Blush pink and gold are hugely popular for weddings right now, so we were excited to show how this color palette could be used to create a romantic and glamorous wedding. This styled shoot was conceived and photographed by Kati Rosado Photography with design and styling by Emily Grace Design, and the results couldn’t have been more stunning. The combination of the gleaming metallic finishes, feminine pink colors, and the rustic setting of Up the Creek Farms gave a very personal (and enviable!) overall design.

We designed our invitations and paper goods on pale pink stock with gold foil printing. The invitations were a square folder design with the couple’s initials on the cover surrounded by a laurel wreath in gold foil. Instead of a standard plus sign between the M and R, we added a sweet heart shape. Inside, the folder was lined with a mod, circular pattern in gold foil. All of the important information was printed onto blush pink paper with a gold glitter border, and the response card was held by a pink fabric ribbon embellished with a monogrammed, die-cut circle.

Pink ribbon accents were carried over to the menus and escort cards. The die-cut menus were done in a curving frame shape with a sweet ribbon at the top. The escort cards were presented in combination with the macaron favors by Two Sweets Bake Shop. Guest names were printed in an elegant script with their table numbers in a modern sans serif font (all in gold foil). Notched blush pink ribbons ran horizontally behind the cards. A sign on the favor tray/escort card table repeated the glittery gold border seen on the invitation. Rounding out our paper goods were delicate place cards, charmingly placed in artichoke holders at each place setting.

The rest of the decor for the shoot also combined classic romance with modern chic appeal. The bouquet and floral work by Julie Miner Events looked lush, especially when placed on the vintage-inspired table from Crystal and Crates. Gold was everywhere, from the classy chiavari chairs from A Chair Affair to the amazingly designed cake by Creative Cakes & Candies.

We were so pleased with how this styled shoot came out! It was so eye-catching that Ruffled featured it on their site! Check out the blog post here.

Thank you to all of the wedding professionals involved for a beautiful result!

Recently featured on Wedding Chicks, this truly unique shoot depicts what it would be like to be wedded in a garden wonderland. Forget small splashes of color, this shoot embraces bright, vivacious hues of popping pinks and outrageous oranges to make a dazzling kaleidoscope on the greenscape of the Florida Federation of Garden Clubs. Perfectly planned by Mobella Events, this shoot was captured by the talented Rachel V Photography.

An absolute paradise for any sweet tooth, Two Sweets Bake Shop created a stunning dessert buffet complete with brownie-stuffed tulips, naked cakes, chocolate-drizzled baked pears, pina coladas, and adorably unique gumball necklaces.  Everything Cake created not one, but TWO amazing and perfect cakes – one bright, bold and whimsical, and one colorful but quietly muted.  Pair the out-of-this-world treats with the extraordinary floral by Lee Forrest Design and rentals and decor by A Chair Affair, and the look is absolutely stunning.

We created a layered invitation featuring bright orange, pink, and green botanical-style florals, colorful butterflies, and bees.  To help tone the bright colors, we included a shimmering pearlized gold layer and a custom-printed contemporary-patterned backing in light blue.  The suite included a custom envelope liner printed with the same blue pattern, and the response envelope was detailed with buzzing bees.  Place-setting menus reflected the style of the invitation.  We added an emerald green hummingbird, kept the pearlized gold as the backing layer, and affixed mini butterflies in a selection of bright colors to the top corner of each menu, which added a unique dimensional touch.

For a huge dose of color, we created an escort card display using die-cut “fluttering butterflies” in fuchsia, tangerine, chartreuse, lilac purple, and sky blue, printed with guests’ names and table assignments.  We created a sweet “Meant to Bee” strung banner that can double as an aisle sign at the ceremony and a decor item on the dessert buffet or cake table.

One of our favorite details of this shoot was the confetti bar!  We created simple die-cut signs for this super fun display of colorful puff balls, paper shreds, and sequin confetti.  Seriously, is there anything more festive and fun than a confetti toss?

When we first met with Mackenzie, Billy, their adorable brand-new puppy Buddy (who is now probably bigger than me!), and Mackenzie’s mom, we knew this was going to be a super fun wedding!  Mackenzie loved whimsical scripts and chalkboard-style layouts, with shabby chic florals, heart-and-arrow motifs, and soft mint, peach, blush, and coral.  We started by creating and mailing their photo save-the-date, using their gorgeous engagement photo by super-talented Best Photography, and then followed several months later with their wedding invitations.

Their wedding invitation used a custom presentation of a landscape-orientation folder in slate gray, with the invitation mounted on the front.  We used layers of mint and custom pinstripes to add whimsy and depth, and created a custom heart-and-arrow monogram as part of their wedding branding that we used across their day-of papers, signage and even on the dessert buffet tags.  Once the invitation folder was opened, a wide lace enclosure band affixed with a custom monogram plate contained their response enclosure, and an information panel was permanently attached to the inside of the folder.  Since Mackenzie and Billy had two wedding ceremonies in which different guests were invited to each, we actually created and mailed two versions of the invitation – each containing unique wording for the ceremony, reception, and travel information.

The place-setting menus and other day-of papers were designed to reflect the style and motifs we used on Mackenzie and Billy’s wedding invitations.  We enjoyed working with the RW Events styling team to create escort cards that could be strung along their vintage painted shutters.  We love collaborating with amazing other wedding pros to achieve results as stunning as this escort card display!

Mackenzie and Billy’s Bella Collina wedding was super adorable and executed flawlessly by Blush by Brandee GaarRW Events incorporated some amazing vintage vignettes – one of our favorites being the lemonade stand.  Lee James Floral Designs did a stunning job with the ceremony and reception florals – we especially love Mackenzie’s beautiful bouquet!  Two Sweets Bake Shop created an incredible and extensive dessert buffet (including amazing and unparalled Krispy Kreme Bread Puddings).

Make sure to watch the highlights on this amazing same-day edit by White in Reveryhttp://vimeo.com/98996341

We really enjoyed working with Mackenzie, Billy, and their families, and are so happy to have been part of their beautiful day.  Thank you Mackenzie and Billy, and best wishes for an incredible life together!

Event Industry marketing by Beat Creative, ribbon cutting

Last month we had the pleasure of creating designs for the Event Industry Marketing by BeatCreative’s ribbon cutting ceremony. Christy from Anna Christine Events coordinated this exciting office grand opening event for our friend and colleague, Michelle. Bright, cheerful pops of hot pink and orange were included in every aspect of this event from the invitations to the delicious dessert table.

As a part of the ribbon cutting ceremony, guests took turns signing the ribbon before Michelle cut it in half with her giant scissors. To add to the excitement, confetti cannons filled with orange and pink paper shot into the sky and guests released balloons into the wind. The remainder of the event was spent socializing, and enjoying the amazing catering, like the nitrogen ice cream food truck from Three 2 Oh!

The invitation was the first design we created for Michelle, and became the theme for me to use on the additional paper goods. We were sure to include the “B” logo on all of the stationery because branding is particularly important to this client! Descriptive menu cards were placed on the dessert, food, and drink tables. Foodie Catering provided gourmet watermelon salad, chicken tacos, and Asian meatballs; while Two Sweets Bake Shop and Party Flavors delivered sweet treats for the dessert table.

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 recently had the opportunity to take part in a fun Sweet 16 photo shoot and open house at the new Ocoee Lakeshore Center. The colorful pop art theme made you feel as if you stepped right into a comic book. In Style Imagery captured every detail from this “pop-tastic” shoot!

Living sculptures were among the entertainment for the evening. The models’ makeup, by Live Art by Julie, was true to the Pop Art theme. The dot pattern, dramatic lines and bold lips were inspired by the work of the Pop Art Movement leader, Roy Lichtenstein. Two Sweets Bake Shop provided delicious treats from cupcakes to popcorn, and on the menu from Puff ‘N Stuff were mini donuts and milk and gourmet meatballs.

We had fun channeling our inner comic book artist when designing the invitations and paper goods for this shoot. Big bright letters inside of dramatic speech balloons, captions, and the ever popular sound effects (POP!) were all details included in the design of the paper goods. Our work was seen all over the event, from the birthday girl’s chair sign, to the signage for the dessert buffet, to custom round menus. We even designed the artwork for the custom vinyl cling on the DJ booth!

The dessert table is so inviting! Its multiple, cheerful treats were surrounded by bright floral and fruit. Two Sweets Bake Shop provided the various cookies and adorable cupcakes and Party Flavors Custom Cakes created the amazingly detailed cake. The citrus-colored cloth linens for the dessert table and cocktail station were supplied by Cloth Connection.

For the drink station, created by Two Sweets Bake Shop, we designed a custom sign for the signature drinks: mimosas and rum runners! The Florida citrus-themed bar also included orange liqueur, limoncello, small batch Florida rum, and (of course) fresh-squeezed local orange juice.

How gorgeous is this guest table? Oranges, lemons and limes were mixed into matching floral arrangements by Bluegrass Chic. Wildflower Linens supplied the bright white table cloth with floral cut-outs and custom leather chair back covers for A Chair Affair‘s white chiavari chairs. Our menu card was tied around the sunny yellow napkins, and our table card used a citrus-inspired name.

Custom wedding favor labels by Dogwood Blossom Stationery

Jars of orange marmalade served double duty as favors and escort cards, thanks to the labels we created. Each label paired a guest’s name with their table name and was adorned with the orange blossom image.

{Real Wedding} Lauren and Jermaine’s Sparkling, Royal Blue Wedding

Forever Xpressions, Royal Crest Room, Dogwood Blossom, Royal1

We had the great pleasure of designing custom paper goods for Lauren and Jermaine’s wedding day! The Orlando-area wedding, held at The Royal Crest Room in September, featured a striking color combination of shimmery silver and bright royal blue. By using our coordinated programs, menus, and signage, this wedding had beautiful cohesion and harmony, like a great marriage!

Welcome to their beautiful reception! Framed, alphabetized seating charts led guests to their appropriate tables. We created the royal blue interlaced design (seen on the program, seating charts, and menus) to coordinate with the abstract design on their linens by Wildflower Linens.

At each guest’s place, our truly unique menu cards were placed atop sparkling chargers by A Chair Affair. The guest’s name was printed on the personalized menu card to double as a place card. On the top right corner, we included a meal indicator icon to inform the servers of each guest’s dinner selections. A fun twist was on the reverse side of the menu: a wedding mad lib for the bride and groom to take as a keepsake.

The beautiful candy buffet, filled with white and blue confections by Two Sweets Bake Shop, sparkled with glass and crystal décor and flowers from Lee Forrest Design. Our candy buffet signage kept guests informed of the different delicious treats they could try. The mixed font styles went along with the playful yet sophisticated mood of the candy buffet and coordinated with the other reception papers.

Speaking of treats, their cake had five flavors! We provided understated signs to identify the flavor choices for this Party Flavors cake.
