The City of Lights - Anchorage

We are headed north, way north... all the way to Alaska! Because Anchorage is in the dark most of the normal day lit hours in the winter, everyone puts up as many lights as they can to brighten up the city. Hence "The City of Lights" title was rightly given.


This invitation is a lively twist on the traditional wedding invitation, The Anchorage offers a layout incorporating one large photo of the bride and groom, flanked by three smaller photos of the couple. Choose from among a variety of script fonts and the perfect background color to flaunt your fabulous photos!
