The wedding takes place at Arowhon Pines, a luxe, rustic resort in the Canadian wilderness. With the envelope liner we wanted to introduce the viewer to the heart of the resort, the main dining hall, the heart of the "camp" so a detailed watercolour was featured.
For the main invitation, we opted to do a stylized garland with a mix of line drawing and watercolor of the blush toned anemone, ranunculus, and dahlia flowers that will adorn the wedding day.
We finished it off with deckle-edged paper and letterpress printing for a romantic timeless feel.
We carried the stylized wedding flower motif on to create a monogram that was used to create a custom postage stamp. Envelope Addressing Calligraphy was done by Viviane Rodrigues
With BBQ lunches hosted there and water sports located there, the main dock is also a focal point of the wedding weekend. Motorboats are not allowed on the resort's remote lake, making the canoe one of the main ways of exploring. We wanted to highlight that idea and create a "call to adventure" with the RSVP card. To keep it consisted with the invitation, we finished it off with deckle-edged paper and letterpress.
We decided to create a map as part of the invitation suite to give guests a sense of the lay of the land and the many activities at the "camp." We decided to print it larger to not only showcase the details in the map, but also make it feel more like a folded treasure map. We brought back the maple leaf "logo" that was developed for the "Save the Weekend" stamp and used it to create a gold foil sticker that sealed the map.
Since most of the guests are American and many coming to Toronto for the first time for the wedding weekend, with the Welcome Night hosted at the top of the city's famous CN Tower, we wanted to play on another icon of our city, Drake and his iconic Views from the 6ix album cover. This time instead of putting Drake on top of the CN Tower, we put a small wedding cake topper customized to represent the bride and groom.
