Feature of the Month: Chris + Rebecca

On any given day during the week, you can find me perusing the aisles at ABC Cake Decorating in Phoenix, Arizona. To me, this place always feels like I am in my own version of Candyland and I easily get overwhelmed with my own giddiness every time I enter that store.  Sometimes, visiting shops like ABC, is a form of therapy (in the best possible way) and continually gives me inspiration to all the cake designs dancing in my head.

One day, Rebecca’s father, whom is also a chef, went into my favorite cake supply store and asked for a name in the cake artistry world that he could be referred to. I was so thankful that ABC would think of me and referred her family to us! I was then able to meet this happy couple, courtesy of her father, where I then was able to introduce to them my new indulgence in photography–the other side of my business and the rest was history!

We were truly honored to be a part of this beautiful wedding back in August of 2011, and I wanted to be able to showcase it here on our blog page to share their beautiful day with you…

Chris and Rebecca opted to hold their wedding outdoors at the Starfire Golf Resort in North Scottsdale. This place was spectacular for outdoor weddings with golf greens abound and dramatic backdrops. The resort’s wedding event team was truly accomodating and made their day extra special!

We first started out by designing the cake. Rebecca told us she wanted to design her wedding colors around purple hydrangea and magenta pink gerber daisies and then left the cake design to me!

The wedding day came, and her vision came to life as shown here in Rebecca’s bridal bouquet accompanied by the wedding rings and the shoes that would walk her into a new life with Chris…

Rebecca takes time to relish the moments before the ceremony. She is absolutely stunning in her white, sequined, beaded sweetheart strapless gown, adorned in the back with a satin champagne bow and brooch!

To commemorate the things they love as a couple, we caught Chris and Rebecca Duty celebrating their new commitment to each other, in none other than a golf cart! This was such a cool moment!
