Anastasia and Dominick’s wedding was a modern vision of heaven. They chose a color scheme of black and white with mixed metals: gold, silver, and rose gold. An Affair to Remember planned every last detail of the intricate festivities, and Kristen Weaver Photography did incredible work capturing all the beauty.

As patrons of the arts, it was filling that their ceremony and reception took place at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing ArtsRaining Roses Productions designed out-of-this-world trees to line the aisle of their ceremony, which took place in an ethereal theatre, dripping with crystals, candles, floral, and feathers.  Angels and ballerinas danced up the aisles at their ceremony, which highlighted their theme of heaven on earth and created incredibly memorable nuptials. For this amazing wedding, we created silky-smooth ceremony programs with black covers foiled in rose gold, with interior pages printed in black on white.  Another notable moment at the ceremony was the entrance of “ring security,” carrying the couple’s ring and a sign.

At the reception, our white menus were placed on top of glass chargers, coordinating with the all-white and clear decor.  The menus were personalized to contain each guest’s name and specific entree selection.  We used flat-printed silver, rose gold, black, and gold to indicate each of the couple’s four meal options, so servers could instantly see which meal each guest had selected.

Anastasia and Dominick have a history of music throughout their relationship, and they asked us to create double-sided lyric signs for each table.  We printed the lyric that expressed their desired sentiment, and below, printed the memory or reason behind choosing that specific lyric.  Details like this are great conversation starters and make for a memorable and personal event.

We were honored to be a part of this beautiful wedding!  Thank you, Anastasia and Dominick, and congratulations!

Dallin and Gideon had a beautiful, fun, and ultra-personal wedding at the Orlando Science Center.  They are a creative, fun-loving, and inspired couple who wanted to incorporate their personalities and common interests into their wedding, so we were super excited to get to work on their designs!  One of their favorite leisure activities is board games and gaming, so a lot of inspiration initially came from their favorite games; then for day-of papers we were able to incorporate a lot of other fun stuff from their life together, like their adorable pups, Loki and Samson.  Dallin and Gideon’s wedding was really quite amazing–a thoroughly unique venue that mixed a somewhat industrial concrete patio for the ceremony with thrilling and fun dinosaur relics at the reception, a choreographed swing dance for the couple’s first dance, sock and shoe changes between ceremony and reception, and tons of personal touches throughout.

Our invitations and paper goods featured a color palette of blues, teals, and pale green with a honeycomb pattern based loosely on a favorite game.  On the reverse, we used a hearthstone from the game World of Warcraft.  In the game, you choose a home location, and the hearthstone can be used to return you to that location…how spectacularly fitting for a wedding invitation! The invitation is printed on a sleek transparent sleeve that slides over a textured white pocket folder that contains the response enclosure and important wedding information.  The inside of the folder was custom-printed with their colorful pattern and we used a round nameplate with their monogram on the printed enclosure band that held their response enclosure.

We carried the honeycomb pattern and the clean and contemporary text style onto the menus and escort cards, and the couple’s monogram and styled names were used on several other key paper goods like the ceremony programs, a “guest book poster” for guests to sign, and a larger-than-life sign that was held in the mouth of T-Rex.

Lee Forrest Design did an amazing job creating florals for the ceremony and reception that fit Gideon and Dallin’s style perfectly.  They created a perfect setting for the escort card table in particular, by placing glass dishes filled with stones interspersed with masculine florals into which the escort cards were displayed.

For the first time ever, we coordinated with Party Flavors Custom Cakes to design a custom cake topper!  Their super-unique cake was designed with hexagonal tiers with a fondant pattern that coordinated with the honeycomb pattern of the paper goods.  We also created several signage pieces ranging from table numbers, cards and gifts signage, and dessert buffet tags for the spectacular dessert buffet by Two Sweets Bake Shop.

Gideon and Dallin put so much attention into the details of their wedding, and we were thrilled to be part of their wedding!  We love working with couples who want super-unique paper goods that fully express their personalities and style.  For us, this will be a wedding and a couple to remember for a long, long time.  Thank you, Gideon and Dallin, for choosing to work with Dogwood Blossom Stationery!

“We hired Denise with Dogwood Blossom Stationery very early in the wedding planning process. It was the best decision we made. Denise came up with a modern and contemporary vision for our save-the-dates and invitations that ended up helping us style the wedding overall. As we are not very creative people ourselves, I cannot imagine what our wedding would have been like had we not brought Denise on board early on. We used Denise with everything on paper: invitations, save-the-dates, thank-you cards, custom menus, various signs around the reception and ceremony, a guest sign-in poster, cake topper, programs. Everything was extremely well done, fully 100% customized, and truly made our wedding unique. Honestly, hiring a custom designer for paper goods is naturally going to be more expensive than buying things online. But what a world of difference it made—not just in the paper goods themselves, but in really tying everything together and making our wedding look like it was a professionally-designed event. In every category of vendor, we hired who we were told was the best in town. But out of all of them, Dogwood Blossom was truly the one we could not have done without.” [Gideon and Dallin, review from WeddingWire]

Chris and Josh’s incredible wedding at Aloft Orlando Downtown was full of colorful celebration. Captured through the lens of Lauren Watai Photography, their special day included plenty of fun colors, happy family and friends, and lots and lots of dancing! We were so excited to create the invitations and paper goods for this sweet couple, who had traveled to upstate New York a couple weeks prior to their Orlando wedding celebration for their marriage license.

When I first met Chris and Josh, they told me they chose Aloft for its mid-century modern, “Mad Men” style, and they wanted their wedding style to reflect the style of the venue.  So I asked Chris and Josh to walk me through Aloft and show me some of the decor that thrilled them most.  In that meeting, we decided to use electric blue, magenta, and chartreuse, with an addition of a dark blue to balance the brights.  They loved the patterns and textures used throughout the venue as well – yellowed woods, charcoal wools, and colorful abstract shapes.  To reflect these elements, we kept the paper goods clean but modern, and incorporated contrasting textures into the layers of the invitation.

We printed their invitation on matte white and layered it onto wood veneer that had been custom-stained for them.  The backing was created with charcoal wool fabric to create thickness and texture.  Their invitation was created in a large A9 size to make the most of their textures, and it created a breathtaking and unique presentation.

For their day-of papers, we used their custom monogram from their invitation for a cohesive look. We created food and drink signs for the buffet and the bar, and favor tags on wooden sticks. Chris and Josh chose succulent plants in mini galvanized pots as their favors, and Greenery Productions styled their showstopping favor table.

The rest of the decor was equally bright and graphic. We loved the chevron-patterned cake dotted with succulents, by Party Flavors Custom Cakes, which coordinated perfectly with the chevron linens on the favor table. Greenery Productions‘ floral work included the grooms’ boldly colored boutonnieres and gorgeous ceremony flowers in vivid purple, blue, and green.

We were so honored to be a part of this beautiful and touching wedding! Thank you to these awesome vendors for helping to make Chris and Josh’s wedding dreams come true:

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.
