Next Featured Wedding Sneak Peek - Kendra and Jonathan

There is so much I love about our next Featured Wedding, it's difficult to know where to start. Our special couple-of-the-month is Kendra and Jonathan, who were married on May 4, 2008 at The Kahala Resort. Kendra and Jonathan's wedding was reminiscent of old hollywood, classic and elegant in ivories, pinks and champagnes, and roses as the primary floral decor. For their wedding, Kendra rounded up her A-team of vendors, including Chrissy Lambert Photography, Yvonne Floral Design, Angel De Armas cinematography, and cakelava for her cake. Kendra looked breathtaking in her Monique L'huillier strapless ivory gown with a champagne sash and pearl necklace, and Jonathan was dashing in his khaki suit and champagne tie. Together they walked down an aisle covered in pink and ivory rose petals overlooking the ocean as they exchanged vows. The elegant reception took place inside the Waialae Ballroom at the Kahala Resort where Yvonne Floral Design had created a beautiful sweetheart table with canopy for the couple which she embellished with dozens of pink and ivory roses and several vases of roses placed in front of the couple.
For their 4-tier wedding cake, Kendra chose buttercream icing, which has a natural ivory tone to it and worked perfectly for her design. Using old Hollywood glamour as inspiration, Rick designed Kendra and Jonathan's cake to include pearls, design elements of antique frames, handcrafted garden roses and a custom "A" monogram representing the couple's married name. They chose our Bananarama and Hot Fudge Sundae flavors for their wedding cake which all of their guests got to enjoy and take home a piece for breakfast as well.
This wasn't the first time we wrote about Kendra. She was featured in a previous blog, "Kendra and her Real Wedding" where we mentioned her wedding was a My Real Wedding feature on The Knot.
As a bride, Kendra was an absolute dream to work with, and we are honored to feature her and Jonathan's wedding. We hope the past 2 months have been blissful for them and we wish them many more years of happiness together! - Sasha & Rick
Kendra & Jonathan's Featured Wedding will be showcased on cakelava.com in the near future.
