This INSTANT DOWNLOAD Marriage Certificate and Family Record is a JPG image file.
This Wedding Certificate can be printed at home on standard US Letter 8″ x 10″ paper, or taken to a local printer to have it turned into a larger work of art to frame and hang in your home. It looks phenomenal printed at 16″ x 20″, and put inside an antique or vintage frame.
This particular marriage certificate has some truly unique features. The central image is a gloriously draped American Flag crest, with two doves approaching a fountain of holy water below. There are decorative frames, where the newlyweds can paste their photographs, with 6 simpler, oval frames below to include the pictures and birthdays of important ancestors and family members in the marriage ceremony. Hand-drawn vines, flowers, scrolls, and gold embellishment adds a feminine touch to this otherwise nearly Federal style design. The original Lithograph dates back to 1869 Detroit, the year the first transcontinental railroad was completed in the U.S. There is room for witness and minister signatures, and all of the dates from the original documents have been erased so you can enter the correct information for your contemporary wedding into this old-timey, historic document.
I’m proud to be an LGBTQAI+ friendly shop and am always happy to alter historical designs to fit with less traditional family structures or wildly creative design ideas. Please send me a conversation with your custom order requests. I love opportunities to become more accessible.
