Carly and Matthew - A Celebration in Pink and Green

When Dave Miyamoto sent us these images of Carly and Matthew's wedding we were instantly smitten. His lovely images not only show Dave's talent for capturing people's smiles and spirit, they show a couple madly in love with each other, and that is pretty darn sexy. Since we met Carly and Matthew a year ago when they ordered their wedding cake from us, we have become "fans" of theirs. They have been a total delight to work with, are very enthused about anything we make for them (including birthday cupcakes, birthday cake, and a wedding cake), and we found out are also Modest Mouse fans, an added bonus.
For their wedding, Carly and Matthew hired some incredible vendors, including Mona Hirata, of Weddings By Grace & Mona, Debbie Hemingway of Designs by Hemingway for the beautiful pink and ivory florals and Dave Miyamoto to document their special day. Vows were exchanged at the Hale Koa Hotel, a military hotel in Waikiki, where the reception also took place. I love the combination of a more formal, military attired ceremony with the playfulness of the pink and green themed reception. Bright pink and green linens were placed on the tables, and complemented the flowers, favors, and even some of the cuisine, including their wedding cake.
Carly and Matthew gave us plenty of artistic leeway when designing their cake. Their requests were funky, pink and green and white, and swirls, so Rick worked his magic and the result is below. For their cake flavors, they chose Guava Lava, a completely pink cake, which couldn't be more fitting for this wedding, and our Hot Fudge Sundae, a nice combination.
Rick was filmed by KITV news on August 7, 2008, while he was working on Carly and Matthew's cake. To see the making of their cake in action, click here.
We wish Carly and Matthew many years of happiness as husband and wife, and Carly, we'll see you this weekend for your birthday cake!
