Bouquet Painting
Eternally preserve the delicate and fleeting beauty of your wedding bouquet with an original painting by Canadian artist, Terri Heinrichs.  Terri can capture your bouquet in either impressionistic, traditional oil painting style, or she could paint it in a more contemporary acrylic textured style. Whichever style you choose, what a beautiful keepsake to display in your home!

Based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.  Click here to see how to commission Terri to paint your (or a loved one’s) wedding bouquet.

Paper Cutout Portrait
Purple Paper People will create a beautiful memento of your wedding photo and GUESS WHAT!  One pet is included, with the option to add all your fur-babies.  If you’re anything like me, home is where the pets are- pets are life.  My hubby and I first saw her work in the home of our Marriage Commissioner, which she received for her own 1 year anniversary.

Tickets for a Date Night
More interested in an experience to share together, instead of a keepsake?  A date night to see a concert, comedian, dance or theater definitely counts as a paper gift!  Bonus points if your spouse has been wanting to see this band live or go to the ballet with you.  You have the freedom to set your own budget for this gift too.

I can’t take credit though, this idea came from my wonderful hubby Kyle, who gifted me with tickets to a comedy show along with a wall frame for displaying our wedding photos, which he was proud to point out would be paper too!
