Citrus Style Movie at The Peach Tree House from Riant Films on Vimeo.

When we were given the opportunity to work with some of our favorite event professionals for a styled shoot to feature a newer wedding venue, we jumped at the chance! Bonnie from Mobella Events had a vision to highlight the Southern style of the sweetly-named Peachtree House: a styled wedding that was all about the bright citrus colors of our sunny state and vintage touches to accent the history of the home. So many beautiful elements brought this shoot, expertly photographed by Bumby Photography, to life.

We chose whimsical, classic-looking artwork to adorn our invitations and paper goods. Wreaths of oranges, lemons and limes dotted with orange blossom and coral-colored floral created a focal point for the invitation, menu, and dessert buffet sign, and garlands of the same artwork topped the smaller paper pieces. Each piece that we created was backed with bold, juicy-colored paper in a fun, bubbling pattern.

Our custom invitations had an extra-special touch: we used tangerine orange satin, meticulously folded at the corners, as a unique backing. The invitation had two layers of bright paper on top of the satin: first, a layer of tangerine orange to coordinate with the fabric, then a layer with a custom-designed lime green pattern. The couple’s names were printed in bright coral in the center of the wreath artwork. The menus continued the wreath artwork, but with the couple’s initials casually jotted as “m + j” in the center.

In addition to the sign and tags that we signage to describe the citrus-dotted treats on the crazy-fantastic dessert buffet by Two Sweets Bake Shop, we created a custom “Just Married” sign for the back of the classic getaway car from Cole’s Classic Cars. The bold colors that we used on the ribbon banner-like sign popped when affixed to the bumper of the pastel green Chevy.

Bright floral by Bluegrass Chic, country chic pieces from A Chair Affair, custom chalk pieces and seating board by Chalk Shop and vintage furniture from RW Events rounded out the eclectic look for this shoot. We were happy to create pieces that honored the era of the home while still bringing a bit of modernity.

Want to have a cohesive look for your wedding from start to finish? Our pieces can help you with that – from custom save-the-date, the perfect invitation, fabulous and functional day-of papers, and finishing with thank you notes and everyday stationery.  Just contact us for a consultation so we can get started.

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!

Recently featured on Wedding Chicks, this truly unique shoot depicts what it would be like to be wedded in a garden wonderland. Forget small splashes of color, this shoot embraces bright, vivacious hues of popping pinks and outrageous oranges to make a dazzling kaleidoscope on the greenscape of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Perfectly planned by Mobella Events, this shoot was captured by the talented Rachel V Photography.

An absolute paradise for any sweet tooth, Two Sweets Bake Shop created a stunning dessert buffet complete with brownie-stuffed tulips, naked cakes, chocolate-drizzled baked pears, pina coladas, and adorably unique gumball necklaces.  Everything Cake created not one, but TWO amazing and perfect cakes – one bright, bold and whimsical, and one colorful but quietly muted.  Pair the out-of-this-world treats with the extraordinary floral by Lee Forrest Design and rentals and decor by A Chair Affair, and the look is absolutely stunning.

We created a layered invitation featuring bright orange, pink, and green botanical-style florals, colorful butterflies, and bees.  To help tone the bright colors, we included a shimmering pearlized gold layer and a custom-printed contemporary-patterned backing in light blue.  The suite included a custom envelope liner printed with the same blue pattern, and the response envelope was detailed with buzzing bees.  Place-setting menus reflected the style of the invitation.  We added an emerald green hummingbird, kept the pearlized gold as the backing layer, and affixed mini butterflies in a selection of bright colors to the top corner of each menu, which added a unique dimensional touch.

For a huge dose of color, we created an escort card display using die-cut “fluttering butterflies” in fuchsia, tangerine, chartreuse, lilac purple, and sky blue, printed with guests’ names and table assignments.  We created a sweet “Meant to Bee” strung banner that can double as an aisle sign at the ceremony and a decor item on the dessert buffet or cake table.

One of our favorite details of this shoot was the confetti bar!  We created simple die-cut signs for this super fun display of colorful puff balls, paper shreds, and sequin confetti.  Seriously, is there anything more festive and fun than a confetti toss?

{Real Wedding} Donna and Richard's Valentine's Day Wedding

DonnaandRichCov

Donna and Richard promised each other forever on a day meant for lovers. On February 14th, 2014, guests gathered for an outdoor ceremony at Harmony Golf Preserve. The glowing bride rode in on Misty Blue Acres Carriage Company‘s all-white carriage drawn by two horses. Her warm smile greeted guests on the way to meet her prince. The elegant backdrop of nature, as well as the decor, was caught effortlessly by Sunshine Photographics. We were honored to be a part of this beautiful wedding by creating the couple’s invitations and paper goods.

DonnaandRichardWinebox
This wine box was lovingly made by Rich’s parents. As part of their wedding ceremony, the newlyweds placed a love note to each other in this time capsule to be encased for 5 years. However, if they have a trying time before 5 years, they can unlock the box and read the notes to each other over a glass of wine from the bottle housed within. How sweet and genuine!

Another personal element was kept under wraps: the groom and his men broke all the rules by wearing superhero shirts under their button-downs.

The happy couple made their way down a beautiful aisle of fiery-colored rose petals and blazed a path towards happiness in their new lives. The vibrant orange and pinks of Lee Forrest Design‘s floral work cut a striking contrast to the woodsy setting. Our soft pink ceremony programs featured a delicate floral-patterned border and crystal accent for a little tasteful “bling.”

The fresh floral continued to their reception and romantic colors. The simple elegance of the decor was carried out through the classic centerpieces, traditional-but-modern (and delicious-looking) cake by Cut the Cake, and our cream and coral paper goods. We used an elegant script throughout the signage, including on the custom card box sign.

The couple’s chair backs were adorned with our custom signs that read “His Beloved” and “Her Beloved:” a reminder of their love and excitement to everyone who passed their seats. We were pleased to provide a creative combination of escort cards and favor tags. The favor was a slice of a traditional Jamaican celebratory rum cake. (The kids got brownies instead!) Our escort cards, printed with each guest’s name and table name, were attached by a coral-colored ribbon and a delicate charm of intertwined hearts.

{Corporate Event} Bright Orange and Cream Anniversary Invitations

Orange and cream white corporate custom-designed pocket invitation

I was thrilled to hear from Cessy Meacham recently when she contacted me about creating an invitation ensemble for a big bash celebrating the 5-year anniversary of her travel agency, Anytime Travel Solutions.  I worked with Cessy several years ago on her first-year anniversary invitations, so I was very aware that this busy lady knew how to celebrate in style!  This time around, though, she was doing it even bigger, with multiple events taking place over a weekend, and she wanted to host several of her out-of-town clients at a local bed and breakfast, as well.  So we created several invitation iterations which allowed her to invite different guests to the events meant for them.  Here’s a snapshot:

Orange and cream white corporate custom-designed pocket invitation

Orange and cream white corporate custom-designed thank you card and invitation

Orange and cream white custom-designed corporate anniversary invitation

Anytime Travel Solution’s colors are orange and gray, and one of their many specialties is travel to Italy and the Mediterranean, so Cessy asked to use the Florence coat of arms on the invitation.  We incorporated the design into a bright but sophisticated orange and creamy-white invitation.  The main invitation for her out-of-town guests is a long, folding pocket invitation, printed with their logo and a column of the Firenze design on the cream cover.  It opens to reveal the orange interior, the invitation, and a pocket containing pertinent information.  Additional invitations were created for local guests, inviting them to her ribbon cutting celebration and a special dinner.  We chose matching orange envelopes, with return address printed in dark gray on the back flap.

Congratulations to Cessy and the team at Anytime Travel Solutions on 5 years of stellar service!  And thank you for asking Dogwood Blossom Stationery to be a part of your celebration!

{News} We've been featured in Orlando Wedding magazine!

More big news!  More excitement!  Orlando Wedding magazine featured two of our Welcome Bags in the Spring/Summer 2012 issue, out on newsstands right now.  As the article says, welcome bags are a fantastic surprise for out-of-town guests to find in their hotel rooms.

Celadon green and tangerine, hot pink and emerald green wedding welcome bags

 

Our welcome bag, featured on the left, was created with a Kraft paper gift bag with twisted handles.  It was stenciled along both sides with a celadon green peacock feather.  A square tag, printed on cream, is attached with a tangerine orange ribbon.  A closing clasp is created for this bag using jute twine that loops around the welcome bag tag.

Our welcome box, featured on the right, is a custom-created hot pink box.  It is adorned with white ruffle ribbon and emerald green satin ribbon.  A white faux chrysanthemum sits on top of the box and holds in place a round welcome tag, printed on pearlized white and adorned with two Swarovski crystals.

Have you been scouting for unique welcome bags for your out-of-town wedding guests?  What are you planning to include in your welcome bags?  Contact us at Dogwood Blossom Stationery to begin custom-creating your welcome bags!

{Fresh & Sweet} Daisy Wedding Invitation in Tangerine & Sherbet Pink

Tangerine and sherbert pink are perfectly fresh colors for an outdoor summer wedding.  A long and slender wedding invitation, featuring an orange and pink daisy trio tells of the relaxed and intimate wedding that’s to come.  I’ve always loved the idea of outdoor weddings – and had one myself!  There is something about fresh air, cool breeze, and warm sun that makes me feel easy and comfortable.  I imagine this wedding to have brightly colored, unmatched linens popping with patterns, sweet and juicy watermelon slices served simply and without any fuss, and a wedding cake whose Gerbera daisies in light pinks and oranges match those on the invitation.
