i always knew that i didn't want to create a tradition wedding album - the kind where you lift the sheet of clear plastic and slide the photo in underneath. actually, i wouldn't have believed that kind still existed if i hadn't seen one just today! so when i saw a groupon for blurb, an online photo book company - it seemed like fate.
they have a program that you can use to insert your photos onto the pages. despite never having problems with my trusty mac,* i couldn't seem to get the program to work. it was never able to load fully on my computer. however, i tried it on another computer and had no problems. in fact i was impressed at how quickly the high resolution photos were uploaded. i was able to shift my pictures and swap pages easily. there were tons of fun layouts to choose from, and a warning sign popped up if i tried to make the photo too big.
i used some of my favourite photos from the day (by boston avenue, who were amazing), and here and there i inserted words from our guestbook - the "dictionary" of our language together**. the book is tiny, but it's perfect. i like to imagine sharing it with our future children one day.
** if you click on the photos and zoom in, you may even be able to read some!
