Wedding Album: Tomie + Rusty at the Caswell House

May 18, 2010

I am so excited to be able to share Tomie + Rusty’s Wedding Album with you! Back in March, Tomie + Rusty were married at the Caswell House in downtown Austin. Jeremy and I had so much fun with them and enjoyed all of the unique details of their day. I knew that their album’s design story had to capture all of that and more! A couple weeks after their wedding, I presented their pre-design slideshow to them and they loved it! Without anything modifications, I could send the design out to my album crafter right away. Now, just two months after their wedding, this amazing heirloom is in their hands to savor and enjoy! Melt!

Tomie + Rusty decided on the 11×14 album to better show off their images. To highlight all of their wedding events and their family and friends attending, their design story was presented on 52 pages. They then chose this beautiful black pressed leather for their cover to reflect the Victorian / Traditional setting of the Caswell House. For the lovely pink accents of Tomie’s dress and flowers, a soft pink stripe was added down the side. A totally custom and unique look that is theirs alone and a great way to hint at their images inside.

Here is the opening page of their album. I love using a cinematic image to begin a couple’s album story. It sets the tone of their day and teases you a little too. =)  You can also see how these albums lie completely flat when opened. I prefer these modern albums since I can use full page images that just draw you into the wedding story.

I’ll save the design til later. But for now, I wanted to give you a glimpse at what is possible and to get you thinking about your own wedding album. So what do you think about modern albums vs. the traditional ones our parents had? How about the Mrs out there. Do you have any album advice for the brides-to-be? Leave me a comment below. I’d love to know how you feel.

Thanks for reading! I really appreciate it :) Until next time!

Definitely, Melissa! The look and feel of a finished album is best seen in-person. And I have to admit, I didn’t want to give it up. It was so pretty!
