One word frees us from all of the weight and pain in life. That word is love. - Sophocles 

Before you proceed to the pictures, a few paragraphs about our unique wedding guest book are in order...

A jigsaw puzzle is very much like a persons life. From the day we are born, our life can be captured by a picture puzzle. As we grow from the age of one day old, more and more pieces of our puzzle's picture start to fall into place, piece by piece, creating a seemingly never ending picture of who and what we are.

Our family, friends, co-workers, as well as our hobbies, favorite TV shows, foods, clothes, pets, travels and the many, many other unique interests that we have, all make up the tiny pieces of who we have become. As more pieces are continuously added to our life's picture, we gradually change and evolve.

In merging our lives together, we are also merging our personal picture puzzles together, as our lives, past, present and future, now become part of the others. Not only are our two lives being directly impacted, but in one way or another, either big or small, the individual pieces that comprise our personal puzzles will feel the changes of our union as well. Those pieces, the people who know each of us, will eventually know each other through our marriage, meeting one another at our wedding reception, holiday gatherings and other social occasions.

It is based on this premise that we provided this symbolic and unique wooden jigsaw puzzle as our guest book. While the front side of each puzzle piece contains our picture, the backside of each contains the signature and a sentence or two from each one of our guests; our closest friends and family members who attended our wedding reception. 

We hope that you realize how important you have been in our lives, nourishing us into who we are today and who we will become in the future. You are all truly a part of our life's puzzle. Thank you for being part of our lives and for sharing our joy on this special occasion. J
