I just love this Martin Parr-esque photo of Kelleth and Chris’s wedding cake by Jeffrey Chan.
At many weddings the cake gets forgotten or just ends up on the sweet table. The reason I like this photo is that it shows people actually ate the cake. As tradition has it, all those who eat a piece of wedding cake will have good luck. So don’t forget to serve your cake to all your guests!
Kelleth and Chris spend much of their time travelling for their jobs, she is a model and he, a photographer. Kelleth and Chris had been planning their wedding for six months but, because of their schedules, left most of the details to the last minute.
The couple wanted so badly just to be married they thought they would have their ceremony at City Hall but decided to have a more, “wedding-like”, celebration and booked the Toronto Wedding Chapel.
After the ceremony they had a fun, casual, photo session with photographer Jeffrey Chan and then it was off to the nearby Pickle Barrel restaurant for dinner, good conversation, and of course, wedding cake.
Wedding planners we have a new name for you to add to your rolodex, Lisa Mavian, a Toronto calligrapher!
We have so many talented wedding suppliers in Toronto but could always use more calligraphers. When Lisa Mavian, of Post Calligraphy, showed us her work we wanted you to know about her.
Lisa is a graphic designer and self-taught calligrapher. For as long as she can remember she has always been attracted to letters, words, numbers and text. She describes her style as modern, based on classic forms.
Lisa has designed invitations, envelopes, table numbers, save the dates, gift tags, chalkboards, and is currently working on calligraphing a line of tea towels and napkins.
So if you’re looking for a fresh look to an old tradition, call Lisa.
