Real Wedding Wednesday: Amanda & Mike

It’s our favorite day of the week: Real Wedding Wednesday! Amanda and Mike’s DC wedding, planned by Bright Occasions, was so incredibly glam. We loved creating the couple’s day-of paper, including their stunning programs! The purple floral design by our Patchettes matched perfectly with the bride’s bouquet. Also, the DC skyline complemented the couple’s style and their St Regis DC venue. Sarah Bradshaw Photography really outdid themselves on capturing every detail too! It was certainly a day to remember!

Confessions of a Customer: Lilly & Phillip

There are many different ways to make your wedding stationery unique!  The Dandelion Patch loves creating custom design elements that reflects each couple’s personal style.  A custom monogram is a fun addition to your invitation and you can use the design for all of your paper needs.  If you have a vision in mind, our designers can make it come to life!

With help from Sara Muchnick Events, Lilly and Phillip used our design services for their custom monogram.  The bride tells us, “We had an excellent experience working with The Dandelion Patch to create customized wedding invitations! The people we worked with were very patient and did a great job offering a variety of options in response to our feedback. They created beautiful invitations  with an adorable custom logo that perfectly captured what we had envisioned, which was no small task to blend my husband and my differing style preferences. I highly recommend using them for custom work!”

We are so glad the Hummels were happy with their design! We can’t thank Kurstin Roe Photography enough for sharing these stunning photos of their big day!
