Holly and Geoff are a fun couple with romantic sensibilities.  When I first met with Holly for our invitation design consultation, she told me about her vision for her wedding – romantic and soft, with vintage and glam touches.  Many months later, their wedding perfectly fit that description.  Holly and Geoff had a beautiful ceremony under the Spanish moss-covered trees at Up the Creek Farms. Planned by “I Do” Weddings by Kristen and photographed by Henk Prinsloo Photography, their wedding had plenty of pretty details spanning from the southern feel and open rafters of the Boathouse, rustic touches from vintage furniture and findings, and glam delivered by various metallics and glitter, including sequined table runners. The color palette for the day was blush pink, ivory, and brown.  Textures included lace, pearl, sequins, raw woods, and an itty, itty, itty bit of burlap. We used this romantic range of colors and textures as a jumping-off point when designing their custom invitations and paper goods.

We created their custom wedding invitation in a pouch style.  The pouch was created in a shimmery soft pink and used a wide cream lace wrap, blush satin ribbon, and a die-cut nameplate adorned with pearls.  The invitation was printed with a vintage patina to give the look of aged paper and layered onto blush.  All of the enclosures were tucked conveniently behind the invitation in the pouch ensemble before being mailed.  We addressed their pink envelopes in a matching handwriting-style font in dark brown.

At the wedding, guests could follow along with the ceremony while cooling themselves with our custom fan programs.  Holly and Geoff chose die-cut fan programs, printed on blush pink in dark brown.  We carried their floral artwork throughout their day-of papers.  We also created die-cut table numbers with a vintage patina for the reception, the couple’s sweetheart table sign, and tent-style escort cards.  The coordinating paper goods helped give the wedding a cohesive look from start to finish.  Custom day-of papers are the perfect marriage of function and aesthetics.

The rest of the decor captured the balance between romantic vintage and glamorous styles. Buds Etc. Floral Studio created classic-looking arrangements of pink roses, white hydrangea, and baby’s breath which were tempered by the sparkle of the gold charger plates and sequined table runners from Crystal and Crates. Crystal and Crates even supplied a vintage truck for some amazing photo opps!

Thank you Holly and Geoff for choosing to work with Dogwood Blossom Stationery to design and create your custom wedding papers!  It was so much fun working with you!

Last month, we were a part of the Perfect Wedding Guide Orlando networking event at the new Up The Creek Farms. The entire evening had a warm, welcoming atmosphere, thanks to the coordination and styling pros of L.I.F.E. Events. The venue has a rustic atmosphere that was amplified by the vintage Southern decor. Colors for the evening were hues of coral and navy blue with touches of sunshine yellow, which was seen in the vintage furniture brought by Crystal and Crates Vintage Rentals, the floral arrangements from Buds Etc Floral Studio, and the cake by Best Little Cake House, and our paper goods. We’re happy to share some beautiful photos by Bumby Photography.

We created fun, whimsical pieces for this event. Our custom fans did triple duty! Guests could cool themselves, use the fans as props in the photo booth, and also read the credits for the participating vendors. On one side, we printed old-Southern sayings like “Bless Your Heart!” and “I Do Declare!” while the other side was printed with the list of event sponsors. The curved frame die-cut shape gave the fans a pretty and classic look. Floral artwork in shades of coral decorated the corners of the fans and was also featured on the rest of our paper goods.

The custom table cards were another cheeky element that we made especially for this evening. Mounted on navy blue tent cards, we created signs with stereotypical Southern “tips” such as “Be a one-person welcome wagon” and “Have a signature cocktail.” The cards were backed with various patterns of coral plaid behind a layer of sunny yellow card stock.

P is for Pie Bake Shop provided a dessert buffet stocked with traditional Southern treats. We created round signs on picks for many of the desserts, including pecan pie, s’mores, and berry and lemon cream “cutie pies.” Each of the signs featured a single flower to follow the artwork motif. For the specialty “hummingbird cupcakes,” we made a sign on a navy tent card in a similar style to our other table cards.

We love designing invitations and paper goods that are unique and created specifically for a particular event. Make sure you’re following us on Facebook to see examples of our work.
