As the nosiest wedding guest on the planet, I'm obsessed with ANY and ALL opportunities to provide guests with "back-story" about the couple at a wedding. I love finding ways to give out tidbits of info in the wedding program, on the table numbers, whatever. In our busy and crazy lives, it's not uncommon to be attending a wedding for a dear friend AND to not know a lick about the groom, or vice versa. (Actually, I was in this position a couple of weeks ago when the groom turned down the aisle and I said "So THAT's the lucky Bobby!").
Now, add to my list of ideas for delicious personal details, these "How We Met" albums created by L.A. based Isabel Lawrence Photographers. Isabel Lawrence already stages some of the most gorgeous and artistic engagement sessions that I've ever seen, but now they do one better: They will create a magnificent keepsake album/scrapbook from your engagement session with the story of how you and your sweetie met in gorgeous calligraphy. It's not just an amazing conversation piece for your guests to leaf through at the cocktail hour, but it will be an heirloom for your curious kiddies someday.
I think it goes without saying that this idea, with a lot of work and a creative hand, could also become a great DIY project. However, there is something to be said for Isabel Lawrence's amazing photographs. Here are some photos of the stunning books.
