Elizabeth and Chad are an amazing and glamorous couple who know how to have fun. Their wedding at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa was truly a five-star affair, and we were thrilled to create custom menus and table numbers for their celebration. For the custom menus, we layered an exquisite black and white striped design onto opulent gold card stock, alternating with black and white text for a unique look. Elizabeth wanted a very traditional, classic look for the table numbers, where we layered white on black.  The table numbers were displayed in beautiful, tall gold table number stands.  It was a beautiful touch to a perfect marriage of glamour and elegance.

An Affair to Remember flawlessly coordinated the happy couple’s special day while Kristen Weaver Photography captured every moment on film. The celebration exuded sophistication with beautiful gold Chiavari chairs from A Chair Affair, Inc., white and crystal floral arrangements designed by Fairbanks Florist and black and white linens and table runners from Over The Top Linen Inc. The crowning piece that tied the décor together was the stunning dance floor provided by That’s A Wrap!, where Elizabeth, Chad and their guests danced the night away with help from the talented DJs from Messina Productions, Inc.

Thank you Elizabeth and Chad for choosing Dogwood Blossom Stationery & Invitation Studio to design and create your custom day-of papers! It was so much fun working with you!

It may be the end of summer here in Florida, but we’re thinking about cooler temperatures. We were honored to be a part of this wintery photo shoot in 2012 with Bumby Photography (then known as Kristina Grimm Photography). This styled shoot was even featured on Style Me Pretty! Make sure you read the feature here.

The look of this shoot reflected the rustic touches of the location, Wekiwa State Park Boys Youth Ranch, with blue tones, silver, and warm white. We created our invitations and paper goods using icy blue and kraft-colored stock with snowflake borders and a pinecone motif.

The invitations were printed on matte white, layered onto cool blue shantung satin, and backed with a textured white stock for a luxe, layered look.  A rustic brown pinecone was featured prominently at the top of the invitation and on the response envelope. A sky blue embroidery pattern was used as a border, and also lined the invitation envelopes. Both the invitation and response card were enclosed in kraft brown envelopes. We added a bow in blue twisted paper eco-twine wrapped around the envelope for a finishing touch.

Pinecones and snowflakes continued through the rest of the paper goods that we made. Our napkin-cuff menus were printed on matte white and layered onto kraft and designed to wrap around the napkins for a pretty presentation. We also created a “wedding this way” sign to direct guests to the ceremony, which was tacked to a pine tree and accented by some of the beautiful floral by Fairbanks Florist. To complete our stationery suite, we made simple white escort cards with each guest’s name printed in a lowercase handwriting script, then layered the cards onto sturdy, textured white tent cards.

The winter wonderland really showed through in the rest of the decor as well. The all-white wedding cake by Everything Cake featured white nonpareils and sparkling white sanding sugar to represent the snow that Floridians can only dream of. Hand-painted appliqués in icy blue and silvery gray completed the stunning four-tier cake. We also especially loved the bouquet! Creamy roses and softly-colored flowers were mixed with silver-toned dusty miller and smoky succulents, all wrapped in burlap and tied with brown string.

Dana and Justin’s Grand Bohemian Hotel wedding, planned by Weddings in the City, was classically glamorous and ultra-romantic.  The bride’s gown and chapel veil were absolute show stoppers! We gathered inspiration from Dana’s grace and the couple’s chic style when we created their invitation, escort cards, and table cards, and signage. Their nuptials, captured beautifully by Scott Craig Photography, seem absolutely timeless.

We created a folding invitation for Dana and Justin with a champagne exterior foiled in shiny gold and accented with light peach Swarovski crystals. The interior of the folder was blush pink printed with a light pink custom micro-floral pattern. Their invitation was die-cut and their enclosures were contained within a custom-printed enclosure band with die-cut monogram. Their escort cards were printed onto blush pink and accented with a single crystal to create a colorful, but still soft, display. 

Dana chose table names based on Italian cities – the country of her heritage – which we then printed in an elegant script and die-cut into shape. We also created a number of signs for the couple to help carry their wedding branding throughout their event – we foiled their “Mr. and Mrs.” sweetheart table sign, created signature drink signs for the bar, and a guest book sign for their very special framed photograph guest book.

We were so excited to collaborate with some of Orlando’s best during our “Whimsical Garden Wedding” photoshoot. The shoot, coordinated by Mobella Events, was featured in September on Bridal MusingsBumby Photography captured every romantic detail.

The shoot was inspired by an English garden tea party. With hues of pink ranging from blush to fuchsia and soft blue touches, Harmony Gardens was brought to life. Our stationery for the day included custom “This way to ‘I Do'” ceremony signs, which looked lovely in vintage-inspired frames. The intimate ceremony space was decorated with precious pink floral arrangements with trailing greenery from Fairbanks Florist and white church pews from A Chair Affair.

The invitation featured a lace-inspired frame border in light gray and a layer of striped paper with light blue diagonal lines. Pink roses, which also decorated the escort cards and table numbers, encircled the calligraphy-style script.

Our escort cards decorated a charming white gate which lead guests to a dessert table equipped with French macaroons, cakes, and tea. Everything Cake did a fabulous job pulling this look together.
