Our Picture Book

We still haven’t received our wedding photos, and I’m aching to see them and share them with you!  In the meantime, I’ve been looking at options for our wedding album.  I’ve seen some fresh and fun albums on the web, but I’m leaning toward a classic look.  Luckily, our photographer has amazing taste and offers her clients Cypress albums!

Never heard of Cypress Fine Handmade Albums and Boxes?  Here’s a little show and tell about them:

Each album is carefully crafted by hand.  You can watch a video about how the artists at Cypress create the albums here.  Below, you can sneak a peek of the inside.  The photos can be flush-mounted to the pages, printed directly onto fine art paper, or mounted onto matted pages.

They offer a choice of 18 beautiful bookbinding fabrics and ribbons.  Adam liked the look of these blue albums.

Lucky for him, there are no pink options. 😉  I briefly set my heart on this shimmering plum but finally decided that a little blue in my life couldn’t hurt.

We ordered our DVD folio in the ivory brocade shown below.  We chose pale blue ribbon to bind it, and we plan to reverse the colors for our album.  See how nicely the ivory and pale blue albums go together? 🙂

But honestly, how could one go wrong with their fabric and ribbon options?  The materials are gorgeous.

And the colors are just classic.

Are you leaning toward a fresh, modern album or do you tend toward traditional?
