Tip Top: Oregon-Made Wedding Cake Toppers

Emily Dryden Alisa Welch

Sumptuously Sweet (left) Outfitted in traditional Indian dress, this couple was crafted entirely out of fondant by Elizabeth Marek of Artisan Cake Company in Beaverton. Marek sculpts and then hand-decorates her highly intricate toppers that can also be made out of slightly more durable clay. $180 per pair.

Proper Proposal (top) A dapper gentleman asks the lady for her hand in marriage and the whole vintage scene is captured in a most modern material: black acrylic. Custom-created with a variety of figures, words and color options, Portland’s Simply Silhouettes makes an old-timey craft of silhouette portraiture fresh again. $50.

Well Suited (right) Paper dolls by Vancouver, Washington, artist Anastasia Mikailenko of Anastasia Marie Cards can be personalized to match the wedding party’s colors and even their clothes. We love the intricate details on Mikailenko’s creations, including glitter accents on the bride’s gown and a tiny coordinating vest and tie on the groom’s suit. $21.50 per pair.

Delightful Duo (bottom) Adorable handcrafted and hand-painted wood dolls by Christine Collins of Portland’s Wood & Grain feature all of the hipster hallmarks of a local couple, including the bride’s vintage veil and the groom’s handsome beard. Truly heirloom works of art, these cuties will recall the happy couple in style. $100 per pair, custom order only.
