Sonia and Travis celebrated their marriage at the beautiful club at Bella Collina, a Tuscan-inspired venue with several outdoor spaces and breathtaking views of the Central Florida landscape. To coordinate with the stone colors of the club and bring the outdoors in (in a glamorous way), the couple chose sparkling cream, taupe, caramel, and silver as their wedding colors. It was a beautiful combination, perfect for this wedding planned by Vangie’s Events of Distinction and photographed by Rhodes Studios.

We started with a vertical tri-fold wedding invitation printed on Pearlized Champagne with a caramel damask pattern and adorned with a Camel satin ribbon and neat bow along the opening edge.  Inside, a double pocket contained the couple’s wedding invitation and enclosures.  This invitation was adorned with a several Swarovski crystals to add glamour.  This invitation provided guests with a first look into this elegant soiree.

We also worked with Sonia and Travis to create their wedding day-of papers.  At each place setting, a round menu, personalized with each guest’s name, sat perfectly in the middle of a glimmering charger plate under a bow-shaped napkin with blinged-out napkin ring. Personalized menus add such a special touch to a reception, as they make each guest feel acknowledged and welcomed.  We continued using mochas and browns and the couple’s damask pattern throughout the other day-of papers, including table numbers and escort cards.  Swarovski crystals were placed on these items as well.

We were thrilled to be part of Sonia and Travis’s gorgeous wedding! We’d love to work with you to create the perfect papers for your wedding… contact us for a complimentary design consultation.

{Real Wedding} Amy and Brandon: A Fairy Tale Wedding in Taupe, Pink, and Gold

















Amy and Brandon’s Bella Collina wedding, planned and designed by the amazing Blush by Brandee Gaar, was one where literally every single detail was thought of, and each and every one of their nearly 200 guests were treated to personal delights throughout the incredible night.  We worked very closely with the bride and her mom to develop ultra-memorable paper goods that would make each guest feel welcome.

Amy was inspired by her favorite movie, Ever After, and also wanted to invoke some of the baroque style of their venue, so we incorporated a regal theme when creating their custom wedding papers. We used caramel-colored baroque flourishes and custom monogram artwork for their unique folding wedding invitations, table numbers, chair signs and customized wedding passport. We also loved creating rose gold, stitched-side CD cases that were personalized with each guest’s name and inserted with liner notes and CDs with a compilation of important love songs for Amy and Brandon. These CD sleeves doubled as wedding favors and guests’ place cards (and secretly also had a role as a meal indicator icon so servers could serve the appropriate entree, too!). Our custom monogram was used in many aspects of this breathtaking wedding, even being printed on throw pillows and projected onto the reflection pool for cocktail hour.

Amy and Brandon’s custom wedding passport was our favorite paper for this wedding.  These passports were given to guests as they arrived to the venue, and were customized on every page for each individual guest for a truly personal keepsake that functioned as a guide to take them through the night.  On the cover, we printed the guest’s name.  Amy and Brandon wrote a personal note to every single wedding guest, which we printed on the inside cover of their passport.  On the following pages were the schedule of events, ceremony program, the guest’s table assignment and personalized menu.  How special would you feel receiving a passport like this as a guest at a wedding?!

Prior to the wedding, out-of-town guests were greeted with incredible welcome boxes filled with yummy treats and a Bloody Mary hangover kit.  We were happy to work with this couple to create packaging, welcome letters, and door hangers for those ultra-custom welcome boxes.

Concept Photography and Shutterlife Productions documented every timeless moment of this incredible event. The newlyweds sealed their vows with a kiss underneath a gorgeous pink and white floral arch, complete with a chandelier, designed by Lee James Floral Designs. As day turned into night, Amy, Brandon and their guests danced underneath floating chandeliers from Kaleidoscope Event Lighting to the musically talented live band, The Buzzcats.  The finishing touch to an enchanting evening was the gorgeous 6-tiered wedding cake with blush pink sugar flower accents created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes.

Thank you for choosing to work with us to design and create your custom wedding invitations and paper goods, Amy and Brandon! We had a blast designing and producing your custom stationery, and we wish you the happiest of happy ever afters!

When we first met with Mackenzie, Billy, their adorable brand-new puppy Buddy (who is now probably bigger than me!), and Mackenzie’s mom, we knew this was going to be a super fun wedding!  Mackenzie loved whimsical scripts and chalkboard-style layouts, with shabby chic florals, heart-and-arrow motifs, and soft mint, peach, blush, and coral.  We started by creating and mailing their photo save-the-date, using their gorgeous engagement photo by super-talented Best Photography, and then followed several months later with their wedding invitations.

Their wedding invitation used a custom presentation of a landscape-orientation folder in slate gray, with the invitation mounted on the front.  We used layers of mint and custom pinstripes to add whimsy and depth, and created a custom heart-and-arrow monogram as part of their wedding branding that we used across their day-of papers, signage and even on the dessert buffet tags.  Once the invitation folder was opened, a wide lace enclosure band affixed with a custom monogram plate contained their response enclosure, and an information panel was permanently attached to the inside of the folder.  Since Mackenzie and Billy had two wedding ceremonies in which different guests were invited to each, we actually created and mailed two versions of the invitation – each containing unique wording for the ceremony, reception, and travel information.

The place-setting menus and other day-of papers were designed to reflect the style and motifs we used on Mackenzie and Billy’s wedding invitations.  We enjoyed working with the RW Events styling team to create escort cards that could be strung along their vintage painted shutters.  We love collaborating with amazing other wedding pros to achieve results as stunning as this escort card display!

Mackenzie and Billy’s Bella Collina wedding was super adorable and executed flawlessly by Blush by Brandee GaarRW Events incorporated some amazing vintage vignettes – one of our favorites being the lemonade stand.  Lee James Floral Designs did a stunning job with the ceremony and reception florals – we especially love Mackenzie’s beautiful bouquet!  Two Sweets Bake Shop created an incredible and extensive dessert buffet (including amazing and unparalled Krispy Kreme Bread Puddings).
