We were super excited to work with Lauren and Alex to create the stationery for their stunningly gorgeous black, white and gold wedding at the luxurious Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate. Blush by Brandee Gaar crafted a beautiful and personal affair with a fantastic team of wedding pros.

To keep with the elegant but preppy-chic vibe, we designed their stationery based on an inspiration Lauren provided, using a classic black- and white-striped pattern, framed with gold accents and featuring charming details like arrows and XO designs. The invitation was printed on ultra-heavy white stock with black on reverse printed with a gold XO motif. We used a black inner envelope with striped envelope liner and a white outer envelope addressed in black.

Guests were guided to their seats with the help of the seating chart designed by Chalk Shop Events. In collaboration for the display, we designed simple square white escort cards which Chalk Shop mounted on two large black boards. Thin white ribbon ran behind the cards, creating a striped effect.  We love participating in vendor collaborations like these!

Lauren had the idea to use adorable and super fun “cootie catchers” at the place settings.  There were four versions of questions and answers – all quirky facts about Lauren and Alex – so that a whole table of guests could join in the fun together. For dessert, Two Sweets Bake Shop created a brilliant milk and cookie display (!), with extra treats that were laid out on a buffet with a stunning 4-tiered white and black wedding cake with white floral accents created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes. In another fantastic vendor collaboration, we created the dessert buffet signage, which included a framed black and white striped sign with the couple’s names and black tent cards with striped border to label each delicious dessert.

Perhaps our favorite paper goods, though, were those created to welcome their out-of-town guests.  We assisted Lauren and Alex with their amazing welcome boxes – stuffed to the brim with goodies that were meaningful to them and/or just plain fun or delicious.  To the black gable boxes, we added a schedule of events, a “Do Not Disturb” door hanger and labels containing their custom monogram.

The Hons Photography captured every gorgeous detail, from the beautiful white floral centerpieces and accents by Lee James Floral Designs to the fun chalkboard photo backdrop and mirror table numbers provided by Chalk Shop Events.

We were honored to be a part of your amazing celebration, Lauren and Alex! Thanks for choosing to work with us to create your custom wedding stationery!

Mackenzie & Beau Cypress Grove Estate Wedding Orlando, Florida from Paul Duhon on Vimeo.

Epic “Father/ Daughter dance” at Cypress Grove Estate House Orlando, Florida from Paul Duhon on Vimeo.

At our first meeting with Mackenzie we asked her to describe her wedding inspiration.  Although this is not an exact quote, the list went something like this: Alaska, Ireland, pubs, old wood, and whiskey barrels.  What a thrilling moment that was, because instantly I knew this project was going to be fun, creatively challenging, and totally different.  This couple has a long list of places traveled and experiences had – they were a blast to work with and were amazing creative collaborators.  Mackenzie and Beau had a gorgeous wedding day at Cypress Grove Estate House, photographed by The Canovas Photography with floral by Lee James Floral DesignsBlush by Brandee Gaar did a fabulous job bringing together all the details that made Mackenzie and Beau’s wedding personal, sophisticated, and an incredibly memorable good time.

The colors of the day included navy blue and red, creams and champagnes, powder blues, earthy greens, and wood-tone browns.  Taking the whiskey barrel inspiration to heart, we set the tone with printed wood save-the-dates.  Designed to mimic a whiskey label, we printed in blue, red, and gold on Cherry wood and accented the save-the-date with a thin navy satin ribbon. Their wedding invitations followed next with a slightly more refined look.  These arrived in a bronzed wood-embossed folder accented with a navy blue satin ribbon and scarlet red wax seal impressed with their custom monogram.  Inside the folder, we printed navy-on-navy to achieve a subtle but dramatic look.  This tone-on-tone look was mimicked on their envelope liners as well.

Mackenzie and Beau wanted to include personal touches in their wedding, and had many sentimental ideas. Instead of table numbers, the couple’s favorite travel destinations, such as Ireland, Alaska, and tropical hot spots, were used for the table assignments.  We created a unique motif for each table depicting the locale and also adding in memorable elements – iguanas on rocks or waterfalls loaded with frogs – and printed a conversation-starting story at the bottom of each.  To direct guests to their tables, we created a slatted wooden board and affixed lists of tables, each list adorned with leftover wax seals from the invitations.

Their custom monogram was used throughout the wedding; Blush by Brandee Gaar even arranged to have their custom monogram painted on the wooden corn hole boards that guests played for a little outdoor fun.

Even though the wedding had a sophisticated outdoor feel, the reception turned out to be quite the party! Thanks to Messina Productions, the night was punctuated by fantastic choreographed dancing, streamer cannons, and a grand finale of fireworks over the lake.

Congratulations, Mackenzie and Beau! We are so happy that we could be part of your day!

Amy and Brandon’s Bella Collina wedding, planned and designed by the amazing Blush by Brandee Gaar, was one where literally every single detail was thought of, and each and every one of their nearly 200 guests were treated to personal delights throughout the incredible night.  We worked very closely with the bride and her mom to develop ultra-memorable paper goods that would make each guest feel welcome.

Amy was inspired by her favorite movie, Ever After, and also wanted to invoke some of the baroque style of their venue, so we incorporated a regal theme when creating their custom wedding papers. We used caramel-colored baroque flourishes and custom monogram artwork for their unique folding wedding invitations, table numbers, chair signs and customized wedding passport. We also loved creating rose gold, stitched-side CD cases that were personalized with each guest’s name and inserted with liner notes and CDs with a compilation of important love songs for Amy and Brandon. These CD sleeves doubled as wedding favors and guests’ place cards (and secretly also had a role as a meal indicator icon so servers could serve the appropriate entree, too!). Our custom monogram was used in many aspects of this breathtaking wedding, even being printed on throw pillows and projected onto the reflection pool for cocktail hour.

Amy and Brandon’s custom wedding passport was our favorite paper for this wedding.  These passports were given to guests as they arrived to the venue, and were customized on every page for each individual guest for a truly personal keepsake that functioned as a guide to take them through the night.  On the cover, we printed the guest’s name.  Amy and Brandon wrote a personal note to every single wedding guest, which we printed on the inside cover of their passport.  On the following pages were the schedule of events, ceremony program, the guest’s table assignment and personalized menu.  How special would you feel receiving a passport like this as a guest at a wedding?!

Prior to the wedding, out-of-town guests were greeted with incredible welcome boxes filled with yummy treats and a Bloody Mary hangover kit.  We were happy to work with this couple to create packaging, welcome letters, and door hangers for those ultra-custom welcome boxes.

Concept Photography and Shutterlife Productions documented every timeless moment of this incredible event. The newlyweds sealed their vows with a kiss underneath a gorgeous pink and white floral arch, complete with a chandelier, designed by Lee James Floral Designs. As day turned into night, Amy, Brandon and their guests danced underneath floating chandeliers from Kaleidoscope Event Lighting to the musically talented live band, The Buzzcats.  The finishing touch to an enchanting evening was the gorgeous 6-tiered wedding cake with blush pink sugar flower accents created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes.

Thank you for choosing to work with us to design and create your custom wedding invitations and paper goods, Amy and Brandon! We had a blast designing and producing your custom stationery, and we wish you the happiest of happy ever afters!

Stephanie and Mark’s wedding reception at Casa Feliz was a gorgeous affair with rustic charm meeting Middle Eastern influence.  When we first met Stephanie to start working on save-the-dates, she said she wanted simple but elegant, with textures, and possibly either lace or a Moroccan pattern.  She wanted to use colors that reflected the venue, Casa Feliz, so we went with a medium teal color to mimic the awnings of the historic home, and considered other colors like old, washed-out brick and clay colors.  After seeing all the custom samples, Stephanie opted for a save-the-date with a Moroccan-style lattice pattern, using a traditional layout and a custom wedding date logo.

Moving to the invitations, Stephanie and Mark chose to keep the wedding date logo and Moroccan pattern, but muted the blue color to a very faded and more green color.  This made their letterpress invitation much more formal.  We incorporated wide, scalloped white lace in their invitation ensemble.  The letterpress on this invitation was stunning, and gave so much texture to their wedding logo.

For day-of papers, we mixed the colors and styling of both the save-the-date and the invitations.  For the ceremony programs, we kept the muted colors of their invitation and designed a folding program with a heavy textured cover and white interior pages, tied with white grosgrain ribbon.  For menus, we mimicked the save-the-dates almost exactly, and went with the more vibrant teal to reflect the gorgeous colors at the reception.  For signage and the seating chart, we did the same, mixing papers, textures, and colors to provide a cohesive look from start to finish.

Blush by Brandee Gaar effortlessly brought Stephanie and Mark’s vision of a Moroccan oasis together with Andi Mans Photography expertly capturing every beautiful moment. The happy couple and their loved ones dined underneath a clear tent from Kirby Rentals on gorgeous rustic-style tables and chairs provided by A Chair Affair with beautiful pink and white floral centerpieces from Lee James Floral Designs. One of our favorite design elements of the evening was the stunning and delicious 3-tiered wedding cake with lace detailing and pale pink floral accents created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes.

We were so thrilled to create personalized custom stationery menus and table numbers for you, Stephanie and Mark!  It was so much fun working with you!

Earlier in the year, we were thrilled to be a part of a Southern glam styled shoot to promote the grand opening of the new Ocoee Lakeshore Center. We worked alongside talented event professionals, including Bumby Photography and perfectionist planner, Anna Christine Events, showcasing Southern sophistication in the ‘Sweet as Tea, Meant to Be’ theme. The array of soft green, buttery yellow, vibrant peach, white and gold gave the shoot a welcoming atmosphere.

The romantic color palette flowed through our custom invitations and paper goods as we used a folding invitation with a custom, delicate vintage floral pattern on the interior, and a gold foiled monogram on the exterior.  Response enclosures were contained in a moss green satin ribbon-lined enclosure band with die cut monogram.

We carried the exquisite shape of the invitation over to the exclusively designed dinner menus that were nestled into a pocket of white satin on each gold charger from A Chair Affair. Adding a pale green border and a floral element, they matched the place cards that were attached to tea bags with complimenting ribbon. The table numbers were gold foil with a chic vine detail on white card stock.

For the drink and hors d’oeuvres menus, we layered the Southern selections on top of the floral card stock carried over from the inside of the invitations, giving a lovely framed effect to the display. The custom made Arnold Palmer take-home bar favors detailed the recipe for the Southern cocktail.

From the floral arrangements in white milk glass vases with a hand-picked feel, to the intricate detail of the five-tier wedding cake designed by Cut the Cake, to the whimsical flair of the ‘Meant to Be’ pennant-style banner, we loved the Southern elegance of this shoot!

Event Industry marketing by Beat Creative, ribbon cutting

Last month we had the pleasure of creating designs for the Event Industry Marketing by BeatCreative’s ribbon cutting ceremony. Christy from Anna Christine Events coordinated this exciting office grand opening event for our friend and colleague, Michelle. Bright, cheerful pops of hot pink and orange were included in every aspect of this event from the invitations to the delicious dessert table.

As a part of the ribbon cutting ceremony, guests took turns signing the ribbon before Michelle cut it in half with her giant scissors. To add to the excitement, confetti cannons filled with orange and pink paper shot into the sky and guests released balloons into the wind. The remainder of the event was spent socializing, and enjoying the amazing catering, like the nitrogen ice cream food truck from Three 2 Oh!

The invitation was the first design we created for Michelle, and became the theme for me to use on the additional paper goods. We were sure to include the “B” logo on all of the stationery because branding is particularly important to this client! Descriptive menu cards were placed on the dessert, food, and drink tables. Foodie Catering provided gourmet watermelon salad, chicken tacos, and Asian meatballs; while Two Sweets Bake Shop and Party Flavors delivered sweet treats for the dessert table.
