Note: Please don’t compare me to Anna. Thanks.
I really don’t think I am very good at doing wedding invites, but since my wife’s family has 11 kids and she was the first married I find myself doing at least one per year. This year is a bumper crop, however, so this is the no.2 of 4 that I will get to work on before the summer is over. The couple gave me the quote, “Oh opener of all doors. Open for us the best door” to work from. It seemed fitting to play off the beautiful doors of the SLC temple, where they were married.
Also, the pattern is based on the Jerusalem Cross. They both have a connection to the Middle East area, but didn’t want to be overt. I like little details like this in wedding invitations. If you know the story behind the design then it means a lot, if you don’t then it is just a nice element.
