DIY – Creative over the Hudson…

Mr. and Mrs. Kollmer had a very special wedding and went above and beyond creative on board of the Festiva Yacht…

"Festiva Yacht Wedding Photos"The Bride had hand made most of the details for her big day… Main color theme: pale blue along with touches of green, damascus, rose, lilac… Her bouquet was completely made out of decorated cardboard adding small ivory flowers… For her bridesmaids, amazing wind mills with matching colors instead of the traditional bouquets… Her simple yet gorgeous ivory gown had a blue ribbon for a touch of color… For the groom and groomsmen, small windmills, again with matching colors as boutonnieres… Instead of having flower arrangements for tables centerpieces, she did more wind mills in plain matching colors cardboard inserted into pails… For a flurry of magical bubbles she placed the tinny bottles with a delicate blue ribbon in a cute pail handled to guests while arriving to the Ceremony. There was also a fully decorated bubble machine for the flower girl and ring bearer to play with during the whole evening… Over a table, a cardboard with a tree with photos of Kyla and John during their engaged days, that was the spot were tiny leaves were supposed to be placed with a small message to the B & G… Even the envelope box was made by this hard working Bride…

"Festiva Yacht Wedding Photos"At the Ceremony, one of the Bridesmaids read “I love you so…” (by Marianne Richmond) with sweet touching words… The vows were also particularly special, made the guests laugh or fall into tears, even us, we got a little distracted by them, when we usually don’t take too much attention on what’s been said focusing on doing our job… The Rings were passed on each guest asking them to make a wish for the newlyweds while in their hands… And at the end, instead of walking down the isle, they ran…

"Festiva Yacht Wedding Photos"This a real DIY wedding…  They did hire though, a Pro Photographer making sure the photo aspect of their big day was properly covered !!!

Wedding Album Design – Tips to DIY

We shoot weddings in a Photojournalistic style and the couples point of view which we discuss when we meet. In the process of designing an album, we use the images “telling the story” in a sequential way so that when you go through all pages, you can imagine the flow of events of the day. For the first and last page though, you want to use a great couple photo, after all, it is their Big Day !!!

As backgrounds we use sometimes detail pictures, the color of the bridesmaids dresses, etc.

At Al Ojeda Photography we carry a variety of professional albums in different sizes:

  • Coffee Table Books, reminiscent to art books.
  • Flush Mount, actual pictures mounted on thin or thick cardboard.

Albums are Custom Designed with photos selected by our Brides and Grooms !!!

For Couples that are in the DIY mood using companies where they can create and order their own albums: guys, just follow the idea of telling the story of your special day… and you can accomplish pretty nice results !!!
