Navy and Pink Scottsdale Wedding – Featured on Inspired By This

February 14

What better way to celebrate love, on Valentine’s Day, than to share some of my favorite images from Tasha and Trevor’s wedding day, taken by the kind and talented Amy and Jordan Photography at one of their Workshops last fall.  All weddings are special but they don’t all include 16 photographers, a FOX 10 Phoenix news story as well as being published on Inspired By This!

Tasha, a Phoenix Suns Dancer, was proposed to by her now Husband Trevor during one of the half time shows and their story went viral!  When Amy and Jordan heard that Tasha and Trevor were planning on eloping at the courthouse, and they wouldn’t be getting any beautiful photos, Amy and Jordan started thinking.  One thing led to the next, and Tasha and Trevor weren’t just going to be modeling for one of Amy and Jordan’s workshops (where they teach aspiring photographers how to become successful) they were getting married at it!

Top wedding planner (named one of the top by Martha Stewart!) Jenni Thye of Imoni Events generously donated her time and talent to give Tasha and Trevor the wedding of their dreams.  I was honored to design and create a cake for the couple and when Tasha saw it she told me that it looked just like something she would have picked.  How amazing is that!  I even made a side cake of their favorite flavor for them to take home to eat.  It was an honor to play a small role in helping celebrate two kind people on their uniquely, amazing wedding day alongside other talented vendors who donated their time and talents. You can just see their love of each other beaming through these gorgeous photographs!

I wanted to share a few detailed shots, taken by the talented Eyes 2 See Photography, from The Knot Rocks Phoenix Web Launch Party last month at the Arizona Biltmore.  These will give you a glimpse at how incredible the event was!  It wouldn’t have been possible without the amazing vendors that contributed their time and skills.  Thank you again to Amina and her team at Some Like It Classic – Wedding Design for asking me to participate.

Pop Fizz Clink

September 24

One month ago, I was approached by the incredible Some Like it Classic wedding design team to be the featured cake vendor at a special event they were hosting for The Knot at the Arizona Biltmore.  The cocktail party was to celebrate the launch of The Knot’s new website and I was humbled and honored to be asked to contribute.

The idea was to design three cakes to be put on display as “art”.  I was given a vision board, put together by the amazing Amina Garrison, owner of Some Like It Classic, to give me some inspiration and she told me to “do what I do”.  As an artist, I always need some kind of inspiration before I design.  Sometimes all I need is one small detail to inspire an entire cake.  After seeing the vision board I immediately began designing.  The three cakes were inspired by the event’s theme, color pallet, and the overall look and feel of the vision board.  Many, many, many hours and days went into these three cakes and it was rewarding to put them on display for The Knot.

A big THANK YOU to Amina, and the Some Like It Classic team for this opportunity, the Arizona Biltmore for holding the event, The Knot, and the extremely talented vendors that also contributed to a fantastic cocktail party.  Many champagne bottles were popped, connections made, and delicious food and desserts were consumed.  I not only woke up with a smile yesterday but I ended with one…a BIG one!

Here are a few photographs of the three cakes, sugar details, and some swag from the event itself.
