Love in Operatic Blues
Our couple Marjorie and Quinn who were married earlier this month, live the kind of romantic, jet-setting life many of us dream about. They are professional opera singers, who make their living making other people happy. During our design process, Marjorie and Quinn were apart much of the time, she in the States and him in Italy -- I know, poor thing, right? When we met with Quinn shortly before the wedding when he and his sister came in to choose their flavors, I couldn't help but be completely enamored of their lifestyle. Flying all over the world as an opera singer, getting paid to travel, what could be better than that? Like any career, it's a lot of hard work and flying from country to country performing can take a toll, he said. He seemed ready for a break and excited to get married to his lovely bride Marjorie, and we were excited for them and had a BEAUTIFUL cake designed. The wedding took place at an exquisite home on Round Top Drive, with a view of what felt like the entire island. They had an Italian themed wedding and hired Chef Donato Loperfido of Sapori Enoteca/Birreria and for dessert they served their wedding cake in our Strawberries Chantilly, Bananarama and Totally Turtle flavors.
Rick designed Marjorie and Quinn a 5-tier light blue color wedding cake, with grey accents and handcrafted blue flowers. It was incredibly striking in person, so much that we asked photographer Stephen Ludwig if he could photograph this cake before the event since we were already working with him on a photo shoot that weekend. What an amazing photo, and it so beautifully captures the color and detail of the cake. We wish Marjorie and Quinn all the best and hope they will make beautiful music together for many years to come!
Aloha, 'til next time!
