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?

When we first met with Mackenzie, Billy, their adorable brand-new puppy Buddy (who is now probably bigger than me!), and Mackenzie’s mom, we knew this was going to be a super fun wedding!  Mackenzie loved whimsical scripts and chalkboard-style layouts, with shabby chic florals, heart-and-arrow motifs, and soft mint, peach, blush, and coral.  We started by creating and mailing their photo save-the-date, using their gorgeous engagement photo by super-talented Best Photography, and then followed several months later with their wedding invitations.

Their wedding invitation used a custom presentation of a landscape-orientation folder in slate gray, with the invitation mounted on the front.  We used layers of mint and custom pinstripes to add whimsy and depth, and created a custom heart-and-arrow monogram as part of their wedding branding that we used across their day-of papers, signage and even on the dessert buffet tags.  Once the invitation folder was opened, a wide lace enclosure band affixed with a custom monogram plate contained their response enclosure, and an information panel was permanently attached to the inside of the folder.  Since Mackenzie and Billy had two wedding ceremonies in which different guests were invited to each, we actually created and mailed two versions of the invitation – each containing unique wording for the ceremony, reception, and travel information.

The place-setting menus and other day-of papers were designed to reflect the style and motifs we used on Mackenzie and Billy’s wedding invitations.  We enjoyed working with the RW Events styling team to create escort cards that could be strung along their vintage painted shutters.  We love collaborating with amazing other wedding pros to achieve results as stunning as this escort card display!

Mackenzie and Billy’s Bella Collina wedding was super adorable and executed flawlessly by Blush by Brandee GaarRW Events incorporated some amazing vintage vignettes – one of our favorites being the lemonade stand.  Lee James Floral Designs did a stunning job with the ceremony and reception florals – we especially love Mackenzie’s beautiful bouquet!  Two Sweets Bake Shop created an incredible and extensive dessert buffet (including amazing and unparalled Krispy Kreme Bread Puddings).

We really enjoyed working with Mackenzie, Billy, and their families, and are so happy to have been part of their beautiful day.  Thank you Mackenzie and Billy, and best wishes for an incredible life together!

You’ve heard of the “first look” when a couple sees each other for the first time before their ceremony.  Well, here’s a “first look” of a couple seeing their dessert buffet, created by the amazing Two Sweets Bake Shop, for the first time prior to their reception.  Barb and Steve were married at the jaw-dropping Grand Bohemian Hotel, and I do believe their faces in the photos say it all!  This is why we love working with Two Sweets–to create custom signage and buffet tags for their incredible dessert displays–because the reaction is priceless.

It was a moment that Barb can now relive forever thanks to Castaldo Studios, who did an amazing job capturing every sweet moment from this wedding reception! All of the details really made this buffet into a show-stopper: from the sumptuous floral designs by Bluegrass Chic, to the wine barrels and wooden tables from A Chair Affair, to the gorgeous petite cake by The Sugar Suite. Everything was expertly planned and pulled together beautifully by Swanky I Do’s, who helped the bride design the buffet with more that 22 sweet treats!

We designed the buffet tags and signage to reflect the antique style of Barb and Steve’s invitation.  We thought artwork that mimicked vintage perfume bottle labels would be a perfect fit for such an elegant vintage display.  We printed these pieces on creamy paper in a sepia tone, and then layered them onto bronze tent cards.

Congrats to Barb and Steve and best wishes for a wonderful life together!  And thank you to Two Sweets Bake Shop for having us create these custom pieces for such a lovely couple!
