The Magical Miyamoto Matrimony

June was a very busy month for us. The weekend before Annie and Eric's wedding, who are our current Featured Wedding couple on cakelava.com , Rick designed and made a wedding cake we had on our books since Spring of 2008 which we were both excited and nervous about designing. Excited because the cake was for renowned Hawaii wedding photographer Dave Miyamoto of Dave Miyamoto & Company and his fiancee Michelle, and through our working together over the years we had grown to really respect Dave's work as well as their friendship and were truly honored when Dave and Michelle asked us if we would make their cake. Nervous because the cake was for renowned Hawaii wedding photographer Dave Miyamoto ... whose work, but more importantly whose face is known by everyone in the industry here and whose cake would include custom handcrafted figures of Dave and Michelle. Not to mention, their wedding vendors, many of which would be present at the wedding included photographer Geralyn from Hokuli'i Images, Debbie Hemingway of Designs by Hemingway, Ginniberries for catering, Susan O'Donnell of Aloha Wedding Planners , and The Bayer Estate, plus the presence of 2 well-known local magazines, and let's just say that this cake would be on stage and it.better.look.good. No pressure of course! Oh yes, and we also attended the wedding as their guests which meant most of the night we were sitting not too far away from Rick's cake.
It all worked out beautifully! The wedding was absolutely gorgeous and will be next month's Featured Wedding on cakelava.com. It was a magical night and I don't think there was a dry eye in the place. Their sculpted shipwreck inspired wedding cake was a huge hit amongst the guests and most importantly, the couple loved their cake! Rick designed the cake to include some of their interests like Paddle surfing and their adorable dog Nacho. They selected our Banana Nutella and Peanut Butter Fudgey flavors for the cake, and we witnessed quite the cake cutting. To see more of the magical Miyamoto matrimony, look for our Sneak Peek to their Featured Wedding coming next month.
Congratulations to the Miyamotos!!
more to come soon. Aloha, til next time!
