Shocker – a blog post!! It must mean invite season is winding down…
Yes, things have been pretty whirlwind here at Casa 6, what with some traveling, houseguests, major renos and a jam-packed wedding season, updates have been few and far between! But that’s all about to change. I finally had a chance to take some quick photos of a custom invitation suite I developed for Shannon and Mathieu, a lovely couple that I met at WedByHand last year.
It was refreshing to work with a couple with even more austere tastes than myself – I would send them a concept and they would say something like “We really love it, but we’d love it even more if you just took out that line.” Dieter Rams – Less is More! In any case, I think we arrived together at some lovely work.
I am certain their wedding at the Chateau Laurier this past May was more than lovely. We developed these cute programs with a few different moustaches on the back for photo ops. Moustaches are so in this year! Also, I heard through the Ottawa wedding grapevine that Bridget from First Kiss Films shot their wedding film; she does the most amazing work! I will definitely keep an eye out for that when it is finished so I can share the link.
For now, a few photos of some pieces of their suite, a modern yet classic, typography heavy black and white invitation set featuring lots and lots of Bodoni! Such a pretty typeface. Onwards! (More pictures after the jump.)
