This shoot was inspired by the gorgeous Pantone color of the year, marsala. I chose to pair it with blush pink, gold, and ivory to keep it soft and feminine. I decided to shoot at Brazos Bend Park because of its beautiful Spanish moss trees. The weather was perfect that day after many days (weeks!) of rain. That day the sun finally made its appearance for a few glorious hours, and then right after we were done shooting, it started to rain again!
On the table I used a mixture of vintage and modern items, like the marsala colored vintage glasses I inherited from my mother-in-law, who inherited them from her own mother-in-law.
I knew those would be fabulous one day!
The trio of cakes were a showcase of the latest trends in wedding cakes. The large cake had extra tall tiers, two of them covered in fondant and edible wafer paper, with a gold trim. The smaller matching cake had a gold top tier, and the bottom tier is made of hand cut edible wafer paper “petals”. Of course I also had to have a red velvet naked cake, my signature cake! This naked cake is special because not only does it have beautiful cascading flowers, but it also has edible gold leaf on the front.
The pyramid and gem shaped chocolates also have gold leaf on top and are very delicious and super trendy right now.
