A Modern, Formal White Destination Wedding in Toronto
Jessica and Jed
For many people, art imitates life. But for Jessica and Jed, a fashion stylist and an artist, respectively, art is life. With that in mind, the California couple planned a contemporary Canadian affair filled with inspired touches die-cut blind-embossed stationery and a 16 mm film of doves in flight for the cocktail area.
Invitations and Rings
The couple's invitation suite was embellished with vintage stamps depicting love and bird themes. And simple gold bands are a nod to the couple's minimalist aesthetic.
Stationery, Jonathan Wright and Company
"Bride" and "Groom" pins were picked up in England by a friend.
