Real Wedding :: Michelle & Ryan

Michelle & Ryan came to me with a clear vision of stationery for their May 18, Grouse Mountain wedding. They wanted to incorporate the ski hill and outdoor aspects of their wedding location. The invitation suite was based on a ski lift pass and the rest of the stationery followed suit. We even included some bear prints for an extra element of fun! Thanks to Matt Kennedy Photography for sharing these photos. To see more photos of their wedding view his blog post here.

Real Wedding :: Caroline & Derek

This was another one of my favorites from 2012! It didn't seem like work, as I had lots of fun creating this aqua and red carnival themed wedding invitation and stationery. The bride was so detailed and organized it made my job easy to bring her vision to life. I was extremely excited when I saw the wedding day photos by Eternal Reflections Photography, who even took the time to capture our invitation suite in a variety of beautiful compostions. Enjoy the gorgeous photos of this vibrant and fun wedding!

Real Wedding :: Shannon & Nathan

It was a pleasure to be involved in Shannon & Nathan's wedding as I know Shannon personally. The pink, gold, and ivory color combination the couple chose made for a lovely invitation suite with delicate peony flowers contrasted with a metallic gold envelope and striped cigar band. The reception stationery had some unique elements like a multi-framed seating chart and personalized thank you cards to guests, which were placed on each napkin. This turned out to be a beautiful wedding for such a special couple. Congrats Shannon & Nathan!

Real Wedding :: Tara & Brett

With the snow upon us, I thought it would be a good time to share this dreamy vintage winter wedding from February of this year. This was one of my favourite invitation suites to date, with a custom illustration created to perfectly suite the couple and the rest of their wedding decor. Tara & Brett both have careers in environmental science and decided to incorporate their love of nature and animals into every aspect of the wedding.

I knew about some of the details of the wedding day, but was blown away when I seen the wedding photos captured by Diamond Cake Photography. The planning and design was executed beautifully by Jennifer Bergman Weddings. This wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty Canada and you can view the complete wedding gallery here.
