A Late August Seaside Wedding

This past week, I had the pleasure of making a cake for a lovely couple who are also dear friends. They were married at the Scripps Seaside Forum, a gorgeous new indoor/outdoor venue in La Jolla, California, with incredible ocean views. While early in the day it was quite hot and muggy, the evening could not have been any more beautiful, and the couple's ceremony was a warm and wonderful event.

The beautiful view:

And what we all enjoyed as the ceremony ended:

The bride and groom asked for a small cake to include alongside the caterer's table of mini desserts. Custom sugarpaste flowers included gardenias, green hydrangea and little white jasmine flowers and buds, all coordinated to go with the green, white and ivory color theme.

Here are some photos of the flowers in progress...

Many thanks to the bride and groom for letting me be a part of their beautiful day. What an amazing way to enjoy the last few days of summer!
