At The Marquardt Ranch, we celebrate not just the beginning of love,
but the everlasting of love as well.
Just a few weekends ago we were lucky enough to share in

Romantic Wedding Cakes

Recently I've noticed a recent return of romantic wedding cakes. These cakes vary from simple to extravagant, but evoke a nostalgia for purer times. Below are some photos of really unique wedding cakes that I absolutely fell in love with!

Amy Atlas' blog is known for her outstanding dessert table arrangements and always leaves you feeling inspired. This design offers a terrific alternative to the basket-weave or lace designs while still looking intricate. Beware though, that is ALOT of frosting!

Eyelet is making a huge comeback this summer, as I'm sure you've seen in the stores. It won't be long before we see this trend show up in wedding decor in a big way! Case in point, your cake! These beautiful cakes show how the design can be incorporated in everything - even your cake.

While quite a bit more elaborate, the two designs featured here still have a quiet, dreamy feeling. The left photo is from Style Me Pretty's Blog, and the cake on the right is on Martha Stewart's wedding website.

2011's New Color - HONEYSUCKLE!!

And no its not a yellow!

While doing research for the new "it" color trends for 2011 we kept seeing this subtle hint of a new color called honeysuckle. Its a warmer, and more red/orange color than the traditional pinks or even corals of the past. We decided to run with it for our booth this year. Lots of neutrals with a hint of honeysuckle!

Well it turns out we were spot on!! Istockphoto.com just released a new article about this hot new color and how its expected to be huge this year, not only in the fashion world but on web designs, print ads to home designs! Check out their article here to learn more about this wonderful color, how versatile it is, and get inspiration on possibly incorporating it into your wedding color theme!

Decemeber Wedding

Congratulations to Vivianna and Norbert!
They booked The Marquardt Ranch with only a couple of months until their big day, but this didn't put a damper on their joy and thrill of getting married. They were both so relaxed and mellow, it really made working with them a pleasure. Norbert's boys were his groomsmen and they were all such a good looking and entertaining wedding party!
Special thanks to Ginger Diaz Photography for sharing some of the photos she captured.
