Wedding Cake Toppers


How often someone deviates from mainstream standards when it comes to the cake toppers?

I started with sketches and shared them with the bride to be, just to be sure we shared the same vision...

Then, after we settled the conditions, I embarked in this new adventure...challenge...these two birds required very long anchoring prongs which needed to be strong and concealed...the challenging part.

...and it took time, and time...
