We are excited to announce that the “Modern Citrus” wedding inspiration photo shoot that we were a part of has been published!

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.

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.

A vineyard can be the perfect setting for any wedding, especially with our custom-made, vineyard-inspired wedding paper goods. The color combination of plum purple and gold beautifully accents the scenery, making it the optimal place for any outdoor wedding. This photo shoot captured by Tod Thompson Photography showcased every detail, from the invitations to the floral arrangements.

The wine label-inspired, layered wedding invitations feature an intertwining gold design with corner accents surrounding a solid gold band, highlighting the purple print inside. The white mailing envelope is lined with a matching purple envelope liner. Don’t they pair exquisitely with the floral arrangements from Peplum Events & Design?

Custom wine bottle labels are a must for a vineyard wedding, making the bottles wonderful wedding favors for your guests to remember your special day. The labels are designed to coordinate with the invitations, with a matching intertwining gold design, and can be made for both regular and mini wine bottles. In this shot, Save the Date Wedding & Event Design brought the winery to the table with their elegant “vineyard chic” tabletop design.

Wine cork escort cards are a splendid seating choice for a winery wedding. Each escort card features a gold double-pinstripe border printed on pearlized white and layered onto plum, and a cork escort card holder to tie everything together. These escort cards can add a fun and rustic feeling to your wedding!

Isn’t the bride radiant in her dress from Modern Bridal? Her dress, along with the white wooden church pews from A Chair Affair and barrels from Lakeridge Winery, helped transport the scene to a country vineyard in Italy.
