Short Story

Kristin & Joseph's Story
There is much planning for a wedding! You spend time making sure everything is just right. Kristin and Joseph chose a circus theme for their Glenview, Illinois wedding. With 100 friends and family coming, many from out of town, it was important to them to bring a Chicago flavor to the celebrations. Guests enjoyed buffet-style food including corn dogs, mac & cheese and cheeseburgers. Garrets popcorn provided Chicago-style snacks, and cotton-candy made for colorful favors. Center pieces were vintage board games the couple had found antiquing and circus-style games like ring-toss added to the fun.
A custom preservation framing of this delightful set of wedding communications was a lovely way to enjoy the fruits of their planning labor (look at that attention to detail!). Kristin is an interior designer and infused these pieces with her creative flair. The display showcases their personality and thoughtful touches.

Sandy and her husband hosted a Finnish exchange student approximately 30 years ago. This beautifully engraved Lappknife and hand tooled leather sheath was the thank-you gift they received. A friendship was formed and to this day they periodically go to Finland to visit.

Gene & Dawn's Story
When Gene was a child his parents designated 3 oil paintings to be his upon their passing. Many years later, Gene and Dawn proudly displayed the paintings in their own home. On December 26, 2015 they returned home after the holidays to find part of their house in flames! No one was hurt and the fire was contained however there was massive smoke damage to their possessions including the 3 oil paintings. They found a service that was able to remove the smoke damage and subsequently brought the paintings to Seebecks for new framing. They picked them up Sunday, June 25 and were amazed at the results and very thankful to be taking them home where they belong. It was an honor to be entrusted with this last step of bringing the artwork back to life! Our associate, Arielle is shown in the picture with Gene and Dawn.
