Lauren and Will are both artists with a deep appreciation for history and culture. They choose the Royal Ontario Museum as their venue because they wanted to infuse contemporary elements in to this historic space. For them, we created an envelope that brought everything together with a sleek, angled flap that opened to a hand-illustrated image of the ROM. The envelope liner is intricately detailed with linework that weaved in tones of black, white, copper, gold and grey — a modern masterpiece of detail and craftsmanship.
In contrast, the main invitation is clean and undisturbed from its promise as a focal point: classic typography in black letterpress, with the couple’s names pressed in gold. The design referenced so many components that were meaningful to the couple & their families —art, architecture, history, and culture.
When I think of Palettera, 5 words stand out immediately; Creative, Original, Unique, Artistic, Symbolic! My daughter Lauren is very interested in art, which reflected our choice of the Rom for her wedding. Deborah and her team decided that the architectural landmark would be their inspiration for the invitation and incorporated Laurens’ love of art and the stunning architecture which resulted in a detail oriented, sophisticated invitation. Every aspect of the wedding had Palettera touches, starting from the announcement card to the custom stamps, gorgeous menu cards and other touches that incorporated fall colours and a stunning attention to detail. Bravo to Palettera for becoming a significant creative force Toronto can be proud to call its own. — Ofra Menkes
