An avant-garde approach to wedding branding.

You can have it all with the right designer on your side. Creative In Bloom brings to life a wedding brand which is equal parts luxurious and modern, with an elegant twist. The bold floral inlay is a surprise within the bold black and gold envelopes, sealed with a rich burgundy stamp. The invitations inside are a crisp white and blue creation, using a modern type design to bring the modern edge. A repeated motif through the wedding is the couple’s custom monogram, utilized on the invitation and throughout the wedding communications.

This unique and textural ceremony arch transitions to the perfect Autumn or Winter sweetheart table.

An arch created entirely out of branches gives a clear focal point in the light-fill interior of The Wilds wedding venue. Touches of burgundy and blush foliage are placed asymmetrically on the arch. Dark iron lanterns bring lots of delightful sparkle. Transitioning to the wedding reception, a sweetheart table with eclectic vintage furniture from Violet Vintage fits perfectly in front of the ceremony set. The classic table decor is kept minimal, allowing the wedding arch to remain the drama and the couple to remain the focal point.

Airy floral and decor details with jewel-toned depth.

Woven throughout the elegant wedding are alternating saturated and deep tones of burgundy. It is found everywhere from the groom’s jacket from Sophia’s Bridal and Tux to the florals full of whimsy by Artful Blooms. Adding a little romance and a lot of fun to the design, wispy greenery and pale fronds prove that the colder seasons of Autumn and Winter can have the visual lightness usually associated with the warmer seasons. Crisp blue accents keep the design feeling fresh and joyful. And your guests will find their place and be sitting pretty with uniquely textural customized leather name cards. Keepsake napkins printed with the signature drink recipes make for a memorable, beautiful, and useful party favor.
