{Inspiration} Fresh-Squeezed: A Rustic Lemonade Stand Wedding

Dogwood Blossom Stationery, Wing of Glory Photography, Lemonade stand, bride and groom

Imagine a simpler time, spending a sunny afternoon sharing crisp cool lemonade. Childhood pastimes, like a lemonade stand, can be great inspiration for a memorable wedding.

The charm of this vintage-tinged daydream was captured by the Wings of Glory photo team and brought to life by the coordination of Vows Wedding & Event Planning. We had a wonderful time squeezing gallons of romance and joy into the invitations and paper goods that we created for this lemonade stand-inspired photoshoot.

These amazing photos capture the couple’s warm love and the effortless setting of the shoot.

The talented team at Bring out the Beauty in You enhanced the bride’s natural beauty to go along with this youthful theme. Her sun-kissed look was perfect with the glowing afternoon light!

Our paper goods were designed in yellow, blush pink, and gray, with a combination of stripes and lattice. The invitations used a layer of yellow striped seersucker fabric, were wrapped with cotton twine strung with an adorable yellow button, and encased in a custom-sewn burlap envelope. The hang tag-shaped menu cards reflected the decor’s rustic farm style, and had an added detail of jute twine.

The escort cards were displayed on a distressed yellow dresser with a backdrop of burlap streamers, adding to the rustic flavor. A yellow polka-dot border encircled each antique-style typeset number, and we backed the round cut-outs with burlap.

We absolutely loved how effortless our table numbers looked amongst the white flowers, which the Flower Lady casually placed in mason jars. Sprigs of lavender and sliced lemon accents were just slivers of the amazing details.

The lemon fresh inspiration was carried through with some delicious sweet treats. The dessert buffet included pink lemonade-colored popcorn, pink and yellow rock candy, soft pastel French macarons, and a breathtaking cake creation by Wendy Woo Cakes.

The furniture and design details by RW Events created an authentic atmosphere of a stylishly vintage farm.  The head table was set with mismatched chairs. We love the way our playful custom chair signs turned out: “He’s mine” and “She’s mine,” in case guests had any doubt! Our drink tags, below, continued the burlap motif seen on the rest of the paper goods. What a cute way to send your guests a loving message!

{News} Dogwood Blossom Featured in FFGC's December Display!

We at Dogwood Blossom Stationery are proud to announce that our work for this Woodsy Winter Wedding was included in the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs’ December wedding display! Our wedding invitations and paper goods were custom-created to coordinate with the display. Check out some stills from the display –beautifully captured by Rachel V Photography – below:

For the wedding invitation, we created a custom monogram using a vintage-styled wreath with hand-painted white mistletoe berries and carried the painted mistletoe motif through to the menus and other paper goods. Printed in mossy green on Kraft brown paper, then layered onto textured stark white cotton paper, the invitation is woodsy and rustic, but still formal.

A slim moss green ribbon and wreath-with-hand-painted-mistletoe-berries motifs are the finishing touches that make these perfect without going over-the-top!
