The Value of an Heirloom Wedding Album


Confession time…

We never designed our own wedding album, let alone an heirloom wedding album. I know… it’s horrible!!!! As someone who values printing photos and heirlooms, over the past 9 years so much has changed! With moving overseas, then to Seattle, to relocating my business, to having a baby…I never found the time.  So when couples tell me that they have had their Heirloom Wedding Album on their “to-do” list for years…I believe them!! 

So honestly, if you said you were going to design your own wedding album and 3 years have gone by… lets get it done!

My mom made a quick and easy wedding book from my wedding as a gift for my grandparents and sent me a copy. It was never meant to be our album because she knew this book wouldn’t last.  I kept saying I would set the time aside and design my own, and it just never happened! SO now I only have the thin low quality book that I don’t display and this is not the way I want to honor our story.

So I am publicly sharing a goal

Within the next year I will design and order my own KISS Books Wedding Album so that I can have the level of quality that I give to my couples.

WE all deserve this high quality, heirloom wedding album to pass down to generations and because we know the quick and fast albums don’t last. As I shared online last week

 For my wedding almost 9 years ago, I designed a quick, cheap, and easy album for our guestbook. I made sure it was full of snapshots from our 7 years of knowing each other.Fast forward to the day of our wedding and my guest photo “album” was laid out for everyone to sign. Soon into our reception I learned that our guest book fell apart!  The poorly glued in pages fell apart AT our wedding!!Now 9 years later, there are a LOT of companies that offer albums. I was curious to see how they have improved so I did some research. The most common album companies that people are drawn to GLUE the pages in instead of properly binding them!
