Starfish, Seashells and Feathers

As far as we're concerned, this wedding had all the right components: A dream bride and groom to work with, a fun color palette and unusual textures mixed into the theme, a beautiful outdoor location and a savvy wedding coordinator to pull it all together with finesse. I remember vividly the weekend we made this cake. It was last month, during our busiest weekend, a day before we delivered the standing Incredible Hulk groom's and accompanying pink blinged out wedding cake, (which has yet to be revealed). It was a weekend of rushing around, from one event to another, with barely a moment to breathe. We drove up to the Bayer Estate in Aina Haina, and was immediately greeted with a smile by Laura Lewis of Parasol Events, the couple's wedding coordinator. We walked around to the ocean side of the home and it was as if our whole body exhaled. We were surrounded by bright, cheerful blues both in the wedding and the sparkling ocean in the background, vivid pinks and whites. There were flowers, and starfish, and feathers and shells. Lounges with pillows, tenting and a live fireshow demonstration for the guests. Then there was the couple. Our bride Heather was one of those easygoing dream brides every vendor wants to work with. She was enthusiastic, loved Rick's design and was excited about her three flavor choices: Strawberries Chantilly, Coconut Pineapple Chunk and Totally Turtle. Her beautiful seashell and starfish wedding cake was a bright blue with white and looked perfect with the matching decor!
Congratulations to our couple, and a big thanks to photographer Dave Miyamoto for providing us with these gorgeous images!
