It’s always fun to see couples forgo a wedding theme and just go with their gut. Jen + Rob just went with stuff they liked—that was the only requirement. It always helps when you have fab taste and an eye for design. Even better when you’re a talented illustrator like Jen—going sans theme just sort of works itself out. Thanks to photographer Rui of Love is my Favorite Color for sending us into the weekend inspired!

Jen says they chose Quinta do Sanguinhal for its historic beauty and how helpful their planner Ana was in dreaming up an 80-person wedding from another country.

A few vintage-inspired DIYs: They created the menus, invites, save the dates, and table numbers. They also collected all the lovely jars and vases and did the flower arrangements themselves (while Sónia Flôr took care of the bouquets + boutonnieres).

Romantic Griffith Park engagement shoot | Photo by Michael Radford Photography | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=85180

For Lizzie + Caleb, it was all about timing. For years they were near each other without knowing. With a number of close mutual friends, they almost met countless times. Once, two years before they met, Lizzie even attended a wedding he filmed—she was in his video. And they’ve been in the same cities at the same time for work, barely missing each other. When they finally met while with friends at the farmers market, the connection was instant. Exactly one year later, they’re getting married the same weekend they met. Cue happy tears!

Thanks to Michael Radford Photography for sending their Griffith Park e-sesh our way!

Lizzie says, As a wedding photographer myself, it’s so surreal to be on this side of the camera. For years of photographing other couple’s stories, I always wondered what it’d be like, who I’d be with and what we would do… What would be our thing? As time has passed over the years, I’ve learned to cherish simplicity in photographs. So when we were picking our engagement session, my biggest priorities were that we’d have pretty light, a soft background, and each other—simple.

Can we talk about this bouquet?! Lizzies friend Crystal of Heirloom Design House created a market-inspired arrangement as a nod to when they first connected at the farmers market.

Sweet parting words, c/o our bride-to-be:

It’s still true that when you know, you know! I feel so overwhelmed and blessed to be called Caleb’s wife. There’s no one I’d rather fight with. And make up with. And watch The Office reruns on the couch with. And be adventurous with. And be boring with. He is the most patient person I’ve ever known, and although no person is perfect and lasting relationships take hard work, there’s no one I’d fight harder for.

Congratulations you two!

Bountiful closing sale

Big news today, lovelies. BIG. Especially if you live in our fair city of Angels. One of our very very favorite shops on Abbot Kinney, Bountiful, is closing and having a MAJOR sale to celebrate. After 20 years in the same spot, the owner Sue, has decided to pursue her design business full time. Which is AMAZING, though we’ll be terribly sad to see such a magical shop depart from our community.

That being said, we’re terribly thrilled to take advantage of the sale!

Cake stands | 100 Layer Cake

Every. Single. Cake. Stand. will be $40 each. $40!!! No matter the size or color. Same goes for glass cake domes, crystal, china, and more. It is WAY worth a trip to Venice to browse Sue’s amazing collection.

Organic, natural Oregon wedding inspiration | Photo by Shannon Von Eschen | 100 Layer Cake

(Yeahhh, prepare to be wooed.)

All of the lovely wedding photography we swoon over here on 100lc is the result of the creatives who dedicate their time and energy to capturing a bride + groom in an honest, authentic, and beautiful light (often literally). When we took a peek at Shannon Von Eschen’s photos from the Erich McVey Workshop she attended, all that hard work and talent was evident. Lucky us, she spilled the deets of the workshop and her experience with us today.

In all honesty, I wasn’t a groupie of Erich McVey‘s. At first. I hadn’t even heard of him until a few close photographer friends raved about his workshop. I Googled his name and was suddenly smitten. I signed up with a close friend of mine, but found the journey to the workshop and the interactions with both Erich and his wife, Amy, a complete and utter joy. They were the most wonderful people in the world and the kindest, smartest, and most encouraging couple I’ve met.

This workshop changed me in so many ways, namely because I learned to just jump in. I was debating on a name change, but they pushed me to do it. I was debating about committing to film, but they pushed me to do it. And I was worried about how I’d grow as an attendee shooting behind a “legend” at a workshop, but they pushed me forward, let me, let us all, shoot as much as we wanted and then, later, allowed us the privilege of sharing our photos with anyone and everyone who wants to see them!

Getting to shoot alongside the talents of stylist extraordinaire Ginny Au was a dream come true. Ginny used the elements of the Earth to inspire all of our shoots and though it’s been hard to pick a favorite, I’d say this water shoot holds my heart. Her ability to portray visually the fluidity of water, but it’s all too common opposites of being both calm, yet fierce, graceful, yet strong, shallow, yet deep, and altogether a beautiful and necessary life giver had me inspiration-whelmed Yes, that. If anything, I hope my photos accurately portray this amazing team of talent–showing how beautiful their ideas and stories are in a still-frame.

They sure do! Thanks to Shannon and the team below who made this workshop and shoot happen!

Alisal Ranch wedding honeymoon | Photos by Scott Clark | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=85416

Happy Thursday, cakies! Recently Jillian and Kristina took a little dual-family trip up to Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort and couldn’t help but think of what a fantastic place it is for a wedding. (Check the ranch’s wedding gallery for a little taste.) So naturally blog pictures were in order! The venue has something for every couple, whether it’s outdoor excursions you fancy or a weekend full of relaxation. Or in this case, a spontaneous family adventure with the boys. Pop over to check out their family trip on Cakelet!

Isn’t it crazy that all this is just 30 minutes north of Santa Barbara? We’re not in SoCal anymore…

The cottages are all adorned with authentic Western decor + range from intimate studios to suites for families and larger parties, so there are lots of options for wedding accommodations. Notice the cozy porch to nestle up on? Perfection.

A view to remember for sure! And as many inspiring outdoor adventures as there are, Alisal is up to its ears in luxe experiences too. Couples can treat themselves to wine and romance, spa treatments, and even fitness classes. It’d be a pretty amazing adventure for a wedding or honeymoon, in our humble opinions. Stay tuned for more family photos over on Cakelet! xoxo

Eeek, who else is super excited for Valentine’s Day? Those of us in the wedding industry can’t get enough of it, that’s for sure. Jillian just created this beautiful V-Day gift using MyPublisher as a keepsake from her + Scott’s Caribbean trip. Once you see it you’ll probably want to snag one of your own to give to that special someone on the 14th. (Which means you’re in luck, because there’s a giveaway!) Okay, take it away Jillian…

I’ve always wanted to create a book capturing our trip to Anguilla. We never had formal engagement pictures taken before our wedding, so it was amazing for Jen Huang to snap a few pics to capture some intimate moments of us on the island. It’s really something we’ll never forget. Can I please go back!?

So MyPublisher has been hand-making high-quality photo books in house since 1994. Their Photo Books have endless customization options like four different covers + four different sizes. You can also add things like a Book Jacket, Photo Finish, Window Boxes, Slipcases… Or customize with Super Gloss Printing, Patterned End Sheets, etc. etc.

There’s also the premium Photo Album option, which means designers lay out the pages for you with higher-end materials like thicker pages and gilded edges for a more refined look. Cover options include solid genuine leather, photo inset, photo finish wrap, and acrylic, with the ability to foil or emboss with the leather option. Both are fantastic ways to house your most special moments.

My book was a Classic Hard Cover with a linen cover (smoke + ivory) and premium paper. I chose lay flat pages which makes sure everyone can see your entire photo when flipping through the book, because they don’t curve because of the binding.
