wedding guest book: revamped

IMG_3800

i love the idea of a wedding guest book; a timeless record of all the people you’ve loved and cherished enough to invite and spend $70 a plate on at your momentous wedding day. a space for everyone, the young, the old, those just walking in, and those a little less sober than when they walked in, to write pages upon pages of just how happy they are for you on this next chapter of your life with your partner. theoretically, it’s lovely. in reality, what actually happens to it? maybe you read it once – maybe once a year on your anniversary – maybe one third of the pages are filled, maybe no one managed to spill wine all over it at one point in the night. regardless, it’s usually put away after the big day, with the photos of the wedding taking precedent as the day’s record.

but, what if there was a different way to keep track of your loved ones in attendance? and then, instead of putting it away, it’s displayed, framed, hung for all to see and marvel at? well, a dear friend and former coworker of mine commissioned me to make such a piece for her this past week, and i’m delighted to share it with you.

modeled after a snapshot she sent of another guest book she’d seen, this is a print with a cutout vw bug, and lots and lots of little 3d balloons for guests to write their names on. afterwards, whitney and scott can frame this and hang it up; a gorgeous reminder of the love they shared together, and with their family and friends! congratulations whitney and scott!
