A fun alternative to the traditional unity candle ceremony, the unity masterpiece is exclusively symbolic to the love it represents. Powered by innovation and your indubitable creation, these custom canvases are yet another way for couples to commemorate their union as husband and wife.
Featuring a multitude of designs – drawn from both contemporary and vintage styles – these fine art photographs are printed on canvas and professionally stretched over a substantial 16×20 inch wooden frame. With styles to match any wedding theme or home décor, each design is available in 3 versions to match your preferences:
- vow writing prompts of “I promise to”,
- declaration of your love with “I love you because”, or
- with no text at all so your creative freedom can take the driver’s seat.
Using a standard fabric or paint pen, which can be purchased at any local craft store, brides and grooms may take turns during the ceremony writing their vows, sharing their feelings or simply signing their names as a symbolic declaration of their love. The paint color and text is truly up to you. Feel free to use multiple colors that compliment your wedding décor and if your vows are too long write, don’t be afraid to do some leg work beforehand and save something simple for the ceremony.
Write gently and fluidly as if using a normal pen. You may write with canvas lying down or set up on a sturdy easel and be sure to leave ample time for it to dry before handling.
Then, after the wedding – rather than being boxed away like typical unity candles – unity canvas masterpieces are meant to be displayed in your home and admired by all throughout the years. You’ll easily see how this growing trend becomes an instant focal point in any setting… especially since you are allowed to be the artist of your own masterpiece.
