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!

Elizabeth and Chad are an amazing and glamorous couple who know how to have fun. Their wedding at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa was truly a five-star affair, and we were thrilled to create custom menus and table numbers for their celebration. For the custom menus, we layered an exquisite black and white striped design onto opulent gold card stock, alternating with black and white text for a unique look. Elizabeth wanted a very traditional, classic look for the table numbers, where we layered white on black.  The table numbers were displayed in beautiful, tall gold table number stands.  It was a beautiful touch to a perfect marriage of glamour and elegance.

An Affair to Remember flawlessly coordinated the happy couple’s special day while Kristen Weaver Photography captured every moment on film. The celebration exuded sophistication with beautiful gold Chiavari chairs from A Chair Affair, Inc., white and crystal floral arrangements designed by Fairbanks Florist and black and white linens and table runners from Over The Top Linen Inc. The crowning piece that tied the décor together was the stunning dance floor provided by That’s A Wrap!, where Elizabeth, Chad and their guests danced the night away with help from the talented DJs from Messina Productions, Inc.

Thank you Elizabeth and Chad for choosing Dogwood Blossom Stationery & Invitation Studio to design and create your custom day-of papers! It was so much fun working with you!
