It was a busy and memorable Canadian Thanksgiving weekend. My good friends were wed at the historical Casa Loma in Toronto. Not only was I honored to stand in at their wedding as part of their bridal party, I was also granted the delightful task of designing and producing all of their wedding stationery.
It was a welcome experience. From the start, my friends were certain the castle would be the focus of their wedding invitation. They, a winsome pair, were positively set on a charming and cheeky design and I was put to the test. What resulted were the following: a battlement containing all invitation inserts, a door concealing the bride and groom, and three inserts in three gradations of blue, which when put together display the entire height of the castle’s tower. This invitation set is one of my most cherished works in my five years of stationery design, and for good reason — they are for cherished friends.
