Patricia and Armando were inspired by the hues of Monet’s gardens – dreamy lilac, purples, and sky blues. We loved working with them to create paper goods that coordinated with their vision for their breathtaking backyard garden wedding. Weddings Unique organized a group of talented vendors, including Kathy Thomas Photography, who transformed a private yard into a dream-like space.

We started with their wedding invitation, which a decadent, double-thick card of Pearl White cotton, letterpressed in lilac purple and charcoal gray on the back and front.  The back of the invitation was nearly filled with purple florals so that the letterpress created a luxurious tactility that caused guests to flip the card over.  Inside the spray of florals was printed a quote by Elizabeth Barrett Browning that was special to the bride because it was contained within a book of poetry given to her by her late father: “I love thee with the breath, smiles, tears of all my life.”

We created day-of paper goods in a traditional garden style, using champagnes, creams and light purples, which looked lovely against lavender-gray and bright blue linens. The ceremony programs, table number signs, and favor table sign all featured the same pretty, botanical artwork done completely in lilac ink. Sharp-edged squares, borders, and strong lines cleaned up the floral so that the look was not too saccharine.

We especially love to the escort card display… lilac tented escort cards displayed so classically in arcs on a round table.

We always offer our clients their custom monogram file to use for other non-paper purposes, like the GOBO that Get Lit Productions projected onto the pool and the draped backdrop of the reception.

This was an absolutely beautiful backyard wedding, don’t you think!  Remember to keep track of our current and ongoing projects on our Facebook page.

Sonia and Travis celebrated their marriage at the beautiful club at Bella Collina, a Tuscan-inspired venue with several outdoor spaces and breathtaking views of the Central Florida landscape. To coordinate with the stone colors of the club and bring the outdoors in (in a glamorous way), the couple chose sparkling cream, taupe, caramel, and silver as their wedding colors. It was a beautiful combination, perfect for this wedding planned by Vangie’s Events of Distinction and photographed by Rhodes Studios.

We started with a vertical tri-fold wedding invitation printed on Pearlized Champagne with a caramel damask pattern and adorned with a Camel satin ribbon and neat bow along the opening edge.  Inside, a double pocket contained the couple’s wedding invitation and enclosures.  This invitation was adorned with a several Swarovski crystals to add glamour.  This invitation provided guests with a first look into this elegant soiree.

We also worked with Sonia and Travis to create their wedding day-of papers.  At each place setting, a round menu, personalized with each guest’s name, sat perfectly in the middle of a glimmering charger plate under a bow-shaped napkin with blinged-out napkin ring. Personalized menus add such a special touch to a reception, as they make each guest feel acknowledged and welcomed.  We continued using mochas and browns and the couple’s damask pattern throughout the other day-of papers, including table numbers and escort cards.  Swarovski crystals were placed on these items as well.

We were thrilled to be part of Sonia and Travis’s gorgeous wedding! We’d love to work with you to create the perfect papers for your wedding… contact us for a complimentary design consultation.

Amy and Brandon’s Bella Collina wedding, planned and designed by the amazing Blush by Brandee Gaar, was one where literally every single detail was thought of, and each and every one of their nearly 200 guests were treated to personal delights throughout the incredible night.  We worked very closely with the bride and her mom to develop ultra-memorable paper goods that would make each guest feel welcome.

Amy was inspired by her favorite movie, Ever After, and also wanted to invoke some of the baroque style of their venue, so we incorporated a regal theme when creating their custom wedding papers. We used caramel-colored baroque flourishes and custom monogram artwork for their unique folding wedding invitations, table numbers, chair signs and customized wedding passport. We also loved creating rose gold, stitched-side CD cases that were personalized with each guest’s name and inserted with liner notes and CDs with a compilation of important love songs for Amy and Brandon. These CD sleeves doubled as wedding favors and guests’ place cards (and secretly also had a role as a meal indicator icon so servers could serve the appropriate entree, too!). Our custom monogram was used in many aspects of this breathtaking wedding, even being printed on throw pillows and projected onto the reflection pool for cocktail hour.

Amy and Brandon’s custom wedding passport was our favorite paper for this wedding.  These passports were given to guests as they arrived to the venue, and were customized on every page for each individual guest for a truly personal keepsake that functioned as a guide to take them through the night.  On the cover, we printed the guest’s name.  Amy and Brandon wrote a personal note to every single wedding guest, which we printed on the inside cover of their passport.  On the following pages were the schedule of events, ceremony program, the guest’s table assignment and personalized menu.  How special would you feel receiving a passport like this as a guest at a wedding?!

Prior to the wedding, out-of-town guests were greeted with incredible welcome boxes filled with yummy treats and a Bloody Mary hangover kit.  We were happy to work with this couple to create packaging, welcome letters, and door hangers for those ultra-custom welcome boxes.

Concept Photography and Shutterlife Productions documented every timeless moment of this incredible event. The newlyweds sealed their vows with a kiss underneath a gorgeous pink and white floral arch, complete with a chandelier, designed by Lee James Floral Designs. As day turned into night, Amy, Brandon and their guests danced underneath floating chandeliers from Kaleidoscope Event Lighting to the musically talented live band, The Buzzcats.  The finishing touch to an enchanting evening was the gorgeous 6-tiered wedding cake with blush pink sugar flower accents created by Party Flavors Custom Cakes.

Thank you for choosing to work with us to design and create your custom wedding invitations and paper goods, Amy and Brandon! We had a blast designing and producing your custom stationery, and we wish you the happiest of happy ever afters!

Marzetta and Brian are a fun-loving couple whose wedding at Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress exuded the perfect party atmosphere. We loved their bold royal purple and lime green color scheme and their contemporary but fun style.

We took great pleasure in designing and producing their custom typographical wedding invitations, escort cards, welcome letters, favor tags, and select signage.  Possibly our favorite pieces were their escort cards, which doubled as favor tags. Guests were asked to keep the clear photo frames that displayed the escort cards and swap out the escort cards with a commemorative photo strip from photo booth sessions with Photobooth Rocks!. Our second favorite pieces were their sunglass tags, which read: “Don’t be blinded by our love!”  Truly, I think those tags likely set the stage for a crazy, quirky weekend of fun.  For their table numbers, we coordinated them with the fun, modern style of their escort cards, using the same purple background and white lettering.  We used a tiny heart on many of their pieces as a line break and the only true “artwork” element.

The talented team from Just Marry! pulled out all the stops to guarantee Marzetta and Brian’s celebration was one-of-a-kind, with Steven Miller Photography and Pro One Video on site to record every moment. While Strings, Etc. and White Rose Entertainment delivered amazing music for both the ceremony and reception, the spotlight entertainment was the award-winning Egyptian Cabaret belly dancer, Yana, from Daytona Beach Bellydance. It was an amazing action-packed performance with Marzetta and Brian joining in on the dance floor.

We had a blast working with you, Marzetta and Brian. Thank you for choosing us to design your custom wedding invitation and papers!

What a pleasure and an honor it was to work with Katie and Austin to create their custom wedding invitations!  Katie is a colleague – a phenomenal wedding stylist with an amazing sense of style and full of creativity.  And apparently, so are many other members of her family!  When I met with Katie for our design consultation, one of the first things she asked me was whether I’d be able to use a painting created by her sister for the invitation.  Sure!  What could possibly be more personal than that?!  We were thrilled to work with her sister’s artwork, and add a few subtle touches of our own to create an unbelievably personal and meaningful invitation for this incredible couple.

Katie and Austin showcased their eclectic style during their outdoor wedding at Isola Farms.  We printed their invitations and table numbers on wood, which complemented the “Junk Gypsy” style that Katie had imagined.

RW Events, LLC (where Katie works as a stylist) did a fantastic job planning Katie and Austin’s celebration with Amalie Orrange Photography behind the camera to capture their day. The Sugar Suite crafted a stunning 5-tiered wedding cake draped with pink, yellow and orange flowers to flow with the impeccable floral arrangements provided by Flowers by Lesley. With dancing and photo booth sessions during the reception, there was no shortage of fun, props, or excitement for Katie, Austin and their loved ones.

We absolutely loved creating your custom stationery, Katie and Austin! Thank you for choosing us and allowing your creativity to inspire us!

Whether it is a special event or wedding, we love creating custom stationery and paper goods that will be a part of amazing memories that will last a lifetime. Contact us today to schedule a custom design consultation for your celebration.

Holly and Geoff are a fun couple with romantic sensibilities.  When I first met with Holly for our invitation design consultation, she told me about her vision for her wedding – romantic and soft, with vintage and glam touches.  Many months later, their wedding perfectly fit that description.  Holly and Geoff had a beautiful ceremony under the Spanish moss-covered trees at Up the Creek Farms. Planned by “I Do” Weddings by Kristen and photographed by Henk Prinsloo Photography, their wedding had plenty of pretty details spanning from the southern feel and open rafters of the Boathouse, rustic touches from vintage furniture and findings, and glam delivered by various metallics and glitter, including sequined table runners. The color palette for the day was blush pink, ivory, and brown.  Textures included lace, pearl, sequins, raw woods, and an itty, itty, itty bit of burlap. We used this romantic range of colors and textures as a jumping-off point when designing their custom invitations and paper goods.

We created their custom wedding invitation in a pouch style.  The pouch was created in a shimmery soft pink and used a wide cream lace wrap, blush satin ribbon, and a die-cut nameplate adorned with pearls.  The invitation was printed with a vintage patina to give the look of aged paper and layered onto blush.  All of the enclosures were tucked conveniently behind the invitation in the pouch ensemble before being mailed.  We addressed their pink envelopes in a matching handwriting-style font in dark brown.

At the wedding, guests could follow along with the ceremony while cooling themselves with our custom fan programs.  Holly and Geoff chose die-cut fan programs, printed on blush pink in dark brown.  We carried their floral artwork throughout their day-of papers.  We also created die-cut table numbers with a vintage patina for the reception, the couple’s sweetheart table sign, and tent-style escort cards.  The coordinating paper goods helped give the wedding a cohesive look from start to finish.  Custom day-of papers are the perfect marriage of function and aesthetics.

The rest of the decor captured the balance between romantic vintage and glamorous styles. Buds Etc. Floral Studio created classic-looking arrangements of pink roses, white hydrangea, and baby’s breath which were tempered by the sparkle of the gold charger plates and sequined table runners from Crystal and Crates. Crystal and Crates even supplied a vintage truck for some amazing photo opps!

Thank you Holly and Geoff for choosing to work with Dogwood Blossom Stationery to design and create your custom wedding papers!  It was so much fun working with you!

Dallin and Gideon had a beautiful, fun, and ultra-personal wedding at the Orlando Science Center.  They are a creative, fun-loving, and inspired couple who wanted to incorporate their personalities and common interests into their wedding, so we were super excited to get to work on their designs!  One of their favorite leisure activities is board games and gaming, so a lot of inspiration initially came from their favorite games; then for day-of papers we were able to incorporate a lot of other fun stuff from their life together, like their adorable pups, Loki and Samson.  Dallin and Gideon’s wedding was really quite amazing–a thoroughly unique venue that mixed a somewhat industrial concrete patio for the ceremony with thrilling and fun dinosaur relics at the reception, a choreographed swing dance for the couple’s first dance, sock and shoe changes between ceremony and reception, and tons of personal touches throughout.

Our invitations and paper goods featured a color palette of blues, teals, and pale green with a honeycomb pattern based loosely on a favorite game.  On the reverse, we used a hearthstone from the game World of Warcraft.  In the game, you choose a home location, and the hearthstone can be used to return you to that location…how spectacularly fitting for a wedding invitation! The invitation is printed on a sleek transparent sleeve that slides over a textured white pocket folder that contains the response enclosure and important wedding information.  The inside of the folder was custom-printed with their colorful pattern and we used a round nameplate with their monogram on the printed enclosure band that held their response enclosure.

We carried the honeycomb pattern and the clean and contemporary text style onto the menus and escort cards, and the couple’s monogram and styled names were used on several other key paper goods like the ceremony programs, a “guest book poster” for guests to sign, and a larger-than-life sign that was held in the mouth of T-Rex.

Lee Forrest Design did an amazing job creating florals for the ceremony and reception that fit Gideon and Dallin’s style perfectly.  They created a perfect setting for the escort card table in particular, by placing glass dishes filled with stones interspersed with masculine florals into which the escort cards were displayed.

For the first time ever, we coordinated with Party Flavors Custom Cakes to design a custom cake topper!  Their super-unique cake was designed with hexagonal tiers with a fondant pattern that coordinated with the honeycomb pattern of the paper goods.  We also created several signage pieces ranging from table numbers, cards and gifts signage, and dessert buffet tags for the spectacular dessert buffet by Two Sweets Bake Shop.

Gideon and Dallin put so much attention into the details of their wedding, and we were thrilled to be part of their wedding!  We love working with couples who want super-unique paper goods that fully express their personalities and style.  For us, this will be a wedding and a couple to remember for a long, long time.  Thank you, Gideon and Dallin, for choosing to work with Dogwood Blossom Stationery!

“We hired Denise with Dogwood Blossom Stationery very early in the wedding planning process. It was the best decision we made. Denise came up with a modern and contemporary vision for our save-the-dates and invitations that ended up helping us style the wedding overall. As we are not very creative people ourselves, I cannot imagine what our wedding would have been like had we not brought Denise on board early on. We used Denise with everything on paper: invitations, save-the-dates, thank-you cards, custom menus, various signs around the reception and ceremony, a guest sign-in poster, cake topper, programs. Everything was extremely well done, fully 100% customized, and truly made our wedding unique. Honestly, hiring a custom designer for paper goods is naturally going to be more expensive than buying things online. But what a world of difference it made—not just in the paper goods themselves, but in really tying everything together and making our wedding look like it was a professionally-designed event. In every category of vendor, we hired who we were told was the best in town. But out of all of them, Dogwood Blossom was truly the one we could not have done without.” [Gideon and Dallin, review from WeddingWire]
