Paul and I will be married for 12 years in September. Would you believe we haven’t made a proper wedding album yet?! I’ve been searching for the right thing for years, but to no avail. That’s why I was so thrilled at the opportunity to design our very own wedding book with Mixbook! It was such a fun excuse to go back and look through those old photos, and I love that I have a tangible way to look at them all the time now. Here’s all you need to know about designing your Mixbook wedding book.
I’m also sharing some new wedding and engagement photos that I haven’t shared before because I didn’t know how to blog back then 😉 I originally posted some wedding photos here two years after we got married, but realized I didn’t really do too much explanation!
Wedding Book Inspired by Blooms
As many of you know, we debuted our first Casetify collection last fall. Then, come spring, we came out with another new collection, Bloom. This one featured all things floral, and I thought the floral motifs couldn’t be a more perfect fit for my Mixbook wedding book. After all, my love affair with flowers is no secret. I especially love poppies, and Garet, our designer, did a beautiful job on the poppy design featured in our Bloom collection.
My Mixbook Wedding Book
It was so fun to design this wedding book template with my team! Using our Bloom collection as a reference, we created a floral-inspired template with beautiful, painterly floral stickers and backgrounds. The best part about it is that it is fully customizable! Mix and match those floral stickers and backgrounds to your heart’s content.
Discount Code for Lars Readers
Mixbook is also generous enough to offer a temporary discount code on their photo books to Lars readers! Use the code SOCIAL50 for 50% off your first photo book. The code expires on September 15, 2022, so get compiling your photos together!
Our Wedding and Engagement Photos
Then there were the wedding photos. Going back through all those old photos brought back so much nostalgia! If it’s been a minute since you’ve looked through your old wedding photos, you’ll know the feeling. Are you curious? Okay, fine, since you asked, here are some never before seen wedding photos.
This was from our engagement session. I don’t think I’ve shared any from that session with Rachel Thurston at all! Maybe I’ll share more for our anniversary next month.
Ok, now these are from our actual wedding ceremony in Newport Beach, California. We got married at the LDS temple. It’s so fun to see our friends there!
These photos were taken by my cousin, Ali DeGraff. It was one of her first weddings and she absolutely nailed it. I still love them so much!
My sister, Caitlin.
My sister painted us some signs that we held and had for navigating at the reception.
Really wish I hadn’t made that face.
My mom had the idea to do all bundt cakes. Really wish we had gotten to try them. Ha! Anyone else not get to taste the food?
I can’t believe so much time has passed. And I’m so happy to have a book in which to preserve those memories.
Now I want to hear from you: Did you make a wedding book already? And what’s your favorite wedding memory?
Looking for more photo book inspiration? It turns out we’ve done more than a few projects with Mixbook in the past. Last Christmas we used Mixbook to make these team Christmas cards, and these ones from a few years ago. Also see these floral wedding invitations, our year in review, our Denmark trip documentation, and a compilation post of our Mixbook projects.
