Calamigos Music Themed Wedding

Calamigos Ranch Music Themed Wedding

This is by far the most amazing wedding I have been involved in.
Pastries By Vreeke not only created the wedding cake, Candy Buffet, Cookie Buffet, Succulent Centerpieces, invitations, and decor but also supplied coordination for the event by the wonderful Marylin.

TopsyTurvy Drum Set Cake

 Even Brielle was amazed by the cake!

The Candy Buffet

The Cookie Buffet

The Escort Cards
The holder was made of Drumsticks

All the Boutonnieres were made of succulents

Succulent Bouquets

The napkins were custom made to match the bridesmaids dressing by the Maid of Honor

Custom Signs were created for all areas of the wedding

The centerpieces were Manzanita with twinkling lights and hanging terrariums filled with succulents.

Quail Ranch Wedding

A family owned and operated avocado ranch located just outside of Los Angeles in Ventura County, in the city of Simi Valley.  A flourishing avocado orchard and a variety of citrus are planted alongside towering pines and majestic oak trees.  The estate home, the Ranch House, was built in 1933 

I was honored to create a wedding cake for such a wonderful location.

The head table, overlooking all the guests and venue

The reception area not only overlooks the grounds of Quail Ranch, but has a view of Simi Valley and Moorpark below.  The Regan Presidential Library is seen just to the west of the property.

Calamigos Ranch Wedding

Throughout all the years of creating Wedding Cakes,
my most creative cakes always seem to be delivered to
Calamigos Ranch

This one is no exception.
This one was designed around the bride and grooms hobbies, jobs, attire and love of fun!

The bottom tier was designed to look like the keys of a piano, the love of music and a reproduction of the grooms badge.

The middle tier has a Steam Punk look with the sugar gears and pocket watch complete with sugar chain

The second tier was designed to look like the brides corset

The top tier had the cutest topper that the bride and groom supplied.

Such a great display with a sweet Candy Buffet for all the guests to enjoy!

Note from the bride:
Thank you very much for the beautiful cake and candy buffet.
Everyone LOVED the cake and candy display.
All our guests were raving about it and some asked for your info so I passed it along.
Justin and I can not thank you enough for putting such a unique and beautiful cake together for us.
It was absolutely stunning and delicious!  What we loved the most was how detailed the cake was and how much you implemented both of our personalities into the cake.  
So cool! :)

Christine & Justin!

It couldn't have been a more perfect day.  The sun was shining thru and the weather was perfect after some showers the day before.  

The reception was held in the Reagan Room Ballroom with a wonderful view of the ocean

Perfect setting!

Just in case the sun was to bright, sunglasses were one hand for all the guests

These Hashtag apps are such a cute idea for all the guests to take pictures of the special day!

Everything had a tiny touch of pink!

Even the frames for the table numbers had a touch of pink!
