I had seen her work online before, but I was super excited when I ended up having my booth right next to her at the Santa Barbara Bridal Expo! Jessica Burton with Coveted Cakery can not only make delicious cupcakes for any occasion, she also offers custom sugar cookies featuring any logo, saying or photo of your choice! I was so excited about these cookies, I just had to get together with Jessica, along with some of my other favorite vendors, for a special wedding favor table shoot.
For this shoot, we used some of James and MJ’s adorable engagement portraits from their session at the Ellwood Butterfly Reserve last summer for individually wrapped tasty wedding favors. The vanilla sugar cookies topped with royal icing and finished with fully edible photos are perfect for your guest to nibble on with coffee at your reception or take home to enjoy later. That is if they have the willpower to wait that long!
The center piece for our inspired shoot was designed by the oh-so-talented Tracey with Ella & Louie floral and included garden roses, succulents, anemone, tulips, pincushion protea, ranunculus, and freesia. Simply stunning!
Can’t chose which photos to feature on your cookies? You can use a different photo on EVERY cookie! Talk about not only a fantastic wedding favor idea, but also a party favor for any bridal/baby shower as well as any birthday party. Oh and the thought of a bunch of vintage photos adorning these cookies at my parent’s 35th anniversary party makes me insanely excited!
Many, many thanks to the St. Barbara Event Center at St. Barbara’s Greek Orthodox Church for allowing us to use their beautiful terrace for the shoot. The Hall room is large enough to accommodate 200 seated guests and includes a built in dance floor as well as an on site commercial kitchen for your caterer’s every need. And access to the terrace, patios and plaza is included in your rental. With views of the ocean and the mountains, as well as countless opportunities for portraits, it’s the perfect Santa Barbara wedding reception venue.
