Hey guys, dont tell my fiance I’m letting you guys see these. As these are TOP SECRET.

But seeing how none of you guys are invited to my wedding(unless you all want to come) I guess it wont ruin any surprises. These are the possible Save-The-Dates I have been working on. My brother is a photographer and took the pictures, and I took them into photoshop and messed around with them. These are the choices we have narrowed it down to. These will be sent as postcards. Help me out….which one(s) do you guys like the best?

And here is my beautiful Bride-to-be and my ugly mug!.....

You two are a very nice looking couple. I like the pic on the back of the truck. Second maybe the one outside the industrial looking building, the font in the second one is better. I hope my fiance’ doesn’t see these. You set the bar pretty high here;)

Great Pictures…Good Luck to you. I have been married to my best friend for 33 years.
I like the one on the truck best!
The top one against the stone wall is my second choice.

I like the truck or the wall. Nice to see your faces.
Although the jumping for joy stuff is pretty cool too.

Dem’s gonna be some pretty good lookin children.

Doug, are you using proper lifting technique in those photos? You should know how important that is…seriously congrats on the upcoming event. Any of the photos would great. Good luck.

First I have to ask an important question and I hope I’m not out of line….does she have a sister? ;) You two make a beautiful couple!
My opinion, the one with y’all in the field is my favorite; second, the one with you both on the truck.

Nice photos! I like the one third from the top (she jumping for joy with the vertically-accentuated font) and also the truck photo. Exciting times and best of luck to you!

i guess this shows why I don’t seem to like anything popular, but the second one down is my favorite. Congrats, and all the happiness in the world to you both.

A keeper…and a pretty one at that! I like the 2nd or 3rd pic best, but the truck looks more in line with the “friend” theme though. They’re all really nice. Congrats!

Truck + #1. I like the type face in the first one.. very similar to the ones I did for my brother in law’s STD. Wait, what?
