Calamigos Movie Industry Wedding!

Luggage, Film Reels & Clapper Board Cake!

Weddings don't get more fun than this. I knew when I first talked to Nancy on the phone about her wedding plans, this was going to be a fantastic wedding cake to create. This couple are both in the movie industry, travel constantly, worked together on the TV show Charmed and had envisioned a cake to pull in all these elements. When we sat down for the consultation and I sketched out their cake, they had so much fun telling me all they do and all the places they traveled.

Note from the Bride:

Lori, Lori, Lori,You are amazing!! We loved the cake and we had so many people (in the industry) say that was the coolest wedding cake they have seen! Great job, we were very pleased and we have the top layer (round suitcase) in our freezer! Thank you for your beautiful work and gorgeous detail - it was a hit! And it tasted great...I ate the lemon/raspberry...yum! If we ever need a special cake again, we will be calling you!Respectfully yours,Nancy Hugghins :)

The cake stood approximately 3 1/2 feet tall and was definitely the centerpiece of the reception.
The vintage luggage had edible images of luggage tags from places they have traveled together.

The film reels, clapper board and movie masks were all made out of sugar. The pictures on the film reel were all shots that the bride had sent me and printed out on edible images.

The tables were all named with movie lingo on clapper boards and the place settings had baby Etchasketch's as favors.

The main ballroom of Calamigos looked beautiful with draping on the ceiling and the bright yellow flowers made the room look so cheerful!

This actor was also part of the wedding.

I couldn't resist taking a picture with him, he was just so cute all 7' of him.

Congratulations to the Nancy & David!!
