Aeolidia to the rescue!
After working in the pastry and culinary arts world for seven years, Laci is transitioning into a line of work that will allow her to work from home, have a family and really focus on her strengths in the wedding cake field. Laci and her husband moved a year ago from San Francisco to a small rural plot of land in Sonoma County California. They purchased two acres with the hopes of turning one of the small “sheds” into a commercial kitchen that can be used to produce wedding cakes. The kitchen will also be a place for community learning and shared farm to table dinning experiences. The new Wind & Rye website will share information about Laci’s wedding cakes, as well and kitchen events and work with the local community.
Aeolidia to the rescue!
Our first goal was to create a simple and refined logo for Wind & Rye – a mark that strikes the balance between bold and soft, rustic and feminine. The new logo will help identify the company as a place where people can revisit their personal relationship with food through the ritual of eating on special occasions, in their daily lives or extended learning opportunities.
We then moved on to website design, keeping in mind Laci’s desire for a clean and simple website. The concept is elegant, but still approachable.

About Wind & Rye
About Wind & Rye Kitchen
Few things are more intimate than food. Sharing a meal together nourishes our body and feeds our soul. Located on the private farm of owners Laci and Travis Sandoval, Wind & Rye Kitchen was created to celebrate our personal relationship with food through the ritual of eating on special occasions and in our daily lives. Whether you’re looking for the perfect wedding cake or a memorable meal shared with friends under a starry night sky, we welcome you to feast with us.
Wedding Cakes & Cake Stands
Combining the joy of small town, majestic nature with the deep appreciation of food that runs through the spirit of the Bay Area, Laci and Travis work together to create a wedding cake and glass pedestal that speak to each couple’s unique style and vision.
Our cakes are created using locally-sourced, seasonal ingredients to celebrate both the fresh vibrancy of the food all around us and the small farmers and businesses that are so essential to our community. Because we believe in doing everything with intention and with our own two hands, we invite couples to visit the Wind & Rye kitchen, relax in the beauty of nature, and see firsthand where their cake will be produced. Our intimate cake tastings, paired with the hand-crafted cake stand that serves as a wedding keepsake for years to come, make for a bespoke experience unlike any other.
Inspired by all the ways food gives to our community, we’re striving to give back. We’ve partnered with local farm County Line Harvest to turn thousands of pounds of their unused produce into jams, preserves, and pickled goods that can be sold at nearby farmer’s markets. It’s our way of helping cut back on food waste while supporting our local agriculture.
Events & Experiences
So much of how we connect is food-driven. It’s why the kitchen is the heart of the home and sharing a meal bonds us. We invite you to participate in this special ritual through our many farm-to-table dinners, cooking classes, food growing lessons, nutritional information sessions, and more. Our events and meals are experiences meant to rekindle our sense of community and share a love of food. View our calendar.
