Hebrew Shebrew?

In yesterday's big wedding invitation reveal, I showed a picture that focused on the Hebrew writing at the bottom of our invitations:
This is the famed Hebrew lettering that almost caused my nervous breakdown.

I realized, I never told you what it says or means to us!

Taken from Songs of Solomon, the beautiful letters translate to mean: I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine.

Mike and I are not the most strictly observant Jews around (although we are observant in our own ways -- post for another time).  Regardless, this verse spoke to us.  The wedding crowd finds it quite popular due to it's simplicity and focus on love.   Also Mike likes that his last name bears resemblance to "Solomon"  -- overall it fits well!

The font and image we found perfectly fit onto the invitation.  The sizing and space perfectly lined up.  The drippy effect matched seamlessly with the watercolor peacock.

And boom, our invitation has Hebrew on it!

I found some other people who fancy that phrase, too:

Do you have a favorite verse?
