If you’ve been paying even the tiniest bit of attention to pop culture recently, you’ve certainly heard the buzz about Eva Longoria and Tony Parker’s lavish red-themed wedding at the Chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte outside of Paris. From their celebrity friends in attendance to her Angel Sanchez dress, the first dance to The Book of Love by Peter Gabriel and the messages inscribed inside their Piaget wedding bands, fans and the press are clamoring for all the details! I can’t wait to see a picture of the 5 tier red wedding cake created by Sam Godfrey of Napa Valley’s Perfect Endings. Reported to be a vanilla-bean pound cake filled with crushed organic raspberry preserves and white buttercream, it sounds delicious! Godfrey is no stranger to creating press-worthy cakes, having worked with celebs like Oprah Winfrey, Jessica Simpson and Courtney Cox, so this one is sure to be a sight to see!

I love the idea of having fun with color in your wedding cake like Eva and Tony did by carrying their red theme through to their cake’s raspberry filling and red outside. Here are some beautiful ways that local bakers have used rich red and blushing pink in their wedding cake designs.

  1. Hi Christy,

    I love the idea of having a sketch done of the most beautiful dress you’ll ever wear – – – Your wedding wedding dress!!!

    Giorgio Armani  did one for Katie Holmes, Angel Sanchez did one for Eva Longoria.  You don’t have to be a celebrity bride to have a fabulous fashion illustration done.  Check out my post on Friday about a great Illustrator who does amazing fashion sketches of brides and their gorgeous dresses.


  2. That’s great Sarah! Thanks! -Christy

  3. On the note of designer sketches. . . I have to brag about Judd Waddell!! Not only is he wonderfully talented but also if you come to one of his trunk shows and buy a gown while you are there he will draw a sketch of you in the gown!! It is one of my most favorite keepsakes!! It even says: Judd Waddell for Rachel on the sketch! I felt like a VIP!!! http://www.juddwaddell.com He is brilliant in all things lace!!
