Service of Marriage - Challenge 10

I bought this flocked paper ages ago especially for Amanda's wedding photos and it is perfect for Shimelle's Use Two Photos on a Bold Background challenge. Since this page is part of a larger series, there is no journaling here.  A few embellishments touch it up, not too many to compete with the flocked transparency from Fancy Pants About A Girl collection.

In person, this page just sparkles.  I must have taken a dozen photos of it in at least 4 different places in my home but could never quite get the effect.

The top photo on the page was made by her photographer and I did the lower photo.  I really don't like to take photos in church but I'm very glad I did.  This way I got a good group shot that included my stepdaughter, Jaime, as matron of honor.  With tons of natural light, I knew I'd get some good shots without it being disruptive.  

I chose 'service' rather than 'ceremony' as the title partly because it fit better on the page :-) and also to honor the groom and his attendants being in service.  Their Air Force dress uniforms looked really dashing.  It was a wonderful choice for the wedding.

Thanks for stopping by.  I'm hoping to get very crafty this weekend.  What are your plans?

  1. Gorgeous papers! I love how the colors match the photos. And it's so cool you thought to use the word service. Fits perfectly!

  2. Beautiful layout, what did you use for the lettering of your title?
