Gifted with memories

We received the most amazing wedding gift yesterday. Family friends of Trevor - a fantastic duo who credit their 30+-year relationship to how cute Trevor was as a small child (long story) - created a book of their photographs from our wedding. This book - all 100 pages of it - is amazing! It's so great to be able to hold photos of the wedding, too, since we're patiently waiting for our professional copies. I've gone through this thing probably once an hour since we opened it.

The cover:
Pre-ceremony milling around - with the bagpiper and Trevor's cousin Colin, who surprised us by drumming with the bagpiper at the ceremony! - and heading to the gathering spot with some of the guys:
Walking down the aisle with my parents!! We are so well-coordinated, aren't we? ;-)
The lovely ladies:
...and their fab shoes!
Trivia napkins in use
A grinning Mother of the Groom and her handsome bow-tied husband, plus a sneak peek at some of our table flowers (several of you have asked to see flowers, but it's easier to wait for the real photos than showing thumbnails)
Everyone wearing our campaign buttons - and some people getting more creative with their button placement than others! :-)
The back cover. Such happiness!!!

Best. Present. Ever.

I've long ordered the photos I took for the bride and groom to have when they get home from their honeymoon, but had never thought of a book. What a great idea!

What a fantastic idea and a great present! How thoughtful. That would also be a great gift for a couple to give their parents after the wedding.

Love, love, love - LOVE THIS GIFT.

Such a smart and touching idea... gotta keep this idea close at hand for other weddings I go to - now, if only I were a better photographer...

Amy, I feel the same way! Hether's photos are brilliant - some of her shots are ones even our pro didn't get - particularly all the campaign buttons on everyone.

But my book would be, "hey, check out this drunk smiling group of friends! Check out this badly lit table shot!" Oh well :-)

Maggie said...

Oh, and MM - I'll bring it tonight!

that's so nice! where did they have the book made? that's great!

Maggie said...

They had the book made with Mac software on their computer - but you can made similar books via Snapfish, Shutterfly, Moo, anything!
