This couple might look familiar…we featured their wedding on our blog when we designed the book for their first wedding. They recently had a second ceremony and we were honored to once again have the chance to help tell their love story.

The bride wore a fabulous green dress, so of course we couldn’t resist incorporating green in the book. Their dinner place cards featured woodland creatures, and the bride and groom’s seats were labeled “love birds” so we thought it would be sweet to add some bird graphics throughout the book.

For the binding we used a leather cover without chip board so it has a soft, almost paperback, feel to the book and you can see the rough edges of the leather. We love the contrast between the rough leather edges yet it feels very clean and modern.

Overall, it turned out to be a beautiful book, for a beautiful couple, with a beautiful story.

Talk about a fun-loving couple. Carli came to us wanting to document her and Spence’s relationship from the first date to their recent engagement. She provided us with heaps and heaps of ticket stubs, notes they had written to each other, photos, playbills…all sorts of sweet memorabilia from their love story.

We used bright colors that matched their bright personalities. While proofing her book Carli kept saying, “more colors! brighter! more memorabilia!”…so that’s exactly what we did. We used some artwork from their save the date announcement for the cover, and paired it with an “i love you” endsheet in typewriter font.

We love how it turned out!
