You're My Lobster + Farmhouse Chic

Farmhouse Chic in a Ballroom?  Is it even possible......that was the challenge.  I LOVE a challenge!
A downtown Phoenix Venue, hip, chic, fun, centrally located, a destination.  The Hotel Palomar fit the bill.  Trendy, gorgeous, new, and all the right colors, how convenient.  Gorgeous images by Courtney Sargent Photography.  Every couple has a story....their beginning, their courtship, and their marriage.  I am lucky enough to help them plan the beginning of their next chapter, and this couple captured my heart.  They are devoted to each other, their families and their friends.  A passionate love, and SO full of fun and personality.  I can't wait to see their lives develop as the years go by.  Best of luck, Kim and Ryan!

 A custom Ombre Flower Backdrop created by Angela Saban Design (me) and pedestals wrapped in corrugated steel and topped with sheets of moss and antique urns, spilling over with gorgeous blooms and vines.

 Tears were flowing during this very touching ceremony.

 Custom menus using the invitation suite design were placed on each table and stamped with a special monogram by a very talented family member.

 Kim's Grandma provided most of the antique containers used for the centerpieces on long, family style tables in the elegant ballroom.
 This gorgeous linen for the sweetheart table is via La Tavola Linen

The cake design was simple, elegant, and included the "honeycomb element" with lace embossing and gold edible painting.  The lobsters were creating using a custom mold and fondant.  Fresh red dahlias, mini daisies, and orchids finished the Farmhouse Chic theme.

 Floral elements throughout were brought to life by Carte Blanche Design, Randi truly captured the wild and organic feeling that I dreamed of for this event.
 The Farmer's Market Escort Display was a major focal point and design element for this event.  Consuming most of the lobby between ceremony and reception, this large display featured eggs, produce, herbs, vintage containers and custom produce signage listing guests names and table numbers by Angela Saban Design

Bridal Shower Tea Party Tasting

Being designated as the official "Bridal Shower Host" is a BIG responsibility.  The theme, decor, guest list, venue, food, desserts, drinks....oh my!  Dessert should be a NO BRAINER!  Decadent, delicate, delicious.

Tea Parties are so feminine and remind us of the elegant creatures that we are...or at least the vision of elegance that we hope our grooms imagine us to be, right?

Bridal Showers should be fun, a celebration of our upcoming vows and also a farewell to our single days.  A tasting with me, at Angel Cakes might include a little of this..
and a little of that.....

And if that's not enough to get you excited about planning a Bridal Shower....maybe this would help

Call for a consultation and tasting......480-252-3240    Bridal Shower, Baby Shower, Birthday Party or Just a Tea Party!  Let's get started!!!!

Silverleaf + Celebrity Wedding

I love The Silverleaf Country Club, and when you combine a gorgeous venue, a bride with brilliant taste, and a planner who has the talent to pull it all together, then, and only then, a celebrity wedding comes together!   I had the distinct pleasure of designing and executing a delicious tower of butter cream and sugar deliciousness that was their cake!!  Covered in handmade roses and stacked over several days, an ivory castle of butter and sugar, looked magical when surrounded by blush blooms and candlelight.

Four flavors including Strawberry Shortcake and Peach Cobbler...two of my favorites. Adam Jones and his beautiful bride Audie chose the ultimate combinations to treat their guests.
Thanks to BTS Event Management for referring me to this sweet couple.

A special thrill to see TMZ's feature of this celebrity wedding!!
