Sketch1-300x224When Wedluxe Magazine asked to come up with a movie themed photo shoot for the magazine the first thing we thought of was Kirsten Dunst’s Marie Antoinette. We knew it had to be Alexandra of Cake Opera to be designing the cakes. I had envisioned tones of blues and rich golds and ornate designs to be starting point for the design. After several calls and emails together as to vision of the shoot, Alexandra came up with this amazing sketch for the cake designs.


MG_4370-200x3001MG_4234-200x3001We decided we would need a great background for these incredible cakes by printing on fabric a custom design produced by Deb of Palettera. The end result was spectacular!

Using a French antique love seat and cushion for the setting, here is the “le petit gateau” scene that took place by a pond at Graydon Hall.

Using antiques for the floral vases and candelabras, we created a luxurious outdoor setting – luckily mother nature cooperated for the shoot.


Deb designed these incredible invitations.
