A beautifully designed lace paper depicting the ultimate expectation of a valentine - the joining of two hearts in the marriage ceremony.

  • “How sweet is friendship’s gentle bond, when heart in heart can rest,
  • And holy are the kindred loves that warm the human breast;
  • Still sweeter, holier, is the tie which wedded love can bind,
  • When pure affection forms the bond, and mind is linked to mind.”
