We love, simply love this marketing shoot featuring gowns by Tara Keely and Jim Hjelm, designed by An Affair to Remember and shot bywns by Kristen Weaver Photography!

This elegant beach bohemian shoot used jasper green, gold, pale blues, and natural elements like washed-out woods and garlands of spiraling vines.

For the wedding invitation and paper goods, we invoked the breezy elegance of the seashore. Sea-glass green and cream were our main colors, accented by gold. The invitation was enclosed in a textured dusk blue tri-fold folder. Inside, the invitation was printed on a very light speckled blue, layered onto pale gold, then layered onto a printed light blue backing.  The folder pocket was printed in white ink with the couple’s initials.

We mimicked the colors and materials from the invitation for the menus, but added wrapped and knotted cotton twine to contribute a natural element.

How much do you love the gowns, florals, and floating amber glass chandelier of this incredible tablescape?  Personally, I’d like to spend a day inside these photographs!

We’d love to work with you to create custom paper goods that perfectly match your wedding vision!  Contact us to schedule a complimentary design consultation.

With the holiday season approaching, the timing was perfect for our “Winter Wonderland” styled shoot with Andi Mans Photography and planner extraordinaire Blush by Brandee Gaar. A variety of deep and vibrant shades of red mixed with plenty of white and gold made this shoot look modern and romantic, with plenty of references to traditional holiday elements. Classic holiday elegance was combined with warm wood tones and a variety of textures to give the shoot an inviting feel. We used these rich colors and textures and mixed in warm, casual notes when creating our invitations and paper goods.

Our invitation was enclosed in a folder that was wrapped with a red satin ribbon. Inside, the invitation and response card were die-cut to create a pretty frame edge, and a band of red satin ribbon also held the response card. While the exterior of the folder was white, the interior featured a deep red with a subtle damask watermark with rosy-colored florals used throughout.  The floral motif and carried over to our deep red custom menus, which were also done in the die-cut frame shape.

We used our new printed wood technique to create customized tags for the napkin ties, chair back escort cards, and to label the ingredients for Two Sweets Bake Shop‘s hot chocolate buffet. Each set of wooden cards was cut in a different shape: rounded squares, scalloped edges, and even the frame shape that we used for the invitations and menus.

Every element of this shoot was carefully thought out. We loved the whimsical and decadent hot chocolate buffet with accompanying mirror board by Chalk Shop, the amazing variety of flowers and greenery by Cheryl’s Distinctive Creations, and the warm plaid blankets wrapped around the dazzlingly elegant bride and bridesmaids. All together, this great mix of styles should provide the perfect inspiration to get you in the holiday spirit!

We loved showcasing some of our unique techniques in this styled shoot! You can get a similar look for your wedding or special event–just contact us for your design consultation.
