    Featured, Wedluxe Magazine Summer/Fall 2011 Issue: French Twist

    Wedluxe is now on newstands! During the grind of the season, receiving a magazine with our featured work is particularly rewarding. What stands out about this issue are the awesome concepts that the industry’s bests have showcased in the Glitterati Style Files — Wedluxe’s newest section in the magazine. We are honoured to be invited to work with such creative colleagues, and for our work to be hand-picked by Editor-in-Chief Angela Desveaux! Presented with a wide array of themes and ideas, we worked closely with each event planner to develop our detailed stationery suites. At Palettera, our work is all about story-telling and excellence in design. We experimented to create innovative letterpress and lucite designs, which were all developed from scratch with hand-drawn artwork and meticulous crafstmanship. Our intentions are quite clear — push the envelope and raise the bar for the stationery industry, redefining the idea of luxury invitation design. Thank you to our followers for all your feedback and compliments! Comments are always greatly appreciated, as we continue to create!

    Without giving too much away (because seeing it in print is just so much better than on a computer), here’s a preview from one of our features. Photographed by Krista Fox of Verve Photo Co., and produced by Lisa Allain of Visions of Platinum & Garnet, we present French Twist, a day in provence. French provincial-inspired luxury with a Toronto Twist at the Spoke Club on King Street West.

    We created a hand-crafted wooden boxed invitation that housed a beautiful paper block invitation. To achieve an authentic artisanal look and feel, we made sure each element was carefully cured by hand. Featuring a hand sketched French scroll and fruit illustration, and vintage gold verse pressed deeply into the paper block, the invitation sat gracefully in a bed of hand-cut fabric hydrengeas. Eyes gravitate towards the highlight of the box — a hand-painted moulding in gold, which romantically reflects the candlelight in its matte sheen.

    The sleek cake inspired by French architecture was created by Konstadin at Cakes by Konstadin, alongside her infamous and delicately hand-crafted mini flower cakes. Stunning flowers adorned each place setting and transformed the wine cellar — by Nicole North of Petals, Stems & Leaves. The decor design vision was carried out by Paras Mehta of Design 2 Decor.

    The menus and thank you notes were printed on luxe linen and mounted onto fabric-like cardstock, which feels great to hold.

    There’s more to come on the Wedluxe blog, so stay tuned!
