Melissa + Yasuo Wedding Invitation
Image 01 of 06
Melissa Tsang + Yasuo Shimada began their courtship in Japan during the cherry blossom season. This inspired our solution for their wedding invitation: a symbolic heart which transforms into a cherry blossom as an emblem of love and affection. The invitation combines engraved Edwardian Script type with the flower’s seeds.
The card’s embossed pattern combines a unique Asian seal of the couple’s names, the Japanese “tea plant” crest of the Shimada family, and the traditional Chinese symbol of “double happiness” for marriage. Hand-lettered cherry blossom type spells out “RSVP.”
