Pink Chandelier Wedding Cake {Rustic Elegance}

I just adored everything about Sarah and Josh's wedding this summer. It took place on the family's ranch and the reception was held in the barn. The walls were draped from floor to ceiling, chandeliers provided the perfect lighting, and the cake was placed on a wine barrel dressed up with hanging jewels. So when it came to designing the perfect cake to fit their rustic, yet elegant, wedding the couple asked me to look to their invitation for inspiration. I was super excited to see that Stephanie with Stephanie J. Designs was the genius behind the beautiful invitation suite.

From paper to cake: I incorporated the pink chandeliers and hanging jewels and pearlized the cake to match the shimmer of the paper.
