Eco-Friendly Two Volume Wedding Album

two volume wedding albums

Today’ Heirloom Wedding Album spotlight is a handmade, gorgeous, eco-friendly two volume wedding album for The Webber’s rustic Rabbit Room wedding and Patagonia Honeymoon. Yep, they honeymooned in Patagonia (and we get to see the pics)!

When Ian told me that their honeymoon was a trip down to Patagonia and the southern tip of South America, I recommended we do this gorgeous two volume set of fine-art books. Ian is also a photographer and I knew he would be taking some truly amazing images!

You see, Ian and I met our Freshman year of college at RIT in a first year photography class! So, not only is he a fellow photographer, he also understands the value of proper presentation. Laura thought it was a great idea too, knowing that deadlines are helpful.

So, I gave him a few tips on types of images to capture specifically for the album and then I guided them on how to lay out and tackle the project. It was very much a collaborative effort on designing both books. To make them consistent, Webber followed my lead with design style and page layouts. He knocked it out of the park!

To delineate the different volumes, we used an inlaid image on each cover and slightly different cover papers. Both covers are made of reclaimed pineapple leaves.

These heirloom wedding and honeymoon books are completely produced in the USA and handmade by a real person! The fine-art printing and construction is eco-friendly completely. You can read more about that here.

Both eco-friendly albums are a custom size:

13×9.5 and 25 pages / 50 sides!

With regard to album design, I prefer to lay the book out more like a fine art book and less like a traditional wedding album. Having the images tell a complete story of the day and of the people present, as well as their genealogical relation to each other, is of utmost importance. You will see few formal portraits sprinkled throughout the book.

Their honeymoon to Patagonia was stunning! Ian did a perfect job capturing the vacation. These are a few of my favorite spreads in their honeymoon album.
