Thomas was really trying his very best to procure the most unique wedding favors for his soon to be bride. He promised Nell that she would be pleasantly surprised by what he came up with. The fact is he had no idea how he was going to pull it off, but he promised and he would find a way. After weeks of searching to no avail, he decided to go to an artist friend and have her create something. Finally his friend came up with what he thought was a phenomenal idea. She created a pair of dolls that depicted Thomas and Nell and went on to actually make them for him. She later told him they were her wedding gift to him.
