We are so excited to feature this wedding! Melissa and John married in the Dominican Republic in 2012, and their day was pure magic. So much so, that it was featured in Destination Weddings and Honeymoons magazine. We are so grateful to Sara Kauss Photography for sending us these beautiful photos! The Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana provided a lovely seaside venue for the couple’s all-white ceremony and blush pink and silver contemporary, but romantic, reception.
Melissa and John were referred to us by John’s brother, David, and new sister-in-law, Kelly, whose wedding invitations and papers we had created the previous year. Both brothers and their beautiful brides had breathtaking destination weddings, and both couples were incredibly pleasant to work with.
We created Melissa and John’s paper goods to match their modern romantic wedding style. We used white stock with a shimmering overlay of glittery silver organza fabric for the invitations and paper goods. Soft pink was the couple’s accent color, so we printed the decorative touches in this lovely shade. Graphic floral artwork in light pink decorated the invitation and seating charts, and a motif of elegant pink brackets was used throughout the paper pieces. For an added special touch, we accented the invitations with delicate crystals and enclosed them in pink pearlized envelopes.
Some of our favorite pieces from this wedding are the seating charts and the chair back signs. Melissa and John had a large amount of guests, so we printed their table assignments onto five framed seating charts, each designed uniquely to coordinate as a group display. Keeping consistent with the overall look of the paper goods, we included the linear floral pattern and curvy brackets. The curved, frame-style chair back signs gave the sweetest message to the couple’s guests! For the bride’s chair, the sign read “I fell in love with the boy next door,” and the groom’s said the same about “the girl next door.” Just darling!
We were honored that John reviewed us on WeddingWire. Here’s a little bit of what he had to say about working with us:
“One of the things that I thought was worth every single penny we spent, was Dogwood Blossom Stationery. I went to Denise with my ideas and she was able to take what I was imagining and make it a reality. As soon as I told her what I wanted, everything else was taken care of quickly, professionally and beautifully. I couldn’t have asked for a better service and I can’t thank Dogwood Blossom Stationery for making my day that much more special with your attention to detail. I recommend Denise to everybody and anyone who wants a great, beautiful end product without the headache. Thanks for everything!”
Thank you, Melissa and John, for choosing to work with Dogwood Blossom Stationery to create your custom save-the-dates, invitations, and wedding papers!
