This is a beautifully done book, and so is the photography. I have not done any weddings, but this certainly is a style I would appreciate. I like the "torn" edge separation you added to the book. There are some great photo in the book, with great view points.

Hi Michelle...If I remember correctly, yours was one of a few books I voted for in the Blurb contest last Fall. I love the creativity! I just got a Mac and am not sure what photo program I should get...I know the one you used is probably pretty involved, but I'm game if I can make the kind of book you made. If you don't mind, would you tell me what software you used? I am trying to determine which Adobe app would be best. Thank you. Jayne
Beautiful book! Lovely wedding.
Job Well Done! It must have taken a while to do some of the layering and shading on your book, but I believe it payed off. A great looking book for a great looking couple!
Thanks for your vote. Very nice book, well done. Congratulations!
Thanks for your kind words about my book. Looking through your wedding book really made me want to move back to Chicago. I love that city.

Thanks for your vote and comment on my Uganda book. Your book is well designed and the photos are great. Well done.
Very nice book. I'm new to Blurb and saw this contest and am just looking through and saw some really nice books. This is one of my favourites. I'm really looking forward to getting my book started, now that I know they can look so great. So, anyway, congradulations!
Hi Michelle ,
You book is really nicely put together. Well done. Voted for you.
Thanks for you kind comments on my book - 'The Variegated Sea'. My website is
if you would like to see more. Have I been able to touch any the fish you came across you ask? There is a fish that is so confident in its camoflage that I have been able to catch them with my bear hands. That's not very PC anymore so I stopped doing that along time ago. Unfortunately that particular fish is not very photogenic so it did not get included in the book. The photo of Red Irish Lord which is the fish on the cover was taken only 3 inches away from the camera lens.

I had to give this a vote, just because I love Chicago and there are some familiar sites in here.....Hancock, Navy Pier, Board of Trade, Chicago sign....it's all beautiful (and a beautiful wedding too!)
Incredible! I saw this wedding album and it is like nothing I've ever seen. Great photography and effects! Whoever put this together is truly talented! Congrats to what looks like such a happy couple!
I have photographed many weddings (even though my speciality is landscapes) but this is by far the best wedding book I have ever seen. Kudos to your photographer who was able to capture your special day, showing the love you have for each other. The effects, composition and layout are second to none. Congratulations! ...you got my vote!
Hey! Great and inspiring book! And thanks for your comment as well!Your book further reminds me of how much I miss your city. I love Chicago!
Thank you for your comments on Little Squeak. Your lovely book has inspired my wedding photography!

This is the most unique wedding album I have ever seen! (Sure wish I knew some of your secrets.) You obviously spent a huge amount of time creating this labor of love and it shows!
So much emotion in people's faces, so crisp and lovely...a real page turner - I didn't want it to end. I especially like the black & white with your red roses. The effects are stunning.
This book is so different from all the others. As you've probably seen, most other books are just one pic layed out after another. I don't know how you did it, but the effects in this book are cool....I really like the one where it looks like you guys are growing out of trees! Freaky cool!
I full agreed with Susan as the most gorgeous wedding book. I gave you a vote.
