For both? http://www.coatsandc...7&hiword=wt1647+
and then one more is located here http://www.freepatte...html?cat_id=300 and is the lovers knot afghan.

the fisherman's ring square (mentioned in the post above) can be found in afghan squares.
there also many other very pretty patterns available for free on the site.
here's a link to the wedding ring quilt on coats and clark (looks ambitious!)

My Heart Belongs to Baby (blankie)
This one is for a doll, but darksi gives the stitches so you could make it larger. It's rows of hearts. Very cute.
Or you could find heart squares if you want a portable project.

The one Fritzerbear just posted would be nice for a wedding gift!
I found two lovely ones in my books:
In Herrschnerr's Blue Ribbon Afghans, the "Diamonds and Rings" one would be very symbolic....
In Best of Terry Kimbrough Afghans, the "Loving Hearts" one is beautiful. The border is hearts!
And the wedding ring quiltghan is great for a gift: http://www.coatsandc... Ring Quilt.htm
I also came across this thread and thought it might help: http://www.crochetvi...=wedding afghan

Its also from the book 'Best of Terry Kimbrough Afghans' Leisure Arts #3209
Its called Hearts Aplenty. Beautiful filet hearts with pretty zig zag top and bottom. That book has lots of amazing choices for a wedding gift.
