The Walk Down the Aisle: The Dream Maker

Welcome back! We have all envisioned our dream jobs, our dream car, our dream life, and our dream wedding! The one major thing all of our dreams have in common… Help! You might have attended and participated in more weddings than you can count. You have purchased more “whimsical” bridesmaid dresses than a bridal store and have seen every season of “Say Yes to the Dress, Four Weddings, and My Fair Wedding” to master the art of wedding planning. You believe you are fully prepared to plan your big day! Reality charges at you like women at the bouquet toss. The understanding of width and height on your wedding cake has you feeling like your in high school algebra and you’re not sure which vendor to use for your floral arrangements. Take a deep breath and

Molly McKinley Designs :

“Molly McKinley helped me to plan my wedding and coordinate day of. My wedding was the best day of my life. Even my husband, who is not always fond of huge, fancy events, said it was the best day of his as well. She allowed us both to relax on the wedding day and have things run smoothly. She made planning easy and shared her creativity to help my visions become realities (and in some cases better than I ever could have imagined). During times leading up to my wedding, people asked me if I was stressed, and I honestly was not at all. I worried this meant I should be if I were really prepared, but thanks to Molly, I did not have to stress before, day of, or afterwards. She is a very effective communicator and wonderful to be around. She is down to earth, low stress, and wonderful at her job. I highly recommend her. Thank you Molly!”

-Kelly D., Bride

” I would like to thank you for planning my Bridal Shower!  The event was way more than I expected.  From the decorations, to the games I was totally pleased.  I am so happy that you were involved and you made my day very special.  I could not have had a better experience.  I appreciate all that you did.  If I ever need another event planned I will most definitely call on you.  Thanks Raven, you are the BEST!”

SAS Weddings:

“The problem with a wedding is you don’t know what details or obstacles you are going to encounter. Sarah gave us amazing advice thought out the entire process. She helped us navigate all the challenges we faced on our big day. In the long run Sarah will not cost you money, she will save you money and help you get the most for you wedding!!.”

-Abbi & Chris


Lemiga Events:

“If there’s one thing that I can say about having Lemiga Events do my wedding planning is that it was definitely worth it! They have developed great relationships with many vendors and they all work together to create art. I was absolutely blown away. Anyone could walk in the room and be able to tell that it was my and my husband’s personality.”

“Words cannot begin to describe how much of an asset Janel and her team were to us. She made a great impression on our family and friends. My now husband and my mother still sing her praise! Lol!

Where you based?
Atlanta, Georgia

Do you offer your services to clients outside of Atlanta?
Yes, we have provided services to many clients outside of Atlanta. We are happy to provide our custom stationery to clients all over the globe!

What do you specialize in?
We specialize in all things paper and graphic design. We offer custom business stationery and collateral as well as social stationery. Perhaps, we are best known for the custom wedding stationery we provide. It is our pleasure to create “papered” dreams for each of our clients as they journey to their wedding day. We love to document the journey from start to finish with purely wondrous inspiration.

How did you get started and when?
Our founder, Lisa R. Zachery, started designing invitations and other stationery pieces as a hobby. She loved assisting loved ones with life’s celebrations. She began the business part-time in 1995, while working in Corporate America. Papered Wonders, Inc. began to operate as a full-time entity in 2001 and since that time we have grown our client base and have serviced hundreds of brides throughout the years.

How do you customize stationery for your clients?
Our customization process starts at the very beginning. Every piece and detail of stationery, whether business, social or wedding, is a unique combination and representation of the client’s desires and vision. We focus on the intricate details so that each piece of stationery differs from the other and so that the client is fully embodied into the work.

What do you offer in addition to invites and save the dates?
We offer all things paper! In regards to wedding stationery, we offer save the dates and thank you cards and everything in between including, but not limited to, wedding invitations, programs, menu cards, escort cards, favors, seating charts, directional signs, banners, keepsake boxes, and the list goes on!

What is your favorite part of the process?
Our favorite part of the process is the process itself! We take great pleasure in working closely with our client throughout the design process. We love interacting with them and learning more about them by learning their distinct preferences. When the journey is over, we are pleased when the client is pleased but saddened that the process has to come to an end. Fortunately, we seek to build relationships so that when one celebration ends and the other begins, we are there to start the process all over again!

 Where do you get inspiration from?
We look to many sources for creative direction, but our greatest inspiration is our clients. So much of our work is dependent upon who the client is and what they seek to convey that they become the driving force for all of our creativity.

What makes you different from other stationery specialists?
We would like to believe that what makes us different is the personal approach we take to business. Rather than viewing our clients as business transactions, we consider them to be an extension of the work we do at Papered Wonders, Inc. We do not merely service our clients, but we seek to serve them and provide them with the absolute best experience possible.

Wedding Bouquets for all Seasons and Styles

Wedding bouquets are an essential part of your wedding, and every bride knows what she wants on her special day. There are various styles, flowers, and arrangements that go in to the bouquet. Each one epitomizes the look of the wedding and can be personalized to fit the bride’s style.


A great way to make your bouquet look beautiful and still blend naturally is to go with colors of the season your wedding is in. If you have a spring wedding, use pastels or lights colors that would be seen during the spring. Go for hardy flowers that wont wilt (sunflowers, dahlias, lilies or hydrangeas) if marrying in summer or in a humid climate.

 Even though colder seasons might not bring spring blooms, deep reds and oranges reflect the beautiful changing of the leaves and colors of the season. Whites, grays, and reds are also gorgeous colors to capture the essence of winter.

Or, consider mixing things up and choose a bouquet that is full of succulents and lamb’s ear.

Charms are a beautiful way of personalizing your bouquet so that it is more meaningful to you. A beautiful way to do this is to attach pictures of loved ones; maybe some that have passed or could not be there for your special day. Some brides also choose to attach a pin from their sorority or another important organization to their bouquet.

Another unique way to create your bouquet is to use something other than flowers. These types of bouquets can be an outlet of creativity for the bride. You can personalize them however you like – color, size, fabric, pattern – and they will last forever.
