Wedding Seating Chart

This unique wedding seating chart was designed for the wedding of Timothy Yen and Anne Brooksher in Queens, New York. The peach tree is a symbol of happiness in marriage. Each table is represented by a peach and each leaf surrounding the peach represents the person at the table. Each guest’s name is calligraphed on the leaf, and the bride and groom’s families have special highlighted leaves. The bride and groom are represented by a monogamous nesting pair of cockatoos at the couple’s table, and beside them is a Chinese charm that is traditionally carved out of peachwood and signifies longevity and auspiciousness. The entire design is crafted by hand on Japanese Unryu paper. The completed artwork was framed and displayed in the lobby of the wedding reception, where the guests could locate their seats. Matching placecards were printed for the tables. The wedding chart later became special artwork for the bride and groom’s home.
