Charm and Treasures
The Ivins’ wedding was one of the weddings you’ll remember and reference for years to come. The colors, the flowers, the stunning bride…so many things just stick with you! When sketching the cakes for their wedding with bride Alex and mom Susie, they bounced ideas easily off each other, and we developed a charming vintage feel for the wedding cake. And for the groom Curt (which Alex is clearly smitten with!), bride and mom together schemed secret details for his alma mater Virginia Military Institute. In the end, I was entrusted with two irreplaceable items…the bride’s grandmother’s 1950s original wedding topper (which I was commissioned to restore!), and the VMI shako to help in replicating for the groom’s cake.
