A photo from a beautifully special day is surrounded with a lovely silvery-gold frame that is patterned to catch the light and reflect it back in much the same way the sand on the beach does on a sunny day. The frame catches your eye and draws you in. The multiple layers of mats are lovely, and reminiscent of the mats that surrounded wedding photos from years ago with their slight arched top and stepped out base. We used a neutral cream color accented with a mat that has a bit of a “beach sparkle” look. Although the mats are quite elaborate, they don’t detract at all, but rather draw the eye from the frame directly into the photo. After all, that is where the focus should be!
