Their wedding focus drove Joanna and Breanna straight into a problem. Phoenix law required Brush & Nib to create and speak according to Phoenix’s definition of marriage.


Invitation designers are challenging the law because they do not want to design for same-sex couples

The Arizona Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments in a case filed by wedding-invitation designers who are challenging a Phoenix law protecting lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from discrimination.

The evangelical Christian artists behind Phoenix wedding shop Brush & Nib Studio believe that designing invitations or other custom artwork for LGBT couples would be the equivalent of endorsing their marriage.

They sued Phoenix in 2016 in an attempt to overturn a portion of the city’s nondiscrimination ordinance.

So far, the studio has had little legal luck.
