About

Rani Hoover and Brian Leahy invited me to play with them for a styled shoot to celebrate the reintroduction of Crossroads at Firestone Vineyards to the event space. Everything was breathtaking…from the drive to the Vineyard through the mountains to the estate and grounds at Firestone.

The vibe for the day was edgy rock-star-hip bride meets elegant country vineyard wedding. It was a mash-up that Rani pulled off flawlessly, and Brian captured beautifully with his images.

For the cake…I thought four would be better than one. A cake-scape with a large showpiece cake flanked by coordinating smaller cakes was designed for the day. Just the right amount of bling, black and hand painting added the rock and roll edge to the cakes. The mini cakes for the individual place settings were my favorite…the contemporary hand-painted silver on black and white cakes were super contemporary, topped with offset sugar flowers.
