Updated, thank you everyone for your feedback! Still happy to accept more if things need more nudging :)

My eye keeps going to the "a" and the little swash coming off of the front of it. Is is possible to eliminate that? I personally like this at 75%!

B for me! I agree with Jessica about the swoop on the A. And the T hitting right at his mustache. Is there any way you can nudge that a bit?

This was tough, I like them both but I think B is great with the opacity at 75%. I agree with Lea and Jessica's comments as well. This is such an amazing design, Erin!

B! Agree about the a and maybe 1 or 2 points smaller just to add my own .2 cents. ha.

B. Still easy to read but feels softer.

LOVE the headline type! The type at the bottom feels a bit like an afterthought though to me. Could you join it together and center it? Maybe you add a location, something like: November 12, 2020 | Carl + Jessica | San Francisco

I LOVE this!! But I agree with Shari's comment, about the type at the bottom. I was thinking that before I even saw her comment. I am wondering about it being connected as one line across the bottom or maybe two lines centered? Something about it being split feels slightly distracting to me. But wow, this is a winner for sure! Gorgeous!!! And I love the wording as well. So unique.

Can the "a" live a little to the right, smaller, in the negative space of the "M" swash? This is so lovely!

love the wording! I might pull "a Million" down a bit to match the line spacing of Times and Yes.

GREAT copy! That "a" up there seems a bit left out... I'm not sure what to do with it, though. Maybe "zhuzh" it up a little with a swash (or capitalize it) and have it bleed off of the top edge? (Typography is a challenge for me, too!)

Love the copy!! I voted B. I think it's hard to read the cursive type in A. I like the fact it pops more in B, however, it also does hide the photo more...one suggestion is to center the text at bottom. It seems off having some right justified and some left justified.

This is hard to choose. I think I go with A, because you see more of the photo. I also believe, that if you print it, the font is thick enough. It small sample looks different on the screen. I agree with Melissa and would center the text at the bottom.

I think your gut is right, Erin. The thinner lets more of the photo peek through.

I like A with the thinner stroke. I wonder if it would be better with the "a" scooted in toward the "M" a bit. It feels a little off to itself right now.

I voted A, but agree to change the bottom type to center justified or see if it will all fight offset on the right hand side.

I prefer A, Erin- the thinner stroke for the script. i feel it perfectly balances the lovely quotation and the photo. you may have a slightly thicker stoker for the bottom text though.
