{Real Wedding} Sarah and Steven: Sparkling Navy Winter Romance






Sarah and Steven topped all the past and future Valentine’s Days they would spend together this year. Why? Because this year, they tied the knot at the luxurious Grand Bohemian Hotel, of course! To complement their white and navy winter wedding theme, we created custom navy and rose gold pocket wedding invitations.  Their spectacular rose gold invitation folders were foil-stamped in navy foil on both the front cover and the pocket to create a truly sensational invitation.  For their walk down the aisle, we created a gorgeous aisle sign, complete with navy details and over 20 hand-placed Swarovski crystals to make it sparkle and shine. At the reception, we created coordinating day-of paper goods, including a navy seating chart, displayed in a mirrored frame by An Affair to Remember, and round custom pearlized blue menus, printed in white ink and personalized with each guest’s name and entree selection, then adorned with crystals. In a twist to their typical dessert table, Two Sweets Bake Shop delivered a selection of desserts to each table at the reception, accompanied by a small dessert menu to help guest navigate the individualized display.

An Affair to Remember transformed this incredible wedding into a white winter paradise while Tab McCausland Photography captured all the details. Gorgeous white floral arrangements and crystal trees from Atmospheres Floral & Décor decorated the ceremony and ballroom, with the center of the reception featuring a customized dance floor provided by That’s a Wrap!. The final touch to the newlywed’s winter retreat was the gorgeous 3-tiered wedding cake with pearl detailing and white and silver buttercream tiers designed by Party Flavors Custom Cakes.

We loved every moment we spent working with you, Sarah and Steven! We hope you adored your custom wedding papers as much as we had a blast creating them for you.  Thank you for choosing to work with Dogwood Blossom Stationery!

Back in February, we sponsored the monthly meeting for the Association of Bridal Consultants Central Florida by providing all of the paper goods. Held at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Winery in Winter Park, the evening had a rich, sophisticated look that was inspired by the colors of wine. Weddings in the City did a fantastic job coordinating all of the details for the team of local event professionals who contributed products and services to the meeting.

Errol Colon photographed all of our paper products so beautifully! We created two different die-cut menus, escort cards, place cards, table numbers, and the sponsor card. All of our paper goods used cream-colored stock and featured a floral motif of garden roses in a warm-toned palette of deep reds, plum, pink and orange. The text was printed in shimmering gold, including a foiled finish on the round menus, to coordinate with the mixed metal finishes of the rest of the event decor.

For the showcase table, we made a round menu that fit perfectly on the gold filigree chargers by A Chair Affair. The dinner tables featured our menus that were die-cut in a curving frame shape. Both menus used the colorful floral artwork (along the side for the round menu, and along the bottom of the curvy menu) and a modern calligraphy-style font. The curvy frame shape was continued with the simple table number cards, and a similar shape was used for the floral-filled place cards. Both the escort cards and the sponsor card were mounted on shimmery, deep red tent cards. The color and finish of the red stock matched perfectly with the wine-colored showcase linens provided by GBS Linens.

The rest of the decor for the event used a variety of finishes and textures for a layered, collected look. We love the mix of silver and gold pieces along with gleaming glass and natural bamboo on the table top. Atmospheres Floral & Decor created gorgeous topiary-like centerpieces for the showcase tables, and smaller floral arrangements with fiddle ferns and deep red roses for the dinner tables. The cake by Party Flavors Custom Cakes appeared to be covered with small Spanish tiles, and had a pop of contrasting color with the turquoise lace borders and cascade of deep blue sugar flowers.

We were honored to provide paper goods for this meeting, and other ABC meetings as well. Check out our Facebook page to see other examples of the work we can produce!

Thank you to all of the participating event professionals for creating a fabulous event!

Beautiful flowers abound in this playful, Americana-themed shoot captured by Claire Pacelli Photography and coordinated by Michele Butler Events. Showcasing bright reds, whites and blues, bold stripes, and oversized flowers, this gorgeously modern shoot is truly special. We are excited that it was recently featured on Every Last Detail!

We created a folding invitation featuring wide horizontal stripes in navy and silver foil. Inside, the folder is printed with white and navy stripes, and the invitation is die-cut.  The response enclosure is also die-cut and is contained within a navy satin ribbon enclosure band adorned with a die-cut monogram.  A contrasting poppy print lines the dark blue envelope, for a colorful floral surprise. We created a monogram of the bride and groom’s initials that is featured prominently on both the envelope and the RSVP card.

The poppies, stripes and frames are carried throughout the paper goods. Featuring these motifs, the cheerful escort cards are mounted on folded navy tent cards. Displayed on the brilliant red chargers provided by BBJ Linens, our handcrafted menus also feature the charming monogram on the top header. A red fabric ribbon with notched ends is a perfect custom addition that gives a lovely textural effect, running vertically through the menu.

The exquisite floors of the Wyndham Resort International Drive were the inspiration for the entire shoot! The oversized flowers and intense hues gave birth to the concept for “Red, White and Bloom” and inspired the rest of the decor. Over The Top Rental Linens created the perfect homage to Americana with the dynamic striped fabric background for the ceremony. We also love the eye-popping, patriotic floral arrangements by Atmospheres Floral and Décor which used a veritable garden of roses, tulips, and ranunculus.

For the candy buffet by Sweet Bliss Couture Candy Catering, our custom tags adorn the displays with navy striped ribbon, elegant script and the lovely poppy motif.  A three-tiered wedding cake by Anna Cakes is the perfect finishing touch, with a rich red floral ruffle, subtle lace textures and bold stripes, topped with a single red rose.

{Real Wedding} Barb & Steve's Vintage Dessert Table by Two Sweets Bake Shop

You’ve heard of the “first look” when a couple sees each other for the first time before their ceremony.  Well, here’s a “first look” of a couple seeing their dessert buffet, created by the amazing Two Sweets Bake Shop, for the first time prior to their reception.  Barb and Steve were married at the jaw-dropping Grand Bohemian Hotel, and I do believe their faces in the photos say it all!  This is why we love working with Two Sweets–to create custom signage and buffet tags for their incredible dessert displays–because the reaction is priceless.

It was a moment that Barb can now relive forever thanks to Castaldo Studios, who did an amazing job capturing every sweet moment from this wedding reception! All of the details really made this buffet into a show-stopper: from the sumptuous floral designs by Bluegrass Chic, to the wine barrels and wooden tables from A Chair Affair, to the gorgeous petite cake by The Sugar Suite. Everything was expertly planned and pulled together beautifully by Swanky I Do’s, who helped the bride design the buffet with more that 22 sweet treats!

We designed the buffet tags and signage to reflect the antique style of Barb and Steve’s invitation.  We thought artwork that mimicked vintage perfume bottle labels would be a perfect fit for such an elegant vintage display.  We printed these pieces on creamy paper in a sepia tone, and then layered them onto bronze tent cards.

Congrats to Barb and Steve and best wishes for a wonderful life together!  And thank you to Two Sweets Bake Shop for having us create these custom pieces for such a lovely couple!

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.
