With the holiday season approaching, the timing was perfect for our “Winter Wonderland” styled shoot with Andi Mans Photography and planner extraordinaire Blush by Brandee Gaar. A variety of deep and vibrant shades of red mixed with plenty of white and gold made this shoot look modern and romantic, with plenty of references to traditional holiday elements. Classic holiday elegance was combined with warm wood tones and a variety of textures to give the shoot an inviting feel. We used these rich colors and textures and mixed in warm, casual notes when creating our invitations and paper goods.

Our invitation was enclosed in a folder that was wrapped with a red satin ribbon. Inside, the invitation and response card were die-cut to create a pretty frame edge, and a band of red satin ribbon also held the response card. While the exterior of the folder was white, the interior featured a deep red with a subtle damask watermark with rosy-colored florals used throughout.  The floral motif and carried over to our deep red custom menus, which were also done in the die-cut frame shape.

We used our new printed wood technique to create customized tags for the napkin ties, chair back escort cards, and to label the ingredients for Two Sweets Bake Shop‘s hot chocolate buffet. Each set of wooden cards was cut in a different shape: rounded squares, scalloped edges, and even the frame shape that we used for the invitations and menus.

Every element of this shoot was carefully thought out. We loved the whimsical and decadent hot chocolate buffet with accompanying mirror board by Chalk Shop, the amazing variety of flowers and greenery by Cheryl’s Distinctive Creations, and the warm plaid blankets wrapped around the dazzlingly elegant bride and bridesmaids. All together, this great mix of styles should provide the perfect inspiration to get you in the holiday spirit!

We loved showcasing some of our unique techniques in this styled shoot! You can get a similar look for your wedding or special event–just contact us for your design consultation.

Thank you to all of the talented event professionals that we had the pleasure of working with on this shoot!

The dessert table is so inviting! Its multiple, cheerful treats were surrounded by bright floral and fruit. Two Sweets Bake Shop provided the various cookies and adorable cupcakes and Party Flavors Custom Cakes created the amazingly detailed cake. The citrus-colored cloth linens for the dessert table and cocktail station were supplied by Cloth Connection.

For the drink station, created by Two Sweets Bake Shop, we designed a custom sign for the signature drinks: mimosas and rum runners! The Florida citrus-themed bar also included orange liqueur, limoncello, small batch Florida rum, and (of course) fresh-squeezed local orange juice.

How gorgeous is this guest table? Oranges, lemons and limes were mixed into matching floral arrangements by Bluegrass Chic. Wildflower Linens supplied the bright white table cloth with floral cut-outs and custom leather chair back covers for A Chair Affair‘s white chiavari chairs. Our menu card was tied around the sunny yellow napkins, and our table card used a citrus-inspired name.

Jars of orange marmalade served double duty as favors and escort cards, thanks to the labels we created. Each label paired a guest’s name with their table name and was adorned with the orange blossom image.
