This past weekend I attended the last wedding of my 2018 weddings. It was a beautiful night celebrating friends of mine. The wedding was held at Liberty Mountain Resort just over the Maryland border into Pennsylvania. The bride, Christina, is a huge fan of Christmas so the reception was beautifully decorated for the evening. It’s too bad the weather had been rainy and warm so all the snow was melted off the ski slopes at the resort.
One of my favorite things to do for each wedding I attend is to create an original, hand crafted, meaningful present for the couple. Since Christina loves Christmas, it was easy coming up with the gift for her and Seeley. I created a set of ornaments. One I filled with silver glitter and on the outside painted snowflakes with the date of their wedding. The second, I took their wedding invitation and cut it into strips and curled them up and filled the inside of the ornament. And the third I covered the outside with silver glitter and painted with gold leafing ‘The Seeleys”. Each year when they decorate their Christmas tree they will be reminded of their special day.
