How many toaster/rice cookers/coffee makers does a newlywed couple really need? (The answer is one, only one.) Granted, most couples have registries these days, but maybe you want to stand out from the crowd of gift-givers. Maybe you want something a cut above the rest, something that symbolizes the celebration of love in a way that forks and gravy boats just can’t accomplish.

Veronika Pollard, the artist behind sarah & bendrix, is the answer. Pollard creates art that is “sentimental, modern, vintage, simple and beautiful.” Each piece is the perfect way to celebrate love with something unique and meaningful without compromising style or originality. From the Large Paper Heart to the Little Grass Hearts, you will find yourself shopping for wedding gifts for people who haven’t even met yet. Don’t worry, you’re not alone.


For the entirety of this theme, not only will one lucky BSP reader win something fabulous daily, but the newly engaged Matt and Lauren will win a gift as well! Many thanks to our amazing contributors for their generosity.

Sarah & bendrix is giving away to one lucky winner a $82  gift certificate AND a $82  gift certificate to Matt and Lauren! To enter to win, please answer the following question by Sunday, October 3, 2010.
What is the greatest love story from a novel or film?
Please begin checking the winners box on October 7, 2010 to see if you’ve won. Good luck!

    An Affair to Remember with Cary Grant……..a wonderful story of never ending love. Romantic with the empire state building….

    Beth W says:

    Beatrice and Benedict from Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing. The wit, snark, and hilarity that results from their awkward friendship/romance gives hope that even imperfect love is sacred and brings joy.

    Marley & Me. Such a wonderful story of how dogs (all pets for that matter!) bring such joy into your life and only ask that you love them. So sweet.

    Claudie says:

    Maybe it’s my obsession with Janeane Garofalo and Ireland, but I have to say The Matchmaker.  I can watch that film over and over again.

    I love the P.S. I love you. I cry everytime I watch it which is at least once a month. I just love how much love they had for one another.

    It doesn’t get any better than The Notebook by Nicholas Sparks. Their love stood the test of time and illness.

    Gina F. says:

    I am such a sucker for a good love story, Sense and Sensibility gets me every time!

    Kestrel H. says:

    Allie and Noah from the Notebook, the book version. I love that they needed some time apart to finally end up together. His endless devotion towards the end of their life is a true example of love conquering all.

    Emily says:

    My vote goes to A Walk to Remember.

    I’m a sucker for The Notebook – <3 Allie & Noah

    Harold and Maude. Jk!! That movie (my dad’s favorite) was kinda creepster, but saying “Titanic” is simply too cheesy (even if it’s true). 🙂

    Pride & Prejudice… The scene where Mr. Darcy & Elizabeth Bennett profess their love for one another… gets me every time!

    Kristen M. says:

    I feel like I should say Twilight just to get booed. Lol. But I think it should be Lloyd Dobbler and Diane Court from Say Anything…he was just the most perfect, sweetest guy. And the boombox scene has become so classic,

    Pride And Prejudice … it has lasted through time. And will continue to do so…!

    I love cheesey romance novels. Any love story with a hunky man and a goregous woman with lots of passion.

    Stefany says:

    Well I don’t know how to pick just one… having just watch p.s. i love you again recently, I might have to choose that story…

    I think that McDreamy and Meredith from Grey’s Anatomy have a really compelling love story. She’s dark and complicated, and maybe he’s not all bright sunshine, but they really love each other. In the last season, when a man is trying to attack Derek, Meredith begs him to shoot her instead. That’s true love – where you’d rather die than see the one you love hurt.

    High Fidelity with John Cusack.

    “She didn’t make me miserable, or anxious, or ill at ease. You know, it sounds boring, but it wasn’t. It wasn’t spectacular either. It was just good. But really good. ”


    “I miss her smell, and the way she tastes. It’s a mystery of human chemistry and I don’t understand it, some people, as far as their senses are concerned, just feel like home. ”

    It’s honest and so good.

  22. 222

    Say Anything… almost any John Cusack love story, but Say Anything is the best 🙂

    Enchanted April. Definitely!

    Life is Beautiful ~ such heart-wrenching devotion and soulful love.

    I love the relationship between George Bailey and his wife in It’s a Wonderful Life! Also between George and his friends. Life happens, stressful things arise, but your dear friends and family will be there for you when you need them, if you’ve loved and appreciated THEM all your life. So sweet. I could watch that movie ANY time of year!

    I think the love story between the Unicorn and everyone who falls in love with her, in The Last Unicorn, is very touching. So many people love the Unicorn, but she isn’t meant to be trapped among people; she has to be free. It’s a different kind of love story, but very beautiful.

    MaggieP says:

    Bringing up Baby! Ah, screwball romantic comedies, how I wish they still made them.

    Alicia says:

    Kind of corny, but the love stories in Titanic get me every time.  Not only Jack and Rose, but all the other couples who were on the boat and had to split up, knowing that the man wasn’t going to make it.  My heart breaks every time I see that movie.

    Andrea says:

    Well… this isn’t a story from a book or film….but can I still use it? This true story was shared at our wedding about how a man gives up his own comfort in life to care for his wife with alzheimers. This is inspite of everyone around him telling him that he should be committing her and moving on. Such a great testament of love and something to aspire to in my own marriage.

    I’ve always loved the “Cinderella” type movies. When the least expected woman is the one that gets the man……”Pretty Woman” is a movie that I’ve seen a hundred times, and it always makes me smile.

    ELizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy from Pride&Prejudice. *Sigh* I love this one.

    My two faves would be The Notebook base on the book by Nicholas Sparks and What Dreams May Come with Robin Williams. Many, many tears were cried over those two.

    Laura Morgan says:

    I would have to say The Notebook, although I am also quite partial to the subtle yet passionate love of Pride and Prejudice.

  34. 234
    Larissa says:

    I don’t know what it is, but still, after the umpteenth time, the ending to ‘You’ve Got Mail’ gets me every time.

  35. 235
    Melissa says:

    I’m partial to the first love stories I was exposed to — Disney Movies.  They definitely impact a lot of little girls’ perspectives on love.  I’d say Beauty and the Beast is my favorite, given its message about loving someone for who they are.

    any that can make me laugh and cry at the same time!

    Annette says:

    Mama Mia! I know – you are surprised…but think about it… A love that lasted that long and is finally realized later in life. Now, that is HOPE !

    I’m a mad fan of the movie Serendipity with John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. It brings about the intriguing question of would you settle for the person who loves you or find the person you are really meant to be with. For some of this, luckily it is one on the same! In this movie, John Cusack doesn’t stop until he finally finds THE woman he knows he was destined to be with.

    Faith and Peter in ONLY YOU!
    The characters, the story line, the scenery, how far the characters will go for love and how perfectly they fit together. It’s just the greatest!

    Love Story by Erich Segal — both the book and the movie with Ali MacGraw and Ryan O’Neal. That timeless story of Oliver and Jennifer stays with you forever. How true are the words: “Love means never having to say you are sorry.”
