Lorne + Eliot

My favourite part about working on custom wedding invites is getting to know the couple. I love the collaboration and making sure I’m providing the best experience possible.

With Lorne + Eliot, they not only opened up their hearts to me to design their invite, but also their home.

The first couple designs I created weren’t hitting the mark, so they graciously invited me over for dinner one night, in hopes that I could get to know them, and their style better.

Delicious food, wonderful conversation and sharing of stories left me with a deeper impression and a clearer sense of a design that would really represent them.

Specifically, they shared with me a trip they took to South America to see The Hill of Seven Colors, and a particular favourite textile they brought back. This, became the new inspiration. Along with a drawing by Eliot, here’s what we ended up with.

From Lorne:
We are a same sex couple from different cultures living in Vancouver Canada. We wanted wedding invitations which would reflect us. After looking through hundreds of invitations with white doves, roses and sunsets we found I’ll Know it When I See It, a design studio set up by two local women. Their invitations were like nothing else on line, they were original, fresh, modern and whimsical.

Eliot and I liked what we saw on the site but were not sure what we wanted and we both wanted different things.  Cassie from I’ll Know it When I See It met with us twice (once in our home). She was able to bridge our different preferences and to make invitations that were so “us” by changing the palette and incorporating patterns from materials she saw in our home.

Cassie was efficient, professional and we really enjoyed the process of being involved in the actual designing of the invitations. Cassie has a great eye for colour and texture and produced high quality professional invitations in a short time frame. We are very happy with our experience with I’ll Know it When I See It and recommend them highly.

Thank you Lorne + Eliot for being so open with me! Sharing a meal is such a great way to connect and I’m so happy to have worked with the both of you. All the best!
