Always more books to share… The Queensberry matted album is a classic choice, even an unconventional wedding appears timeless in a matted book.
Amy and Mike’s elegant wedding at Virginia Crossings Resort is bound in black. What’s true for cocktail dresses is also true for albums: you can’t go wrong with black.

Here’s what their combination looks like:
