The Butter End Cakery

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!

Christine Marries Jake in Ines Di Santo

There are couples who have a true spark in pictures, and Lovella bride Christine and her now-husband Jake created just that in their wedding photos. The couple married recently at the Ritz Carlton near Santa Monica. The bride wore an Ines Di Santo gown featuring a fabulously embellished bodice that made way to a voluminous skirt with handcrafted floral detail throughout. In fact, directly below you’ll see a sketch of her gown, in a Swarovski crystal frame, signed to Christine personally from Ines Di Santo, compliments of Lovella. Combined with fabulous jewelry, red nail lacquer and electric blue peep-toe Louboutins, the bride hit a bridal fashion home run. Enjoy the photos from their big day!     Credits: Photography: Duke Photography / Venue: The Ritz Carlton, Marina del Rey / Florist: Beverly Blossoms / Cake: Kimberly Bailey at The Butter End Cakery / Gown: Lovella Bridal by Ines Di Santo / Bride’s Makeup & Hair: Seima Rafidi / […]
