My first Photo Shoot cake. :O

Well ladies and gentlemen, I have had my FIRST EVER wedding cake photo shoot.. OK, so it was actually a Styled Photo Shoot for Veluz wedding gowns but my cake was totally part of it.. ;)

A few months back I was contacted by Jen from Ever After Bridal to see about making a wedding cake for her shoot and I was blown away of course!  Even more so when she told me she found me on Wedding Wire.  See,  I hadn't updated my Wedding Wire account in like

A YEAR!

I couldn't believe she actually contacted me after seeing that.. Anyhow, lucky me, she did.

Her vision was amazing and she put it all together beautifully.  Such a sweet lady with an amazing eye for detail and beauty.  Seriously, if you are a bride to be, you owe it to yourself to try these Veluz gowns… they are just STUNNING!

Here are some Work In Progress shots of this cake, which took a really long time to make by the way.

The first peony is done for this cake… just waiting for a little dusting action...

Some more flowers… and there were a bunch more not pictured…  I mixed gum paste flowers in with wafer paper flowers.

So lots of flowers as you can see….

Some ruffles but otherwise, lots of nakedness…  ready to get fancied up...

Here she is in all her glory!  All dressed up and styled with a Pro Photographer working her magic.  Stefy Hilmer was not only an amazing photographer while we were shooting, she made me super calm and comfy.  I imagine she has this effect on all her clients too.  

And then it only gets better!  After all this work and planning that Jen and her team did (meaning all of us ;) )..  We got picked up by none other than Wedding Chicks!!!!!!  I can't even tell you the THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of subscribers and fans they have. 

AND THEN! Wedding Chicks actually reached out to me and asked me to be a vendor in the Wedding Chicks family… By the way, they handpick their vendors… not everyone is asked.  I was FLOORED!!!!  And that was a resounding YES that Lauren from WC heard!

Thanks to Jen at Ever After Bridal for trusting me with such an important shoot for Veluz gowns here in the United States and thanks to Stefy at Stefy Hilmer Photography for taking such awesome photographs of what has become the cake I'm proudest of.
