Deep sky, its swirling and wispy clouds reveal tiny pricks of starlight and a massive rising moon. You may imagine correctly that both bride and groom are deeply connected to New York and love to look beyond the lights of the city to the skies.  The moon is mounted on a reverse-beveled board so it floats in the blue/purple heavens.  What’s impossible to see in this photo is the deeply stippled background of lunar craters under the grey lettering! So take a look at the moon-in-progress:

Another thing that’s hard to see in the photo is the detail on the skyscrapers, each showing the tiniest bits of light in windows.

About 6 different pen nibs were used to write the English text since each line of lettering is very slightly larger than the one preceding it. (Star Wars inspiration!)
