And I finally finished our wedding album!
Since we went a little unconventional in the photo department
(i.e. had a couple of our photography student friends take them),
we didn't have the option of ordering a fancy-pants album
like the ones I've seen on photographers' websites.
But honestly, I love a project so much that
I couldn't have had someone else make my album anyway :)
So instead, I kept the ribbons from my bridal shower gifts,
and Brian got me the prettiest book on Etsy (which I love),
and I half-way made an album right after our wedding...
and then never finished it.
But now, it's FINALLY done!
And it makes my heart happy.
Here are a few of my favorite pages...
Getting married was a big deal for me.
Wedding planning was alternatively dreadful and euphoric,
and it forced me to grow up a lot,
and transformed our relationship, making it stronger and sweeter than it already was.
With this album finished,
I feel like I can finally close the book on the wedding (pun intended),
and the growing pains that came with it,
and allow all the wonderful memories that I wouldn't change for the world
to live on for safe-keeping
in that lovely little album.
