My sister got married almost five years ago. She was the most beautiful bride and her wedding day was amazing. Her photographer John Li took beautiful photos of the wedding and all the photos I used for the scrapbook were taken by him. I was able to download all of my sister’s wedding photos from John’s website. I sifted through the photos and made a list of all the pages that I wanted to create.
Next I ordered the photos. Since these photos were for a wedding album, I ordered the photos with a metallic finish. The metallic finish was more expensive and I wasn’t sure it would make a difference. The metallic finish made a huge difference. The details were so vivid and I felt like I could reach right through the photo. I ordered those pictures from scrapbookpictures.com which is no longer in business but I know that Persnickety Prints offers photos with a metallic finish.
I put together a case of scrapbooking supplies to pull from when creating these pages. I wanted all the pages to coordinate together so I chose black, white and silver paper/elements. I also added some blue accents because that was one of the wedding colors and I felt the pages needed a little color pop. I completed this scrapbook almost 4 years ago and I still have the case. I probably have enough supplies to do the same wedding album over again!
- black and white patterned paper is “Black and White Hearts” by Chatterbox
- embossed white cardstock is from the Embossed Paper Stack from DCWV
- flowers are from Prima and Heidi Swapp
- glitter cardstock from DCWV Glitter Stack
- silver and black gold chipboard stickers from K & Company
- Cricut cartridges use: Storybook, Opposites Attract
- other cardstock from Bazzill
- Creative Memories wavy paper cutter
- Making Memories paper cutter
- Jolees dimensional stickers
- assorted adhesive backed rhinestones
- chipboard letters that I am guessing are from K & Company
The scrapbook has 24 pages and I will share with you the first 11 in this post and the last 13 in another post.
I love the entire scrapbook but I think the cover page and the final page are my favorites.
I added the text about their wedding on the photo before it was printed. I think it was one of the first times I ever used Photoshop Elements.
John Li did an amazing job photographing all the moments leading up to the ceremony. I wanted to keep the style of this album simple so the photos would shine and this layout was no different. My dad doesn’t like taking photos so it was special to get photos of him all dressed up!
I was at a crop when I was working on this layout. One of my friends suggested the title for this layout and I was in love.
I have always considered my sister beautiful but she practically glowed on her wedding day.
I didn’t see my brother-in-law Kevin until the wedding ceremony but I thought he looked quite handsome.
The right page of this layout is one of my favorites because the photo is slanted and is matted by three different papers. I love this design and think I need to make it into a template!
There were only two people in the wedding party and I was one of them! Kevin’s best friend was his best man.
I don’t have much journaling in the album but what I do have I hand wrote. I felt like that gave the album a more personal touch. Doodling on the large die cut also gave it a more finished look.
My daughter Kara was the flower girl. At the time she was only 2 and 1/2. The makeup artist was late on the day of the wedding so while we waited for him, Kara got her own little photo shoot with the photographer.
She was super adorable!
I hoped you enjoyed this glimpse inside my sister’s wedding scrapbook. Part 2 with the rest of the wedding album layouts will be posted next week! Have a wonderful weekend.
