The holidays bring to the surface warm feelings, happy memories and loved ones from near and far. It’s no different for us here at balance. Sometimes there tangible pieces to those memories – like a collection of Christmas ornaments.

We aren’t designer tree types. We love the mix-up. Our Christmas tree has a smattering of Snoopy, cute animals, glittery bulbs and more. But five of our favorites are ornaments from clients’ weddings over the years.

Each time we see this collection of ornaments, we remember the couples, their wedding day and how wonderful it was to be part of their story. And thus, they are part of our story, too – a part we reflect on every holiday.
Nathaniel and I have our own bit of sentiment on the tree from our wedding too. While our wedding was in October, we purposely chose a few pieces of decor that we knew would transfer to a Christmas tree. So our special day is part of the celebration, too.
In honor of this tradition, this year we made ornaments for our wedding clients. Each one is a different shape and showcases one image from their wedding, imprinted on recycled aluminum and hung with a white ribbon. Below is the ornament we gifted to Lori and John, who got married in June. 🙂
We want to extend our thanks to ALL of our friends and clients from 2013. You are ALL part of story, as we are yours. It has been an honor working with you this year and we look forward to the net chapter in 2014…
~Rissa & Nathaniel
