{Real Wedding} Amy and Brandon: A Fairy Tale Wedding in Taupe, Pink, and Gold

















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.

Elizabeth and Chad are an amazing and glamorous couple who know how to have fun. Their wedding at the Hyatt Regency Coconut Point Resort & Spa was truly a five-star affair, and we were thrilled to create custom menus and table numbers for their celebration. For the custom menus, we layered an exquisite black and white striped design onto opulent gold card stock, alternating with black and white text for a unique look. Elizabeth wanted a very traditional, classic look for the table numbers, where we layered white on black.  The table numbers were displayed in beautiful, tall gold table number stands.  It was a beautiful touch to a perfect marriage of glamour and elegance.

An Affair to Remember flawlessly coordinated the happy couple’s special day while Kristen Weaver Photography captured every moment on film. The celebration exuded sophistication with beautiful gold Chiavari chairs from A Chair Affair, Inc., white and crystal floral arrangements designed by Fairbanks Florist and black and white linens and table runners from Over The Top Linen Inc. The crowning piece that tied the décor together was the stunning dance floor provided by That’s A Wrap!, where Elizabeth, Chad and their guests danced the night away with help from the talented DJs from Messina Productions, Inc.
