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 are so excited to feature this wedding! Melissa and John married in the Dominican Republic in 2012, and their day was pure magic.  So much so, that it was featured in Destination Weddings and Honeymoons magazine. We are so grateful to Sara Kauss Photography for sending us these beautiful photos! The Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana provided a lovely seaside venue for the couple’s all-white ceremony and blush pink and silver contemporary, but romantic, reception.

Melissa and John were referred to us by John’s brother, David, and new sister-in-law, Kelly, whose wedding invitations and papers we had created the previous year.  Both brothers and their beautiful brides had breathtaking destination weddings, and both couples were incredibly pleasant to work with.

We created Melissa and John’s paper goods to match their modern romantic wedding style. We used white stock with a shimmering overlay of glittery silver organza fabric for the invitations and paper goods. Soft pink was the couple’s accent color, so we printed the decorative touches in this lovely shade. Graphic floral artwork in light pink decorated the invitation and seating charts, and a motif of elegant pink brackets was used throughout the paper pieces. For an added special touch, we accented the invitations with delicate crystals and enclosed them in pink pearlized envelopes.

Some of our favorite pieces from this wedding are the seating charts and the chair back signs. Melissa and John had a large amount of guests, so we printed their table assignments onto five framed seating charts, each designed uniquely to coordinate as a group display.  Keeping consistent with the overall look of the paper goods, we included the linear floral pattern and curvy brackets. The curved, frame-style chair back signs gave the sweetest message to the couple’s guests! For the bride’s chair, the sign read “I fell in love with the boy next door,” and the groom’s said the same about “the girl next door.” Just darling!

We were honored that John reviewed us on WeddingWire. Here’s a little bit of what he had to say about working with us:

“One of the things that I thought was worth every single penny we spent, was Dogwood Blossom Stationery. I went to Denise with my ideas and she was able to take what I was imagining and make it a reality. As soon as I told her what I wanted, everything else was taken care of quickly, professionally and beautifully. I couldn’t have asked for a better service and I can’t thank Dogwood Blossom Stationery for making my day that much more special with your attention to detail. I recommend Denise to everybody and anyone who wants a great, beautiful end product without the headache. Thanks for everything!”

Thank you, Melissa and John, for choosing to work with Dogwood Blossom Stationery to create your custom save-the-dates, invitations, and wedding papers!

Modern romance came alive at Mystic Dunes Resort & Golf Club in this stunning photo shoot by RW Events. The photos by Victoria Angela Photography came out absolutely beautifully and brought to life every detail from the shoot.

We designed the invitations, menus, and escort cards using a combination of modern serif and handwritten-style scripts done in gold foil on mint colored stock. The invitations featured a gold foil quatrefoil grid on the front of the folder and a glittery gold border around the inside. The menus were created in the popular round die-cut shape. We went took a simple approach to the escort cards, repeating the circular shape from the menus to create small disks with the important information for guests to find their seats.

Everything from the bouquet to the candlelit floral centerpieces by Flowers by Lesley felt simply elegant. Inside the golf club, mint green uplighting was used to accent and color to the reception room. Golden decor, from the chiavari chairs to the cake to the table accents, was tempered by the ivory linens and arrangements of white hydrangeas with cream-colored roses.

We were honored to be a part of this gorgeous shoot. Thank you to all the incredible event professionals who contributed their talents:
