Elisia and Justus’s August 2020 wedding happened in the midst of the pandemic. Originally a celebration for 275 people, it transformed into a 50-person affair under the masterful project management of their planner, Alicia Keats. The new wedding date was also set within three weeks to take advantage of the slightly-less-strict regulations at the time—not that you could tell! The day turned out magically, with lovely touches of soft, feminine elegance woven throughout the entire setting from the decor to the florals to the venue space.
When we first met, Elisia had a clear vision of what kind of stationery she wanted to create. Looking back at my notes from our consult, she shared the following words to describe the feeling she wanted guests to experience when they opened their invitations: elegant, extraordinary, glamorous, classy, delicate. Essentially, words that would describe the wedding she was planning.
Using a soft colour palette of blush-peach, frosted-white, and champagne gold, we set upon playing with various ideas for the shape, typography, composition and monogram design for their invitations. She found a clear winner in this suite, which stood out for its simplicity and unexpected wide-panel format. It was just the right design to set the tone for their celebration. From this base, creating her feminine day-of stationery, from the delicate scroll escort cards to the brushed-gold plexiglass table numbers and champagne-foil vellum menus, just fell into place naturally.
I’m so happy Elisia and Justus’s wedding experience wasn’t tainted by the unforeseen circumstances of 2020. Their day was as bright, as romantic, as memorable as ever. I think you’ll agree.
