This beautiful Georgian Bay wedding took place at Cobble Beach Resort this past September long weekend. I worked closely with Shannon Phillips a talented chef who is part owner of a successful catering business here in Toronto called Flutes & Forks. Having catered many weddings Shannon had lots great ideas as to what she was envisioning for her own wedding. She provided me with lots of elements starting with a great colour palette composed of jewel tones found in many aspects of her big day. This lead us to include these wonderful hand drawn style florals throughout her wedding invitations and stationery.
After sending out save the date cards; invitation packages were designed including just the right amount of information for Shannon and Kyle's guests to be in the loop as to what would be going on the entire weekend. Tip: Its important to include the perfect amount of information when you are planning on having invitation packages custom designed for a destination or an out of town wedding. You will need to make sure you don't have to much info. Its about making sure the info is minimal yet to the point. I would also suggest getting a wedding website. Your website will then hold all the additional information guests can look up once they receive your beautiful wedding invitations in the mail.
In my most recent years of designing wedding invites and stationery, many of my couples have planned out of town wedding weekends / getaways. This is a great intimate way to celebrate by taking advantage of adding a few casual events throughout the weekend. Many of my couples have bbq's, bonfires, brunches, golfing, beach volleyball and the list goes on. Shannon and Kyle had most of the above including a crab boil. How fun!
