I consider myself a relatively organized person (most of the time anyways), but I can’t help feeling like my brain is a constant war zone between split personalities: one side is an organized, responsible, functioning adult and the other side wants to blow everything off and shop online for dresses with cats on them while splitting a bottle of Moscato with myself.
Case in point- our wedding album. We got married on July 9th, 2010, and I immediately earmarked a few hundred dollars in our savings account in preperation for purchasing a proper wedding album. Responsible adult. However, I just got around to making the album this month (three years later). Internet cat shopper. I also searched for an online deal to get the book for a lot cheaper than it’s retail price. Organized human. I didn’t use the deal before the deadline passed and lost the big discount. Moscato Mamma.
Either way, I’m thrilled to have the book finally done and sitting on our coffee table. I adored our ceremony and reception and now I can walk down memory lane whenever I like. There’s just something about a printed photo that’s so different from the same file on your laptop, don’t you think?
Anyways, I put aside more money than I really needed to make the book (mature) and I so I decided to buy myself a pair of new shoes with the extra cash (www.catstuff.com). Oh well, you win some, you lose some!
i need to get around to doing this also. oh the digital age….
yours looks lovely.
I love this! I totally agree having printed photos are really great. I even do that with my instagram photos sometimes which is a lot of fun.
looks so great! your wedding photos are just beautiful.
did you print the book through a website?
Yes, I did it through http://www.picaboo.com. Not the easiest program to use, but I do like my final product 🙂
You two are absolutely gorgeous!!
You HAVE to check out artifactuprising.com – they are the most simple website for photo books and the most beautiful I have every seen. And really affordable. Seriously – so gorgeous! I think they’re just about to launch an iPhone app to make it even easier to do too!
Your wedding book is beautiful though! I’ve been married nearly 7 years…and I think I looked at my wedding pictures like twice because there are like 3000 of them! It’s overwhelming to think about doing a book, but this post motivates me and I just need to do it.
Your photos are amazing!!! And you make me feel 100% better. My husband made a comment the other day that we had not done an album OR framed a single wedding photo… (we got married in 2011) 😉
hahaha..nice album, love the photos
Welp… I’ve been married over 11 years and I STILL have not made my wedding album even though I bought all the supplies before the wedding and have all the photos (11 years ago was pretty much before the digital age so I don’t even have that excuse!). I’m not sure what my deal is. Before I got married a co-worker told me I’d never actually make my album and that I should just have it done. I scoffed at her and was like, ‘you don’t know me! I’m super organized and crafty and awesome!’… yeah, well, whatever… Thank goodness my mom made me a mini scrapbook of lots of lovely pics from the day so I have SOMETHING to look at and show people… 🙂 Anyways- yours is LOVELY!! 🙂
