I’ve been going to share this canvas on my blog ever since May.
I was very excited about it and I still am!
I won a giveaway for a canvas from Standard Canvas on Revive Our Hearts Instagram back in May the week of our anniversary.
It was such fun timing!
Standard Canvas creates these beautiful canvases personalized with your wedding vows.
I browsed through Standard Canvas’ website and scrolled through their Instagram gathering ideas.
I wanted a paragraph from our wedding ceremony and I’d seen a canvas with the names and designs like above and really liked it.
I emailed Standard Canvas and shared my choices and ideas with them and asked them if they could incorporate some wheat into the design.
They were wonderfully kind to work with.
They put together a few designs and emailed them to me to look at.
I browsed through them and decided on my favorite.
I shot them one more email with my final decision. Standard Canvas expertly printed out my canvas and soon had it on its way to my house!
I love having it hanging on our bedroom wall.
If you’re looking for a way to showcase your wedding vows or wanting a unique wedding gift, definitely check them out!
Here’s our vows.
Here’s the part of our ceremony that’s printed on the canvas ~
The love of God is bigger than the skies over Kansas. It is marriage’s greatest blessing. Without it marriages die or at best are sacrificed on the altar of mediocrity. But with it your marriage will thrive because you are true friends rejoicing in the supreme knowledge that God is love. This love reaches down into life in its most ordinary forms. It helps you perform the menial tasks of life. Duty can make you do things well, but love will make you do them beautifully. It is a blessing when a husband after a long days labor feels eager to return home because he feels especially welcome there. He has a sense of joy in knowing that what he is working for is being appreciated and he can enter through those brave wooden doors of home and find a sanctuary where happiness reigns because love dwells there. It is as though God has left His breath upon the walls because the fragrance of true friendship is there. Love can relish the simple things that make up living together. Errands run, floors swept, machinery fixed, food prepared, clothes washed, fields planted, work loads accomplished; provider and help meet laboring together and for each other. It will be a lot of ordinary living but in this, marriage is a great way to reflect and share the love of God. It is filled with these special features of goodness. Because two have become one, neither need be lonely; because two have become one, neither need be afraid. Jesus said that where just two were gathered in His name that He would be in the midst of them. This is a great blessing! Because two have become one, sorrow is easier to bear; because two have become one, joys are shared and dreams are fulfilled. Because two have become one there is freedom for love to be expressed. Expression of love in marriage is one of the bright designs of God.
My dad married us and printed out his message for our wedding ceremony and gave it to us. It’s very special to have it. It was hard to know where to begin and end on the portion I had printed on the canvas. I had to choose, though, because it wasn’t going to work to print it all on the canvas! 😉
If you end up ordering a canvas, I’d love to hear!
