Real Wedding: Rita & Franck’s Sapphire Blue and Lemon Yellow Wedding

Rita and Franck’s wedding day in October at LPGA International was full of special touches and attention to detail.  As the couple are French, as were some of the guests, they chose lots of classic French detail, such as a fleur de lis motif, a croquembouche wedding cake, and even a Bible verse printed in French on the invitations being sent to French-speaking guests.

Rita and Franck chose a color palette of lemon yellow, used for flowers and decor, against a sapphire blue backdrop.  I love Rita’s decision to incorporate real lemons and lemon halves into the centerpieces and decor.  I’m betting their reception smelled wonderful!  They worked in the fleur de lis motif where possible, on printed paper goods and on the seating card holders.

A croquembouche was served as the wedding cake, as is traditional for French weddings.  Gorgeous all by itself – created by mounding profiteroles into a cone and dripping it with sweets – it was made even more spectacular with flowers and curled lemon-zest decoration worked into the tower.  Rita also gave Franck a sweet surprise with a really lovely groom’s cake decorated with the Arsenal Football Club logo in fondant!

Dogwood Blossom Stationery created a fairly traditional, layered wedding invitation for Rita and Franck.  Rita chose pearlized dark sapphire blue paper paired with matte lemon  yellow.  We accented the invitation with a small fleur de lis  in the perfect middle.  Square table numbers were created using the same papers and motif for the couple’s reception.  And because Rita and Franck wanted to give something special and personalized for their wedding favors, we created custom recipe cards using the couple’s favorite family recipes.

What a beautiful wedding!  Thank you, Rita and Franck, for letting me be part of you day!
