While they're not wedding dresses by design, these lovely frocks from Erdem's RTW line would be just as gorgeous walking down the aisle as they are walking down the runway.

bad ass wedding 2010!

we truly love all of our clients and have a blast working with some of the most creative brides out there! however, if we were going to pick favorites (which were not), erica and alan would be very high on our list! when we sat down with erica she gave us an idea of what type of atmosphere she wanted her design to invoke and the type of experience she wanted her guests to have. from there she really let us fly with our ideas and the outcome was a bad ass wedding! set at the foundry, she and alan had an amazing line up of vendors that made this evening truly special. below is a sneak peek at some of our favorite shots, but make sure to check out the full feature today on 100 layer cake!

BUT, have you seen her new and improved website and her new designs from her spring 2011 line? you won't want to miss this ladies!

we heart 100 layer cake!

ladies and gents it is here! 100 layer cake's website is up and running and it is totally amazing. from a marketplace to a fantastic vendor listing it has so many great aspects. make sure to stop by, check it out, and use it as a resource!

Take a break from cake!

Why not treat your guests to something a little different?

Here are a few of our favorite alternatives...

Doughnuts are delightful!

Or these mini pies... are they adorable or what?
They can serve double duty as a favor if people would rather save their sweets for later.

And, my personal favorite: good, old fashioned strawberry shortcake.
Nothing could be more cheerful (or more delicious) than this tried and true dessert!
