With a new year comes new changes. This year’s shake up at I Do! Wedding Cakes has been dedicated to customer experience. As we inch closer to the start to 2015’s wedding season, we are trying to navigate our way through consultation season with our wits still in tact.
We pride ourselves on our customer service, and we have been blessed with really NICE couples who make my job easy. So easy that I look forward to opening the doors on the weekends.
One of the hottest trends emerging for 2014 wedding cakes is hand painted floral motifs on wedding cakes. This romantic water colour effect can be seen everywhere from invites, program cards, linens and bridesmaids dresses. We took inspiration from these hand painted invitations created by Heart Felt by Bri and recreated the floral motif on our new addition to our I Do! Collection. Appropriately rustic and whimsical, our design can be used for a high tea bridal shower or outdoor tented reception. For a more modern twist, use navy and gold as trim.

This week, we’d like to introduce our first guest blogger, Jennifer Campione-Fortino. Jennifer is a past I Do! bride whose wedding has come and gone. When we first met Jennifer and Ezio, Tuan and I noticed how laid back and easygoing they were. They seemed to handle everything in strides and made it so easy for us to do our thing! Jennifer is truly a classic beauty inside and out and we’re so glad she’s giving us a little insight to how the big day unfolded.
Take it away Jennifer!
It is often thought that planning a wedding is a stressful time for any couple; but truthfully, my husband and I had a blast! We made our journey to the aisle official with a few vintage themed engagement photos (thanks to our good friend, Robert Mauriell), which became the inspiration for our entire wedding. From the invitations to the entertainment, and even to my Ines Di Santo custom-made dress, we recreated an era that we never even belonged to.
Our ‘vintage Hollywood cinema’ themed wedding began as our guests entered the hall on a red carpet that led up to a lady on stilts, who served each of them our specialty cocktail of the evening. Our hall was decorated with white flowers, linens that sparkled, black feathers, and pearls in order to create a true vintage and somewhat Gatsby-like atmosphere.
With the launch of our new website and 2014’s wedding season underway, I wanted to take the time to introduce ourselves, Tuan and I, to our new and returning users! The purpose of our blog is to share with you our our ups and downs as we journey through the wedding season. Please feel free to leave us your thoughts and we hope to amuse, inform and entertain you.
