albumswedding albums are such a beautiful way to tell the story of your day…..it is important that an album is a mixture of the beautiful moments between you & your groom as well as some of the special details (that took so long to pick out before your wedding)….the final product should convey what it felt like to be at your wedding….so that someone (perhaps your very own child someday) who wasn’t there can be transported to that moment in your life…albums are simply beautiful family heirlooms….

elizabethmessina“Come away with me and we’ll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
And I’ll never stop loving you

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I’m safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me”
NORAH JONES
