Wrap It Up Pretty California!
June 10, 2011

We've served up a full course of pretty California weddings this past week and what better way to wrap it up than with a little dessert!  This adorable bridal shower designed by Intertwined Events and photographed by Aaron Shintaku was inspired by the indecisive dessert lover's favorite treat - neapolitan ice cream.  I love how many ways the strawberry, vanilla and chocolate palette were incorporated especially the ribbon-wrapped chairs!  Click here to see the full gallery! We'll see you back here next week once the sugar rush has died down!

Neapolitan Bridal Shower III

As delicious as a trip to the ice cream store, as timeless as Neapolitan, this styled bridal shower created a playful yet feminine and sophisticated design that truly celebrates how sweet love is. Creating a more modern feel, we worked with the traditional color blocks built into a carton of Neapolitan ice cream, ensuring each decorative element in the shoot was represented in three “flavors." From the ribbon table linen, to the chiavari chairs wrapped in color-coordinated ribbon, to the floral centerpieces that moved from one color to the next, the table design was three dimensional and completely unique. Capitalizing on the warm vanilla, strawberry and chocolate colors of Neapolitan, we also incorporated the playfulness of the palette with a wide variety of desserts by Cupcakes Couture of Manhattan Beach that included meringue cookies, cream puffs, macaroons and mini cakes. Cherish Paperie incorporated the trio of flavors into the stationery items to the continue the Neapolitan theme. This bridal shower was inspired sweetness!
