You "batter" believe this shoot! When our bride-to-be Mika said she wanted to share some fun moments with her friends in Rhodes island while working on her wedding design, little did she know, her besties (and planners) had prepared a cake-tasting party for her. We came up with this idea because we do love to add in a surprise for our brides given the right opportunity.

 

 

Cake tasting isn't something that usually happens in Greece. In fact, the majority of destination brides order their wedding candy based on what they have seen on Instagram or their hearted vendor's catalog. Some even have no idea what the actual dessert will taste like. Mika's arrival was just the chance we had been waiting for.

 

 

We contacted her wedding photographer Stelios Kalisperis, her master patissier Trizeli Confections and in collaboration with her stylist and best woman we set up a cake-tasting experience at the elegant Rodos Park Suites & Spa Hotel.

Chef Zane Stavra founder of Trizeli Confections, Sugar Gardens and Emils Gustavs (one of the top chocolateries in Latvia) is actually a very unique cake artisan whose sugar flowers (each one hand made with sugar) will present you with quite the challenge to distinguish from the real deal. With an immaculate collection of wedding cakes under her belt, she created four different desserts for Mika and gave us all an incredible presentation on each and the flavors she combined to match Mika's upcoming wedding menu.

 

 

We were incredibly thrilled to have this capsule shoot for our future bride as we thoroughly believe that wherever there's pretty there should be photographs to have you remember every second. The best way to spend a fine afternoon with your wedding planners? Have your cake and eat it too, we say!
