Lovella Loves…

This dazzling architectural creation by Santa Monica’s own The Butter End Cakery. In fact, you may recall our Architectural Cakes post from earlier this year; this design would have surely fit the theme of this post to a “T.” Recently we featured an urban-cool Venice bridal shoot on our blog. One element we kept under wraps was this fabulous cake. In fact, shoot photographer Brian Leahy had nothing but raves for the Cakery’s baker, Kim Bailey. Noted Brian, Kim was asked to create “a sort of “deconstructed” cake and we left the rest to her. After delivery and setup we were left staring at the coolest 3-tiered, 3-level cake supported by hand-poured concrete bases and steel posts.” Enjoy this exquisitely-crafted eye candy!

Featured: Ines Di Santo Dress from Lovella Bridal in Venice Bridal Shoot

We think you may just fall in love with this very-California bridal shoot featured recently on California Wedding Day. Shot on location in urban-cool Venice, “The property was a crazy cool mix of ultra-modern architecture with super rustic elements of brick, steel, rust and hardwood,” photographer Brian Leahy wrote of the shoot on his blog. We were thrilled to be a part of this fabulous team effort. The Ines Di Santo stunner from our salon fit the setting wonderfully. Beautiful styling and flawless photography helped to elevate this shoot to awe-inspiring levels. Big credit goes to all the fabulous vendors, especially Andrea Freeman who dreamed up the shoot.
