Last week I went to Lake Louise, Alberta, for a storybook winter wedding. Chateau Lake Louise is a picturesque, dream location to host a wedding. The venue is so historic, so luxurious, so iconic, so… Canadian, that you just can’t go wrong. The glorious Rocky Mountains, ice castles, horse drawn sleighs, lake ice skating, skiing, snow shoeing, the list goes on and on.
But this was just not just anyone’s winter wedding… it was my only Sister’s winter wedding. So when she asked me to design her wedding invitations (and everything else that goes with it, there are so many other pieces that are needed for the event), how could I even consider saying “no”?
My sister (and her fiancé) were tough customers. They knew what they wanted, and there was a lot of pressure to live up to the aesthetic of the venue. In the end, we kept the graphic design simple, tried not to compete with the elements that were already in place, and capitalize on the “Canadiana” of the wedding.
Hopefully you’ll agree with my Sister (and her guests) that everything turned out perfect.
