Lovebirds Alan and Jill decided to have their wedding in Las Vegas and just a small group of friends. With only 20 invitations to produce they took the opportunity to make them as handcrafted as possible. I could recount the whole process for you but Alan has done a great job of it on his own web site describing everything from how the composite image came to be, to convincing an alteration shop to thread the final invitations.

And as if that weren’t enough handcraftedness, the freshly wedded couple decided to thank their guests with equally complex favor boxes that contain color-coordinated Jelly Beans, Elvis glasses and a $5-chip.
