Jessica + Tim

Christine and I are both fans of Frank Gehry. The first time I experienced his architecture, it was in Bilbao, Spain when I unexpectedly visited the Guggenheim Museum. I was blown away and a lot more interested in the building than the art it contained (oops). The admiration for his work has continued ever since.

How fitting it was then, for us to work on this project with Jessica + Tim! When Jess told us her wedding would be at the Art Gallery of Ontario (redeveloped by Frank Gehry), I immediately thought of the architecture and using it as a focal point in the designs. She and Tim both grew up in (and love) Toronto, and really wanted the stationery to be inspired by the venue and city. No problem!

Jess + Tim wanted a fun and modern look so we created line drawings of the amazing space that is the AGO as the main design for the invitations. We kept the look very clean and printed on extra thick white card stock.

Next, to show off their love of the city, we incorporated in a drawing of the iconic skyline. Finally, to add a personal touch we created a guide and map sharing fun facts of the happy couple and their history in Toronto.

For the day of pieces, we wanted to reflect the art aspect of the venue. We took the line drawings and turned them into artistic sketches for the programs, menus and table settings.

From Jess:
Wedding stationery and having unique elements that really suited our style was very important to us for our wedding day.  We really wanted to play on the themes around our venue and city.  I was so lucky to have found Cassie and I’ll Know It When I see It!  They really ‘got it’ and came back with truly fantastic and unique ideas. They were extremely patient through several rounds of changes, and genuinely cared about us.  They helped us develop everything from an e-save the date, to our printed invites, to our seating charts, menus, table numbers and thank you cards.  They went as far as to do research around our ideas and source out specific materials and where we could buy them, sending sample photos of how everything would look. And after all of that they even did some additional signage for our ‘sweet and salty’ table at no extra charge!  There were no issues whatsoever with being in different cities or time zones.  I got so many wonderful compliments on the pieces that they designed for us.  People were blown away by all of our unique and personal touches.  A huge thank you to Cassie and her team!!

We are so lucky to work with amazing couples and Jess + Tim were no exception. We love doing projects that span the entire wedding from pre to post and this was one of our most comprehensive. Thank you Jess for being a wonderful client and we wish you and Tim all the best!
