We met with Leslie and Arnold last Fall to design their wedding cake. We knew shortly after we started talking about their wedding colors and design style that their cake was going to be flamboyant and fun! One of their wedding colors was pewter, which is somewhat unusual, and obviously one of the bride's favorite colors because she was wearing a pewter colored shirt and carried a pewter handbag, and when we looked down, her shoes were also pewter. We knew pewter would definitely be included in the cake! Besides the colors midnight blue, pewter, and splashes of pink, and a romantic floral accent, the rest she left up to Rick's imagination.
For Leslie and Arnold, Rick designed a very tall bottom tier with dramatic edges and two smaller top tiers in a rounded shape. A large handcrafted pink peony with stylized curvy pewter leaves was placed on the cake, adding a romantic flair to the design, along with a floral piped pattern on the bottom tier. Rick chose to do a wavy cake board to work with the shapes of the cake and accented the board with both fluid and sharp design accents. We love the way the cake looked and how all the different components came together -- fun, modern and romantic, all in one! Their wedding took place on the gorgeous grounds of the JW Marriott Ihilani resort in Ko Olina, in the Hokulani Ballroom, one of the prettiest on site. Many heads turned when we carried their wedding cake in and placed it on the pewter linen, amongst the pretty pink flowers and blue linen on the head table. It looked right at home! Congratulations to Leslie and Arnold!
