This tree carving was done for Joe     
for his marriage proposal to Emily.    
It has four Roses of Sharon at each    
corner and the family shield with the   
words on it and two interconnected    
  circles. It is just behind the restaurant  
the family owns. Joe decorated it with  
candles and Champagne. Reports are  
she said yes.                       

 

 
 
This picture of the carving was taken a year or so later and the
vines on the tree grew around the carving nicely, just in time
for the wedding.
 
Joe's mother commissioned me to make a relica of the tree carving
for a wedding rehearsal gift so they cound have the carved sentiment
forever. I heard they were very pleased. Bon Voyage, Joe and Emily.
