Good Ol' Mama Nature surprised us here in Rochester with hailstorms, but we hope the Sunday surprises poured upon you were more pleasant - and we hope they didn't include any spilled coffee from young hands bringing you breakfast in bed! Did you receive something special from People's Pottery from your husband, children, or mother? Perhaps a Pandora keepsake, Kiss & Dream diamond, NanoRosetta medallion, serving piece for the kitchen, accent piece for the living room, souvenir for the nursery...or a gift certificate that gives you a reason to stop in and see us?

1. This woman who wore her wedding ring for an entire year...without even knowing it. The stone was tucked into a pine necklace that her boyfriend had made her; then he popped the seal AND the question. We believe this serves as true testament to the couple's commitment: him for crafting the necklace and her for not losing it!
2. These intrepid souls and kindred spirits who got married at the top of their game...on Mount Everest. They exchanged vows and rings at 17,000 feet and minus 11 degrees Fahrenheit. If you thought your wedding was an epic adventure...check out the Instagram feed.
3. The inventor of prosecco and Rosé popsicles. We can't think of a better refresher to serve guests who are thirsty for something new (but not old, borrowed or blue).
4. The menagerie of puppies, llamas (yes, llamas...they clean up nice) and unicorns that can attend your wedding for a fee...one that's sometimes donated to animal causes.
