Pretty In Purple Styled Shoot | The Mill at Fine Creek | Richmond, Virginia

Styled Shoots

Last year I told myself I was ready to step outside of my comfort zone.  I’m an extreme introvert and take comfort in staying behind the scenes.  I prefer to let my cakes be the face and voice of my business.  I decided it was time to get uncomfortable and explore a different realm of this industry.  I set a goal to participate in at least one styled wedding shoot.  By March I had participated in five!

I was surprised and humbled when Jontell, owner of Jontell Vanessa Photography, contacted me to be a part of her Pretty & Purple shoot.  Her creative vision and inspiration was right up my alley.  Light purples, airy, and spring.  The venue, The Mill at Fine Creek, is a rustic gem located just outside of Richmond, Virginia.  The team of creatives that Jontell enlisted to bring her vision to life captured every detail perfectly.

For this cake, I was inspired by the organic nature of the venue and other design elements.  I love the delicate gumpaste ruffles made famous by artists like Maggie Austin, but I wanted to try something different.  I decided to play around with texture, watercolor, and wafer paper.  The end result was a gorgeous two-tiered purple beauty.

The icing on the cake was finding out that the shoot was featured in Chic Brown Bride.  I was truly honored to be a part of this rockstar team.  Go check out the feature here:
