The rest of the mini-wedding album

Mini Wedding Album

I'm almost finished with this album, I'm thrilled with how it's turned out so far. My cousin was married last weekend in New York and I was unable to attend the wedding but I thought it would be nice to make a mini-album for the new couple. I found this Jenni Bowlin paper which was perfect since the wedding colors were black and red. I will post more when I get better pictures.
