danielle & jordan*

It was nearly a day ago to this date that I first met with Danielle & Jorden about their upcoming wedding. Such a sweet couple with great ideas! Danielle had a clear idea of what she was looking for in an invitation suite – that is, a clean, classic invitation with touches of modernity while retaining a formal/traditional feel. With style tastes close to my own heart, this was an exceptionally enjoyable project.

Danielle wanted to incorporate the theme of the hand blown glass chandelier from The Vancouver Club (the wedding venue). We tossed around the idea of letterpress and embossing, and ultimately chose to express this as a watermark style graphic on the top right of the invitation. We chose a high quality, soft cotton stock – Cranes Pearl White – and tone-on-tone ink in shades of soft taupe. The invitation included a hand drawn map of the venue and accommodations, details for out of town travelers, and a RSVP postcard with meal selection icons. The whole set wrapped up nicely into a sweet little package with a vellum band featuring the wedding date and the words “let’s celebrate.”

Danielle & Jorden’s beautiful wedding was featured in the Winter/Spring 2013, Western Canada edition of WedLuxe. To read more about their wedding, and personal love story, please visit WedLuxe.com.
