Earlier in the year, we were thrilled to be a part of a Southern glam styled shoot to promote the grand opening of the new Ocoee Lakeshore Center. We worked alongside talented event professionals, including Bumby Photography and perfectionist planner, Anna Christine Events, showcasing Southern sophistication in the ‘Sweet as Tea, Meant to Be’ theme. The array of soft green, buttery yellow, vibrant peach, white and gold gave the shoot a welcoming atmosphere.

The romantic color palette flowed through our custom invitations and paper goods as we used a folding invitation with a custom, delicate vintage floral pattern on the interior, and a gold foiled monogram on the exterior.  Response enclosures were contained in a moss green satin ribbon-lined enclosure band with die cut monogram.

We carried the exquisite shape of the invitation over to the exclusively designed dinner menus that were nestled into a pocket of white satin on each gold charger from A Chair Affair. Adding a pale green border and a floral element, they matched the place cards that were attached to tea bags with complimenting ribbon. The table numbers were gold foil with a chic vine detail on white card stock.

For the drink and hors d’oeuvres menus, we layered the Southern selections on top of the floral card stock carried over from the inside of the invitations, giving a lovely framed effect to the display. The custom made Arnold Palmer take-home bar favors detailed the recipe for the Southern cocktail.

From the floral arrangements in white milk glass vases with a hand-picked feel, to the intricate detail of the five-tier wedding cake designed by Cut the Cake, to the whimsical flair of the ‘Meant to Be’ pennant-style banner, we loved the Southern elegance of this shoot!

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.

Thank you to all of the amazing wedding professionals that teamed up to make this Southern-styled evening a success:

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.

What a great collaboration! Bluegrass Chic designed a reception table for a Southern tea and Two Sweets Bake Shop designed an accompanying bourbon bar-inspired dessert buffet.  So many elements enhanced the Southern equestrian style, including vintage china, lace details, an abundance of flowers, and (of course) a horse motif!  Thanks to Allan Jay Images for capturing the look so beautifully!

Our paper goods featured horseshoe and wildflower artwork to bring the South into our work. We used earth tones to keep the look classic, such as deep green, sage, burgundy and goldenrod. The menus were layered onto pale metallic gold stock and accented by an emblem with the couple’s monogram surrounded by a golden yellow horseshoe with burgundy flowers. We also made a sign to welcome guests to the celebration, which used the same artwork as the menu but included the written theme of the day: “Tea for Two, and Two for Tea.”

On the table, we carried the traditional Southern design elements to several accent pieces. Guests knew that they were in the correct seat by our unique place cards: teabag tags printed with their names! Also at each place setting was a favor of jarred lemon curd, for which we made circular tags with the wildflower artwork. For a fun touch, each guest also had access to a bell with our tag that read, “Ring for Kisses!” Both the favor tags and the bell tags were tied with a silky sage green ribbon to coordinate with the color palette.

The dessert buffet by Two Sweets Bake Shop featured our sign announcing that the buffet would open after brunch. This time, we chose to accent the sign with the couple’s full monogram flanked by wildflowers instead of using the horseshoe and single letter monogram. Be assured–the dessert table had plenty of horses! We created signage for each sweet treat that had sophisticated horse artwork at the top. Plus, the table was styled with horse statues and riding paraphernalia intermingled with the candy and cupcakes.

If you love the diversity of our work, make sure that you like our Facebook to follow all our projects.

We loved creating this look with some of our favorite wedding professionals! Thank you all:

Imagine a wedding on Halloween…what do you envision? Instead of the commercially prevalent orange pumpkins and witches riding on brooms, a more glamorous route was taken for this styled shoot. We were so excited to work with some of our favorite event professionals, including Lee Forrest Design, Two Sweets Bake Shop, Everything Cake, and Bumby Photography, at an amazing location–the stunningly dramatic Grand Bohemian Hotel Orlando.  Imagined by Two Sweets Bake Shop and designed in partnership with Mobella Events, this team of wedding pros produced a romantic look full of candles and decadence with touches of whimsy here and there.

Rich purples and vivid red were used as accent colors to the inky black and gleaming gold that took center stage for the color scheme. Both the invitations and the menus used gold foil on black stock. The invitation was layered on top of gold metallic and black stock with a thick black satin ribbon tied in a bow on one side. Gold foil was used to create an ornate frame-like border around the playful text: telling guests that “the wicked pleasure of your company is requested” and reiterating the slightly morbid sentiment “’til death do us part.” Branch-like artwork capped the top and bottom of the invitation, and a tiny bat was placed at the bottom for a classic Halloween touch.

The same artwork from the invitation was used on the black menus. The round shape of the menus was created by die-cut to fit perfectly on the vintage china from A Chair Affair. We assumed that the cake from Everything Cake was a “death by chocolate” cake! Speaking of decadence, Two Sweets Bake Shop outdid themselves with the amazing dessert buffet. We created tent cards for the various sweets (also gold foil on black) that warned guests: “antidote as yet unavailable.” Bats and skulls and cross bones added a decorative accent that brought back the Halloween theme.

We channeled classic Halloween decor when creating the escort card table. Using our new printed wood technique, we created “tombstones” for the escort cards along with a sign for guests to “find your resting place.” Each card read “here lies,” then the guest’s name, the their “plot” number (the table number). The cards were placed amongst moss for full graveyard effect. The guests knew they were at the correct table when they found the coordinating printed wood table numbers listing their plot number.

We loved that this shoot was so detailed! From the tiny spider on our escort card table sign, to the rosary cross in the bride’s bouquet, to the Day of the Dead figurines on the dessert buffet, everything was so well thought out. We could definitely see this styled shoot translating into a real-life wedding full of beautifully personal touches.

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.

Last year, we were a part of this gorgeous garden-inspired styled shoot that looks like it was straight out of a fairy tale! The Garden Chateau‘s classic interior and atmospheric grounds set the stage for the planning team at Anna Christine Events to design a romantic wedding scene. Bright pinks, shimmering gold, and warm wood tones set a color palette that was dreamy and timeless. Wings of Glory Photography did a fantastic job capturing all of the details. Looks like others agreed: we were beyond thrilled that Beautiful Bride Magazine not only published the shoot, but featured it on their cover!

We used floral artwork on our invitations and paper goods to emphasize the garden theme of the shoot. Blooms in various shades of pink and red with bright greenery burst from the corners of our designs. The invitations were mounted on petal pink stock and backed by a sophisticated gold stripe with coordinating envelopes lined with the striped paper. A calligraphy-like script in metallic gold was used to write the couple’s names. We used this romantic script throughout our paper goods with other important text printed in a classic serif font.

Our double-sided keepsake menu cards featured the couple’s names, the venue, and the date on one side. The gold stripe pattern created a “picket fence” design that bordered the bottom of the card. On the reverse, the courses of the meal were written in metallic gold. Of course, pink flowers graced both sides of the cards.

We created other fantastic paper goods for the shoot, including escort cards, table number signs, chair back signs for the head table, and a “This Way to the Wedding” sign. To keep a consistent look, we continued the font styles, metallic gold, and floral designs throughout the stationery suite. Our escort cards had a little extra detail that made them that much more special: the inside of the tent cards featured the gold stripe pattern seen on the invitations.

Anna Christine Events created two different ceremonies and two different receptions: one indoor and one outdoor of each! We especially liked the outdoor reception, with its long farm tables from A Chair Affair, glowing candelabras, and market string lights. Of course, a garden-themed wedding wouldn’t be complete without an abundance of flowers! Flowers By Lesley did an absolutely amazing job creating a luscious environment, decorating everything from the banisters of the grand staircase, to a sweet tree swing, to the wedding arch. The candelabras were clustered with blossoms and the cake by Iva’s Cake Place looked divine with Lesley’s floral touches. The bride carried a beautiful beautiful bouquet of pink garden roses and cascading greenery, which was also seen gracing her blonde ringlets.
