Luxe Wanderlust at The Old Westbury Gardens, NY - Wedding Cakes NYC

We love every chance we get to collaborate with wonderful industry professionals; our peers' individual passions come together beautifully and yield a fantastic result!

It was a joy to work alongside Judy Pak and Matthew Lee as they photographed our wedding cakes at the Old Westbury Gardens in Old Westbury, NY. Judy and Matthew are energetic and incredibly talented photographers who not only specialize in weddings, but also have backgrounds in fashion and portrait photography. Their fantastic wedding images reflect their experience in directing and connecting closely with people in their photographs. You can see this in the lively & dazzling images they captured of the shoot!

We enjoyed having the models interact with our designs; their love of our cakes added a great element of playfulness to the shoot. The concept for the day was Luxe Wanderlust: whimsical, luxe, refined, and well traveled. Enjoy!

Thank you to Poppies and Posies's: The Trove, a curated prop shop, for supplying us with cake stands! 

It was hard for the models to resist our sugary sweet designs!

The models wore stunning headpieces from Emily Riggs Bridal. Emily Riggs provides every beautiful feminine necessity in weddings, from bridal gowns to bouquet wraps. 

We loved the gorgeous custom linens that Nuäge Designs provided for us; they coordinated so well with the theme. 

Pola of Rosehip Floral created organic, yet refined floral centerpieces for the table. She beautifully combined blushes and grey/greens for a very romantic and whimsical look. Antique books were stacked to give the centerpieces height and the well-traveled feel that Lauren of Loli Events wanted to achieve. Who better than Loli Events, the Paris and NYC based event planning firm, to create a well-traveled look!

We love this unique XO sign!

For this shoot we gave our White Windswept wedding cake, from the AP Signature line a customized new look, using blush pink and gold hues. The textured fondant covering the three-tiered cake was painted in gold, and the cascading sugar peony was made of blush pink fondant.

We loved the architecture and landscape of the Old Westbury Gardens. What a beautiful backdrop for a photo shoot!

Rosehip Floral's bouquet design was luxe with fresh peonies, garden roses, and English roses, but also natural and eclectic in its construction, featuring berries and leaves. Sprigs of small delicate flowers gave the bouquet a lovely whimsical touch. 

Seunghyun Seo styled the models hair:  whimsical, relaxed, and refined, flawlessly incorporating fresh florals by Rosehip Floral as a headpiece.

Bridal-wear expert Gabriella Risatti of Gabriella New York Bridal Salon provided stunning gowns by British designer Jenny Packham. Packham's design house dresses countless celebrities and public figures, including Catherine Zeta Jones, and The Dutchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton.

Seong Hee Park's makeup artistry paired with her long-time experience in the fashion industry expertly provided the models with two different looks throughout the day, seamlessly transitioning from an organic look to a sophisticated smoky eye.

Ana's wedding cake designs for the shoot are from both her Custom Cakes and AP Signature lines.
