{Real Wedding} Kerry and Steve's Skull and Roses Wedding

Kerry and Steve had a wedding that was perfectly them – skulls and roses in scarlet, black, and champagne. Not a second went by without full-hearted smiles and encores of laughter from guests and vendors alike. But don’t take our word for it, get in on all of the excitement with these amazing pictures capturing every moment!

We firmly believe that your wedding should be about you: your love story, your personality, your style.  Kerry and Steve really exemplified this idea, and we had a blast helping bring the idea to life for such an amazing couple.  Every paper good, from their save-the-date and wedding invitations to their table numbers and signage, was designed with couple’s bold spirit in mind.


Kerry and Steve’s wedding invitation used a bright red pocket folder printed with roses and their monogram.  Inside, their invitation wording was inset against a layer of calligraphic scrollwork, which made their slightly gothic invitation very elegant and striking.

During the ceremony, the handsome ring bearer waltzed down the aisle with rings in one hand and our custom sign in the other. The black and red print popped against the pearlized champagne background. Of course, the clever little ring bearer knew the sign could double as a face mask. (Love that photo!)

 The ballroom at Buena Vista Palace was grand and elegant. Sleek black table linens accompanied by splashes of red accented the strikingly crafted black and white details on the walls and ceiling. Guests were encouraged to find their seats with custom-wrapped sweets. Every chocolate bar was wrapped with a coordinating wrapper that contained their name and seating assignment.  We alternated red and black foil for a color pop.

Working with Kerry and Steve was anything but dull. We had an incredible time working with the couple and are so happy to hear that they are now expecting a little bundle of joy to add to the excitement! Thank you to all of the vendors who helped create such an amazing wedding day.
