Anastasia and Dominick’s wedding was a modern vision of heaven. They chose a color scheme of black and white with mixed metals: gold, silver, and rose gold. An Affair to Remember planned every last detail of the intricate festivities, and Kristen Weaver Photography did incredible work capturing all the beauty.

As patrons of the arts, it was filling that their ceremony and reception took place at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing ArtsRaining Roses Productions designed out-of-this-world trees to line the aisle of their ceremony, which took place in an ethereal theatre, dripping with crystals, candles, floral, and feathers.  Angels and ballerinas danced up the aisles at their ceremony, which highlighted their theme of heaven on earth and created incredibly memorable nuptials. For this amazing wedding, we created silky-smooth ceremony programs with black covers foiled in rose gold, with interior pages printed in black on white.  Another notable moment at the ceremony was the entrance of “ring security,” carrying the couple’s ring and a sign.

At the reception, our white menus were placed on top of glass chargers, coordinating with the all-white and clear decor.  The menus were personalized to contain each guest’s name and specific entree selection.  We used flat-printed silver, rose gold, black, and gold to indicate each of the couple’s four meal options, so servers could instantly see which meal each guest had selected.

Anastasia and Dominick have a history of music throughout their relationship, and they asked us to create double-sided lyric signs for each table.  We printed the lyric that expressed their desired sentiment, and below, printed the memory or reason behind choosing that specific lyric.  Details like this are great conversation starters and make for a memorable and personal event.

We were honored to be a part of this beautiful wedding!  Thank you, Anastasia and Dominick, and congratulations!

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!

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.

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.

Picture a golden, summer day with busy honey bees buzzing under sun-dappled, shady trees. Our custom-designed invitations and wedding papers were featured in this gorgeous photo shoot by Amalie Orrange on Wedding Chicks.

For this styled shoot, we designed and created the honey bee invitations, place-setting menus, escort cards, favor tags, and biscuit bar cards. We used a honeycomb pattern as a geometric theme throughout the escort cards, invitation suite, and menu holders.

A graceful script on the escort cards was printed in bright turquoise to match the baby’s breath-filled, vintage bottles that hang from the trees. The same font on the invitations and menus is honey gold. We used bumblebee artwork to adorn the escort cards, menus, and the lining of the invitation envelopes exclusively for this project. Our invitation suite was printed on cream and kraft stock with a honeycomb border with a custom envelope liner that repeats the honeycomb pattern.

Instead of a dessert bar, this shoot featured a biscuit bar with a variety of honeys in vintage jars and decanters, and heart-shaped, freshly-baked biscuits. The favors — mason jars filled with honey — were stored in an authentic pie safe, and featured our round, kraft brown tags, tied on with twine.  Quoting Victor Hugo, the inscription on the favor tags reads: “Life is the flower for which love is the honey.”

The shabby chic furniture gathered by RW Events resonated with the rustic, vintage theme. The models were dressed in 1930s style to recreate the more relaxed atmosphere of a bygone era. The amber bands around the cake, and the gem-like quality of the honey and real honeycomb on the biscuit bar lent a richness to the rustic surroundings.

We are so pleased to have been included in this inspirational shoot, and hope that it gives you ideas for your own wedding!

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!

 We couldn’t help but reminisce when we stumbled upon some photographs from the Cypress Grove Networker event in August of 2013, and we’re so excited to share them with you! The event was designed and produced by Tamuel Cowart and her hardworking team of planners at RW Events. The networking event was styled with southern hospitality in mind; Big City Catering incorporated delicious comfort food that helped every guest get in the mood to mingle! Cypress Grove, Dogwood Blossom Stationery, Brandy & Baeu Photography, Inviation Design

We had the pleasure of designing invitations, escort cards, table menus, and sponsor signs with southern comfort in mind. We used burlap, plum jewel tones, light yellow chevron, and floral illustrations in our stationery for this event. The menus looked superb in this dining area, which was overflowing with sunflowers and greenery. Florists for this event included Windermere Flowers, Greenery Production, and Raining Roses. Brandy & Beau Photography captured beautiful images.
