Ocean City, New Jersey Wedding Album: Don and Tracy

If you've been following me for a while, you might know that I have a special place in my heart for beach weddings and more specifically, at The Flanders Hotel, in Ocean City, New Jersey. The hotel has a very classic feeling with antique furniture, and gold trim, just steps away from the boardwalk and beach. The Ocean City boardwalk is so vibrant with shops, rides, and murals on the walls overlooking the beach. All of the liveliness of this beach town draws brides and grooms here each year for their wedding- including myself and my husband eight years ago. When it was time to make some new sample wedding albums this year, I chose Tracy and Don's wedding at The Flanders Hotel- it was SUCH a great day.

I love my heirloom wedding albums. The cover options range from the most vibrant linens, to rich, luxe leathers and I'm a sucker for debossing. You'll see "Don & Tracy" debossed on the cover, stamped right onto the cover in such a timeless font. The photographs are printed onto the pages and the pages are as thick as a nickel. Here are a few of my favorite spreads from Tracy and Don's album. I'll also say, in the digital age we live in, couples don't always purchase wedding albums at the time of their wedding and then they feel stuck a year or two (or more!) later and not quite sure how to go about it. It's NEVER too late to get an album! It's a family heirloom that tells the story of the beginning of your family. If you're a Styled Pink couple and are wanting your very own album- let me know!

The Flanders Hotel, Ocean City, New Jersey: Wedding Album

Wedding albums are so important. They are your first family heirloom- a treasure that will be passed on to your children, and your children's children. So when I decided to find the perfect wedding album company- I feel in love with Red Tree Albums. They are timelessly elegant, yet stylish and so high quality. I typically offer my couples leather, but when I saw Red Tree's vibrant Costal Linen collection- I knew it was perfect for Mike and Amanda's beach wedding at The Flanders Hotel, in Ocean City, New Jersey. The linen color is named "seashell," and matches Amanda's bridal bouqet perfectly- meant to be.

See the gorgeous details below!

One of my absolute favorite details about this album is that it is personalized with the bride and groom's name- and I love the font! The album comes in a really soft wrap to protect it- I only wish my pillow was as soft.

The album comes in a white box, great for storage when it's not on display.

I love seeing what photographs my brides and grooms choose for their wedding albums. This was a sample album, and I was super excited to include all of the pretty little details!

I love how the image of Amanda's bouquet bleeds to the top and bottom of the page. When it comes to photos in an album- the bigger the better!

I love that you can print right across the spread without worrying about the gutter (aka line down the middle). The pages lay flat, so no worries!

I made this wedding album for The Flanders Hotel, so naturally I had to include their gorgeous ballroom.

South Jersey Wedding Photographer: The Importance of a Wedding Album

So many clients want digital files, and I get it... IF you are planning to do something with them. Let's face it, life gets busy, and after the wedding, wedding planning is soon filled with another task, hobby, or priority. Then there is choosing your favorite photos- it can be a daunting task when left with hundreds of digitals and no guidance from a professional who's well-versed in album design. You may have all of your digital files, but what do you have to show for it? The reality of it is, most people are so busy, and while they have good intentions to make an album, or have prints and canvases made, they just don't have the time.  

It's important to have a wedding album... but not just a wedding album made on a consumer website, a *professional album.* A leather cover, thick pages, and great quality... quality that says 'this book is going to make it to my children's children' because photographs are precious. They capture a time in someone's lives that words could never explain and I think that every couple needs an heirloom to pass down and that deserves more than a skimpy book!

Here are some photographs of a recent wedding album from Kelly & Kevin's wedding at Barn on Bridge. Their wedding was so gorgeous it needed two blog posts, check them out here and here.  I love the color of leather they chose, it's so vibrant and fun.
