With the temperature dipping and leaves turning, we were thrilled work alongside Bluegrass ChicSwanky I Do’s and Vine & Light Photography in this holiday styled shoot at The Acre, a rustic outdoor venue hidden away in Orlando’s College Park neighborhood. The wild landscape offered the perfect backdrop for the vintage setting. Shades of red and white floral arrangements with natural greenery, winter berries, and gold accents beautifully complimented the black and white table linens. We used this rich color palette throughout, combining it with soft, natural tones to create our custom invitations and paper goods.

We created a layered invitation with a paper + ribbon extra-wide custom-printed bellyband.  To reflect the linens, we printed the bellyband with black and white striped and added a burgundy ribbon with a neat knot.  The enclosures were also contained within this bellyband to keep the ensemble organized.  We chose a gold envelope and lined it with a custom black and white striped envelope liner.

We carried the same styling and variants of the motif through to the day-of papers, including escort cards adorned with notched deep red ribbons, menus that were displayed in faux antlers, and specialty signage for the bar.

From the sophistication of the red glassware and gold place settings, to the stunning, three-tiered cake with brushed gold antlers, to the furry Husky whose collar was adorned with winter foliage, we loved every aspect of this holiday styled shoot.

We’d love to work with you to create custom invitations and paper goods for your day, contact us to schedule your design consultation.

Thank you to the talented event professionals who made this styled holiday shoot a success.

Dana and Justin’s Grand Bohemian Hotel wedding, planned by Weddings in the City, was classically glamorous and ultra-romantic.  The bride’s gown and chapel veil were absolute show stoppers! We gathered inspiration from Dana’s grace and the couple’s chic style when we created their invitation, escort cards, and table cards, and signage. Their nuptials, captured beautifully by Scott Craig Photography, seem absolutely timeless.

We created a folding invitation for Dana and Justin with a champagne exterior foiled in shiny gold and accented with light peach Swarovski crystals. The interior of the folder was blush pink printed with a light pink custom micro-floral pattern. Their invitation was die-cut and their enclosures were contained within a custom-printed enclosure band with die-cut monogram. Their escort cards were printed onto blush pink and accented with a single crystal to create a colorful, but still soft, display. 

Dana chose table names based on Italian cities – the country of her heritage – which we then printed in an elegant script and die-cut into shape. We also created a number of signs for the couple to help carry their wedding branding throughout their event – we foiled their “Mr. and Mrs.” sweetheart table sign, created signature drink signs for the bar, and a guest book sign for their very special framed photograph guest book. 

A huge thanks to the talented vendors who were a part of this special day:

We recently had the opportunity to sponsor the paper goods for the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs open house. We worked with a fabulous team of vendors to produce a garden-fresh event inspired by the colorful works of Monet.  Lee Forest Design created stunning arrangements that looked as if they were created by the painter, and some of the famous pieces of art even decorated the cake! The event was perfectly planned and coordinated by Anna Christine Events and Bumby Photography, as always, did an outstanding job capturing all of the details of this floral-filled evening.

Our menus and place cards for the display table were backed with fresh garden green stock and printed with lavender ink. Garlands of purple flowers framed all of our paper goods. In addition to the display table pieces, we created the graphic for the e-vite, food and beverage signage, a sign listing the sponsors, and coordinating rack cards for FFGC.

Weddings By Carly Ane’s provided the stunning orchids and florals, “Radiant Orchid” (2014 Pantone color of the year) being the color the shoot was designed around. The vibrant purple orchids were mixed with various white accent flowers and crystal vases that shined under Orlando Wedding & Party Rentals‘ uplighting, creating a beautiful image. The glittering, sequined table linens added to the celebratory feel and were provided by Over the Top Linens.  Golden chiavari chairs, picture frames, and silver glitter chargers, provided by A Chair Affair, added some extra sparkle.

The color palette for our custom wedding invitations and paper goods included Radiant Orchid purple, gold, silver, and plum purple, all with glitter and metallic accents.  The folding invitation featured a pearlized gold folder with a glittery purple belly band tied with orchid satin ribbon.  Inside, the invitation was printed in radiant orchid in full bleed with white lettering.  A monogram enclosure band held enclosures in place.

Custom place-setting menus were designed to coordinate with the invitation ensemble, with an addition of a gold glitter backing.  Placed at each place-setting, they added even more color to the table, in addition to functioning as an information piece for guests.

Escort cards were also printed in orchid purple in full bleed, with glitter gold backing.  Favorite pieces included the “Mr. and Mrs.” round chairback banner, printed in plum on metallic gold and strung with a teal ribbon, adorable mini champagne bottle labels, double-sided gold glitter and monogrammed drink stirrers, and specialty signage pieces.
