My health had gotten the best of me lately and it’s been rather difficult to get any of my DIY projects done. The list is rather lengthy, so I’ve been feeling the stress in more ways than one and it came out in my first wedding nightmare. The scene began really normal; set during wedding rehearsal. All of a sudden I felt rushed for time. Nobody was doing what they were supposed to be and things were going undone. The discomfort was enough to wake me briefly, but I fell right back asleep into the nightmare. Only this time, it was the wedding day. The panic was about stage 9 and I was having a full-out melt-down. It was 45 minutes to show time and my makeup wasn’t done. I called out for my makeup artist (MUA) and Puff Daddy appeared with his handlers not far behind carrying makeup brushes insisting that he didn’t work before he had a few drinks—(BLANK STARE). It got even weirder from there, but I won’t bore you with all my foolishness. I’m chalking it up to all those Ciroc commercials that have inundated the television and apparently my consciousness.
One thing is for sure, it helped me get moving enough to finally break through the haze and get off my tush. As of today, I’m proud to report that my invitations are done and out the door. If it wasn’t clear before, I really enjoy print/visual projects. And it was really eating me up to not be able to get them done.
For starters, the invitation design was done long, LONG ago—even before our save the dates were finished. The biggest hang up was the RSVP information card. It was my decision to nix response cards in order to eliminate the costs of return postage and envelopes in favor of a live RSVP service. One of my best friends used a RSVP service where guests called and got a live agent to go over all the pertinent questions (i.e. meal choice, guest’s name). I was impressed by it and planned to use it for our guests that aren’t savvy enough to RSVP via our wedding website (which I LOVE btw). Well, that plan went bust when I called and discovered that the company no longer offers the service. I was SO bummed. I searched and searched but couldn’t find another service like it. Every other service offered a voicemail message system, where they’d compile the information and send it upon request. I wasn’t impressed and the cost was laughable. Why pay someone hundreds of dollars to do what can be easily done for free?
In what could be described as nothing short of a state of delirium, I found myself saying aloud, “Nice job Bianca, you now have another project.”
Wendy Laurel Photography + the folks over at Pacific Weddings magazine are lucky enough to have the Maui beaches at their disposal when dreaming up beautiful shoots like this one. White sand, black rock, gentle waves rolling in… we can hardly imagine a more scenic natural backdrop. The theme for this shoot was “velvet and the beach.” When we think about the beach, we don’t normally think velvet—and that’s exactly what we love about it. Just add a touch of velvet ribbon, a tufted, regal-looking settee, and all of the sudden the beach feels less laidback and a little more dramatic.

It’s almost impossible to imagine that 100 Layer Cake is 5 years old this month. FIVE YEARS! So much has happened with our business and our personal lives in the last five years. We thought we’d take a minute to reintroduce ourselves to you all, old readers and new. Because it’s always nice to know who’s behind the scenes, don’t you think?
To celebrate the big 5, we had a fun portrait session with balloon artist Jihan Zencirli (of Geronimo Balloons) and photographer Jennifer Young. Together these two have formed the Art/Mo project, a traveling portrait studio specializing in festive, modern portraits. Art/Mo is headed to Stockholm and New York next, and to celebrate their travels, we’re giving away a session in New York during the first week of April, at the end of this post. You don’t want to miss it!

When Sitting in a Tree and Studio Castillero team up something magical happens. (Case in point, Miss Lucca’s sweet second birthday party that we shared over on Cakelet a couple weeks ago.) This time, these two teams of creatives were inspired to design an industrial woodland inspired wedding. Using varying textures like lace, plaids, wools, and chambrays, they created a look that’s both soft and moody. They paired dark lips with lace, matte black candles with pink paper goods, and plaid linens with lush florals. It feels like a modern day fairytale.
Under 7 grand?! You bet your sweet patootie! This spunky bride DIY-ed her way into a gorgeous day that was filled with fabulous ideas and wonderful memories; the only thing it was lacking was whopping price tag! Mindy and Alex were able to transform her parents backyard into a charming wedding wonderland without the restrictions that a public venue would have. This gave them the freedom to set up whenever they liked, party as late as they wanted, as well as commemorate the day with one of the cutest ceremony ideas we have seen to date!
Intrigued? We hope so, keep reading to find a full list of all of their DIY projects and to see their full budget break down! And as always there is tons more to see of this casual elegance wedding for under 7k in the full gallery here. All beautifully captured by Rachel Solomon.
