I don’t know how to do that, and I know you’re not asking for opinions, but that is gosh-darned hard to read!  Will you be changing the font or something?  Either way, good luck!

This is a very nice piece of typography and will need a lot of attention to leading(the space between lines), justification and sizing to create. It would be easiest to create in InDesign. I would create a custom container with the pen tool in a heart shape. You can then use the text tool to write within this container. Keep in mind some of the words are curved (mr. and mrs.) so you would have to create these separately and place them on a different layer.

There are also many custom embellishments you will have to add to the text to make it perfectly heart shaped.

If you were to create this in Illustrator it would be far more painstaking. You can create each word, create outlines, curve it if needed using 3D effects, and place it. I would use a picture of a heart and place the text over it as a guide.

If you find this task is too difficult to finish then perhaps you could commission a designer to copy this design for an hourly rate and then you could print it yourself. This would cost much less than $1,000


Good luck!
