Custom guestbook for Doris and Jonathan

This weekend, Doris and Jonathan will say their wedding vows! I hope that this custom guestbook gets filled up with messages of joy and love, and brings them much happiness for years to come.

Having recently designed their save the dates, I brought back the botanical theme with handmade paper with embedded petals (that I've been saving for the right project for years!), silk flowers, gilt silkscreened patterned endsheets, and ribbons and bookcloth in hues of aubergine and sage. Using an extra copy of their invitation, I created an inlaid name placard, to carry over the design and make it more unique to them.

Here are some shots of the planning stages, as I played with ideas: 
It's always a lot of fun to try to create something meaningful for a wedding, based on cues from both the event ephemera and the people about to get hitched. Congratulations, guys -- it has been an honor to help make your day more special!
