A Beautiful Vow Renewal

We wanted to start this week off revelling in LOVE! Very recently we helped our couple celebrate their 10th wedding anniversary with a vow renewal ceremony and two cakes designed to honor the special occasion. You wouldn't know by looking at this lovely couple and how smitten they are with each other that this wasn't a wedding ceremony. These two lovebirds seemed as lost in the moment of the ceremony and each other as any of our wedding couples, and were just as romantic. The celebration took place at the Oasis World Estates "Oceanfront Oasis" home, owned by (supermodel) Kathy Ireland. We've worked at this location before and the home is a beautiful oceanfront retreat. The important components were there. Our client is a photographer by trade and selecting a photographer to capture her special day was of utmost importance. She chose world-class photographer, Stefanie Riedel of Absolutely Loved, which we thought was a perfect match once we met her and her husband. Stefanie is one of the most romantic photographers we know and we fall in love with her images each time we see them. See for yourself with these Absolutely bee-u-tiful shots taken of the couple and their son, below, and visit Stefanie's website to see her incredible portfolio!
One of the most touching aspects of this vow renewal aside from how obviously in love this couple is, is the inclusion of their son, which is why the second cake was ordered. Their main cake was a handcrafted cherry blossom design which was lovely. The cake intended to honor them as a family had writing all over it which included "Mommy", "Daddy" and "Anson" and words such as "family" "love" and "forever". So sweet! Rick designed the cake to match the colors of their cherry blossom cake and even put a couple blossoms on it.
All our best to our wonderful couple. We hope to see them in another 10 years!
and next up, a Super cake for the kids. See Why tomorrow ...
