That was f%#king awesome. Thank you to all who could make it.
Here’s our invite, printed by the fine folks at Kayrock in Williamsburg.
We went to Texas shortly afterwards just to chill out for a few days. Things got WEIRD in Texas.
genius invitation….can I post on Maquette? It’s just so amazing. Congrats btw.
These are seriously awesome…
ahahaha. came here via designsponge. just based on your invitation and that last photo/caption, i love this blog.
LOVE THE INVITE! Can I please post it on my website. C’mon… pretty pweeze? Too cute! Lemme know at firstname.lastname@example.org
Cute invite! Yay, Delaware!
the most amazing invites EVAH!
congrats! your invite is so awesome- absolutely lovely and very clever. (i was directed over here from http://bit.ly/DK7PE). all good wishes to you guys & cheers!!!
THIS IS AMAZING. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS INVITE!
Can I ask– how did you mail it? Was it folded? What size envelopes?
THIS IS GREAT!!!
best wedding invite ever!
Your invitation is genius! Do you do this for a living. Trying to get an original invite for my son’s barmitzvah (he is very into books and that’s the theme – so I like the idea of this kind of invite). I am in Sydney, so will just need the concept etc.
Please let me know
thats the best invitation i´ve seen in my life!!! haha
This invite is remarkable! So cool. Belated congratulations
I am getting married in late October and these are hands down the most hysterical, mood lifting invitations I’ve ever happened to come across. Have you ever designed others? If not, would you consider doing so?
Thank you for bringing originality to what is normally an unremarkable step in the wedding schtick game.
After looking at your website, I am completely awestruck and would love to learn how to make my site as beautiful as yours. I am new to web design and I just can’t seem to get it all worked out. Any pointers that you can suggest would be greatly appreciated. My email address is email@example.com and I would love to hear from you. You can see my site at [url=http://applyforj1visa.info]J1 Visa[/url] [url=http://extendmyvisa.info] Extend visa[/url] [url=http://extendh2bvisa.info] extend h2b visa[/url] Thanks in advance for any tips that you may offer. Please let me know if you would consider a link exchange or other tips.
great invite! found on reddit
I would love to get a wedding invite like that really creative. great stuff
Amazing invitation ….Wish you all the best
Very nice, one of those, “wish I had thought of this” moments.
Well, this is a truly magnificent invitation. Well done!
Hahaha! That is awesome! Loved it! -DP
I know this post is almost a year old, but it made my day.
Greetings from reddit.
great invite! found on reddit.
Wow that is so cool!
Congratulations, both of you. Jill, not sure if you remember me from Temple Beth El in Newark, DE. Found this posted on reddit.com, and then when I finally reached the end of the invitation realized I knew you a long time ago.
Anyway — congrats!
This is one hell of a great invite! Good job!
The typo work on the invite is extraordinary.
Love the Reader Digest condensed version. You should keep these on hand and offer them up when people ask “So, how did you meet”.
this is the greatest invite ever
Great wedding invite! Love the retro periodical them!
Am I the only one who doesn’t get it? Could someone explain?
Nice one. I hope you enjoy the wedding!
This invite has restored my faith in love.
thank you for the inspiration and wish you all the best!
That was so cute Happy Married Life!
found this on digg. absolutely incredible. i love a girl who lives far away and this gives me hope.
This is pretty much describes how things have been between me and my girl.
I cant wait for the “jill moves to NYC” moment
When it does happen, u can bet this is the card I’m gonna be sending out
Well, not this one, but with names changed
Very Awesome. Is that Sancho Panza and Juan there at the bottom?
Awesome. Kermit the frog married Glenn Danzig. How romantic.
Cool. A self-important hipster wedding that feigns to be too-cool-to-care. Congratulations! You deserve one another.
I absolutely LOVE this invitation. I thought Simple Difference was creative but it’s all RELATIVE!
Congrats on it and your wedding.
Did she by any chance go to the VCU Adcenter? Cuz this has advertising creative written all over it. But the unwillingness to move to NYC does not.
This is the coolest story/invitation I have ever seen. I love the internets.
May life bring you many opportunities to display, engage and dazzle others with your brilliance.
Love this !! posted it to twitter with a link back here. http://twitter.com/stevey/status/2180620136
Brilliant, bloody brilliant.
just wanted to say, great invite. i hope you two are very happy together.
I am getting married in two weeks minus a few days, and damn… I wish I thought of something as awesome.
But then again, my story would be a paragraph long.
I am both sad and happy someone sent me to this web page.
Congrats on the vows!
i don’t know you people, but you are awesome.
very, very rad guys. please accept my late congrats.
type is amazing!
those coming from the north will be pass my house to get to the DCCA.
Most beautiful. Would you be so generous as to divulge the fonts used here?
Cheers and congratulations!
fantastic story and invite!
that dog looks like a dinosaur
Love it! So creative..Sounds like a match made! Mazel Tov!!
Superb – truth is more stimulating than fiction! congrats!
I actually work about 4 miles from the DCCA! Nice work.
The invitation is completely amazing!
My fiancée and I have done the exact same long-distance relationship for 6 years and I couldn’t imagine a better way to start a marriage-CONGRATULATIONS!
This invitation almost makes me want to get married. And that’s saying a lot.
Wow thats really inspiring. Me and my girl have been doing the same for the last 4 years, and finally we might be together. Good plan, i like it (dont tell my gf ). Good luck together!!!
Just to let you know (in case you didn’t), someone dugg this under “Best Wedding Invite. Ever.”
You were front page and, as of 6/15 at 4 p.m. EDT, you have 3000+ diggs. Well done.
Cute. I love you.
Yes, things always get weird in Texas.
Greatest. Invite. Ever.
This is the single best wedding invite ever!!
It almost makes me want to get married just so I can create one.
I love your fantastic invitations. The copywriter in me loves them even more.
I’m in love with both of you, man.
Now I want to get wedded all over again so we can try to make invites 1/2 as clever. Very cute!
Seriously, where can we send the wedding presents? How can one say no to such an invitation?
sweet…dorfmans have creativity.
I’m currently dating someone in dubai. We are in the stage where we fly as often as we can back to the each’s perspective continent whenever possible. This is very encouraging. As well as funny and well done. Thanks for posting.
That is one of the greatest invites I’ve ever seen. Best of luck!
That is clearly a ‘shopped invite. I can tell by the pixels. Nice try though.
Saw this all over twitter, it’s awesome and cute.
yawn… Zzzzzzzz. you r 2 kewl… Zzzzzzz.
I have to know: who designed the invite?
Great invite. I don’t think that there are many people creative enough to come up with that idea.
You’re on Digg now too, btw.
May I repost this on http://www.bridezilla.com? I love this invite!
congratulations!! best invite ever.
-regards from austin
Congrats! Awesome story!
Ha, just caught this on Reddit
I didn’t know DCCA held receptions and such.
Congratulations! Awesome story and the very best wedding invitations I’ve ever seen.
what an awful story, get over yourselves
you forgot to mention all the whores matt got in nyc while jill was away
Best wedding invite ever produced. Kudo’s
that is awesome. i love it.
Seriously, the best invitations ever. Best wishes and congratulations!
Well done my friends in another land. Brings ideas to mind and love to hearts.. congrats and forever very more.
Wow, that’s a pretty neat story. Congrats and the best of luck to you both!
PS: Texas honeymoon, I love it! I’m from Texas,
Wow – I just LOVE your invite, and I found it on Twitter.
Looks like a blog right up my alley – I’ll be cruising by again.
Awesome invite! Now that’s original!
saw this on reddit. really nice. hope mine is as awesome.
Can I come to the wedding?
Seriously, how DID you mail that?
I laughed, I cried, I dugg. Thanks for sharing. Wife & I loved it.
This invitation is the amazing one i have ever seen. Nice post
Gr8 you are not afraid of the real daemon called life .
Enjoy , let all your dreams come true
Came here from digg. This is the #1 “top in all topics” link today. Therefore, I don’t know, 30 million people have seen your wedding invite.
Makes me almost wish I could go through the hell of organising another wedding JUST SO I can have an invitation like that.
this is the coolest wedding invitation I’ve ever seen!!!!! love the typography here…
OMG, too long and understatement. At least you found something to do with all the spare time without each other.
woww. this is funny i never comment on anything over the internet but this is worth a bow!
That wedding invitation is awesome!
You’ve got to be kidding. Wouldn’t even have finished reading it.
Pretty kick ass invite their! Congrats to you guys for getting married, aww.
Just so you know, you got 6200+ DIGG’s (6200 individual votes) on digg.com (a major feat/hard to do)
You made digg.com’s TOP image of the day yesterday.
here’s link btw: http://digg.com/odd_stuff/Best_Wedding_Invite_Ever
congrats, I couldn’t stop reading the story part.. honestly, I dont see whats so big about the invite, its clever but not worth even 1000 digg’s in comparison with other things…
/me thinks you haxed digg
I wonder how many times both parties had sex with other people outside of the relationship.LoL..
this is awesome!!!!!!!! love it
Fabulous invite! Mazel Tov
This is an awesome invitation. Congrats! A lot of people know about you now.
How do people even think for a moment that this is real? Do you idiots not realize almost all of the BS like this is fake????
If your marriage is as successful as your invite is creative it truly will be ‘until death us do part’.
All the best.
Brilliant card! I was thinking about an above average mcard, but after seeing yours stellar above average, I can’t get it out of my head.
Completely and absolutely love this!
As someone that works in the industry, that was friggin cool. The only one that comes close is one where the groom (a graphic designer) made a drawing of the couple as skeletons on the invite.
Amazing invitations! Congrats on the wedding too
That’s the most amazing invite!!
What a beautiful story and invite. Makes me feel good just reading it.
Amazing, awesome invitation. And congratulations!
That is the best invite i’ve ever seen, it was awesome! I loved reading the story and I would never throw this invite out it’s so creative.
A refreshing, typographically rich and personal alternative to the average (dare I say, BORING?) wedding invitation. Great job, and congratulations!
That IS the modern fairy tale!
Love is getting on a greyhound bus over and over. Love is moving to a town you don’t want to.
Love is not quitting after six long years apart.
your site rocks man. congrats on your wedding!
Genious. Creative. Utterly real and celebratory, the way EVERY wedding should start!
Congrats to all!
fukken awesome invite!!! congrats =)
Hey guys, fantastic design. I was wondering if I could inquire about some of the typefaces you used; I’m very into mid-century American design and I constantly have trouble finding reliable sources for authentic typefaces. The treatment on your invitation was so masterful, it rocked, way to go. Hope to hear from you in the future!
i’ve never commented on any blog ever, but I came across this invitation and had to say something…this is awesome. i’ve been in an LDR for a few year’s now and its about to get worse (distance wise), but this has renewed my hope in making it work. i hope your first year as one has been great and i wish you all the best for eternity =)
Perfect. Wedding invitations should be an expression of the couple and I have to assume this is.
Congratulations and keep your marriage forever.
I love these guys.
Very nice invitation!! creative and funny and sweet all at the same time.
Awesome invite. Fantastic copy and layout!! Congrats on getting married. I just tweeted about your invite with a link to here.
Nice invite,but who are the dudes pictured at the top of the page?
Love the story and the invitations, so unique! Very cute… all the best in love and happiness in life!
So stealing this idea.
I totally agree with everyone that this is the best wedding invitation EVER, but what I love most is your story — it gives me hope that my long-distance relationship will have a similar happy ending… or beginning. (Because it’s all about me.) Seriously though, dudes, congratulations.
Killer invite!! Congrats on the marriage as well.
Good, good stuff. I’ve never seen anyone entrepreneurial enough to put their story on an invite before!!!!! Fantastic.
Fun! I really enjoyed your blog in general–it’s great to see someone else’s design process…
I made a similarly wordy, Futura-tastic wedding invitation based on El Lissitzky’s For the Voice, which you might enjoy:
Thanks for sharing yours!
thats literally the coolest thing ive ver seen. congrats yo. haha i live in texas its not too bacd
Amazing wedding invite. So amazing that I searched for 2 hours on 2 different computers to find this page to show to someone… Very inspiring story though!

Congratulations! I’m from Wilmington actually, so this was really cool!
OMG!!!! that pic and that invite is the coolest thing ive seen in a while

“May the Honeymoon Never End’!
Suzan in Atlanta
this shouldn’t be in the humor section of stumble as it’s not really funny
seriously some of the most clever invitations i’ve ever seen. Love it
amazing : )
Have a great life together where-ever it may take you.
Found this on 100 Layer Cake and died laughing. Love it… and congratulations!
So VISUAL… I picture images in my head… yet it’s illustrated with just type! Great job!
Landing here from bloggerbuster..
unique blog indeed
OMG the best wedding invites EVER!
Sorry it got weird in Texas, though. Hope it’s all better now.
Big congrats. Have a happy life.
OMG!!!! these are HYSTERICAL!!! I love it!!
When my sister got married they sent out “Wanted” posters with directions to a ranch used for film westerns. They asked people to dress as cowboys (Of course, one joker had to wear a Dallas football jersey), had a c/w band and BBQ, our dad carried a shotgun, and they were married by the Reverend Mustang Sally. They had wedding pie instead of cake (because who eats cake at a BBQ?), and there were horses available for short rides, raised wooden sidewalks, a bar with a swing door serving drinks, and we all had a great time.
You all realize this wedding invitation was dated 6+ months ago?
Pretty cool post. I just found your site and wanted to say
that I’ve really liked reading your blog posts. Anyway
I’ll be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon!
good job! congrats! lol.
These are awesome!
Belated but TOTALLY AWESOME INVITE.
Who cares if it’s not real, it’s still a really well-done, quirky, cute, and all-around FABULOUS invite.
Well done. Well done.
PS. If this is real, CONGRATS!
THIS IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST WEDDING INVITATION I’VE SEEN IN MY LIFE!
Congrats to you guys!

best wedding invitation. ever.
It is amazing. I’ve been killing myself slowly whilst perusing through the different wedding invites and I must say, now that I’ve seen this style, I MUST have it!
Did you use a software or was it designed by a pro??
It is awesome and if you would share your secret with me (us) I would be eternally grateful!!
everything about this.
Think it says at the top who created the invitations (Kayrock or something, too lazy to scroll up). Very cool invitations! Kinda thought hubby up there looks like Nathan from Heroes.
This is a remarkable invitation! I love your break away from the cream-pristine usual bore, which I didn’t think of as boring until seeing yours.
Best of luck!
what an awesome wedding invitation!

I’m inspired and shattered at the same time, something that always happens when I come face-to-face with GENIUS. Incredible idea, stupendous execution and a charming, romantic tale, to boot. Write the script, make the movie.
lol nice invite!
This is absolutely the best invitation I have seen. I would love a copy of the template! Our wedding is planned for October and I think that this would form the perfect template for our “save the date” invites. Thanks in anticipation
Hey- love the invitation. Do you have the original? I would love to use it as a template, if it’s possible.
Let me know!
HAHAAHHAHA, I love that… What fun
LOVE your work! I am wondering if you would consider doing any illustration for a wedding invite?
My finacee and I are both pilots and are looking for someone to design a “Safety Features Card” like the one’s the flight attendants hold up, for our invite.
Let me know if this is something you might consider.
Hi, my fiance & I have been in a long distant relationship for a few years and I would love to use this as our invitation. Could you give me any tips, template, etc? Thanks!
Absolutely love the invite – so original.
hey–just like everyone else, i’m IN LOVE with your wedding invite, and would love to do the same for my wedding next fall. Do you have a template or anything that i can use to create our own???
Oh my goodness!
Congratulations on your marriage!
This is a fantastic invite. I need need it for my wedding invitation.
Please let me know how to purchase a template.
god!.. what a lovely couple, i never wanna be their neighbour )
Je vous conseille de lire un site qui parle de [url=http://mutuellecompareo.blogspot.com/]mutuelle[/url]
Just re-found this link while tiding up Facebook. It’s still one of the most amazing/unique uses of typography and illustration. Love it!
where’s the “like” button!
It is no surprise that you have had amazing feedback on your unique wedding invitation! I just started graduate school as we were falling in love over 454 km, three years later and one year until graduation we’re happy in love and ready to wed.
We wondered if you sell the template – we love the idea.
Wishing you happiness.
I just wanted to let you know these are the greatest wedding invitations of all time, and the inspiration for my own. A million best wishes on your marriage.
Great invite! So refreshing!
Hope you guys are going strong!
