Jessica and Nima

I met Jessica and Nima by chance — my partner and I drove a piece of art back from Marfa and when Jessica came to pick it up we started talking shop. Weeks later we met again — this time for several hours — which resulted in their vintage cigar packaging inspired wedding invitation.

This invitation, like Jessica and Nima, is one-of-a-kind and includes all sorts of fun imagery and symbols. There are kitties smoking cigars, tee pees, a paper airplane to represent their love of travel, tequila and well…a bunch of fun stuff!

To keep the poster commemorative we purposely did not include most of the wedding details. The poster was rolled and secured with twine and a hang tag which directed guests to their wedding website.
