I actually bought my first Wedding Style Magazine last Spring at my local South Orange grocery store, of all places. I remember flipping through the pages after viewing about 10 other wedding magazines. I was in awe of the level of design quality and high-style featured in this magazine; lots of dream weddings and beauty shots. They featured the kind of weddings that are out of reach for most. But that’s what I loved about it. The design I found in this magazine was unique. Out of the bunch of 5 magazines bought that day, it was by far my favorite. I used it as design inspiration for my cakes; everything from the floral design, dress details, interior design to event design.
The magazine was sitting on my desk at Eden Marketplace when I got the phone call stating that they loved our work and saw it standing out as as “art” rather than the typical cake. You see, I had been at a large NYC event in the Spring when they discovered us. One of their reps, Lexi, had tasted our cakes and was blown away with the flavor and design. She introduced herself to my husband as being from Grace Ormonde Wedding Style Magazine . Lexi also looked liked the cover model of the latest issue, pictured above, so I was thinking that she not only works for the company but models too. My mouth hung open, I started clapping my knees and I got all giddy like a kid saying “Oh my God, oh my God, I LOVE your magazine!!!”" I couldn’t believe it. It was so genuine; I couldn’t hide how excited I was.
Later, on the phone call, I found out that Lexi wasn’t the latest supermodel; just a beautiful and stylish rep of Wedding Style. But they knew how truly excited I was to be a part of their select group of recommended vendors. Needless to say, we’re pleased to announce, Heather Barranco Dreamcakes has been selected for Wedding Style Magazine’s exclusive Platinum List as a recommended wedding cake designer.
