Penn State Thumbprint Guestbook by Hand-Painted Weddings Penn State Thumbprint Guestbook by Hand-Painted Weddings Penn State Thumbprint Guestbook by Hand-Painted WeddingsIt is back to school time again! As the college students are headed back to campus this week, I wanted to share with you a fun way to commemorate your alma mater on your wedding day by working with me to create a custom University themed Thumbprint Guestbook.

This couple, Kim and CJ both went to Penn State University together. I worked with them to create this thumbprint guestbook which after their wedding will be a unique keepsake adorning their walls for years to come.

At Kim and CJ’s wedding in a couple of weeks, their guests will sign the path towards the Nittany Lion Shrine with their thumbprints. As you can see, I painted the fall foliage in honor of this fall wedding, and customized the Penn State sign with the couple’s name and wedding date.

Whatever the University or College, every campus has a section of it that resonates with the campus community…that would be the personal spot to feature in your Custom Thumbprint Guestbook.

In the Studio: Custom Hand-Painted Thumbprint Guest print

Custom Thumbprint Guest print by Hand-Painted WeddingsI’m excited to share this custom hand-painted thumbprint guestbook I just finished for a couple who is getting married in Long Island at the end of the month. For their Save-the-Date the couple had etched their names and wedding date into two planks in a fence along the beach. They took a photo of the scene and used it for their Save-the-Date. When the bride came across the Hand-Painted Beach Thumbprint Guestbook she got the inspiration to tie this creative element into her guestbook and contacted me to customize this piece especially for her wedding. I love how an idea can translate creatively into different aesthetic aspects of the wedding!

Lighthouse Thumbprint Guest Print

Lighthouse Thumbprint Guest Print by Hand-Painted WeddingsI listen to a series of guided meditations on my phone from time to time to get centered. Most of them guide me to picture myself in a calm, relaxed location. I usually find peace in the woods. I find myself drawn to the trees and the mountains with leaves crutching under my feet, or sitting on a sweeping porch of a cabin watching the sunrise.

But lately, I have found that when asked to go to my place of peace, I have picked the beach instead of the woods. I hear the clapping of soft waves and the vast sky above with sand in between my toes.

I haven’t made it to the beach yet this season, but I’m ready! Today and tomorrow I am sharing with you TWO beach-themed thumbprint guest prints.

Today’s thumbprint guestbook features this beautiful lighthouse and a row of detailed rocks. If you zoom in you will see a fun old-fashioned plane and an egret (the bird) perched on one of the rocks in the foreground.

The thumbprints that your guests add to this guestbook can act as cobblestones or if you choose a tan or silvery ink pad, they can act as footprints in the sand. Both are beautiful! This would be a great addition to your beach-themed wedding!

The Lighthouse Thumbprint Guestbook is available in the Hand-Painted Weddings Thumbprint Guestbook shop.

Country Cobblestone Thumbprint Guestbook

Country Cobblestone Thumbprint Guestbook by Hand-Painted WeddingsI’m working on a few more Thumbprint Guestbooks. The first one I will show you is this Country Cobblestone Thumbprint Guestbook. The couple’s names go on the top piece of wood on the sign and the wedding date goes on the bottom.

Just as with the Cobblestone Thumbprint Guestbook, guests “sign” with their fingerprint to fill in the cobblestone path.

I love the warm appeal of this guest print. It is the essence of a summer day at sunset!

This piece will make a beautiful keepsake on your walls for years to come. It beautifully symbolizes the support your family and friends have on your path as a couple.
