{Inspiration} Pink and Gray Southern Glam at Horse Stamp Inn

Custom ceremony paper goods by Dogwood Blossom Stationery

We’re taking you back almost two years ago to this glamorous Southern wedding inspiration shoot. Flaire Weddings & Events created the striking concept of hot pink, gray, and silver against the rustic atmosphere of the Horse Stamp Inn. We were proud to be a part of this shoot–it was even featured in Every Last Detail! Keep reading to see our lovely stationery and more beautiful photos by Jenn Hopkins Photography.

In true Southern fashion, the bride wore leather cowboy boots under her one-shoulder gown from The Wedding Loft. Her softly romantic makeup was courtesy of makeup artist Paulina Perez.

Custom escort cards by Dogwood Blossom Stationery

Our stationery suite used blush pink, gray, and hot pink details. We designed custom invitations using a shantung satin backer board in blush pink, along with ceremony programs, escort cards, table numbers, and menus for this farm-meets-glamour wedding. By using a flourished script and classic French motifs like the fleur-de-lis and quatrefoil, our paper goods brought a very contemporary feel to the barn setting. The quatrefoil pattern that bordered the invitation and all of the paper goods were reflected again in the table runner and on the cake by For the Love of Cake.

Flaire Weddings & Events designed all of the floral for the shoot, from the bouquet to the centerpieces to this custom monogrammed focal point. If you take a closer look, you’ll see that they used blooms of different shades of pink woven into chicken wire. Now THAT’S country glam!

We created menus to wrap around the shimmering pink napkins. The table top used many interesting combinations of laid-back country and high-end glam: silver beaded chargers from Beachview Rentals, mason jars as drinking glasses, a vintage silver tray, and contemporary vases. Our table numbers kept the eclectic feel by combining a classic-looking font with a more modern one.

{Real Wedding…and News!} Misty & Nelio's Blush Pink + Gold Shabby Chic Vow Renewal

Last May, we were excited to be a part of Misty and Nelio Miotto’s vow renewal, which was featured in Orlando Wedding Magazine this month! If you can’t get your hands on a hard copy, check it out online here. The feature highlights the romantic opulence of the event, showing that a vow renewal can be just as exciting and celebratory as the first wedding.

A vineyard can be the perfect setting for any wedding, especially with our custom-made, vineyard-inspired wedding paper goods. The color combination of plum purple and gold beautifully accents the scenery, making it the optimal place for any outdoor wedding. This photo shoot captured by Tod Thompson Photography showcased every detail, from the invitations to the floral arrangements.

The wine label-inspired, layered wedding invitations feature an intertwining gold design with corner accents surrounding a solid gold band, highlighting the purple print inside. The white mailing envelope is lined with a matching purple envelope liner. Don’t they pair exquisitely with the floral arrangements from Peplum Events & Design?

Custom wine bottle labels are a must for a vineyard wedding, making the bottles wonderful wedding favors for your guests to remember your special day. The labels are designed to coordinate with the invitations, with a matching intertwining gold design, and can be made for both regular and mini wine bottles. In this shot, Save the Date Wedding & Event Design brought the winery to the table with their elegant “vineyard chic” tabletop design.

Wine cork escort cards are a splendid seating choice for a winery wedding. Each escort card features a gold double-pinstripe border printed on pearlized white and layered onto plum, and a cork escort card holder to tie everything together. These escort cards can add a fun and rustic feeling to your wedding!

Isn’t the bride radiant in her dress from Modern Bridal? Her dress, along with the white wooden church pews from A Chair Affair and barrels from Lakeridge Winery, helped transport the scene to a country vineyard in Italy.

{News} Dogwood Blossom Featured in FFGC's December Display!

We at Dogwood Blossom Stationery are proud to announce that our work for this Woodsy Winter Wedding was included in the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs’ December wedding display! Our wedding invitations and paper goods were custom-created to coordinate with the display. Check out some stills from the display –beautifully captured by Rachel V Photography – below:

FFGC December Display

For the wedding invitation, we created a custom monogram using a vintage-styled wreath with hand-painted white mistletoe berries and carried the painted mistletoe motif through to the menus and other paper goods. Printed in mossy green on Kraft brown paper, then layered onto textured stark white cotton paper, the invitation is woodsy and rustic, but still formal.

A slim moss green ribbon and wreath-with-hand-painted-mistletoe-berries motifs are the finishing touches that make these perfect without going over-the-top!

{Real Wedding} Jessica & Adam's wedding featured in Space Coast Bride & Groom mag!

So excited to share with you the big news of one of our newlywed couples, Jessica & Adam, having their wedding featured in Space Coast Bride & Groom magazine!  As you can see below, their October 22nd wedding was gorgeous!

Space Coast Bride & Groom MagazineSpace Coast Bride & Groom Magazine

Jessica and Adam chose a palette of pale gold, caramel, and ivory for their wedding invitation and paper goods.  Delicate lace and classic timelessness were major pieces of their vision, so we created a folding invitation (below) with an ivory lace overlay and satin ribbon.  We added a letterpress monogram to the front and a topaz crystal.  Inside, their invitation is letterpressed in caramel and enclosures are contained within a band.  A custom-designed scroll-and-flourish motif adorned all pieces of the invitation ensemble.  Breathtaking calligraphy by Grace Edmands Calligraphy put the final touches on this truly luxurious invitation.

We then carried the color scheme, design, and style from the invitation into their ceremony and reception papers.  Their wedding programs contained the same satin ribbon as was used on the invitation, and the menus, escort cards, and table cards contained coordinating motifs and scrollwork.

Thanks Jessica & Adam for letting Dogwood Blossom Stationery be a small part of your big day!  And congrats on having your wedding featured in Space Coast Bride & Groom!

Jessica & Adam’s vendors include:

Reception:  Suntree Country Club

Planner:  Wedding Belles

Cake:  Oleander Bakery

Decor:  BB&J Linens and A Chair Affair

And a major special thanks to Jessica & Adam’s rehearsal dinner caterer, A Chef’s Touch Catering, for helping me obtain a copy of this issue of Space Coast Bride & Groom so I could share this wedding with all of you!

 

{News} We've been featured in Orlando Wedding magazine!

More big news!  More excitement!  Orlando Wedding magazine featured two of our Welcome Bags in the Spring/Summer 2012 issue, out on newsstands right now.  As the article says, welcome bags are a fantastic surprise for out-of-town guests to find in their hotel rooms.

Celadon green and tangerine, hot pink and emerald green wedding welcome bags

 

Our welcome bag, featured on the left, was created with a Kraft paper gift bag with twisted handles.  It was stenciled along both sides with a celadon green peacock feather.  A square tag, printed on cream, is attached with a tangerine orange ribbon.  A closing clasp is created for this bag using jute twine that loops around the welcome bag tag.

Our welcome box, featured on the right, is a custom-created hot pink box.  It is adorned with white ruffle ribbon and emerald green satin ribbon.  A white faux chrysanthemum sits on top of the box and holds in place a round welcome tag, printed on pearlized white and adorned with two Swarovski crystals.

Have you been scouting for unique welcome bags for your out-of-town wedding guests?  What are you planning to include in your welcome bags?  Contact us at Dogwood Blossom Stationery to begin custom-creating your welcome bags!
