When we first met with Mackenzie, Billy, their adorable brand-new puppy Buddy (who is now probably bigger than me!), and Mackenzie’s mom, we knew this was going to be a super fun wedding!  Mackenzie loved whimsical scripts and chalkboard-style layouts, with shabby chic florals, heart-and-arrow motifs, and soft mint, peach, blush, and coral.  We started by creating and mailing their photo save-the-date, using their gorgeous engagement photo by super-talented Best Photography, and then followed several months later with their wedding invitations.

Their wedding invitation used a custom presentation of a landscape-orientation folder in slate gray, with the invitation mounted on the front.  We used layers of mint and custom pinstripes to add whimsy and depth, and created a custom heart-and-arrow monogram as part of their wedding branding that we used across their day-of papers, signage and even on the dessert buffet tags.  Once the invitation folder was opened, a wide lace enclosure band affixed with a custom monogram plate contained their response enclosure, and an information panel was permanently attached to the inside of the folder.  Since Mackenzie and Billy had two wedding ceremonies in which different guests were invited to each, we actually created and mailed two versions of the invitation – each containing unique wording for the ceremony, reception, and travel information.

The place-setting menus and other day-of papers were designed to reflect the style and motifs we used on Mackenzie and Billy’s wedding invitations.  We enjoyed working with the RW Events styling team to create escort cards that could be strung along their vintage painted shutters.  We love collaborating with amazing other wedding pros to achieve results as stunning as this escort card display!

Mackenzie and Billy’s Bella Collina wedding was super adorable and executed flawlessly by Blush by Brandee GaarRW Events incorporated some amazing vintage vignettes – one of our favorites being the lemonade stand.  Lee James Floral Designs did a stunning job with the ceremony and reception florals – we especially love Mackenzie’s beautiful bouquet!  Two Sweets Bake Shop created an incredible and extensive dessert buffet (including amazing and unparalled Krispy Kreme Bread Puddings).

Clearly in Focus, Garden Chateau, Dogwood Blossom Stationery

We are excited to announce that the “Modern Citrus” wedding inspiration photo shoot that we were a part of has been published! Wedding Lovely recently released this beautiful blog, with behind-the-scenes details provided by Bluegrass Chic. Read on for more beautiful photos by Clearly In Focus Photography from this very summery shoot.

We created a series of paper goods in crisp white and bright orange, accented with branches of oranges and their blossoms. The invitation, RSVP card, and guest information card were all nestled in a custom folder.

The dessert table is so inviting! Its multiple, cheerful treats were surrounded by bright floral and fruit. Two Sweets Bake Shop provided the various cookies and adorable cupcakes and Party Flavors Custom Cakes created the amazingly detailed cake. The citrus-colored cloth linens for the dessert table and cocktail station were supplied by Cloth Connection.

For the drink station, created by Two Sweets Bake Shop, we designed a custom sign for the signature drinks: mimosas and rum runners! The Florida citrus-themed bar also included orange liqueur, limoncello, small batch Florida rum, and (of course) fresh-squeezed local orange juice.

How gorgeous is this guest table? Oranges, lemons and limes were mixed into matching floral arrangements by Bluegrass Chic. Wildflower Linens supplied the bright white table cloth with floral cut-outs and custom leather chair back covers for A Chair Affair‘s white chiavari chairs. Our menu card was tied around the sunny yellow napkins, and our table card used a citrus-inspired name.

Custom wedding favor labels by Dogwood Blossom Stationery

Jars of orange marmalade served double duty as favors and escort cards, thanks to the labels we created. Each label paired a guest’s name with their table name and was adorned with the orange blossom image.

{Real Wedding} Lauren and Jermaine’s Sparkling, Royal Blue Wedding

Forever Xpressions, Royal Crest Room, Dogwood Blossom, Royal1

We had the great pleasure of designing custom paper goods for Lauren and Jermaine’s wedding day! The Orlando-area wedding, held at The Royal Crest Room in September, featured a striking color combination of shimmery silver and bright royal blue. By using our coordinated programs, menus, and signage, this wedding had beautiful cohesion and harmony, like a great marriage!

Welcome to their beautiful reception! Framed, alphabetized seating charts led guests to their appropriate tables. We created the royal blue interlaced design (seen on the program, seating charts, and menus) to coordinate with the abstract design on their linens by Wildflower Linens.

At each guest’s place, our truly unique menu cards were placed atop sparkling chargers by A Chair Affair. The guest’s name was printed on the personalized menu card to double as a place card. On the top right corner, we included a meal indicator icon to inform the servers of each guest’s dinner selections. A fun twist was on the reverse side of the menu: a wedding mad lib for the bride and groom to take as a keepsake.

The beautiful candy buffet, filled with white and blue confections by Two Sweets Bake Shop, sparkled with glass and crystal décor and flowers from Lee Forrest Design. Our candy buffet signage kept guests informed of the different delicious treats they could try. The mixed font styles went along with the playful yet sophisticated mood of the candy buffet and coordinated with the other reception papers.

Speaking of treats, their cake had five flavors! We provided understated signs to identify the flavor choices for this Party Flavors cake.
