Every year, I do our holiday card reveal, and every year, I love our cards more and more. This year, is going to be hard to top. I love our wedding pictures, and getting to use them for our Christmas card felt so special.
Our wedding venue was on the beach, literally down the street from our house. We love the Pacific Northwest, and it seemed fitting to have our wedding take place in the location we love most. So, when choosing a picture to use for our holiday cards, I felt that this one captured the two of us most, looking out over the islands where we spend so much of our free time, boating, exploring, crabbing, and hiking.
We ordered from Shutterfly this year, and love the design options they had. I am always sucked into the foil designs because the sheen just screams Christmas season to me. Our Joyful design felt so much like us, and pure joy is really what we felt in these pictures, and what the season is all about!
I decided to go with black and white because I have really been into black and white photography lately. Usually, I am all about all things colors. But, there is something so classic about black and white. It just seems to go with the holidays.
And, of course, I have to mention our amazing wedding photographer, Suzanne Rothmeyer. She is absolutely incredible, and I feel so lucky we were able to have her as our photographer.
The only thing I didn’t like about our cards this year was that several didn’t come with the foil. I have used Shutterfly numerous times in the past, and nothing like this had ever happened before. When I spoke with customer service they were very accomodating, offering to get new cards sent out to me. But by the time they were going to get to me, they would have been too late. So, unfortunately, not everyone on our Christmas card list is getting these beauties.
Every year, I make sure to save one of our cards to us. And, as the years go on, I am trying to figure out what to do with all our holiday cards. Of course, I want to save them, but I’m unsure what the best format is. What do you do with your past holiday cards?
