The thought of having a runway couture fashion inspired wedding couldn’t excite me more. I jumped in to work with Erica of Erica O’Brien Cake Designs and Megan of Honey and Poppies who shared this fantastic concept wedding with me. The concept began with being inspired by Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2010 Collection and it was by far the perfect start. Florals and ruffles shined and were translated in the stationery, cake and of course the flowers.
The whole shoot couldn’t have been more beautiful. The colors were all pulled from the Spring 2010 collection. Vibrant oranges, deep black, luscious purples and greens. This theme is all about the details.
Look at the ruffles on the cake! I loved that. The stands were also made by florals so the cake looked completely surrounded by flowers and texture.
The kicker behind the whole project was that we were the models! Yup. Erica, Megan and I hit hair and make-up and showed face as the models on the shoot. It was fantastic!
This whole project couldn’t have been possible without all these helping hands.

Having the opportunity to work with a creative group of people takes what I do to a whole other level. I have been working with award-winning Wedding Stylist, Trini Randazzo of NOZZA Studio for several months now and when I was asked to be a part of this project, I couldn’t have been more thrilled. On the team was Deanne of Bella Fiore flowers, Erica of Erica O’Brien Cake Design, and Henry of Henry Chen Photography captured all the beauty.
The concept was great from the beginning. Taking the triad idea of a wedding being viewed as the bride’s wedding, their wedding and the groom’s wedding, and uniting these sometimes conflicting elements. For Simone & James event at the The Ebell Club in Long Beach, we wanted to kept elements that reflect the couple individually and together.
They both had their own cake, and one united cake. They both had an invitation, and one united one. Even the flowers reflected them individually and as a couple! I was thrilled to be a part of this collaboration. Read the full article here on Nonpareil Magazines site. A great online wedding magazine for the modern bride.
