Kellee and Derek married in July of 2012. The romantic atmosphere of TPC Sawgrass added to this traditional wedding, which had some amazing custom touches. Kellee wore separate bridal looks for the ceremony and reception, including a change of hair and jewelry! Her gowns from Priscilla of Boston and Martina Liana, Lace Mary Jane by Jimmy Choo shoes, and gorgeous make up by Maureen Riley made this beautiful bride into a show-stopper. Weber Photography captured the magical moments seen here, and Maverick Entertainment crafted a film for the couple to enjoy for years to come.
The elegance of our creamy white and navy blue invitations and paper goods added to the wedding’s country club chic styling. Alexa Pulitzer designed the cipher, which featured two intertwined “M”s to symbolize the union of their families. The couple used this personal detail to connect all of the paper goods.
We designed their wedding invitation using textured warm white papers and pearlized midnight blue. Kellee and Derek chose a custom-printed folder with an enclosure band inside containing their custom cipher and their names. To surprise guests with a truly personal touch, we printed a fish tail on the back of the invitation that represented varying aspects of the couple’s love story, from their religious roots to the groom’s favorite pasttime. This “surprise element” fish tail was reflected again on the back of the programs and table numbers. Even their wedding cake had a surprise fish tail on the back!
Our charming banner-style aisle sign reserved the aisle for the bridal party, and guests were greeted at the ceremony by our sign that asked guests to “choose a seat, not a side.”
Bay Bouquet organized a neutral-toned reception, decorating the room in soft tans, mahogany chiavari chairs, gold accents and soft yellow lighting. Their white flowers with pops of pink and blue were the centerpiece of every table.
The couple had fun with the detailed wedding cake, created by Classic Cakes, and even more fun on the dance floor! They hired a great band, Az Izz, who kept the dance floor in motion the entire night.
Working on this wedding was a blast! Thank you Kellee and Derek, for choosing to work with Dogwood Blossom Stationery to create your custom wedding papers!
