I have a new favorite venue: the Penthouse Suite at the Fairmont Hotel. For this intimate wedding I used a gorgeous rhinestone trim (which I believe was used on the bride's dress) as a band on two tiers. I also individually cut the stones to use as centers of flowers in my topiary topper. I love the turquoise tile that peeks through in the picture of the topper. I had the opportunity to work with Kathryn Kenna, who is one of the nicest, most easy going and professional event planners I have worked with.
This wedding, designed by the always amazing Michelle of MB Wedding Designs was at The Julia Morgan Ballroom, which is tied for favorite with the Fairmont Hotel(I think they are both designed by Julia Morgan which would explain things). The colors were silver and midnight blue, so with the guidance of Michelle, we created this look. Covered in fondant and painted in silver, the tiers are decorated in hand made fondant jewels and leaves. That very inventive stand was made by Asiel Design.
