Happy Friday, cakies! What a perfect day of the week to share this dreamy desert engagement from Laura Goldenberger Photography. Laura says, Logan + Danielle are an amazing couple! Danielle is an aerial performer (think Cirque Du Soleil) and Logan loves to ride his Harley. They were ready for an adventure, and we had the most fun running around Joshua Tree taking pictures. You’d never know it, but it was absolutely freezing with icy winds the whole shoot. But that didn’t stop them from having a great time.

The Joshua Tree landscape is pretty unreal, isn’t it? Perfect spot for an e-sesh if you’re in SoCal.

Coastal Italian wedding | Photos by Studio A Q | Read more -  http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=71055

Uh oh… we feel a major case of wanderlust coming on. A coastal Italian wedding like Francesca + Michele’s can do that to a person. Those views of the beach and the crystal blue water? Srsly unreal. And then don’t get us started on that authentic Italian cuisine guests dined on. We can hardly imagine a more romantic destination to tie the knot. Thanks to Studio A+Q for sending these print-worthy shots our way.

Rustic, modern Smog Shoppe wedding | Photo by My Girls on Film | Read more - http://www.100layercake.com/blog/?p=71990

There are a bajillion reasons to adore Kate + Brian’s rustic and relaxed wedding. But one of them is that it took place at SmogShoppe, one of our very fave L.A. venues. Besides being totally solar-powered and sustainably designed, SmogShoppe is home to a succulent wall ceremony backdrop and chic vintage furnishings. So cool. These two also had Nick Radford and A Stunning Affair on board, working their photography and design magic. Take a peek…

From Kate: I thought I would be nervous walking down the aisle, but instead I was overflowing with joy and incredibly calm. I was on my Dad’s arm, walking towards the love of my life, while surrounded by all my favorite people. I felt enveloped in love.

Brian: The moment I heard the processional music start (Van Morrison’s “Sweet Thing”) I knew it was real, it was happening, and I could not be more excited. Then I saw Kate, we locked eyes, the audience disappeared and it was us, only us.

Kate says, The venue and the flowers were very important to me. I was dead set on having our wedding at SmogShoppe. It just felt right! The flowers were also very important to me. I wanted lots of bright colored flowers to brighten up the succulent backdrop.

Brian says, We wanted that perfect space that was aesthetically in-line with our style and the way we live, while being a mutable, changeable backdrop. This allowed us to focus on the details, the colors, the smells, and the ambient light.

To keep with the succulent theme, Kate + Brian bought 150 baby succulents and cacti, and planted each one in a tiny tin bucket. After planting them all (a very laborious activity!), Brian laser-cut hearts into wood and engraved each guest’s name and table location onto it.
