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!

Recently featured on Wedding Chicks, this truly unique shoot depicts what it would be like to be wedded in a garden wonderland. Forget small splashes of color, this shoot embraces bright, vivacious hues of popping pinks and outrageous oranges to make a dazzling kaleidoscope on the greenscape of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Perfectly planned by Mobella Events, this shoot was captured by the talented Rachel V Photography.

An absolute paradise for any sweet tooth, Two Sweets Bake Shop created a stunning dessert buffet complete with brownie-stuffed tulips, naked cakes, chocolate-drizzled baked pears, pina coladas, and adorably unique gumball necklaces.  Everything Cake created not one, but TWO amazing and perfect cakes – one bright, bold and whimsical, and one colorful but quietly muted.  Pair the out-of-this-world treats with the extraordinary floral by Lee Forrest Design and rentals and decor by A Chair Affair, and the look is absolutely stunning.

We created a layered invitation featuring bright orange, pink, and green botanical-style florals, colorful butterflies, and bees.  To help tone the bright colors, we included a shimmering pearlized gold layer and a custom-printed contemporary-patterned backing in light blue.  The suite included a custom envelope liner printed with the same blue pattern, and the response envelope was detailed with buzzing bees.  Place-setting menus reflected the style of the invitation.  We added an emerald green hummingbird, kept the pearlized gold as the backing layer, and affixed mini butterflies in a selection of bright colors to the top corner of each menu, which added a unique dimensional touch.

For a huge dose of color, we created an escort card display using die-cut “fluttering butterflies” in fuchsia, tangerine, chartreuse, lilac purple, and sky blue, printed with guests’ names and table assignments.  We created a sweet “Meant to Bee” strung banner that can double as an aisle sign at the ceremony and a decor item on the dessert buffet or cake table.

One of our favorite details of this shoot was the confetti bar!  We created simple die-cut signs for this super fun display of colorful puff balls, paper shreds, and sequin confetti.  Seriously, is there anything more festive and fun than a confetti toss?

Modern romance came alive at Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club in this stunning photo shoot by RW Events. The photos by Victoria Angela Photography came out absolutely beautifully and brought to life every detail from the shoot.

We designed the invitations, menus, and escort cards using a combination of modern serif and handwritten-style scripts done in gold foil on mint colored stock. The invitations featured a gold foil quatrefoil grid on the front of the folder and a glittery gold border around the inside. The menus were created in the popular round die-cut shape. We went took a simple approach to the escort cards, repeating the circular shape from the menus to create small disks with the important information for guests to find their seats.

Everything from the bouquet to the candlelit floral centerpieces by Flowers by Lesley felt simply elegant. Inside the golf club, mint green uplighting was used to accent and color to the reception room. Golden decor, from the chiavari chairs to the cake to the table accents, was tempered by the ivory linens and arrangements of white hydrangeas with cream-colored roses.

We were honored to be a part of this gorgeous shoot. Thank you to all the incredible event professionals who contributed their talents:

{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.

Anna Karenina Dress

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.

We created all of the invitations and paper goods with an ornate border and aristocratic-looking monogrammed crest. The black and royal blue accents perfect coordinate with the layered, midnight-colored scheme of the shoot.  The invitation is a generously-sized 7.5-inch square mounted on a midnight-blue velvet-covered panel, and delivered in a black box with a printed address wrap.

Butterfly Escort Card Display by Dogwood Blossom Stationery

We can’t over get how these butterflies quietly spread their message! It’s beautiful, creative, and adds a whimsical touch to an escort card display.
