"The passing of another year together marks a deepening of the couple's commitment, an accumulation of time irreplaceable. To help in celebrating these occasions are special gifts, one assigned to each anniversary and each with its own material and symbolic value. In the United States, the wedding anniversary symbols begin simply, with paper and flowers, and gradually increase in substance and value. The order of gifts reflects the investment that the couple gives of themselves to each other. In Germany, by comparison, couples use a list of symbols that represent the progressive strengthening of the marriage relationship."

Nowdays many couples are looking to shade this tradition with original gifts. Buying the traditional gifts, looking for a crystal for the 3rd wedding anniversary or desk sets for the 7th wedding anniversary has become an overused habit.
DocoArt offers an original idea for celebrating your anniversary with the one you love.
Using your photos that capture a memorable moment and symbolize your love: a wedding photo, a honeymoon photo, dancing together, or even a moment of laughter - we will turn it into a handmade oil painting that will make this special moment alive once again.
An oil painting has the unique quality of making landscapes come alive; Our artist will create a painting for you to hang above the fireplace, in the living room or bedroom. A painting can last longer than any photo and bring to life the moments you want to remember the most.
