Calamigos Ranch Wedding

WOW!  Who loves Tree Stumps?
Jodi & Steve :)

I love when a bride comes to me with a vision of her wedding and I get to add to that vision.  When I met with Jodi and she told me of using tree stumps for her flower displays and the beautiful trees at the ceremony, I jumped at the chance to incorporate them into the design of the cake..... amazingly she thought it was a great idea!

Calamigos Ranch, nestled in the Santa Monica Mountains, just a short drive from the Pacific Ocean is such a wonderful place to hold your wedding and reception.  With five areas to have your wedding, there is something for everyone.

Jodi & Steve's cake fit right in with the tree stump theme of there wedding.  Oh, I love these fun cakes!

Note from the bride:
"Lori took her time with me, designing our cake to fit my vision. Finding which flavor to pick was nearly impossible, because they're all good!  The cake looked amazing and was a true point of interest. Everyone complimented on the cake!
I would recommend Pastries by Vreeke to anyone!" ...... Jodi
The girls from Floral Fields did a great job on the centerpieces, creating trees to hold the beautiful flowers

Adding a bit of bling in the trees creates even more elegance!

A Ferris wheel adds to the fun!

Add a foto booth and the excitement continues........

Top it off with a Candy Buffet by Candy By Vreeke

The flower girl's in heaven!

Congratulations to Jody & Steve!

Spanish Hills Country Club Wedding

Spanish Hills Country Club Baseball themed wedding!

What a fun couple Jadey & Joe were. I knew from the moment I met them that their wedding and cake was going to be fun.

The cake was themed after Wrigley Stadium in Chicago, one of the couples favorite places!

Love the Baseball themed cake topper!

The Candy Buffet added fun for all the guests.  There was even foil covered chocolate balls to look like baseballs.

A custom sign was made just for the newlyweds to look like the sign at Wrigley Field.

The dining room at Spanish Hills Country Club looked so pretty with just a touch of pink

These Buds a Blooming creating such beautiful centerpieces to tie everything together.

Congratulations to Jadey & Joe!
