So if any of my “stalkers” are reading this I am sure you have noticed my absolutely horrible habit of keeping up blog posts on my designs. I’m good at keeping up with sessions and weddings, since its pretty easy to post those as I am creating Sneak Peaks for people, but when it comes to posting the designs I love doing so much it’s another story! Usually, the designs are such a longer process–we have a design consultation, I take several weeks to design it from scratch, they come in to approve it, then we actually order it. Once it comes in I inspect in and snap some images of the final outcome and then those images get put into a HUGE pile of “need to blog” stuff that I always figure I’ll get to when I have the time….which is pretty much never, since there is always something more important to get to. Oy. On that note, here I am trying to see if I can get into the habit of maybe catching up on some older stuff each Thursday. TRY is the key word, because I always like to give myself big goalds right at the start of busy season, lol.
For this Throwback post, I am including albums from three amazing and very different weddings I had at the end of 2012. We finished their albums early last year and I am so happy to FINALLY share these with all of you!
Chantal and Cliff had a very unconventional wedding and I loved every bit of it! Instead of inviting a bazillion people, the entire day was filled with under 30 of their closest friends and family. Instead of a wedding party, their parents were their support. Instead of a DJ, an AMAZING string quartet serenaded their guests throughout the night. Instead of dancing, they entertained their guests with a Lion Dance performance. And I feel like i have to mention that their dinner was THE best meal I have EVER had at a wedding (or at a restaurant, even)–my mouth still waters when I think of the amazing steak that was served…After it all, the couple chose to remember their day with a beautiful 8×12 30-sided album covered in classic black leather and adorned with silver gilding and imprinting, topped with their favorite image in a cameo. Their clean, simple theme of black, white, and green was my inspiration for the design and I love how everything came together!

Sandy and Jason’s wedding day was warm and vibrant and filled with all of the people who helped them get to where they are. Unlike the average couple, Sandy and Jason shared the spotlight with a special little guy–their adorable puppy! Dressed to the nines in his cute little bow tie, he was the ring bearer and even got to have the groom’s cake modeled after him! The day was elegant and fun and the setting of the Doubletree was perfect for their style. We decided on an elegant, warm design for their album with a little hint of Texas rustic to it that came out beautifully in the distressed brown leather they chose for the cover. Their 8×12 30 side album looked amazing with the reflectionz image and was perfect for the adorable little 4×6 clones for their parents.

Tanya and David had a big bash at the Par O Club that was more about everyone having fun and celebrating than about the couple who just said I Do. I love that it was a priority for them that everyone enjoy themselves. Tanya is one busy lady (a big hot-shot in the military, which I love!) but somehow managed to create all these gorgeous DIY details around their green and purple fluer-de-lis theme. The room was breathtaking when you walked in and besides that, the atmosphere was exactly how you want it to be–loving, fun, and no stress! Even though it’s been over a year, I still remember moments with such vivid detail–especially Tanya’s father’s face when they presented him with a cake as a surprise birthday gift in front of everyone (BEST expression ever!). This couple was SO wonderful to work with and creating the final album design was bittersweet. To go with their wedding style, I designed their 10×10 30-side book with a combination of rustic and fancy elements and soft greens, purples, and creams. they chose a fun cameo of them enjoying their photo booth to adorn their classic ivory cover and black imprinting that really popped.
