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.

We were so pleased to be a part of this gorgeous photo shoot that was featured on Munaluchi Bride!  Captured by ArtPhotoSoul, the golden affair added a shimmering glow to the landscape of the beautiful Grove House at Cypress Grove. RW Events coordinated all of the details that created this modern Southern look, from the dazzling cakes by Wendy Woo Cakes to the lush floral work by Windermere Flowers and Gifts.

Gold and white were the main colors of the day, with accents of peach. The tablescape featured traditional elements, such as the white-washed wooden table, mixed with modern pieces, like the acrylic ghost chairs and white leather lounge furniture. This combination of modern and classic Southern looks continued throughout the decor and paper goods.

The invitations and paper goods bore classic typography to match the elegance of the event. We used metallic golden peach ink printed on white paper to coordinate with the color scheme. The envelopes and menu backings were a warm, weathered metallic gold. We kept all of the paper goods clean-looking with few embellishments to create a modern feel.

 We couldn’t help but reminisce when we stumbled upon some photographs from the Cypress Grove Networker event in August of 2013, and we’re so excited to share them with you! The event was designed and produced by Tamuel Cowart and her hardworking team of planners at RW Events. The networking event was styled with southern hospitality in mind; Big City Catering incorporated delicious comfort food that helped every guest get in the mood to mingle! Cypress Grove, Dogwood Blossom Stationery, Brandy & Baeu Photography, Inviation Design

We had the pleasure of designing invitations, escort cards, table menus, and sponsor signs with southern comfort in mind. We used burlap, plum jewel tones, light yellow chevron, and floral illustrations in our stationery for this event. The menus looked superb in this dining area, which was overflowing with sunflowers and greenery. Florists for this event included Windermere Flowers, Greenery Production, and Raining Roses. Brandy & Beau Photography captured beautiful images.
