Inspired by the ballroom scene in the movie Labyrinth, which is a forever favorite for many of us, this project was extra-special for many of the vendors involved. For this styled shoot designed by Anna Christine Events, feminine was paired with masculine: flowing fabrics paired with tooled leather, lush florals paired with old clocks and weathered metals. With Claire Pacelli Photography behind the camera, every detail of this whimsical styled shoot at Up the Creek Farms was captured to perfection.

The wedding invitation we designed for this styled shoot was a scalloped-edge gatefold invitation printed with a custom pattern in shades of cream, warm brown and sepia. A satin ribbon wrapped around to close the invitation with a custom wax seal. These were housed in a brown silk gatefold box with a rich brown ribbon and a bronze brooch embellishment.

Inside the ballroom, table settings of glitter glass chargers from A Chair Affair were topped with wedding menus printed in a vintage patina, embellished with a wide, peach-colored fabric ribbon then layered with crisscrossing ivory ribbon. Next to each setting, scroll-like place cards were wrapped around fresh peaches (in the film, a poisoned peach transported Sarah to Jareth’s whimsical Ballroom in one bite). We also created round escort cards, that rested inside glass bubbles atop lush green mosses, and hung in front of free-standing rustic doors.

The bride dazzled in a gorgeous gown from LA Bridal Boutique reminiscent of Sarah’s grand ballgown, and wore lengths of ribbon in her hair; the groom was sleek and sophisticated in a sharp gray tuxedo from Absolutely Fitting. Fabulous floral accents of pale pinks and whites designed by Flowers by Lesley added hints of romance, complementing the stunning 5-tiered pale pink and white wedding cake fit for a Goblin King and Queen by Everything Cake. A stunning dessert buffet with the most decadent of treats was created by Two Sweets Bake Shop.

We were so happy to see that the shoot was featured on Every Last Detail!

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!

Last month, we were a part of the Perfect Wedding Guide Orlando networking event at the new Up The Creek Farms. The entire evening had a warm, welcoming atmosphere, thanks to the coordination and styling pros of L.I.F.E. Events. The venue has a rustic atmosphere that was amplified by the vintage Southern decor. Colors for the evening were hues of coral and navy blue with touches of sunshine yellow, which was seen in the vintage furniture brought by Crystal and Crates Vintage Rentals, the floral arrangements from Buds Etc Floral Studio, and the cake by Best Little Cake House, and our paper goods. We’re happy to share some beautiful photos by Bumby Photography.

We created fun, whimsical pieces for this event. Our custom fans did triple duty! Guests could cool themselves, use the fans as props in the photo booth, and also read the credits for the participating vendors. On one side, we printed old-Southern sayings like “Bless Your Heart!” and “I Do Declare!” while the other side was printed with the list of event sponsors. The curved frame die-cut shape gave the fans a pretty and classic look. Floral artwork in shades of coral decorated the corners of the fans and was also featured on the rest of our paper goods.

The custom table cards were another cheeky element that we made especially for this evening. Mounted on navy blue tent cards, we created signs with stereotypical Southern “tips” such as “Be a one-person welcome wagon” and “Have a signature cocktail.” The cards were backed with various patterns of coral plaid behind a layer of sunny yellow card stock.

P is for Pie Bake Shop provided a dessert buffet stocked with traditional Southern treats. We created round signs on picks for many of the desserts, including pecan pie, s’mores, and berry and lemon cream “cutie pies.” Each of the signs featured a single flower to follow the artwork motif. For the specialty “hummingbird cupcakes,” we made a sign on a navy tent card in a similar style to our other table cards.

We love designing invitations and paper goods that are unique and created specifically for a particular event. Make sure you’re following us on Facebook to see examples of our work.

Thank you to all of the amazing wedding professionals that teamed up to make this Southern-styled evening a success:

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.
