GALLERY OF LOVE
Who says business and pleasure don’t mix? Newlyweds Tara and
Joel Green are partners at work and play. Their marriage sparked Gallery
of Love, a new Atlanta-based company that offers unique marriage certificates,
created from a series of original oils. The collection includes Impressionist,
art deco, art nouveau, Victorian and pop art designs. Each 12” x
16” certificate is personalized with the couple’s wedding
details. Deluxe frames complete the look.
When the Greens tied the knot, they were so disappointed by the ugly
black and white marriage license from their state that they turned their
frustration into a new business. Together, the two conceived the Gallery
Many brides and grooms order their designer certificate and display
it at their wedding reception. For added fun couples can order a certificate
double-matted and have their guests sign on the matting for an extra
special keepsake. The beautiful document can then be hung in the home
and enjoyed everyday.
“It is our hope that couples who have one of these certificates
on their wall...will be as happy as we are and be renewed, rekindled
and reminded of their wedding day each time they see their certificate,” Tara

One of Karen’s favorite bridal activities is to throw a Spa Party.

the bride by having a Pamper Party. “The girls just love it!” says
Another popular idea for an attendant’s gift is for the bride
to treat her bridesmaids to a Spa Party the day before the wedding or
the morning of the nuptials. Depending on the bride’s budget she
can decide the dollar amount she would like to spend on each of her bridesmaids
then she can let Karen know ahead of time so that she can present gift
certificates to the girls at the end. A Spa Party is also a fun addition
to any bridal luncheon or following the rehearsal dinner.
