Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book members cover ALL the wedding bases … from fashion to photography to destination planners and beyond! Today’s feature wedding on the LBB blog was sent to us by Kathy Jo at Raise The Cake, a custom wedding cake stand design studio.

Your wedding cake can be a huge part of your design element … why not show it off to the utmost! After years of planning and designing weddings, Kathy Jo Peterson saw a need in the wedding industry and set out to solve it!  Thus was born “Raise The Cake.”

Raise The Cake

Amanda and Michael embraced that idea as they set about planning their own August wedding at the Ritz-Carlton in Dana Point, CA!

Their wedding is a terrific example of starting with a central color palette and building on that with elements of depth, texture and just out-’n-out fun. LOVE the adorable peek-a-boo bloomers! Not to mention the paper poms and flower girl wand!
