Theresa & Bob: Passport Inspired Multi-Cultural Wedding

We can't believe how cool this wedding is!  We want to thank photographer Heather Parker again for sharing another marvelous multi-cultural wedding.  We love to see couples who not only embrace Asian culture, but also mix it up with creative new ideas and traditions.

Theresa & Bob get ready for a journey of a lifetime with these amazing custom passport invitations that they DIYed! Theresa is an architect and with a design background like that, she put her fiance to work, and together made the coolest wedding invitation we have ever seen.  And that's not it... they get even more creative! During their wedding, guests were encouraged to bring their own passports and get stamped with a rubber stamp from various tables as a way to meet and mingle with other friends and family. What a memorable experience for their guests!
