    The wedding venue, Fairbanks Ranch Country Club, is breathtaking. The wedding album design is so thoughtfully laid out and really tells the story behind every exciting event from their special day. Wedding Albums are a lifelong treasure and a wonderful keepsake.

    Thank you so much Laura! It helps a lot that Fairbanks Ranch Country Club is a beautiful location and that Jen and Rocky are a beautiful couple both on the inside and out!

Happy Valentine’s Day friends!  Thought I’d post something new to commemorate such a beautiful day.  I love honoring tradition and this beautiful wedding from Pamela and Chris at St. Michael’s Catholic Church does just that.  For Pamela and Michael I thought I’d share their album design just because it perfectly summarizes their very beautiful day.
