today is my birthday, and i must say…this has been one awesome birthday week i am having!!! first we had a spook-tastic halloween with my family, secondly james has been spoiling me rotten, and last but not least, we had two of our weddings featured on favorite blogs and now i can share with you all!
we are so overjoyed that the team over at 100 layer cake featured our sweet elyzza+michael’s colorful latin infused wedding! i shared a bit about them last week, but here is more about the inspiration in the design and planning…
elyzza and michael are such a fun, beautiful couple, and wanted their day to be vibrant and full of culture!! they both come from different latin backgrounds, elyzza is mexican and ecuadorian, while michael is el salvadorian…so we wanted the wedding design to reflect something these countries had in common. while researching the countries we ran across these amazing images of pottery being sold in marketplaces, and this immediately became our inspiration.
with the museum of latin american art serving as our backdrop, it made for a perfect blend of the beauty and rich colors that they wanted to reflect in their day! elyzza and i went to a local market in la to handpick all the pottery pieces that we used throughout the wedding. my favorite was the large pottery piece that we used for the guests to sign. all these pieces are meant to be incorporated in their home after the wedding! another fun project was the ceremony decor that was inspired by piñata tissue paper, it was such a beautiful statement piece in the sculpture garden for the ceremony. my floral designer extraordinaire megan with honey and poppies rocked that out! i also loved the handrolled paper flowers that we had lori with paper and thread create for our escort card display piece…it was a colorful work of art!
their day, like them, was full of so much love, laughter, and culture!!! thank you elyzza+michael for letting us be apart of creating your fabulous wedding, and thank you 100 layer cake for telling their story!!
