My younger brother tied the knot this past weekend! It turned out to be a gorgeous day and I’m so glad since it was constant rain the two days before. I wasn’t the photographer for the wedding since I was in the wedding party but you know I couldn’t leave my camera at home. Their wonderful photographer, Colleen Dustin, captured the day perfectly but still let me play photographer when I wasn’t doing my bridesmaid part. I was so glad to hang out with her and spend time talking “shop”.
Matt and Ashlie’s day turned out beautiful. They both looked exquisite. Ashlie put lots of time into the planning and had every detail accounted for. I was really good at keeping my own composure until their vocalist sang . . . then it hit me. As the words were sung I felt the tears hit my cheeks and realized my baby brother is all grown up. He’s starting a new chapter in his life with a great girl.
As you can see, the reception was a complete blast. All of their friends are so much fun. There was never a shortage of people on the dance floor!
I also wanted to share photos of their “Engagement photo Guestbook”. I’ve been wanting to offer these to my clients and Matt and Ashlie’s engagement photos were a perfect chance to design one.
These will now be available to all my wedding clients. We’ll design a custom press-printed, leather bound book that has pages that lay flat to allow your guests to write a quick message to the bride and groom. Now you won’t just flip through your guestbook and throw it in a closet never to been seen again. These are a perfect way to showcase all your engagement photos and share them with your guests as well as providing them a place to write a personalized message.
Matt and Ashlie’s book went over great with all their guests. I was told there was a line waiting to look through the book at times. What a great little introduction into their lives right before their guests watch them take their vows as husband and wife.
