Marrying Italian, Estonian and English

Mary Lou and Brian were one of those couples that we worked with from afar. They reside on the East Coast and weren't coming to Hawaii prior to their wedding, which took place at the Bayer Estate last weekend. Since we had to rush off to another wedding immediately after theirs, we didn't have a chance to meet them in person, which is always a little sad because after getting to know our brides over the months we work with them, I look forward to meeting them. Thank goodness for our photographers who come to our rescue bringing images of the couple, so even if we can't meet them, at least we can put a face with a name (and a cake).
We are grateful to Russ Ramos and John Hook of Dave Miyamoto & Company who provided us these lovely images of Mary Lou and Brian's wedding.
For their wedding cake, the couple wanted to tie in their Italian (bride) and Estonian (groom) heritages, with their spoken English language and thought it would be fun to have words of what they love in the 3 languages written on the cake. Some of these meaningful items included: family, parents, friends, travel, mountains, laughter, beaches, photography, cooking, and many more. At the top of the cake we put a cluster of handcrafted orchids to tie in with the bride's bouquet. Our Lemon Pucker and Kona Toffee Crunch flavors were chosen for this intimate wedding. Congratulations, Mary Lou and Brian!
