Wedding mementos are a fun and unique way to remember your destination wedding forever.

New memento ideas are popping up all over the Internet, on Pinterest, Twitter, etc. One of the most distinctive wedding mementos we’ve seen comes from Texas-based artist Lee Ware.

You may be familiar with the idea of a couple pouring different colored sand into a vase after they say their vows as a way to commemorate their joining as a married couple. Ware takes this concept one step further by incorporating the art form of blown glass.

Ware’s Unity in Glass creations are truly a work of art.

Couples can choose from a variety of colored-glass crystals, which they pour into a vase on their wedding day. After the crystals have been mixed together, the couple ships the mixed crystals back to Ware in Texas where he then blends them together into a stunning piece of sculptured artwork to last a lifetime.

Ware creates each piece by hand, ensuring the uniqueness of each and every creation. Ware’s glass sculptures capture the beauty and wonderful memories of the couple’s wedding and acts as a lasting reminder of their love for one another.

A singular wedding memento like this is one which you and your loved one will no doubt cherish for years to come. For more information, visit
