Hollywood Inspired Wedding Invitations

By Hanssie on July 24th 2013

Traditional wedding invitations? That’s so last season.

California photographer, Joshua Watson and his wife, Rachel, a TV and film producer, took their wedding invitations to the next level by recreating posters from their favorite movies. With help of their photographer, Jordan Nakamura, the Watson’s sent guests a DVD case with one of the posters as the cover and a CD of their favorite music inside to announce their June 1st wedding.

I give this creative couple two thumbs up.

Casablanca vs. CaliforniaWedding-Invite5

What do you think? Good idea or too cheesy? Is this a trend that we’re going to see pop up like the wedding party being attacked by a T-Rex as mentioned in this T-Rex vs. AT-AT article?

    All you need to do to master the art of craft making is to spend some time practicing and improving your skills.
    In case you voted for all 10 choices, you gained $10k.
    There are other objects that have multipurpose uses as well, some of which depend on which expansion you have.

    But the in this age of internet together with online information, someone seeking information can
    potentially have Cialis information from the innumerable websites dedicated for it.
    Try to automate the insertion of your Adsense code into the webpages using SSI (or server side included).

    The funniest part of the book for me was where Labro described
    American men as falling into two camps: those who could crush beer cans with
    one hand and those who could not. Through this, the entrepreneur will know if there’s a conflict
    with another name online. C’est moi qui me manque.

    The original bill as passed by the House included a measure calling for construction of one
    in the District of Columbia. The Cincinnati UCI3 Cyclocross
    Festival originated the multi-day cyclocross festival concept in North America and last year debuted America’s
    first-ever three-day UCI-sanctioned festival with races in
    Northern Kentucky and Ohio, all within the Cincinnati metropolitan area.
    Many are saying that the venue is the most beautiful they
    have ever seen for a cyclocross race.

    Sure, these were fun to reproduce, but there is nothing “inspired” or “creative” about the process. This is blatant plagiarism.
    I find it interesting how many photographers cry when their photos gets used without permission, yet many won’t bat an eyelash when the opportunity comes to steal other ideas and photos (referencing the Inception background).

      Johnny fun ruiner up here^^^. When it comes to this stuff, no one is claiming they created it. It would be a fun homage, built to allow a different approach at the typical wedding announcements. A great man once said “Art is either plagiarism or revolution.”

      I looked at my copy of Inception and there is absolutely no indication of ownership of the picture. The other invitations didn’t even use the original pictures, they have the participating people posing in a similar way to the actors. Copyright is about profit and credit. These invitations were not sold anywhere.These where not “reproduced”, they were ‘produced’. They are fun, and artistic, and a way to replicate something that everybody can relate to. The inception background is the only one that has the same image, and like I said, it isn’t for profit, and there is no indication of ownership on the Inception image. http://iplaw.hllaw.com/2011/07/articles/copyright/warner-bros-largely-wins-appeal-in-copyright-infringement-case-involving-use-of-film-publicity-materials-in-the-public-domain/ as this page suggests, you would be in trouble for trying to sell and/or claim ownership of an image, but they are in the public domain so I think people are allowed to have some fun. Art inside of art….. art inception…..
