Robin and Jason, bride and groom.
For our wedding we wanted something fun that told our story. It was important that we had our personalities come across and do something that wasn’t a conventional invitation. We also needed to save money and fortunately we have a laser engraver at work. I wanted to create something I could do my self, only using the engraver.
I experimented with several ways to create something that was three dimensional. After a lot of trial and error I used a system where the paper is held together with slots. This approach is easy to assemble and worked on a number of shapes. After I made a basic shape that worked, I was able to go back in and add detail. We got engaged on a bike ride and picnic, and that became the theme for the save the date. Our wedding was at the Green Building in Brooklyn, NY. I used the building as the main structure of the invitation and illustrated our party on the inside.
