Weekend Thoughts – Breathe and Appreciate Life

May 29, 2015
Blog Image - Weekend Thoughts

Whatever the weather is like this weekend, find an area near your home town or even slightly further away for you and yours truly to go and visit a place you haven’t seen before. It’s absolutely worth the energy to enjoy your surroundings because of our busy lifestyles – we don’t take time to breathe and appreciate life.

However you get to that destination, by car, bike, or even walking… take time to appreciate the scenery, while being grateful of your life and love for each other.

Share your stories on what you did this weekend. I would love to hear!

Finished Album of our Share The Love Story Winners!

May 26, 2015
Share The Love Story Winner - 5

After weeks of hard work, we just shipped a gorgeous wedding album with 185 photos to the winners of our “Share the Love” contest.

In January  and February this year, our contest offered the “wedding photo album of your dreams” for the best love story. Amy and John, “the high school friends-turned-sweethearts” gathered the most reads and ran away with the very special prize!

Our contest winners wished each other “Good luck” when they graduated high school in 1985. Eighteen years later, they reconnected and eventually fell in love with each other. (Read their whole love story here – Love Miracle) They tied the knot in November of 2014 in a beautiful ceremony full of friends and family, and have amazing photos to remember their big day.

Our You-nique Wedding Photo Contest!

May 21, 2015
Blog Image - Younique Wedding Blog by Zoe

Dear Yours Truly Readers,

As you’ve seen on our website and email messages, we are running a contest for You-nique Wedding Photos.  It is a contest for those who have experienced anything “unique” about a wedding.  It is such fun contests that we hope you or your friends join!

When Chad and I got married, the whole “uniqueness” or “unconventional” weddings were not an “in” thing.  During our time, we made certain elements of our wedding unique (well…it was unconventional 8 years ago!).

Nowadays, I love seeing wedding photos that speak the couples’ personality as opposed to how weddings were in the past…the reception halls or banquets dictated the character of the wedding.

I’m so happy to see the turn of events on how much personalized weddings have become.  This is our inspiration in making our YoursTrulyWeddingAlbum covers. We compliment the design of your wedding album cover to the theme of your wedding.

Aging with Yours Truly

May 19, 2015
Blog - Age of Adaline

Chad and I saw the The Age of Adaline movie last weekend.  WOW!  What an interesting story line and a breathtaking story about a chance encounter of love and romance!  We were just in awe while watching the entire movie.  It was light-hearted but full of inspirational moments of aging gracefully (or not aging at all).

There was a quote in the movie that hit home to both of us:

Flemming:   Don’t you miss having someone to love?

Adaline Bowman:  It’s not the same when there’s no growing old together. Without that, love is just heartbreak.

The Boho Fashion Style

May 15, 2015
Boho Weddings 4

Lately, there is an renewed interest of the Boho fashion style in all parts of the world. Weddings are not exempted.

Boho or Boho-chic is a fashion style drawing on various Bohemian and hippie influences. It first emerged in 2005 and was associated particularly with actress Sienna Miller and model Kate Moss in the United Kingdom. In the US, Mary-Kate Olsen is the icon of Boho.

We have gathered beautiful Boho wedding ensembles to give you a feel of what this new favorite style is about. If you have been married, we collected some looks that should be perfect for your anniversary photo shoots or renewal of vows. 🙂

Are you ready to go Boho?

Tammy and Curtis, married 527 days ago, can now look back at their happy wedding moments with a gorgeous heirloom.

The couple chose a “You-nique” cover style which featured two colors of genuine leather. It displayed a recessed photo with an artistic representation of the bride and the groom’s names and the wedding date. The gilding of the page edges is also a highly specialized art-form with a golden finished look.
