My brother in law got engaged at Disney World a few years ago right before my wedding. :3 We were there for our 'bachelor/ette' party with some friends, and I helped plan the engagement carriage ride.

They are now celebrating their first wedding anniversary and he asked me to make a surprise piece of art for his bride. He originally wanted a black and white silhouette drawing of the carriage with the Cinderella Castle in the background, but I thought that was a little boring. I always wanted to do a lightbox, and my brother in law likes LED lights. I thought I could give them their fireworks too; the fireworks were supposed to go off at the end of the carriage ride, but they got delayed.

So I made this layered lightbox with an led light that can flash and change colors. Cheesy The sky has little holes poked in to try and resemble fireworks.

Here's a WIP from before I added the carriage in.

My brother and sister in law really like it and have already got it hung up on the wall. Smiley

I also made a small video of the piece with the lights for my Instagram, which you can see here if you are interested: https://www.instagram.com/p/B1aiJOhn_lf/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

This is gorgeous! I love the depth you've created. I expect they were utterly thrilled!

Beautiful! I may be a WDW obsessed person, but I am not biased. This is wonderful even if Cinderella Castle was not incorporated!
