The Story: I was asked to be a bridesmaid in a very dear friend’s wedding. Mr. P and I flew to Atlanta for a weekend’s worth of wedding activities. It was my first time being in a wedding! Other than my own, of course.
Three Pages, Could Have Been Six: I originally planned one page per event in the wedding. I went to a bridesmaids lunch, rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, the wedding, reception, after parties every night, plus seeing a bit of Atlanta. I stepped outside of the box here and mixed everything together. I realized that it wasn’t my wedding so I didn’t have to break it down into ever detail, nor did I have to use every piece of ephemera I saved.
Different Sizes, Black and White: I mixed photo sizes and mixed color and black and white photos. It could have been a hot mess but actually ended up pretty cohesive looking!
Headline on Photo: This was a new design challenge and I love the clean modern look of how it turned out.
Photos of Important Keepsakes: Remember, when you can’t put something in a scrapbook, take a picture of it. The bride had handpainted fans made in China for the wedding guests. She also bought each of us bridesmaids a pearl set from her friend’s shop in China (she’d take Mr. P and I to that very shop five years later). The mother of the bride also gave each of us a handkerchief to carry with our bouquets. Before working on the page, I put the pearls, the handkerchief, and the fan together and took a picture.
