Calligraphy + Keepsake Wedding Card Books

A Collaboration with Dreamy Elk Photography & Design

The long heartfelt notes from your best friends, the congrats and well wishes from your family members, and the beautiful pictures on the front are all reasons we hold onto our wedding cards. They hold so much sentimental value, so why keep them in a box that you’ll never look at again? Emily Ross of Dreamy Elk Photography & Design and I have teamed up to offer one-of-a-kind keepsake albums that you can treasure for years to come.
