My favorite detail from Julia and James’ wedding was the cake table. When the cake delivery man arrived, an inspired Angel said “What if you just put the cake on top of some books?” He thought it was a little strange, but he did, and it looked perfect!
We saved some of my favorite flowers for the simple white cake- delicate hyacinth and tuberrose, craspedia, coral colored anenomes, and dusty miller to name a few.

Here’s me and my assistant looking very serious and intense as we decorate! I have to hold my breath whenever I put flowers on the cake. It’s stressful! One little bump with your elbow and you’ve blown it!
Here’s me and Angel celebrating another fabulous 2009 wedding! Thanks for the iced soy chai, Angel!
The TPetal and Love and Splendor gals: Montita, Shana, Myself, Angel, and Anna.
And my amazing husband Joe, who accompanies me on almost every wedding to be my moral support and do the heavy lifting.
Thanks again to my cousin Jason for snapping pics of the florals- you are awesome.
