My husband and I were married March 20. The photographers took over 1300 digital pictures! I finally sorted through them and printed out the best 300 (!!!) (thanks, Walgreens photo shop!) I decided to create a scrapbook for our wedding album, instead of just an album with photo sleeves. (Although I did order some photo sleeve scrapbook insert pages - there are just too many pictures I love, it's so hard to choose, and I don't want to have to create a SB page for ALL of them. Otherwise I'd never be done!) Here are the first four pages. I'm new to scrapbooking, so comments/criticisms are very welcome. I'm looking to learn, here.

The pages are in no particular order. I'm creating pages as I go through the photos and see ones that I think are related and would make a good page together.


These pictures are all high-fives, thumbs up and arms raised in celebration! The feeling in them all definitely was "YES! We made it!" Photos left to right - high five from Uncle W on our way back down the aisle; two thumbs up from Aunt P (who acted as Mistress of Ceremonies) as we walked past her; me with my arms in the air outside, and my sister with a giant smile and one fist up; husband and I with our hands raised in the air right after being announced; and our first moment alone (except the photographer;) as we walked out the door of where the ceremony was - I just liked our faces in this one. We look both excited and relieved!

Reception Details
There were so many pictures of all the details of the reception, I didn't want to leave anything out. Since I'm doing the photo sleeves, too, I'll be able to put in whole pictures of the reception, but liked the idea of spotlighting a bunch of the little elements - personalized candies, bows on the chairs, all the birdhouses my mom and I created (the theme was First day of Spring), the little papercraft Brooklyn Bridges (where he proposed), the flowers, plus some pictures of us - the one of me eating and him drinking was just funny because of our facial expressions.

The Well Groomed Man

These two photos make up a two-page spread. It's all about my hubby-to-be getting ready, and being all dressed up with his 2 groomsmen. I just loved the naturalness of the pics of his younger brother helping him put on the tie, and his sister in law fixing his pocket square! My husband is going to provide the journaling later for the 1st page (he *loved* being in that tux!).

Thanks for looking!

I like this! I would have never guessed you were a first timer if you hadn't told me. Now you are making me wanting to start our wedding scrapbook.

It's always hard for me to figure out how to create the flow of a scrapbook.  I tend to go chronologically, but I really really like what you did here--grouping like with like.  The effect is awesome.  I especially liked all the joy expressed on the "Yes!" page.  Wonderful work!

What a nice start. We're getting married in November 2012 and this is definitely something I'm considering.
