Quilled Quaker Marriage Certificate

In May I had the pleasure of quilling this marriage certificate for an engaged couple in North Carolina.

The bride and groom requested a pastel floral motif to complement their beach wedding. We emailed back and forth about design elements so the final layout would be just what they envisioned - a part of the process I always enjoy.

That is just beautiful. I'm going to have to go read more about that. My daughter is planning on getting married. It's not for a couple years yet but she might like something like that

Ann, that sounds great. If your daughter likes the idea, I'm sure you can quill a beautiful one for her wedding.
