I am in love with D! I love the pastels on the chalky background. Feels so romantic! Ok, you're probably sick of me now and I am going away...

hey, not to drive you completely crazy, but what if your spray of flowers got a bit larger and broke into the black space just a small amount? I think it would integrate the two spaces.

very pretty, lena! I am wondering what the circle would look like w/o the stroke on it and maybe lose the white separation between the black and taupe. I think the other white would stand out more then.

I like it! I might make the type block a little larger now, especially the mrs. eaves is filling in a bit. or open up the leading.

I like these Lena but wonder if the banner is competing? What if you tried it without. No need to change a thing however.

Love the pops of pink in this! This design lives for color. I'm not crazy about the green, maybe if if were a little brighter or tonal like the pinks you used

I agree with Susan. C for me. because there smile says it all. Does it not make a difference how the love between conveys so much.

I like Option C as well. I feel like the photo of the couple pops better with the black. BTW, I was just poking around Amy Butler's site this morning and saw she's doing a line in forest green...I guess it's coming back! I guess I've been living under a rock.

This is beautiful, Lena. I feel like the type needs a bit more breathing room - especially at the top. I think scaling down the couple's name would help.
