Framing Wedding Photos

It's been almost one year since our wedding and I haven't done too much in the way of framing any of our wedding photos. It's not that I'm interested in a whole gallery of our wedding photos, or that I need to frame a bunch of them. But we do happen to have some absolutely iconic photographs--taken by my brother and by our hired photographer--that are incredible photos in and of themselves and bring back the most wonderful feelings of our wedding day. So as we approach our anniversary I'm planning to frame two or three of these and give them to my husband as gifts (I'll have to tell him not to read this post!).

I was inspired by the lovely antique look of the photo of the bride that is pictured above, combined with a white mat, and placed casually on a nightstand surrounded by books. Here is my version of this look:

I found this rustic frame at TJMaxx and I printed the photo with an "antique" coloring, which is a little bit warmer than black and white. I love the way it turned out and I hope my husband does too! The next photo I frame will be one with my husband in the incredible cathedral we said our vows in. My dad once remarked that we could print a poster-sized photo of one of those cathedral shots--they're that good, and the church that grand and dramatic. 


  1. that photo is beautiful - would love to see more of your wedding photos :) must have been amazing to get married in a cathedral!!

    oh and I love your little set-up with the books and lamp :)

  2. What a beautiful picture. It took me forever to frame our pictures as well!

  3. Love the Theology of the Body book right below the wedding photo. So fitting.

    1. Good eye! Yes, I started reading it and it's fascinating. I hope to make it through all of it someday.
