Normally if you told us we'd have to leave Las Vegas for another location, we'd say that the location better be good, but on Saturday we had absolutely no problem continuing our journey to ... beautiful, serene, Lanikai, Oahu. From our studio, Lanikai, an upscale suburb of Kailua, is very close. Not much of a trek at all. Once you get to Lanikai, which is right next to Kailua Beach, voted one of the "Best Beaches in the World" the pace of life slows down, you can smell the ocean, and you think to yourself "pretty, pretty, pretty!". Our third delivery of the night was for another wedding, Joey and Greg who were married at the exclusive Paul Mitchell Estate in Lanikai. We always enjoy working at the Paul Mitchell Estate because it's very lush, incredibly beautiful and has the most amazing views of the Mokulua Islands. We arrived at the estate delivering two cakes for Joey and her groom Greg and were part of a team of vendors we work with regularly including Chrissy Lambert Photography, Yvonne Design, and Cater to Me. For their wedding cake, Joey and Greg chose an orange color off-set squares design with seashells in our "Broke da Mouth" and Kona Toffee Crunch flavors. They were steps away from the ocean and had a beach theme so it was a perfect match!
What Greg didn't know prior to his wedding day was that Joey had hired us to also make him a red 1968 Shelby GT-350 convertible (with the top up) Mustang groom's cake, which she chose our Local Kine Special flavor. I'm guessing he was probably so surprised and blown away by her thoughtfulness, and we had a great time making it too!
Joey and Greg, you two were great to work with and we wish you all the best!
one of the many spectacular views from the estate!
Next Stop after Paradise ... Waikiki! ... for another wedding
Aloha, til next time!
