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.

You’ve heard of the “first look” when a couple sees each other for the first time before their ceremony.  Well, here’s a “first look” of a couple seeing their dessert buffet, created by the amazing Two Sweets Bake Shop, for the first time prior to their reception.  Barb and Steve were married at the jaw-dropping Grand Bohemian Hotel, and I do believe their faces in the photos say it all!  This is why we love working with Two Sweets–to create custom signage and buffet tags for their incredible dessert displays–because the reaction is priceless.

It was a moment that Barb can now relive forever thanks to Castaldo Studios, who did an amazing job capturing every sweet moment from this wedding reception! All of the details really made this buffet into a show-stopper: from the sumptuous floral designs by Bluegrass Chic, to the wine barrels and wooden tables from A Chair Affair, to the gorgeous petite cake by The Sugar Suite. Everything was expertly planned and pulled together beautifully by Swanky I Do’s, who helped the bride design the buffet with more that 22 sweet treats!

We designed the buffet tags and signage to reflect the antique style of Barb and Steve’s invitation.  We thought artwork that mimicked vintage perfume bottle labels would be a perfect fit for such an elegant vintage display.  We printed these pieces on creamy paper in a sepia tone, and then layered them onto bronze tent cards.

Congrats to Barb and Steve and best wishes for a wonderful life together!  And thank you to Two Sweets Bake Shop for having us create these custom pieces for such a lovely couple!
