Ruth 1:16 Calligraphy - Wedding Gift for Groom

I had done the invitation envelope calligraphy for this bride, and she contacted me about doing some more lettering for her. (I love it when that happens. Repeat customers are so gratifying!)

She wanted to give her groom something special for their wedding.  She purchased alphabet photographs to spell out their last name. (Similar to these) She then had a custom matboard made, and hired me to letter an excerpt from Ruth 1: 16 beneath the photo openings.

Ruth 1:16 is a beautiful declaration of loyalty and love.  Although this declaration was made from a daughter-in-law (Ruth) to her mother-in-law (Naomi), it is a favorite and fitting passage of scripture for husbands and wives. The excerpt reads:

Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. 
Your people will be my people and your God my God.  -Ruth 1:16 NIV
