Kelly + Taka

We can all agree weddings are incredibly personal and meant to be a true celebration of two very special people. That’s why Christine and I love designing custom invites where we can put on paper an artistic representation of the couple.

This was definitely the case for Kelly + Taka.

Kelly came to us with two main requests: incorporate owls because they LOVE them, and honour both the Chinese and Japanese culture. This seemed perfectly reasonable to us and we got down to work.

First up, were the owls. Kelly sent me photos of her owl collection for inspiration. To pay homage to Taka’s Japanese heritage, we drew them in a Japanese art style. We wanted them to be whimsical and fun, just like Kelly + Taka.

To really have the invites represent both their heritages, we incorporated in the double happiness character and a simple Japanese style pattern.

We also created the main invitation text in English, Japanese and Chinese. Depending on the recipient, the invite would have the appropriate card. To complete the suite, postcard style RSVPs were included and matching mail labels for all the guests.

There is nothing like summer in Vancouver and it couldn’t have been any more perfect for their big day!
