A cherry blossom motif defines this pink and plum letterpressed stationery, representing groom Steve's Japanese culture. Some pieces, such as seating cards and programs, are presented in pink vellum envelopes. The program is also bound by a band of rice paper.
Liezel and Christopher selected a grand four-tier cake by Vosges Haut-Chocolat. A cluster of pink peonies serve as the topper, and the tiers are draped in rolled ivory fondant and detailed with jewel-like swags and dots piped in royal icing. Fresh pink peonies, begonias, and fuchsia decorate the corners. Inside, the cake is a rich medley of flavors: Layers of white Tahitian vanilla-bean cake have rose petals baked right in them; the filling combines strawberries with a ganache made of white chocolate, pink Champagne, and rose water.
In keeping with the theme of this Belmont, California wedding, which was vintage glamour, newlyweds Melissa and Sam step into a rented 1950s Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud after their reception. Gold ribbon draped across the hood and tied to the hood ornament suspends a wreath of garden roses and their tiny buds in shades of pink, peach, and cream. The bride and groom were surprised to discover that the car's leather interior was aqua blue, a color prominent throughout their wedding.
Paperweights decoupaged with pink roses anchor a parchment-color paper scroll for family and friends to sign at Melissa and Sam's wedding. A vintage ribbon fastened it closed. Above it, snowberries and pink and white garden roses were arranged in an antique blue-enamel loving cup.
Hundreds of roses in cream, pink, and coral are arranged in floral-foam cones to form topiaries and set in silver vessels; handcrafted silk flowers are placed among the arrangements at Jessica and Cody's wedding at Tiffany's. The tables shone in pale-pink linens topped with golden runners. Table design by florist Matthew Robbins.
For a guest book, Sheila and Steve followed a Japanese custom by asking guests to tie their sentiments to tree branches with ribbons. Here, branches are adorned with crepe-paper buds and blossoms and placed in a porcelain vase. Expressions like "Prosperity" and "Good Marriage" were written in Korean and Japanese and hung ahead of time to decorate the branches.
These parcels full of old-fashioned candies are set at each place setting at Melissa and Sam's wedding reception. The pink and white striped paper liner is sealed with a personalized sticker and the guest's name calligraphed on a menu bound to the favor with gold cord.
At the guest-book table at Liezel and Christopher's wedding, family and friends could express their hopes for the newlyweds as well as receive a written wish from the couple. Guests wrote their notes on coral cards and placed them in apothecary jars. In return they could draw a wish from another jar.
At Sheila and Steve's Costa Mesa reception, a dramatic 30-foot-long head table is the focal point of the room. It features an eclectic collage of romantic and exotic blooms, reflecting the bride's personality and the color palette, which includes several shades of pink.
Bride and groom, Mimi and Harry, had a trilingual program, a touching keepsake of their wedding ceremony. Originally written in English, the text is also printed in Vietnamese and Chinese, so that all of the guests present at their wedding can understand and fully participate in the joining of the two families.
Stationer Cheree Berry created all of the blue and pink paper elements for this southern wedding, from the save-the-dates to the signage on the getaway car.
The save-the-date, a square mini book, sets the tone for the joyous wedding of Devon and Dan. Disclosing the story of how the couple met in a whimsical, fairy-tale manner, it begins with "Once upon a time." (The "Happily Ever After" comes with the wedding program.)
A wall of satin ribbons made by the bride and groom, Lauren and Michael, was the perfect backdrop for the escort-card trays. Pink, yellow, and green arrangements added to the heigh tof the table while wedding coordinator Heather Vaillet of Amorology filled each tray with vintage jewelry from Lauren's collection and placed them atop custom pink fabric-and-lace-covered boxes to add dimension to the table.
