A Few Pages from my Vintage Style Wedding Photo Book

Now that Christmas is over, I can share some pages from the wedding photo book I made for everyone in my family last year as Christmas gifts!

One of my lovely sisters got married this summer, so I made these 8.5 x 11 hard-bound photo books from Snapfish. I kept the design very simple – no words needed, I just let the photos speak for themselves :).

My little guy got to be the ring bearer in this cool, vintage style wedding. I LOVED his little outfit: the newsboy hat, bow-tie and suspenders – how adorable!

I was happy to create the flower hair piece my niece wore as the flower girl – she looked beautiful :)! Instead of a pillow for Gabe to carry the rings with, we wrapped vintage poetry and music books together with some more of the flowers and some vintage lace and twine. The books were to represent the happy couple, whose college majors were Music and English :).

Even though Gabe gave himself a last minute haircut with his safety scissors, and shot up a couple of inches before I had a chance to buy him some new pants, I think he looked quite handsome that day – but I suppose I’m a bit partial ;). Julia looked super cute too, as always :)!

I thought this was an awesome idea for a vintage style wedding: a Polaroid guest “book”. Polaroids were taken of each guest for the bride and groom to cherish always. The wedding photographer also took several film photos using a vintage camera. It was a memorable day, for sure, and I’m so happy for my sister and her wonderful new husband :)!

    I love the simplicity of your pages. Thank you for sharing. It is beautiful, and doesn’t cost a fortune. The photos are what stand out, as it should be.
