“CAKE Weddings is a new, modern online and print wedding publication. It is designed to disrupt the Arizona wedding industry by appealing to the millennial bride through unexpected designs, unique concepts and luxury vendors. Using AZ Foothills as a platform, CAKE Weddings is built from an established foundation and provides the best exposure compared to local competitors,” says Rebecca Rudd, Director of CAKE.
AZ Foothills VP of Creative, Claire Perkins adds, “As a bride, I was overcome with never ending, mind-numbing content on weddings. The vast majority of the ideas I came across were, in a word, bland. In developing the editorial for CAKE and cakeweddings.com, our focus is to distill the countless choices down to the only the most beautiful, fresh and elegant of options. All things exquisite. The Crème de la Crème!” President and Publisher, Michael Dee who recently married says, “My wife, along with many close friends, who have just tied the knot found it frustrating and disappointing that there were no local sources that talk to todays bride. We intend to change that with CAKE Weddings.”
