Indigo, Gold & Cream – Color Theory

The regal elegance of the Glen Manor House inspired a dark and glamorous color palette exuding Gatsby Era allure.

Talia’s heart was always set on a dark, romantic wedding like that of a Gatsby party; filled with midnight blues and glittering gold accents. After meeting with Semia of Flowers by Semia her focus shifted a bit to incorporate more neutral hues like deep, earthy greens and warm whites. “Too much glitz could’ve come off tacky — my vendors did an amazing job at keeping everything balanced,” Talia recalled. Midnight navy linens were topped with tall gilded vases that were filled with creamy blooms on each round table. Under a canopy of twinkling lights a long navy table lush with a garland of greens created a magical outdoor dining experience for the bridal party. The cake, created by her dear mother Maureen of Something Different Cake Couture was like edible art; each layer a different texture and adorned with sugar anemones just like in Talia’s bouquet.

Sweet Spot – Something Different Cake Couture

There’s cake couture, and there is Something Different Cake Couture. Maureen Girard is a master cake stylist that specializes in edible works of art stemming from her background in painting and sculpting.

1. How did Something Different Cake Couture come to be?

Somewhat by accident. I met a Chef from Johnson & Wales Culinary school and she took an interest in my new interest in cake decorating. I told her I had an Art background (painting and sculpturing) and she thought I would enjoy seeing what could be done with cake and fondant icing. One thing led to another and from there I took classes from some very talented people and my business grew.

2. Do you only offer cakes or other desserts as well?

Mainly I offer cakes for ALL  occasions, not just weddings.  I also offer cupcakes, and decorated sugar cookies.

3. What is trending in cake design/dessert tables?

I’ll be honest, it depends on the client, what may be trending they don’t always gravitate towards. Drip cakes, marble fondant designs, geode designs have been trending since 2017 and have continued through 2018. I’m also seeing a lot of black and gold and painted on cakes! I don’t do a large number of dessert tables, but I do wedding cakes along with cupcakes and cookie combinations.

4. Do you have any signature flavors? 

Pink Champagne is the favorite!

5. Fondant vs. Buttercream… which do you favor? 

I prefer fondant (with butter cream is underneath!) because it’s such a versatile medium to work with, so much that you can do with it , on it. etc.

An Idyllic Autumn Wedding in Vermont

“We set out to create a joyful wedding filled with vibrant colors that fit seamlessly into the natural beauty of the early autumn Vermont setting. Jaclyn Watson Events put heart into the event & executed it expertly,” Katherine raved. 

Katherine’s bouquet along with the rest of the floral design were inspired by the rich, colors of a classic 19th century European floral still life painting.

Glittering disco balls hovered above the farm tables adding a touch of whimsical glam to the barn setting, foreshadowing the disco dance party that would ensue.

An autumn rainbow of roses infused a splash of color into the neutral place setting.

Modern draping & twinkling lights strung by Drape Art Designs juxtaposed with wrought iron chandeliers & exposed wooden beams created the perfect balance in contrast.

Mini skewers for snacking while dancing!

Sugary-sweet simplicity gets dolled up with petals & blooms.

The perfect ending to the perfect day…
