So I wanted to share one of my favorite wedding albums from last year. Hannah and Chris had such a lovely summer wedding in Brooklyn, and they chose a luxurious linen-covered album to complete their wedding package. Drawing from their favorite photos, I designed a classic album that met the clean and sophisticated feel of their beautiful wedding.
When I received the final album from my amazing album vendor, I literally gasped with delight at how gorgeous it was. Let's walk through some photos of my unboxing of this beauty!
All of my albums come in a classic white protective box, with a soft fabric cover and an album care card.
Opening up the protective fabric bag, you get to see this amazingness. :) Hannah and Chris chose a lovely gray linen that perfectly matched their sophisticated bridesmaids' dresses, and the linen cover is just so luxurious -- it catches the light perfectly, and it actually looks like watered silk! They also picked this classic serif font for the embossing on the front cover, which tied in well with the literary theme for their wedding.
These albums are perfectly bound, with sharp corners and tight edges all around the cover. They're substantial books and will definitely stand the test of time!
And the pages! Oh, the pages! :) The photos are printed on Fuji crystal archive paper, which provides perfect color rendition on paper rated to last for generations. Each page is mounted on 1mm thick substrate, giving it a lovely substantial feel. The albums lay entirely flat when open -- I was holding the page up slightly in the photo below just to show the thickness of the pages. :)
All of my albums are flush-mount, with designs going across the full open-page spread and all the way to the edges of the pages. There is no cut down the middle -- the album vendor I use has one of the tightest micro-creases in the industry, allowing for a virtually uninterrupted design across the two pages.
I had so much fun telling the story of Hannah and Chris' beautiful wedding ceremony. And the album so perfectly showcases each of their lovely photos!
Seriously, I could stare at this linen cover all day. And it's only one of the gorgeous cover options I offer for these luxurious heirloom wedding albums! My couples can choose a pearlescent photo-wrap, linen, silk, or leather cover, all in a variety of colors and options. I love working with my clients to select the perfect album cover design to capture the feel of their weddings!
I'm gushing a lot here, but that's just how much I love these albums. I really would love for all of my clients to have such a gorgeous keepsake from their weddings! If you're interested in talking to me about capturing your wedding, contact me to set up an initial consult!
