Japanese Style Invites

A Hint of Japan in Chambly Québec

This posting is very special to me as it about the wedding of Marie-Claude (my little cousin) and of her now husband Patrick. From beginning to end the day was romantic, quirky and so fun. Having travelled to Japan, Marie-Claude and Patrick fell in love with the culture, design and of course the food. Their wedding took place in Chambly, where the famous Quebec beer is made. Their day was a blend of French Canadian culture and the Japanese influence from their travels. Marie-Claude and Patrick wanted to make their mark by having me design a graphic icon of themselves as a Japanese couple. This icon was then converted into a custom stamp which was hand stamped onto the back flap of their envelopes. Save the dates were custom designed into a postcard giving a "mailed from Japan" feel. The invitations were a bit more formal yet fun mixing various Japanese patterns together. And lastly their colour palette was made up of various blues such as rich royals and aquas.
