Inspired by the ballroom scene in the movie Labyrinth, which is a forever favorite for many of us, this project was extra-special for many of the vendors involved. For this styled shoot designed by Anna Christine Events, feminine was paired with masculine: flowing fabrics paired with tooled leather, lush florals paired with old clocks and weathered metals. With Claire Pacelli Photography behind the camera, every detail of this whimsical styled shoot at Up the Creek Farms was captured to perfection.

The wedding invitation we designed for this styled shoot was a scalloped-edge gatefold invitation printed with a custom pattern in shades of cream, warm brown and sepia. A satin ribbon wrapped around to close the invitation with a custom wax seal. These were housed in a brown silk gatefold box with a rich brown ribbon and a bronze brooch embellishment.

Inside the ballroom, table settings of glitter glass chargers from A Chair Affair were topped with wedding menus printed in a vintage patina, embellished with a wide, peach-colored fabric ribbon then layered with crisscrossing ivory ribbon. Next to each setting, scroll-like place cards were wrapped around fresh peaches (in the film, a poisoned peach transported Sarah to Jareth’s whimsical Ballroom in one bite). We also created round escort cards, that rested inside glass bubbles atop lush green mosses, and hung in front of free-standing rustic doors.

The bride dazzled in a gorgeous gown from LA Bridal Boutique reminiscent of Sarah’s grand ballgown, and wore lengths of ribbon in her hair; the groom was sleek and sophisticated in a sharp gray tuxedo from Absolutely Fitting. Fabulous floral accents of pale pinks and whites designed by Flowers by Lesley added hints of romance, complementing the stunning 5-tiered pale pink and white wedding cake fit for a Goblin King and Queen by Everything Cake. A stunning dessert buffet with the most decadent of treats was created by Two Sweets Bake Shop.

We were so happy to see that the shoot was featured on Every Last Detail!

What a pleasure and an honor it was to work with Katie and Austin to create their custom wedding invitations!  Katie is a colleague – a phenomenal wedding stylist with an amazing sense of style and full of creativity.  And apparently, so are many other members of her family!  When I met with Katie for our design consultation, one of the first things she asked me was whether I’d be able to use a painting created by her sister for the invitation.  Sure!  What could possibly be more personal than that?!  We were thrilled to work with her sister’s artwork, and add a few subtle touches of our own to create an unbelievably personal and meaningful invitation for this incredible couple.

Katie and Austin showcased their eclectic style during their outdoor wedding at Isola Farms.  We printed their invitations and table numbers on wood, which complemented the “Junk Gypsy” style that Katie had imagined.

RW Events, LLC (where Katie works as a stylist) did a fantastic job planning Katie and Austin’s celebration with Amalie Orrange Photography behind the camera to capture their day. The Sugar Suite crafted a stunning 5-tiered wedding cake draped with pink, yellow and orange flowers to flow with the impeccable floral arrangements provided by Flowers by Lesley. With dancing and photo booth sessions during the reception, there was no shortage of fun, props, or excitement for Katie, Austin and their loved ones.

We absolutely loved creating your custom stationery, Katie and Austin! Thank you for choosing us and allowing your creativity to inspire us!

Whether it is a special event or wedding, we love creating custom stationery and paper goods that will be a part of amazing memories that will last a lifetime. Contact us today to schedule a custom design consultation for your celebration.

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.

Contact us if you loved the look of this styled shoot. We can’t wait to hear your ideas and make wedding invitations and paper goods that are uniquely YOU!

Modern romance came alive at Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club in this stunning photo shoot by RW Events. The photos by Victoria Angela Photography came out absolutely beautifully and brought to life every detail from the shoot.

We designed the invitations, menus, and escort cards using a combination of modern serif and handwritten-style scripts done in gold foil on mint colored stock. The invitations featured a gold foil quatrefoil grid on the front of the folder and a glittery gold border around the inside. The menus were created in the popular round die-cut shape. We went took a simple approach to the escort cards, repeating the circular shape from the menus to create small disks with the important information for guests to find their seats.

Everything from the bouquet to the candlelit floral centerpieces by Flowers by Lesley felt simply elegant. Inside the golf club, mint green uplighting was used to accent and color to the reception room. Golden decor, from the chiavari chairs to the cake to the table accents, was tempered by the ivory linens and arrangements of white hydrangeas with cream-colored roses.

We were honored to be a part of this gorgeous shoot. Thank you to all the incredible event professionals who contributed their talents:

Amanda and Brett’s rustic March wedding was beautifully charming! The bride and groom said “I Do” at Amanda’s parents’ Winter Park home, which was transformed into a dream garden.  Amanda had a fantastic vision of creating a “farmer’s market” in the backyard of her childhood home.  When the utterly amazing Christy Subler of Anna Christine Events started explaining their concept and the plan for their wedding day, I don’t think I could have been more excited!  Amanda wanted to spotlight natural goodness of all kinds, from earth-grown goodies to the little creatures that you find hanging around gardens, like birds, caterpillars, snails, and grasshoppers (we even had a conversation about earthworms!).  All of the paper goods that we created for their wedding were loaded with botanical-style fruits and vegetables.

Anna Christine Events designed Amanda’s outdoor wonderland to be “straight from the farmers’ market” using wooden baskets, mason jars and tin pails filled with a bright assortment of flowers. The incredible florals, including bird-cage garden centerpieces bursting with lush English garden roses, succulents, and colorful flowers, and moss-covered risers were created by Flowers by Lesley.  Lesley always blows us away!

We started at the very beginning with Amanda and Brett by designing their postcard-style save-the-dates with engagement photo (shot in a vegetable garden, no less!) by Sarah Bray Photography and featuring delicious-looking strawberries.  Their custom pocketfold wedding invitation followed many months later, and was printed on a speckled creamy paper paired with custom moss-green lattice and featuring a folder of dark brown woodgrain-embossed paper.  My favorite part of Amanda and Brett’s invitation?  It’s a tie between the row of lettuces on their information panel and the mushrooms on their response postcard!

At the wedding we created a directional sign leading guests from the valet drop to the ceremony, and an aisle sign (“Love grows here”).  Guests were then handed gorgeous wedding programs framed with luscious flowers, fruits, and veggies, and introducing some garden creatures–snails, crickets, and sparrows!  After the ceremony, guests were directed to their tables with our seed-packet escort cards: kraft brown envelopes printed on the front with the name and artwork of a fruit, vegetable, or flower that designated their table assignment, and containing real packets of seeds inside.  The artwork for this display was time-consuming and challenging, but the payoff was huge!

Mini bright blue baskets of fresh strawberries awaited guests at their seats with favor tags thanking them “berry much” for attending.  The showstopper of our paper goods, I believe, was brainchild of Anna Christine Events. They asked us to create menu placemats containing Amanda and Brett’s vegan and vegetarian buffet station descriptions.  Arthur’s Catering pulled out all the stops with four (yes, four)  vegan/vegetarian stations: Tex-Mex, Indian, Italian, and Asian.  (Hilarious aside: Amanda’s dad jokingly threatened to hire a hot dog cart to appease the meat-eaters in attendance!).  And in true backyard-wedding style, Amanda, her mom, and other family members created a crazy-huge dessert display filled with 18 types of cakes, truffles, cupcakes, and cookies, with a crowning centerpiece of a vegan wedding cake by Baby Cakes.  We happily created the dessert buffet tags for this amazing display, as well as a pennant banner inviting guests to visit the treats tent, and other vignette signage (Amanda’s dad had a Cigar Grotto – another spectacular personal touch).

We fell in love with absolutely every detail from Amanda and Brett’s wedding, and it was a great honor to be a part of this incredible day.  We greatly enjoyed getting to know this couple!  Here’s their list of truly amazing vendors:

Alana and Jonathan shared a magical day planned by Anna Christine Events. The couple was married at Florida Southern College to honor the school where they met and fell in love. Their ceremony was followed by a brunch reception, and then they had a second reception later that night! Their Alice in Wonderland-inspired reception that evening at Rosen Shingle Creek was filled with with whimsical stationery and decor. We had the pleasure of designing all of the day-of stationery based on the invitation design by Invitations by Design. Brandy and Beau Photography and Sandra Johnson Photography captured beautiful images from the event.
