{Inspiration} Pink and Gray Southern Glam at Horse Stamp Inn

Custom ceremony paper goods by Dogwood Blossom Stationery

We’re taking you back almost two years ago to this glamorous Southern wedding inspiration shoot. Flaire Weddings & Events created the striking concept of hot pink, gray, and silver against the rustic atmosphere of the Horse Stamp Inn. We were proud to be a part of this shoot–it was even featured in Every Last Detail! Keep reading to see our lovely stationery and more beautiful photos by Jenn Hopkins Photography.

In true Southern fashion, the bride wore leather cowboy boots under her one-shoulder gown from The Wedding Loft. Her softly romantic makeup was courtesy of makeup artist Paulina Perez.

Our stationery suite used blush pink, gray, and hot pink details. We designed custom invitations using a shantung satin backer board in blush pink, along with ceremony programs, escort cards, table numbers, and menus for this farm-meets-glamour wedding. By using a flourished script and classic French motifs like the fleur-de-lis and quatrefoil, our paper goods brought a very contemporary feel to the barn setting. The quatrefoil pattern that bordered the invitation and all of the paper goods were reflected again in the table runner and on the cake by For the Love of Cake.

Flaire Weddings & Events designed all of the floral for the shoot, from the bouquet to the centerpieces to this custom monogrammed focal point. If you take a closer look, you’ll see that they used blooms of different shades of pink woven into chicken wire. Now THAT’S country glam!

We created menus to wrap around the shimmering pink napkins. The table top used many interesting combinations of laid-back country and high-end glam: silver beaded chargers from Beachview Rentals, mason jars as drinking glasses, a vintage silver tray, and contemporary vases. Our table numbers kept the eclectic feel by combining a classic-looking font with a more modern one.

{Inspiration} A Candy Land Wedding

Still searching for the perfect wedding theme that says colorful, fun, and personality all in one? Why not take a walk down memory lane? Or more specifically, a walk through Candy Land.

Recently, Dogwood Blossom Stationery worked with Flaire Weddings and Events at Winterbourne on the St. Johns to bring to life with the help and amazing talents of  Corinna Hoffman Photography an exciting and fresh Candy Land theme that’s sure to get your guests talking for years to come.

The wedding invitations stand out in a blush and spearmint striped pattern just like the popular mints—and are embellished with satin ribbon and playfully romantic font to evoke both delicacy and a sense of royalty.

After all, the bride and groom aren’t just any newlywed couple in the world of Candy Land! They have respectively become the board game’s popular royal characters: Queen Frostine and King Kandy, as designated by their festive chair back signs, which are embellished with satin blush bows and outlined in the colorful Candy Land pathway players traverse in the game.

But it doesn’t end there. Guests are actively involved in the Candy Land theme as well. Escort cards are transformed into lollipops, each bearing the guest’s name as well as the Candy Land location their table represents: Candy Castle, Lollipop Woods, Gumdrop Mountains, Peppermint Forest, and more.  Custom motifs were created for each magical location and reflected on the table numbers as well.  It’s a refreshing way to revamp traditional table numbers and bring the excitement back into celebrating your wedding!

Once at their table, guests are greeted with a palette of delightful pastels that effectively transform them into a whole new world, thanks to the imaginary design concepts of Flaire Weddings and Events.

Lastly, what’s a wedding reception without drinks and desserts? Here, our coordinating peppermint signature drink signage announces Mr. Mint’s Mojito’s, complete with martinis that have gumdrops for stirrers.

The dessert buffet adds one final splash of color (and sweetness) for this Candy Land wedding. Delicious cupcakes by Sweet By Holly and matching confectionaries made this candy bar a beautiful compliment to  end the wedding on a sweet note.

The aisle runner designed by  Blossoms & Accents, Inc. took buckets, upon buckets of rose petals to re-create the magical and vibrant look seen here:
