i know just yesterday i said i'd spread out the wedding talk, and i will, but i'm antsy to share what c and i gave the happy couple cause i'm kinda in love with it: a custom piece of art from alexander & co. that looks like this:
working with alexander & co. on this was seamless, quick, easy and kinda perfect. i found them through a run of the mill "unique wedding gifts" google search (seriously!) and when an image for a "grand hotel" poster came up - which also happens to be in northern michigan - i immediately clicked through to see more.
you provide the names, location, and date. they do the rest. mine arrived in a little over a week (!), but i think the norm is more like 2-3.
their children's artwork is just as adorable.
i am just so happy with the final product. definitely recommend for a different, personal wedding present.
