Three weekends ago, I got together with some of my girlfriends to do some scrapbooking. My plan for the weekend was to make cards. I want to make some card sets for our family members for Christmas. Once I got there, after we had our hugs and hello's all around, I sat down and looked at my bags. I couldn't wrap my head aaround making cards, so I decided to pull out my wedding photos and start working on them. Here are a few of the layouts:
Getting Ready with my Mom and Maid of Honor:
Even though I don't have the best handwriting ever, I do like to handwrite my journaling areas. They make it feel so much more personal to me to see it written by me.
The First Look between my soon to be husband and me on the covered bridge in St James Plantation.
I haven't completed the title page yet but I wanted to show it anyways since I looove the paper I used.
I used Close To My Heart products for all of the layouts. I have to admit, my favorite papers are the Dreamin' papers used in the First Look photos. I didn't get around to finishing all of my titles, but I wanted to show these anyways since I promised them to you...last week.
Here I documented some details of the chapel. We got married in a little chapel in St James Plantation. It has a capacity of 84 people. We fit just perfectly. We had a violinist for our ceremony music - Maura Kropke. She was fantastic. Family and friends helped out with decorating the chapel and the reception. They also made sure it was done "properly" once the florist had finished his job (long story).
And...a layout of just a sample of our photobooth pictures. We had so much fun with this photobooth and are so glad we did it. Otherwise we wouldn't have a lot of pictures of our friends and family! I made this whimsical and fun just to match with the theme of the booth itself.
All of the photos used in these layouts were from Elizabeth Scott Photography. That's a link to the post of our wedding on their blog. A year later and I'm still so happy we chose this couple as our photographers - without even meeting them before our engagement shoot! Something just felt right.
