Vintage Romance

We are thrilled to share this post from Royal Lace Bridal, featuring a photo shoot we did last summer. It was a pleasure working with such a talented group women!

VINTAGE ROMANTIC STYLED SHOOT AT THE IRISH HUNGER MEMORIAL

I have been looking forward to sharing today’s lovely shoot for many reasons. One, it gives me great pleasure to showcase local New York City wedding vendors, specially when they continuously submit beautiful styled shoots that can’t go unnoticed. Two, I am completely smitten with the flower work of this vintage romantic shoot!

This shoot is the perfect example of the many different places in NYC besides Central Park or the Brooklyn Bridge where you can take your wedding pictures, so extra credit to the creative team for originality!

Before you scroll down to take a look, let’s here it from the wonderful Loblee Photography:

“We wanted to create a vintage fall inspired shoot but with a soft color palette. The Irish Hunger Memorial is such a beautiful almost haunting rock structure covered with fragrant vines of white flowers. It was the perfect backdrop for a romantic vintage shoot.

“Jacki from Hello Darlington used the textured yet muted pampas grass to create a unique ceremony backdrop with just the right amount of blush roses. 

The warm colors associated with Fall were incorporated in the two layered apple pie designed by Shari of Indigo and Jones with hints of gold to compliment the vintage brass ware.”

How lovely is the calligraphy on the rock? Great escort card idea by Ink and Nibs! Also, I really love the collection of brass and antiques that perfectly set the mood, by my neighbor Mandy from the Little Vintage Rentals.

Wedding Tarts

This weekend, I was commisioned to make a wedding dessert for photo shoot. The setting was rustic and filled with stone, greenery and wildflowers.  A formal cake would have seemed out of place in that environment. The photographer had seen one of my pies with an intricate top crust, and asked me do something along that theme. I had never seen a wedding pie, but why not? I haven’t seen her beautiful photographs yet, but I am so excited with the outcome from my wedding pie endeavor, I couldn’t wait to share it with you. Here a few cell phone photos to tide us all over until the real shots are ready…

The dessert consisted of 3 deep dish tarts of various sizes. The bottom two were filled with pastry cream and decorated with champagne grapes, mini seckle pears, apricots and a new fruit in my repertoire, pichuberries. I inserted a little greenery and a few wildflowers cut from the venue. ( Don’t tell!) The top tier was a fully baked apple pie. Some fruits and leaves were painted with edible gold leaf.

Me, assembling the pie on location:

For the top, I mixed leaves cut from dough with real fruit and flowers. You can see the still undecorated backside of the tarts in this photo. I felt like McGyver assembling an extravaganza dessert on the ground in a corner of a park, but it I think it turned out pretty well despite the circumstances. I will post the real photos from the lovely Loblee Photography as soon as they are available.

This would be a great cake alternative at a wedding, or as the edible centerpiece at a bridal shower.

Since this needs to be finished on site and can’t be shipped, it is only available for order in New York City and the surrounding area. The fruit and flowers, as well as tart flavors can be tailored to your taste and color scheme. Up to 5 tiers available. Additional tarts can be made to accompany this, allowing you to keep your special dessert in tact, and feed more guests.
