Check This Out: One Couple's Great Movie Poster Wedding Invitations

July 29, 2013

Wedding Movie Posters

We've seen plenty of fanmade movie posters come across our eyes, but these posters take a love for film to the next level. Joshua Watson and his wife Rachel Van Der Merwe decided to inform their friends of their engagement and impending festivities for the marriage by recreating the movie posters from some of their favorite films like Inception, An Education and Walk the Line. With photographs from Jordan Nakamura, the posters are flawlessly recreated featuring Josh and Rachel in the images themselves along with some of their wedding party, a few clever "review" quotes and taglines and some fine Photoshop work.

The engagement takes a cue from the poster for An Education:

There are a couple other posters that utilize the TV shows "How I Met Your Mother" and "Mad Men," and you can see those at Jordan Nakamura's Tumblr (via On the project, Nakamura writes, "It was fun shooting with these two playing roles in some of their favorite films and television shows, and we even were able to trick Google image search." This is the kind of fine work that makes other couples jealous, and I sincerely hope that my nuptials are hyped just as stylishly. A Star Wars wedding just seems a little too far on the nerd side of things, but clever cinematic inspired invitations like this arejust awesome. Cool stuff?
