Still love the script running along the middle, and the names look better with the color change, but I started to wonder ... how would this work / look if the couple's names were longer (e.g., Elizabeth and Alexander)?

I've been messing around with some other names to see how things could work...it doesn't suffer too much with long names. The steelfish is pretty forgiving since its so condensed and with some tightening of the tracking and proportionate size reduction of the script, the overall feel stays pretty consistent. With super short names it looks better if they float in the center instead of becoming huge and justifying with the safety. Thanks for bringing up the issue though...it was definitely a good exercise to look at some other names!

this is really great. got my attention right away. i think the info type is slightly too large once it is shown at 100%. love love your type treatment, + it could work in a million colors.

awesome thanks! do you think the "and" is too close in color to "rachel"? I'll try some other options to see if it improves legibility.

I agree with Meg that the names are a bit difficult to read, but I like the Burgues in the middle.
