Sometimes we meet someone new in the industry and immediately we’re smitten. It was like that when we first struck up an Instagram friendship with Janelle of re:find joy in Chicago. Not long after, she was on a train to Ann Arbor to discuss her own upcoming wedding. Her whimsical sketchbook and quirky urchin inspiration were utterly enchanting. We love how just a little bit of creativity can transform our simple vintage buttercream wedding cake. Without further ado, here are a selection of shots by Julia Franzosa of Chris & Janelle’s mystical, magical backyard wedding.

As a new business, it was very exciting for us to be asked to make a cake for such a well read magazine as the Metro Detroit Bride. The spread, “Studies In White,” is in this month’s issue, so we can finally share the beautiful photos with you.
We’ve become quite adept at making these lovely sugar peonies. We build them petal by petal, and each one has it’s own character. This is also one of several cakes we’ve made lately playing with petals.
