Westlake Village Inn Wedding

Westlake Village Inn
September 18, 2010

Yet another wonderful cake delivered to Westlake Village Inn. It seems like I am there every weekend. I love delivering here, it's so close to my bakery and the staff is so friendly. It really is such a pleasure to be able to supply wedding cake for this venue.
Thank you Jeannie and the entire staff at WVI.

This cake was a simple fondant cake with brown ribbon around each tier. Fresh flowers were supplied by Belle of the Ball Designs, who is always a pleasure to work with. It's so nice when you become friends with all the vendors work with often.
Did I mention the wonderful Jason of Elegant Event Entertainment was the DJ for this reception? He and his staff are more vendors which I consider friends and always a joy to see!

Note from the bride:
I had the hardest time deciding on first whether to do a groom's cake, and second what to do. Once I realized that Mark was hoping to get a groom's cake, that made the first decision easy. The cake itself was inspired by Mark's commitment to his personal health and his love of coconut water to hydrate/nourish his body. Anyone who knows Mark well, knows he loves his coconut water. One day Mark realized that our bar wasn't going to have coconut water, so he was concerned that at the wedding he wouldn't get any after drinking all night. He was so surprised to see that Lori created a coconut with his favorite coconut water inside! It was absolutely perfect and Mark was able to get his coconut water right out of the middle of the cake with a straw! To top it off, it was a carrot cake (Mark's favorite).
Thank you Lori for your creativity!!!

This grooms cake was so fun to create. The groom drinks ZICO brand coconut water every night and his lovely bride wanted to surprise him with a coconut cake filled with ZICO water. In the middle of this cake is a bottle of ZICO with a straw for him to drink from during the reception.

Belle of the Ball designs created these beautiful floral centerpieces on beautiful Victorian iron stands. It's amazing what flowers can do to a room!

Westlake Village Inn is really a beautiful venue to have a wedding. Entering the reception room, you are greeted by a roaring marble fireplace and sparkling crystal chandeliers hang from the ceiling.

Congratulations to Amber and Mark!
