed wedding cake for their big day, and we could not have been more thrilled about how the cake turned out!

Seaside Wedding Cake

Made of citrus with passion fruit curd & raspberry preserves, Italian butter cream with smoothed/beveled edges, and chocolate with white chocolate-raspberry mousse & Belgian chocolate ganache, the cake ingredients may sound complex, but really, they were perfectly paired!  That combination of flavors is a personal favorite of mine, in fact.

Special thanks to the amazing photographs by San Diego photographer, Resolusean (Sean Capshaw), the seaside cake and the happy memories from the cake cutting were perfectly captured.

 Sharon + Tim were a super fun couple to work with, and their lovely relaxed nature & great sense of humor made this experience another positive one for the books!
