Kelly and Tom’s gorgeous Alexandrian Hotel wedding in Old Town Alexandria, VA was one of my last weddings of 2015! I met Kelly through one of my previous brides and had such a blast helping these two prepare for the big day. Ever the planners, they immediately knew a Legacy Wedding Album was an heirloom that they wanted to share with one another. On a wedding day, I shoot each and every one with an album in mind, whether the couple has already decided to invest in one or not. This helps me ensure I am focusing on details and not missing anything of those unique elements that makes a wedding so personal to the couple at hand! However, knowing Kelly had already decided to purchase an album made me even more excited as I arrived to photograph her sparkly gold Kate Spade shoes and classic lace wedding dress as I knew they would grace the pages.
While I traditionally include a linen album in one of my Wedding Collections, Kelly decided to upgrade to a luxurious, black calf album that perfectly complemented her wedding day. Don’t get me wrong, linen is an absolutely stunning choice that is available in so many lovely colors, but certain weddings seem to show better against the leather; Kelly and Tom’s blush, crimson, and gold wedding was definitely one of those exceptions!
Online trends and social media will quickly come and go, but Kelly & Tom’s perfect December wedding is now forever available to their future children and grandchildren via this stunning leather Legacy Wedding Album! I cannot recommend enough investing in one of these beautiful heirlooms — my husband and I did after our Potomac Point Winery wedding and it’s graced our coffee table ever since! Not a single guest to our home can resist paging through it which creates such a fun talking point and trip down memory lane!
