Up Up and Away – Real Wedding of Jeff and Bernadette

March 1, 2017

Jeff told her that they were meeting someone here at 6:00am. Bernadette began to ask if every person that pulled into the Dunkin Donuts was the person they were waiting for. Finally a big truck with a basket in the back of it pulled in and Jeff said “they are here!” There was a big hot air balloon on the side of the truck and Bernadette asked “Are we going on a hot air balloon ride?!” Jeff smiled and said “Yes!”

They rode over to the launch site where they got to help set up the balloon. Unfolding it and holding the sides open as two large fans filled it with air. Jeff helped tip the basket over as the balloon pilot lit the fire. As the balloon filled they hopped in and quickly started to rise off the ground. The balloon quickly rose up above the trees, cows, and farmland below. As the sun rose above the mountains they could see the morning fog still hanging above the trees to the North. It was a breathtaking! Ten minutes into the flight Jeff handed his phone to the pilot and asked if he would take a picture of them. He got down on one knee and asked Bernadette to marry him! She was overjoyed and said “Yes, of course!” They spent the rest of the hour flight filled with joy as they took in the beautiful view and the peaceful moment they had alone.

Then came their amazing wedding day, a little rain the first half of the day just couldn’t stop the momentum of these two love birds! A DW favorite was this… “She was handed a  gift, a shoe box, she looked a bit confused until she opened it…and there it was…EVERYTHING.  Jeff had saved every receipt, game ticket, trinket…their entire dating history.” He knew from the beginning that she was the one.”

The reception and details didn’t go unnoticed. We loved the blush pink detailing throughout the entire design.

The incredible reception was full of fun, family, friends and laughter and the LED balloon sendoff was the perfect way to end the evening…just as their engagement began, with bright balloons.

Cheree Berry Paper Debuts in Target, on Paperless Post

St. Louis, MO – Cheree Berry Paper (“CBP”), a St. Louis-based, award-winning stationery company serving clients nationwide, announces its first retail collection at Target and its first online collection with Paperless Post.

 The Target collection includes stationery items centered around all things wedding and baby. The baby offering includes announcements and shower invitations as well as day-of accoutrements such as cocktail napkins, straws, and shower games. The wedding offering includes save the date cards, thank you notes, bridesmaid invitations, table décor, and more. Many of these items are new product offerings for Target.

 “It was a natural evolution,” said Cheree Berry, Cheree Berry Paper’s Founder and CEO. “Our custom stationery clients and fans of our brand wanted other ways to access our signature style. The opportunities with Target and Paperless Post provide a way for us to reach a broader audience for more of life’s occasions.”

 Cheree Berry Paper is the first St. Louis-based stationery company to be featured in Target and on Paperless Post. However, the company is no stranger to the national spotlight; Cheree Berry Paper designed the wedding stationery for Chelsea Clinton, baby announcements for Tina Fey, and has consistently created custom decorations for Christmas at the White House.

 The Cheree Berry Paper for Target collection is available online and in stores nationwide; The Cheree Berry Paper for Paperless Post collection is accessible online—and is available in electronic and printed formats.
