Dallin and Gideon had a beautiful, fun, and ultra-personal wedding at the Orlando Science Center.  They are a creative, fun-loving, and inspired couple who wanted to incorporate their personalities and common interests into their wedding, so we were super excited to get to work on their designs!  One of their favorite leisure activities is board games and gaming, so a lot of inspiration initially came from their favorite games; then for day-of papers we were able to incorporate a lot of other fun stuff from their life together, like their adorable pups, Loki and Samson.  Dallin and Gideon’s wedding was really quite amazing–a thoroughly unique venue that mixed a somewhat industrial concrete patio for the ceremony with thrilling and fun dinosaur relics at the reception, a choreographed swing dance for the couple’s first dance, sock and shoe changes between ceremony and reception, and tons of personal touches throughout.

Our invitations and paper goods featured a color palette of blues, teals, and pale green with a honeycomb pattern based loosely on a favorite game.  On the reverse, we used a hearthstone from the game World of Warcraft.  In the game, you choose a home location, and the hearthstone can be used to return you to that location…how spectacularly fitting for a wedding invitation! The invitation is printed on a sleek transparent sleeve that slides over a textured white pocket folder that contains the response enclosure and important wedding information.  The inside of the folder was custom-printed with their colorful pattern and we used a round nameplate with their monogram on the printed enclosure band that held their response enclosure.

We carried the honeycomb pattern and the clean and contemporary text style onto the menus and escort cards, and the couple’s monogram and styled names were used on several other key paper goods like the ceremony programs, a “guest book poster” for guests to sign, and a larger-than-life sign that was held in the mouth of T-Rex.

Lee Forrest Design did an amazing job creating florals for the ceremony and reception that fit Gideon and Dallin’s style perfectly.  They created a perfect setting for the escort card table in particular, by placing glass dishes filled with stones interspersed with masculine florals into which the escort cards were displayed.

For the first time ever, we coordinated with Party Flavors Custom Cakes to design a custom cake topper!  Their super-unique cake was designed with hexagonal tiers with a fondant pattern that coordinated with the honeycomb pattern of the paper goods.  We also created several signage pieces ranging from table numbers, cards and gifts signage, and dessert buffet tags for the spectacular dessert buffet by Two Sweets Bake Shop.

Gideon and Dallin put so much attention into the details of their wedding, and we were thrilled to be part of their wedding!  We love working with couples who want super-unique paper goods that fully express their personalities and style.  For us, this will be a wedding and a couple to remember for a long, long time.  Thank you, Gideon and Dallin, for choosing to work with Dogwood Blossom Stationery!

“We hired Denise with Dogwood Blossom Stationery very early in the wedding planning process. It was the best decision we made. Denise came up with a modern and contemporary vision for our save-the-dates and invitations that ended up helping us style the wedding overall. As we are not very creative people ourselves, I cannot imagine what our wedding would have been like had we not brought Denise on board early on. We used Denise with everything on paper: invitations, save-the-dates, thank-you cards, custom menus, various signs around the reception and ceremony, a guest sign-in poster, cake topper, programs. Everything was extremely well done, fully 100% customized, and truly made our wedding unique. Honestly, hiring a custom designer for paper goods is naturally going to be more expensive than buying things online. But what a world of difference it made—not just in the paper goods themselves, but in really tying everything together and making our wedding look like it was a professionally-designed event. In every category of vendor, we hired who we were told was the best in town. But out of all of them, Dogwood Blossom was truly the one we could not have done without.” [Gideon and Dallin, review from WeddingWire]

Isabelle and David are a laid-back, surf style couple.  While David actually is a surfer, Isabelle prefers to lounge on the beach as a spectator.  In any case, their wedding was totally reflective of their relaxed, fun, and friendly disposition.  We loved working with this couple to create custom invitations and paper goods that reflected their lifestyle and their personas.

Isabelle and David were married on the beach at The Sandbar Restaurant on the beautiful Anna Maria Island. They incorporated many island-tropical elements into their wedding day decor, including a coordinating, custom-designed suite of paper goods made by yours truly! Dara Caudill of Island Photography did such a great job of photographing all of our paper pieces used at the wedding–we love these images!  (Photos of invitation were taken by us.)

Their invitation was colorful and whimsical, layered onto textured sand-colored stock and backed with navy stock. The artwork depicted a bride and groom at sunset, surrounded by palm trees, surfboards, and curling ocean waves. The important information was written below, entering the depths of the ocean. Tropical fish and seaweed decorated both sides of the invitation. Isabelle insisted that we add a mola-mola fish to the invitation… we never did hear the whole story behind that choice! The ocean-themed artwork was consistent throughout the couple’s paper goods, from the programs to the escort cards to the table signs.

The response cards and the accommodation cards that were included with the invitation were some of the most fun and unique pieces that we created for Isabelle and David. Guests received a custom-drawn map of the island to help them find their way to the wedding festivities. The response card featured personalized questions like “Are you more afraid of sharks or alligators?” and “Do you like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain?” These touches were sure to put a smile on the guest’s face and set the tone for their relaxed beach wedding.

The escort cards were displayed on fisherman’s netting (such a cute idea!) with clothespins. We designed navy blue tent cards for the table numbers and signs identifying the new couple and inviting guests to sign the guest book. For a special touch on the bride and groom’s chairs, we created scallop-edged chair back signs that said “guapisima” and “guapisimo”–“gorgeous” and “handsome” in Spanish. We even created a custom wedding letterhead on which Isabelle printed pertinent wedding info for the bridal party.

Isabelle and David’s wedding really shows how consistent paper goods can make your special day look polished and personal. Contact us if you would like YOUR event to have a cohesive look from start to finish.

It may be the end of summer here in Florida, but we’re thinking about cooler temperatures. We were honored to be a part of this wintery photo shoot in 2012 with Bumby Photography (then known as Kristina Grimm Photography). This styled shoot was even featured on Style Me Pretty! Make sure you read the feature here.

The look of this shoot reflected the rustic touches of the location, Wekiwa State Park Boys Youth Ranch, with blue tones, silver, and warm white. We created our invitations and paper goods using icy blue and kraft-colored stock with snowflake borders and a pinecone motif.

The invitations were printed on matte white, layered onto cool blue shantung satin, and backed with a textured white stock for a luxe, layered look.  A rustic brown pinecone was featured prominently at the top of the invitation and on the response envelope. A sky blue embroidery pattern was used as a border, and also lined the invitation envelopes. Both the invitation and response card were enclosed in kraft brown envelopes. We added a bow in blue twisted paper eco-twine wrapped around the envelope for a finishing touch.

Pinecones and snowflakes continued through the rest of the paper goods that we made. Our napkin-cuff menus were printed on matte white and layered onto kraft and designed to wrap around the napkins for a pretty presentation. We also created a “wedding this way” sign to direct guests to the ceremony, which was tacked to a pine tree and accented by some of the beautiful floral by Fairbanks Florist. To complete our stationery suite, we made simple white escort cards with each guest’s name printed in a lowercase handwriting script, then layered the cards onto sturdy, textured white tent cards.

The winter wonderland really showed through in the rest of the decor as well. The all-white wedding cake by Everything Cake featured white nonpareils and sparkling white sanding sugar to represent the snow that Floridians can only dream of. Hand-painted appliqués in icy blue and silvery gray completed the stunning four-tier cake. We also especially loved the bouquet! Creamy roses and softly-colored flowers were mixed with silver-toned dusty miller and smoky succulents, all wrapped in burlap and tied with brown string.

If you are planning a winter wedding, and were inspired by this look, contact us for your design consultation.

Thank you to all of the wedding professionals involved for making this a beautiful photo shoot:

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.

{Inspiration} Romantic and Dramatic Anna Karenina Photo Shoot

Romantic Wedding Photo Shoot

For brides who love literature, the theme of this styled shoot allows them the ability to step right out of a page from Leo Tolstoy’s classic novel and into their fantasy wedding. Along with the amazing talent of Eventrics Weddings, we captured the style of Anna Karenina through the opulent, romantic, and dramatic decor and paper goods. We invite you to flip through pages of a passionate love affair captured by Clearly In Focus Photography. You can also read more in the feature on Fab You Bliss!

We just love this dress by Modern Bridal Shop: the fusion between modern and antique is gorgeous. The bride’s Victorian-inspired accessories really set the tone for the overall look.

This birdcage veil is great for the modern bride who wants a break from tradition. Equally bold is the bridesmaid’s tulle-topped hat. It’s risky but we love it! Boldly Unique hand made all of the amazing headpieces for this shoot.

Royal Blue Wedding Invitations by Dogwood Blossom Stationery

 

We think it’s amazing how Eventrics Weddings, with the help of Taylormade Wedding & Event Flowers, created unique centerpieces that somehow looked like they were reaching out from the base in a longing manner, mimicking the everlasting desire the couple shares for each other. George L. Gaines Jeweler provided the heirloom china, silver, and glassware, which transported guests to 1870s Russia. Even the decorative chargers and chiavari chairs provided by Event Source Solutions made for an adventure to the past where etiquette and prestige were the keys to happiness. The details in the heirloom silver add a lavish touch fit for an aristocrat and her count. The ornate detailing can also be seen in the shimmering midnight blue linens with black and silver lace overlay and teacups with proper saucers.

{Real Wedding} Kellee and Derek’s Blue and White Country Club Chic Wedding

Weber Photography, TPC Sawgrass, Bay Bouquet, Dogwood Blossom1

Kellee and Derek married in July of 2012. The romantic atmosphere of TPC Sawgrass added to this traditional wedding, which had some amazing custom touches. Kellee wore separate bridal looks for the ceremony and reception, including a change of hair and jewelry! Her gowns from Priscilla of Boston and Martina Liana, Lace Mary Jane by Jimmy Choo shoes, and gorgeous make up by Maureen Riley made this beautiful bride into a show-stopper. Weber Photography captured the magical moments seen here, and Maverick Entertainment crafted a film for the couple to enjoy for years to come.

The elegance of our creamy white and navy blue invitations and paper goods added to the wedding’s country club chic styling. Alexa Pulitzer designed the cipher, which featured two intertwined “M”s to symbolize the union of their families. The couple used this personal detail to connect all of the paper goods.

We designed their wedding invitation using textured warm white papers and pearlized midnight blue. Kellee and Derek chose a custom-printed folder with an enclosure band inside containing their custom cipher and their names.  To surprise guests with a truly personal touch, we printed a fish tail on the back of the invitation that represented varying aspects of the couple’s love story, from their religious roots to the groom’s favorite pasttime.  This “surprise element” fish tail was reflected again on the back of the programs and table numbers.  Even their wedding cake had a surprise fish tail on the back!

Our charming banner-style aisle sign reserved the aisle for the bridal party, and guests were greeted at the ceremony by our sign that asked guests to “choose a seat, not a side.”

Bay Bouquet organized a neutral-toned reception, decorating the room in soft tans, mahogany chiavari chairs, gold accents and soft yellow lighting. Their white flowers with pops of pink and blue were the centerpiece of every table.

Several months ago, I had the great pleasure of being asked by Karry Castillo of Uniquely Yours to create invitations and paper goods for her “Modern Preppy” tablescape (one of 3 unique themes) that she would be showcasing at the Bridal Ball held on March 2, at the Lake Mary Events Center.

As is typical for a wedding stationer, though, I didn’t have a chance to attend the actual event, and therefore wasn’t able to see how my pieces “fit” into the bigger picture.  Well, yay for photographers!  Karry kindly connected me to Chad Pilster of Pilster Photography, who sent me photos of the event.  And…  Oh.my.goodness!

I just love the vision Karry had for this tablescape!  She is so unbelievably talented and I am just so impressed by her.   So here’s the super-talented team she assembled for this particular tablescape:

Concept and design:  Uniquely Yours

Photography:  Pilster Photography

Floral design:  Lee Forrest Design

Table and chair furnishings:  AFR Room Service

Linens and tabletop decor: Kirby Rentals Orlando

Cake:  Something Sweet Cake Studio

And invitations and paper goods, you guessed it:  Dogwood Blossom Stationery & Invitation Studio

For this table, two wedding invitations were created.  The first is a square, layered invitation with two lines of white grosgrain ribbons, packaged neatly in a 100% silk box in bright lime green.  This invitation features a lime green lattice pattern, which is reflected on the inside of the coordinating wedding programs, and on some of the seating cards.

The second invitation uses a lime green and navy blue plaid pattern and features a wide, white grosgrain ribbon custom embroidered with a monogram in navy blue thread.  The plaid pattern on this invitation was also carried through to the program and escort cards.

Thanks Karry, for letting me be part of this event!
