Shark Wedding Invitations Made From 150 Year Old Science Illustrations

Shark Wedding Invitations with Coral Reef RSVP from Concertina Press
Can you believe this pretty Shark and Coral Reef wedding invitation came from that 150-year-old yellowed science illustration? People often ask about the illustrations on my nautical wedding invites. One of my favorite parts of my job is bringing old science illustrations like this blue-tipped shark back to life using the power of digital photo restoration. 

One of my first jobs out of college was working as a library assistant at the beautiful scientific library at the Marine Biology Laboratory in Woods Hole, MA. When I was there I discovered all the amazing old illustrations hidden away on the shelves, and was inspired to bring them back to life as stationery! No books or illustrations were harmed in the making of these invitations - I work from scans of the originals.

This shark illustration is one of those, and the Shark Wedding Invitation set I made is available for your wedding from either of my online stores:

For the couple I worked with on the Shark invitation pictured above, I changed the font of the invitation and RSVP to be more readable, leaving the names in the original calligraphy font. When you work one-on-one with an invite designer (like Concertina Press!) it's easy to customize your wedding invitations to perfectly fit your needs.

The wedding took place at the Shark Reef in Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV - a beautiful intimate setting surrounded by the aquarium - how perfect!
